My single favorite audio book to this point.
First and foremost this is a worthy successor to changes. Not that ghost story did not have its moments but the sheer scope and brilliance of this work compares to Changes as Butchers best. It is tough to compare Cold Days to another author, as Jim Butcher is currently the definitive Urban Fantasy in the world today.
Everything, I have already laughed out loud numerous times. His willingness to do voices for the dew drop fairies were of particular note.
Yes, several but hard to describe without spoilers.
I have finished the book and am about 10 hours into the audio book and felt I had enough of a base to give the audio book a review. Put simply this is the best audio book released this year and among my favorites of all time. I would recommend to anyone.
The name "Maeve" is pronounced "May." This inaccuracy really throws a monkey wrench into the enjoyment of the story. The producer needs to be flogged.
James Marsters is back.
Molly. Her evolution as a character has come the longest.
Nicely ties everything together from the pervious 13 books (well in truth mostly from books 1-12).
I did not read the print version, however, this performance was outstanding as usual.
For me when Harry reunites with Mouse!
The battle with the Outsiders off the island.
I wish I could have! Work always interferes with my books....
Can not wait for another!
Dresden is back with some new skills and an impossible task to perform. We are giving a better look at things which have been hinted at throughout the series. A few more clues about the black council and deeper look at the fairy queens.
As I read and reread the Dresden files, it becomes clear that Jim Butcher had this series sketched out very well before he wrote the earlier books. He does a great job of pointing out that Dresden was getting clues about all of this stuff as early as Storm Front.
James Marsters is the best way to say is the voice of Dresden. If a movie was made, He would have to be Harry or Thomas.
Thanks for bringing James Marsters back, Harry is not the same without Spike around.
Entertaining, but far from the best Dresden.
I am not a prude, and I think that the audio editions of Jim Butcher's work are always wonderful, but this one had a lot of F words in it, and I was surprised, quite frankly. It didn't seem to fit the character Dresden has been in previous books, seemed like they were just 'stuck in'.I had been enjoying the series specifically for the love of the characters, and the fact they had so little swearing, which sets them apart in this day and age, but the addition of bad langueage sure didn't add to this book. It was disappointing.
always a good performance and he does a super job with extra voices.
The foul language sounded like it was added as an afterthought - put in by an editor or whatever, but it sure was a surprise in this book after so many without the F word. It would be nice to find a book by an author as fine a writer as Jim Butcher without the bad language. I get tired of it.
The first half of the book was very enjoyable, however, even though I paid for the entire book, I was not able to download the second half, therefore was quite disappointed in this purchase, to say the least
Imaginative, exciting, friends
I don't have one, they are all old friends. Surprisingly, Thomas, a vampire is one too.
Bob, I think. James Marsters sounds like a completely different person. He takes me back to my childhood because Bob sounds a lot like the Great Kazoo from the Flintstones cartoons.
Completely different from the TV show. Karen Murphy was not the Karen Murphy in the books.
One thing I especially liked about Jim Butchers books has been they have minimal swearing. This book has gone beyond his norm. If this trend continues, I will have to leave the books on the shelf rather than bring them home.
There is far less swearing than many best sellers. The frequency of the F bomb has increased for his books.
