    1. I ve been told this series gets good at book three Someone else said book four Another, book six.I promised to read until book seven, and I will But Harry is seriously, seriously shitting me.Harry Dresden is a Wizard private eye who works largely with the Chicago police department s Special Investigations officer, Murphy.He has the most over developed Hero complex of any protagonist I ve ever read, to the point of ridiculous I m almost wondering whether his subconscious is guiding him toward som [...]


    2. Reviewed by Rabid ReadsBR with my peeps at Buddies Books and BaublesSpecifically Robin Bridge Four , Jennavier, Jenny, Lila, oOSarahOo, Sh3lly Not all those who wander are lost , and StevenI don t know if it was the lowered expectations from being told by every friggin body that DRESDEN doesn t start getting good until book 3 or 4, or if it was how much cooler the book was than the TV episode based on this same installment, or something else entirely The why doesn t really matter, what matters [...]


    3. 3.5 starsI looked up through the clear night at the almost full moon Werewolves jumping through windows at gangster s lackeys in unfinished restaurants A mangled corpse in the middle of a blood drenched floor Berserk FBI field agents drawing guns and shooting to kill A little kung fu, a little John Wayne, and a few casual threats.So far, I thought, my nerves jangling, just one night on the job.Ah, the Dresden Files Modern day pulp fiction, and yet so fun to read.Harry Dresden s career is going [...]


    4. Today is your lucky day Yes it is Want know why Well this was going to be one of my never ending, ever rambling reviews This was going to be an ode to the awesomeness that is Harry D I was going to go all blah blah blah this is fantastic, blah blah blah this is so cool, blah blah blah Harry D I love you even though you re not an asshole, blah blah blah I love what you do with your staff, blah blah blah blah blah blah on you But I won t Because as much as I love Harry I don t have time for this B [...]


    5. This was an alright read but not one that has left me eager to tear into the next 13 books already published in this series There was quite a bit of world building, especially about werewolves, but I didn t find it particularly immersive Like in the first book Butcher s attempts to integrate fantasy into the modern world feel kind of forced and these 2 worlds still don t relate to each other in a believable or compelling way I also struggled with the characters in this one Harry was frustratingl [...]


    6. Update 03 11 11 2 So my last update was hastily written, and in anger Now that I ve had time to cool off and think clearly I m feeling bad So here s another, less in your face way of saying it Warning this review contains cheekiness Please do not be offended or take this review too seriously as it is meant in jest If you are a serious Dresden fan this review is probably not for you So you should just read another review, k Have a nice day Update 03 11 11 I ve pretty much had it with you people A [...]


    7. Well, I ve copied my review from two years ago below, and I feel like it is pretty much on point with how I feel after reading the book a second time Not really sure if I need to say much The only parts I really enjoyed were the scenes that alluded to Harry s past I m sticking around for of that down the road, I hope The first half wasn t bad, and the book actually felt like it ended halfway through It should have ended there There s a big scene in the middle followed by a whole chapter of Har [...]


    8. A gruesome murder comes along, and Harry Dresden s expertise is needed A brutally mutilated corpse Strange looking paw prints A full moon.I really liked the first book of the series, and I was expecting a lot from this The premise screams werewolves, and that s actually my favorite supernatural creature Werewolves are badass and ruthless, but once again, Butcher had his own take on the supernatural He sort of mellowed it down, and made it realistic I don t hate his imaginative take on supernat [...]


    9. Back into the world of Harry Dresden through another excellent audio book presentation Between Fool Moon and Scarlet by Marissa Meyer, I ve been reading about werewolves a lot Not that I m complaining.The interesting premise of this book is that there are multiple ways to become a werewolf and it explores the problems associated with each I enjoyed the juxtaposition and creativity the author showed in developing the different types I always assumed a werewolf was just an unfortunate who received [...]


    10. It isn t enough to stand up and fight darkness You ve got to stand apart from it, too You ve got to be different from it 2.5 Stars Unless things drastically improve by book three, I think it s safe to say that The Dresden Files is one of the most overrated series of all time At least the first two books, anyway For the life of me, I can t figure out why these are so outrageously popular A good friend of mine read them around the same time that I did, and these were the words he used to describe [...]


    11. Fool Moon started to show promising signs of improvement over the first book, even though most fans indicate that the series really only get better from Book 3 or 4 onwards I definitely enjoyed Harry as a character in this book as he just felt so real His tendencies for hilarious soliloquy or internal monologues while facing dangerous and grim circumstances might be a tad cheesy sometimes but it was fun and I think it worked for stories like these Harry s backstory was also being gradually teas [...]


    12. Fool Moon is Jim Butcher s second Harry Dresden novel, first published in 2001 to wild acclaim and popularity.And why not Butcher knew back then that he had a winning formula and he does Cool and charismatic protagonist, excellent world building, and a fun set of magic rules to make even the most cynical of urban fantasy readers to tune in like a Cubs Sox game on WGN Even Coach Ditka would no doubt no reveal a hint of a smile behind the sunglasses and mustache and say in a mid western twang, I l [...]


    13. Buddy read with a few friends at Buddies Books and Baubles Harry Dresden is going to grow on me We have been on two outings now and already I see some real potential in this budding relationship between us Harry has a few things in his positive column right now Cool friends and acquaintances Bob The skull animated by a sexually adventurous wind spirit who has the memory skills of a computer and a potions master status equivalent to Severus Snape Chauncy Harry s demon buddy who seems to have info [...]


    14. 90% of this book was a snorefest It felt like one Adam 12 look it up in book form with a wizard thrown in Then we get to the end and it turns awesome making me wonder if I should continue this or not I know everybody says this gets better as the books go on but if he wastes the first quarter of every book letting us know who Harry is I won t make it The last part when Harry transforms, to be vague and not spoil anything, is awesome Great thought process and action.


    15. I can t review this properly Harry Dresden took me right out of my book funk I mean, who can be in a funk while listening to James Marsters No one It is a proven fact I don t even care that James Marsters makes all of his characters sound almost the same I don t care that he swallows and clears his throat all the time His voice is perfect for Harry Dresden and I love him for it I love Bob the skull, I love how Harry cries when he is injured like a real person, I love the world that Jim Butcher c [...]


    16. Jim Butcher achieves something that no other authors of urban fantasy have done at least not the ones I ve read he expresses how wonderful it is to be producing magic in a world like ours.I don t expect characters to be jazzed about their magic skills in a classic fantasy world, where magic is like bowling and everyone knows about it, most people have dabbled, but only a few can bowl anywhere near a perfect score.Nor do I expect wizards to remain wide eyed about their skills if they find themsel [...]


    17. A friend of mine adores this series, and sent my husband and me the entire thing It showed up at our door in a big box, and well, we got to reading My husband is two books ahead of me, and promises me that things improve.I dearly hope he s right.First off, Butcher tries to pile WAY too much into this book I hope this isn t a massive surprise, but guess what this book is about werewolves Now, you know how authors and movie makers, etc will tell you If you show the gun, you have to USE the gun Bu [...]



    18. I had a hard time getting into this one, but it was still pretty decent Harry has to figure out who is killing people and the victims look like they ve been savaged by wolves I m not a huge werewolf fan, so maybe that is part of why this wasn t as interesting to me But I did like how there are different types of werewolves in this world and I don t think any of them can be turned It mainly involves magical spells or curses I find it annoying how Harry is always running off alone and rejects any [...]


    19. This book is a fast paced urban fantasy novel that succeeds because of the likable characters and the well designed world Harry, the main character, is an archetypal everyman with spells The novel builds on the basic werewolf premise, but quickly evolves into a creative and original spin on what would seem a well told or otherwise worn out type of tale The author s skill, ingenuity and craftiness keep the plot fresh and entertaining.The book borders on victim literature as Harry struggles throug [...]


    20. 2.5ish stars I didn t love it Not that it s any worse than the first book, which sounds like a condemnation but it s not The first book, Storm Front, was pretty good it got my attention I was expecting things to build on it in this book and beyond but, if anything, it feels to me like a two steps back situation The decrease in rating is a reflection of frustrated expectations than a reflection of decrease in quality Again, I didn t think the writing or the characterizations or anything was mark [...]


    21. My Thoughts Alot of my friends you know who you are have been urging me to try this series for months I read the first book, Storm Front back in August I wasn t impressed But I m glad I decided to stick with it because Fool Moon kicked major ass Friends, I am eternally grateful for the relentless peer pressure threats of bodily harm cough cough Catherine cough cough if I didn t give this series a go Muah In the previous book, Harry Dresden had to battle a beyond nutso Warlock bent on ending him [...]


    22. Harry Dresden Fan Art by thegryph Nicole Cardiff I love Harry Dresden I love his duster, his blasting rod and staff, his shield bracelet and force rings, his mother s silver pentacle amulet, and the way he keeps upgrading these just like we all do with the technological toys that make our life easier I love the way he talks about magic, and I love the way he combines elements to create his magic I know, I should quit gushing and get to the storyline, but he s just so loveable, even though he s a [...]


    23. I m really only here because so many people swear this turns into something amazing than a large pizza after a long day, so of course they got my interest The first two books are solid urban fantasy mysteries, but I m expecting something mind blowing to follow Harry Dresden, you better not disappoint me.


    24. I loved this book Could it be my fixation with werewolves Could it be how Butcher describes the various types of weres Could it be the almost non stop action Or is the fact that I get of one of my favorite characters Probably a little of all of these Fool Moon takes of at a running pace after Storm Front While Storm Front had to spend time in exposition, this world of Dresden is set up, so we can get into the action Harry has to deal with some seriously nasty werewolves, loup garou in fact, wh [...]


    25. Harry the wizard is back Nope, not that one Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden Wizard for hire Harry hasn t had a lot of work come his way He has been on the outs with Murphy his police officer friend who usually gives him work When he does receive a call from her, he knows it is going to be a bad one Yep, bad Mangled corpse Evisceration Pools of blood Oh yeah, and giant paw prints The full moon brings out than the crazies I love Harry He is an honest to God good guy But he is flawed He strug [...]


    26. Well that was intense.Well you can now call me a Jim Butcher Harry Dresden fan.Loved it, fantastic multi climax ending One of the best books I ve read so far this year.A couple of small quibbles with some of the INSERT Escape by the skin of your teeth moments that overstepped the believability mark and dropped me out of the suspension of disbelief I know it s a very fine line between gripping suspenseful drama and a deus ex machina, and occasionally JB smudges it.But such quibbles fade into the [...]


    27. Pulp, but fun and entertaining.Please tune into Michael Jackson s Thriller while reading this.This is an altogether better book than the first one depth, intrigue, insight into Harry s past, motives and romantic interests, a better fleshed out world, and we also get a glimpse into the arch plot that I suspect will be driving the series.Sometimes, the first person writing can be tedious, the chapter cliffhangers are a little corny, and the language is a bit awkward especially when Harry explai [...]


    28. I decided to give the series another try I liked this one better than the first but some things still feel forced Like Murphy s unrelenting antagonism And Harry s need to save everyone, all the time.


    29. Rating 3 of fiveSomeone help me here These are compulsively readable books, and I grant Butcher full props for the ability to pace a story and parse a sentence with equal facility not all that faint of a praise, believe you me , but these books have some je ne sais quoi that makes them into bestsellers.WHAT IS IT I was interested enough in the story to read it in one long sitting, but upon sober reflection, I cannot begin to tell you why It s not that good of a book It s not a completely new rea [...]
