Re: Dresden Files (Jim Butcher) 2.0

Read the first two chapters of Cold Days near the end of a copy of Ghost Story... Oh yeah, I think I'm gonna love this one.

In particular I was fond of:
Spoiler: show
Cat Sith being Harry's Batman, that just screamed awesome on so many levels. It's also really nice to finally see the term "batman" used in the traditional sense without that superhero dude being involved.

Re: Dresden Files (Jim Butcher) 2.0

And James is back recording the audiobook next week. All is good in Dresdenville.

Well... relatively speaking...

Re: Dresden Files (Jim Butcher) 2.0

Want to get a hold of the next Dresden Files book so bad ... that I jumped the gun and tried to put one on hold at my local library, forgetting that it isn't coming out until November .

So, I'll be trying again then, once they get the book in.

I have been waiting FAR too long for this. And the second preview chapter needed to be longer

Re: Dresden Files (Jim Butcher) 2.0

If the series used chapter titles, Cold Days chapter 3 would be called "Infuriatingly Short".

Re: Dresden Files (Jim Butcher) 2.0

Hello. Just digging this up again to say: I'm 116 pages in. And Jim is completely stark raving bonkers. Absolutely doolally. Wackier than a loony tune.

And I love it.

Re: Dresden Files (Jim Butcher) 2.0

Just finished. I stand by my previous statement. He's also brilliant.

And I really need to stop pulling all-nighters to read books...

Re: Dresden Files (Jim Butcher) 2.0

Finally found the time to read. Ah, the pleasure. In parts - maybe the interactions with some good friends - it's how I wished Ghost Story to be. Makes me looking forward the next instalment a lot once more.

Spoiler: show
So Mac is an 'Observer' apparently. But who was he before? That's actually what I'd liked to know - and why or how he got a choice to get "out" and do not care about what ever he had to care beforehand. That's obviously not an easy thing to get when you're engaged in magic / faerie / whatsnot business. And what's that with Odin being Kringle? How many peeps do we know by now who fulfill more than one role in Dresden's world?

Spoiler: show
The X-Files nods, when Harry was talking with Murphy about the possibility of a relationship... just priceless , and the rest of the book as a whole.
