Excellent start to the series. I understand that there will be 7 in this series and I look forward to all of them.
Yes, he is only getting better as the series goes on!
Jim Butcher always makes me laugh. It was touching when he finally found Susan
I stated in my review of the second book, Fool Moon, that the foundation was being built. Well, in this book, the frame of the series is built here. He introduces many of the major players in his series and even some foreshadowing. I never picked up on those things the first time listening to this series. I'm really enjoying listening to this series a second time. Even better!
Actually, I just listened to it for the 2nd time. So, yes I would.
Harry is by far my favorite character. Actually, he may be my favorite character in all of literature.
Everything! The first two books he is good but he only gets better with each book. I couldn't imagine any other reader being Harry. Actually, due to a scheduling conflict he couldn't do the book Ghost Story and I couldn't even get through the first hour. I had to read the book. No one does Harry Dresden like James Marsters.
I don't know if I had any extreme reactions but Harry always does make me laugh. I like the character. A normal guy with flaws who tries to do the right thing.
I am listening to this series again in anticipation of Skin Game coming out in May. Just want to refresh my memory. I didn't notice it the first time I listened to it but in this book he starts to lay the foundation of his series. A lot of foreshadowing is done. He starts to spin his intricate web. Excellent series, you can't go wrong listening to it.
Everything! This series of books are second to none in this genre. I just finished listening to this the second time. Harry Dresden is one of my favorite characters of all in literature. Jim Butcher is great with characterization. His books move at a great pace. Everything happens within like 2 or 3 days. You will have 3 different things or angles that start off that seem separate but they always fall in to place at the end. Perfect touch of humor.
**SPOILER*** I really enjoyed all of it but if I had to pick one moment.. I would have to say the scene that starts off with Harry in the shower and the demon shows up at his door. All the way through to where he dispatches the demon.
There couldn't be a better narrator for this series than James Marsters. He absolutely brings Harry to life. He only gets better with each book. Definitely one of my favorite authors!!!
This book touches you and you can relate to Harry. The guy is isn't perfect but tries to always do the right thing. He makes mistakes, reflects on them. He is just like a normal person and you can relate to him. That's what makes these books so good.
You can't go wrong with this series!!!
Maybe some depth,
No, because I have read much better books in this genre. Such as the Joe Ledger series by Jonathan Maberry
Maybe the opening scene with the werewolf.
I'm not a very articulate person. That's why I read books and not write them. So, I'm not really sure.
I'm probably going to take some heat for this one but I did not like this book. I just don't get all the great reviews for this book. I'm not saying it was a bad book, it just wasn't for me. I felt there was no depth in this book. None of the characters drew me in. It was just too far out there. It reminded me of a sci fi channel movie. It took everything I had to get through this book and did not hold my interest at all. If you are a someone who loves everything about guns, testosterone, monsters, hot stripper chicks who can kill monsters and a story with no depth then this is the book for you. I think there are much better books out there in this genre. Such as the Joe Ledger Series by Jonathan Maberry. I don't like to give bad reviews but I just couldn't help it with this one
I enjoyed this book. Author did an excellent job narrating his book. Definitely worth the listen but I thought there were too many similarities between this book and another famous book. I won't mention the title because I don't want to give away the ending of this book. Still enjoyed it though!
I really enjoyed this book. I listened to the first 2 books and this searies and thought they were great. I can't wait to listen to the next 2 and I'm looking forward to final 3 installments. I also enjoy the reader of these books.
