I laugh out loud
I love all the characters but of course Harry is the best!
All the books Jim Butcher writes are very funny, grabs you, sits you down, & makes you pay attention to what the story.
Awesome! So glad to see that book 13 was a dismal fluke as Butcher is back in true form. Once again this installation has everything you would expect; familiar characters, Harry in another impossible situation, the pending ending of the world by mysterious forces... perfect!! This is why I love this series. Great plot twists and turns that ring true and bring in tons of elements from the previous books. Now that I'm finally caught up with the series I feel the pain of having to WAIT! It was nice to start the next as soon as I finished one.
In a heart beat
I love the story line and the way that each characters comes alive (but they don't each get chapters of back story)
When I think of Dresden I hear his voice. Great at giving each character a person voice (other narrators blend voice and it gets hard to understand who is talking)
I would love to but it is a long book.
Cold Days definitely ranks in the top 3 of all the audiobooks I have listened to so far. I love this series and I have to say that Jim Butcher is doing an awesome job of keeping Harry Dresden interesting, yet comfortable. We know what to expect from Harry. The surprise and excitement comes from the proverbial question, "how in the world is he gonna get outta this mess?!"
I like that Harry is growing, even in death, and so are the characters. As these characters experience life....and death....you see how these experiences impact them. It makes the characters feel real. It certainly makes you want to root for the home team...the good guys...Harry's crew!
I love Harry, no doubt. James Marsters gives Harry a nicely human persona that makes you wanna give him a hug....or slap him, especially on those really rough days.
This is a book that I wanted to listen to in several sittings. There is a lot to digest and I did not want to miss anything trying to speed through it. I have actually listened to it more than once and I have enjoyed the book each time.
I was afraid that Jim Butcher would allow this series to fall to the wayside when he began his new series. I dreaded that day coming when Mr. Butcher would decide to kill Harry Dresden off for good....or at least in a way that he is no longer reachable to us. Thank you Mr. Butcher for not totally killing off Harry and for refreshing this story line in a way that I never would have imagined. I am so looking forward to reading Skin!
James Marsters takes these books to a whole new level.
DemonReach and the story behind the island
The twist at the end
This is by far one of the best book series I have ever listened too.
Can't wait for the next installment of the Dresden Files. The writing is top notch with unexpected twists and turns and the narration is spot on. Truly entertaining!
I'm a country potter, gardener, flute player and tin tinker living with my husband, an electrical engineer & cabinet maker.
This is not my kind of story at all. I can't even remember how I got started. It might have been because of James Marsters' and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. This is well written and full of similes. I love a good simile. It's not serious but it is fun and a great way to spend a summer working in the yard and traveling the underworld with Harry.
Very good and nerdy book, you have to have a certain level of tolerance for that kind of stuff. I really enjoyed it
The characters was really good
It was very good as usual
No parts in particular, overall good read
Love listening to audio books at work or on the road.
yes... yes I would
Harry is back, Back to kick ass and take names. With his mantle he is more powerful and kick ass then ever.
I'm just a fan girl who write romance and reads too much.
I will lissen to Cold day several times but disliked the books slow start. By chapter 13 the story got rolling and Mr. Butcher finally got rolling in his usual style of fun exciting writing.
I would rate this book as the most difficult book in the series to read and didn't get me involved with the story until about chapter 13. If you love Dresden hang in there the book gets better the more you read it but the first 10+ chapters are not fast moving and do not leaving you on Butcher typical cliff hangers. Once your past the first third of the book thing suddenly snap back to the style and fast pace Butcher is know for. I strongly suggest getting the audio book James Marsters help keep you interested through the slow parts.
Mr. Marsters brings a slow book to life. I tried to read this book several times but once i got this audio book it was great to listen too.
Once Harry got out of Fairy things got much more exciting and the book got funny and full of action.
Do buy the audible book and forget trying to wade through the written book, James Masters brings even this book alive.
