I set my alarm last night and started this book the instant it was available for download..
I'm well into the 2nd file, (about 10 hours) and it was WELL worth the wait. Another FANTASTIC Dresden book...
The only thing wrong???? That it'll be over sooner than later...
THANK YOU Jim Butcher..!!!
This is a little difficult to answer. I have a wild imagination and easily get lost in books, whether in print or recorded voice. It is not a matter of it being better, a good book will be great no matter what.
I LOVE BOB! He cracks me up and is loyalty is unparalleled!
This is easy, life. James brings the books to life like no one else can. I actually refused to even buy Ghost Story in audio format because he did not perform it. Yes, perform not read. I can see the story when he performs.
Thomas and Harry seeing each other again.
I told my boyfriend about 2 years ago that he should try these books, he was hesitant. Now he is addicted. Anyone who picks up one of these books should be prepared to read all of them and Side Jobs as well. They always leave you salivating for the next installment.
Epic in scope and feel, this is easily Butcher's best work. And Marster's narration is pitch perfect. Glad he's back!
The story is tight, the characters feel almost like family, and the twists and turns will leave you breathless.
Everything. The Story, Charaters and Imagination.
Mr. Butcher #14 is his best - Hand Down.
I hate waiting for any book to be published but when I read Chapter 1 & 2 at
Mr. Butchers Website. I knew that the "wait/pain" was all worth it.
Mr. Marsters performances are Masterful, Personable and Memorable.
With " fairies voices " He must have being doing helium.
Bob - Spirit of Air with a Britt accent -- I want one.
Masters "is" Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden.
To Mr. Butcher: Thank You for a great story. Will never rush you to write a story.
To Mr. Masters: You are simply Masterful.
The danger with any long running series like the Dresden Files is that it will fall into a formula where the variations from book to book amount to little more than moving the pieces around through the same story on different days. In contrast, Butcher continues to deliver unique stories that reveal new aspects to the universe he has created and new dangers and possibilities for the characters. The only frustrating thing, and this is not a criticism, is that the universe created over 14 books has grown so rich and complex that some books cannot contain all the characters that you would expect to see. I wanted to know where several of them were and what they were doing but I’ll now have to wait a couple of years to find out.
It’s not possible to say much of anything about the story not already included in the description. It would be too easy to include a spoiler. Suffice to say that rather than getting tedious, this series keeps me wanting more. On a side note I, too, was glad to have James Marsters back. I have to agree with those who say that he is Harry Dresden. John Glover did an outstanding job with Ghost Story but, after 12 books read by Marsters, it just wasn’t the same.
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.
Surgery resident and health services researcher.
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!
