Apparently author Jim Butcher did not finish writing the latest Dresden Files novel in time for his deadline for it's spring release and so the latest Dresden Files novel has been delayed until July 26th.

Rats. I was really looking forward to reading that soon.

Ah well. I always thought he was an incredibly fast writer, to keep churning out those books. A little patience is over due, I expect.

I just finished listening to the Changes audiobook read by James Marsters and it is absolutely fantastic.
James really does an amazing job and becomes Harry. Highly recommended.

Oh, and of course the book is one of the best in the series. A milestone in the story. Can't wait for the next one.

Double rats. Got a Barnes and Noble gift certificate, but it halves in value sometime in April, so I can't use it on the next book.


Ah well. Still looking forward to that next book!

(Did finally get a chance to read Side Jobs - hadn't read most of the stories, and the new one was interesting.)

The books gradually get better from there. Storm Front was entertaining, but each book is more fleshed out and takes the reader just the next step deeper into a story - Changes is the biggest change, of course. Just read Ghost Story, and it doesn't disappoint.

I found Ghost Story disappointing.
The writing or something, didn't feel right.

I'm shocked, to be honest. I thought it was a fantastic book and felt the writing/characters were dead on ... (okay, okay) and showed a lot of growth and changes, the way something that big would change everything.

Harry's growing up. He had to die to do it, but some folks will always have to learn things the hard way <g> And in his absence, everyone else had to take on harder challenges as well.

Did you read Side Jobs, with the first story about how Murphy dealt with finding the blood spattered boat and the incursions of bad guys in Chicago?

I did.
I really enjoyed that story.
I think many rely on Harry without realizing it and his absence was the only way they would have taken the mantle up themselves. Everyone has been content to let Harry run the show.

I just started reading Ghost Story the other day and so far I'm not impressed. Of course I seem to be one of the few people who didn't like Changes.

Well, if you don't like Changes, or the next story with Murphy dealing with what she found when she came back to the boat, I don't see how you're going to like Ghost Story.

But read on, and let us know what you think after you finish the novel. Posted Image
