I enjoyed Cold Days, as I have enjoyed every Dresden book since Storm Front. Like the title says, the story was solidly crafted. And although I've spent a load of time with Harry over the years, he's still keeping me entertained so I'll continue to read/listen. It feels like there's always something happening around the edges of a Dresden story, and it's that over-arching plot thread that drives my interest. I'm pretty sure I've read everything Jim Butcher's put out via Big Pub, and he's failed (miserably!) to disappoint me so far. Keep it up, sir!
The last book (Ghost Story) was much maligned for being read by someone other than James Marsters. Although I wasn't amongst the herd that were so put-off that they couldn't enjoy the story, it certainly was pleasant to hear the same Harry again.
Thanks to the author, the narrator, and the whole team!
Yes, if they like science fiction/fantasy. Even if they don't, the story is compelling.
The confrontation on the island between Butcher and friends and the Winter Court.
I don't want to give it away by saying more.
Yes, but it was great having it to return to when I could.
James Marsters is one of the best narrators out there. I am looking for books he narrates no matter who wrote them.
Oh yes, a real non stop action ride!
Mab is so bad she is good.....
there be monsters here....
Couln't stop listening well into the night
I actually did listen to Cold Days twice. Jim Butcher always has those tiny details that you might miss on the first go that turn out to be significant later. Listening it the second time was even better than the first!
I literally couldn't stop the recording until the end. I had to finish it. This is a great addition to the series. The ending sets up nicely for the next book, which I'll be anxiously waiting for. I just hope it doesn’t take too long. James Marsters, as always, does a fantastic job with the character voices. I nearly spit my soda out when I heard him do a female pixie voice, but he pulled it off.
It was a good installment in a great series. Nice to have Harry back and struggling to do the right thing again. If you like the other books, you'll enjoy this one too.
A part time Library Assistant and general lover of books and stories.
The narrator used a good variety of voices and injected personality into the voices he created.
Very high in my list of favorites
Harry was back to being Harry....loved his interactions with Thomas.
His performance and voices for all of the characters are so distinctive and rich.
I laughed out loud many time and yes,,,I cried a bit too.
Can't wait for the next installment in the series.
Jim Butcher takes the reader on another wonderful adventure with Dresden escaping seemingly no-win situations. Dresden gets himself into very interesting situations as the White Knight with a target on his back. His friends (and a few enemies) come to his rescue more than once just when it seems Dresden's doomed for sure.
Say something about yourself!
Good question, I've listen to this whole series and been waiting for this book. I got tried of every time Harry crossed a street he a major fight. Once or twice OK but 50 time way too much I cut the last 4 hours of the second part of three and didn't miss anything after starting part 3.
No problems here.
It would have to be rated x and over 3 hours. Guess not.
No sure I'll continue this series, length of the book will have a lot to do with it.
