No really. King's previous novel were better.
This one tells the story by the characters remembering what happened and telling it to the other characters instead of telling the story as it happens to the characters. I found it tedious and not a great way to express a good story.
I will probably listen to this story again because I didn't really follow everything. There was so much history that you needed to understand and between the telling of the history and the telling of the present story in the looking back fashion, it got confusing for me.
I am writing this review upon my second reading of the series. I liked this book because Molly finally understands how important it is for her to control her powers and not simply use them as she thinks best. She is growing up and finally accepting instruction. Very cool.
This is actually my second listening through the series. I am finding new things I don't recall from my first reading. This story for instance is more of a detective novel than the rest. Sure there are mysteries for Harry to figure out but this one is more human oriented. The supernatural is there but plays a lessor role. I liked this book more than the others.
Don't know what to say about this book. It had the usual great characters and story but I just an so sick of vampires. Him did take a unique angle as he always does and the comic relief is still there but I just hate vampires.
Yes I do hate Morgan, but you have to admire how Butcher shapes even the characters you hate. I can totally understand why he acts the way he does even though I wish he wouldn't. And Butters get some character development in this installment. Great addition to the series
I like Jim's books because he develops all the characters he's writing about in such a great way that you understand their actions even while you want to scream at them to stop what they are doing. The supporting characters have such believable decision-making processes that the reader can identify with, that you find a little of yourself in every character. Even the dark/evil characters. Fool Moon is a good example with Murphy's growing misunderstanding of Harry's actions because of her lack of knowledge and Harry's struggle to know what is safe to tell her of the magic world he lives in.
I don't think so for this one. I think I would have enjoyed it just as much in print.
Yes. It was a believable story of real people dealing with what most would say is not real. Roberts, here and in some other of her novels, has a way of making the supernatural seem very natural.
She did well in her performance but it wasn't the greatest I've heard. Her characters were well formed but I think that reading the novel would have been just as good for me.
Keep it coming!
It is always hard to answer this question for a Jim Butcher book because he gives so much attention to every character in his novels but in Cold Days I loved watching Molly’s growth and seeing how Dresden changes his relationship to her in response.
Always wonderful, Marsters reading is easy to listen to. He is the voice of Dresden for me.
I liked the way Roberts gave more plot time to each man in the story and highlighted each ones importance.
I would have eliminated about 5 chapters in the middle of the book that didn’t do anything to add to the story or character development. It just made the story way too long. Then the last chapter seemed to speed up and end abruptly.
Serine, pleasant, balanced
I was slightly disappointed in this last book to teh series. After the improvement in the second book I was looking forward to a more thrilling ending but it fizzled. I felt like Roberts used up her best stuff in book 2.
Yes. This second installment to the 3 sisters story was much better than the first. Better character development and more information to the storyline. The pace of the plot was better too.
I like Sandra Burr's voice but she's not the best at differentiating characters. Some she does well but others you do need the “he said”, “she said” to figure out who is talking.
I like the way Roberts makes her fantasy worlds seem perfectly real and believable.
