I've read this story many times and seen movies as well. This book is a great listen, well performed. Classic Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. I will keep it handy to listen again and again.
I really like this one because Granny visits NY and plays a much larger role than in previous books. I like Granny. Spunky. Smart. Just imagine Granny on a flying carpet. Or Granny in Grand Central Station. Such fun.
Great next book in the series. Fun listen. katie's parents visit, learn where Katie inherited her immunity. And those red shoes her roommates wanted Katie to buy in the last book - they make a return visit and play an important role in this book. Katie has an unusual experience (more than normally unusual for her) and sees things from "the other" viewpoint. Great fun, fast story, fantastic narration. I highly recommend this book and this series. Just bought the next book and about to start listening.
Wasn't sure when I first started this book if I would like it. Seemed so serious, what with the rude boss and all. Then it got into the fun. Gargoyles. I like gargoyles. Especially talking ones. And frogs into princes. Like it so much I just bought book 2 in the series. Highly entertaining.
Vicky Bliss is one of my favorite characters. Her stories are funny and serious and full of action. I wish there were more in the series, and hope there are more to come. This one is set in current time, so that cell phones are involved. Great book.
Xe Sands is a great narrator. This series is quite different from her Lilly Ivory series, though both are based in San Francisco. The main character runs a construction company that restores historic houses. In my opinion, this is the best of the first three books in the series. I hope this series continues.
This book fits in well with the series based in Grundy, Alaska. It gives very unexpected background about the Doc in Crescent Valley. Some of the lesser known characters are expanded nicely. Don't want to give away the ending, but it was very unexpected, surprising, and fantastic. Pulls in some unexpected characters. I highly recommend this book.
Filled in many gaps between some of the stories. Started with how Harry got his start in the Wizard For Hire business by helping find lost children. Includes a story where he and Murphy have a couple minutes of romance before figuring out it is magic induced. Some good short stories and a couple of good novellas. All excellent stories. The author includes some notes about why he wrote each piece - anthologies they went into and his frame of mind at the time. Great addition to the "Dresden Files". I highly recommend this one.
This is an epic series. The first audio book is very long, as is this audio book. Both really pull the reader/listener in. I've listened to both books a couple of times and always pick up more about the people and times each read. person to person interactions are great. Times in history are also great. What a way to learn history! I'm restlessly awaiting part 3 of this trilogy! I don't want to rush the author because I know it will be well worth the wait. I highly recommend this series and this book in particular.
Bit of a disappointment. This story is very convoluted, more so than usual. I'm going to go back and reread this book to see if I can pick up more the next time around. Its good enough that I will go back and reread it, but not good enough that I'll do it right away and for the fun of it. Too many sub stories. Too little connection between the sub stories. And the Bad Monkey plays such a small part in the story. I kept looking to learn more about the monkey and was disappointed.
I've listened to the entire 5 books in the series ( so far) and looking forward to more (soon I hope). Good characters. I like the gobkin (he's a crossbreed) who's a familiar who's familiar shape is as a miniature potbellied pig who hangs out with his witch in a vintage clothing shop in San Francisco. He and his person get into lots of situations, and their friends help them get out. I highly recommend any and all in this series. I read them out of order, and gone back and read them in order, either way works fine. Its easy enough to pick up on the characters.
