Description

Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden is Chicago's only openly practicing wizard. He is also dead broke. His vast knowledge and magical skills are unfortunately matched by his talent for making powerful enemies and alienating friends. With little more than his integrity left, he accepts an offer of work from Lt. Karin Murphy of Chicago's Special Investigations Unit. He wants to redeem himself in Murphy's eyes and make enough money to quiet his rumbling stomach.

Soon he finds himself pinned between trigger-happy FBI agents, shape-shifiting motorcycle gang members, a threatened mobster boss, and an heir to an ancient curse along with his primal fiance. Throw in environmental activists and a pair of young werewolves in love and you have something of Fool Moon.

One of the best books I've read in a long time!

I first discovered The Dresden Files series on NetFlix and was instantly hooked. I was nervous about reading Jim Butcher's books after seeing the series, worrying that my preconceptions and possible knowledge of plotlines might take away from the experience, but there's so much more to the characters and stories that I didn't even think of the TV series as I listened. Wonderful characters, wonderful stories, wonderful prose. I liked Marster's narration better in the second book. In fact, as much as I loved the first book, I found the second far more enjoyable, suspenseful, and thought provoking.

I'm liking Harry more and more

I was looking for another engaging series to try after reading all of Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse books and found Jim Butcher's books.

Harry Dresden, a wizard/detective in Chicago, is a very quirky, compelling main character who gets himself in one unbelievable predicament after another. I found the writing style of this second Dresden book to be decidedly improved from the first (Storm Front). Although there is still some hackneyed detective-genre prose to make me cringe at times, I am won over by Jim Butcher's talent for painting these characters, creating an intriguing paranormal universe, and some twisty-turny storylines that keep you guessing.

Fool Moon (nice pun, BTW) is about Harry's search to discover the source of a recent spate of killings, presumably by a werewolf. You will learn more about the different flavors of werewolf than you ever thought you wanted to know, and how they kill their prey (warning: not for the squeamish!)

I'm going to download the rest of the Dresden series because I just have to know what happens next to Harry and how he'll get out of it!

Good story reader saliva issue

The story was good but the reader needed to drink some water or something. He keeps lip smacking throughout the book which is like listening to someone eat hot wings. Very distracting.

too much drama!

I don't know if detective Murphy it's supposed to be likeable or easy to relate to but her bitchyness in combo with Dresdens self loathing nature completely ruin this book.

Awful, just awful

I wanted to quit this book so many times but I powered through it, this is a series that has been recommended to me over and over again. I really hope it gets better soon or I am quitting. There are some good things here, but they are utterly undone by frustrating and annoying characters. Somewhere around the 50th time Dresden slipped into a "poor me" monologue of him blaming himself for things that are usually in no way his fault, I decided that he might be the whiniest character I have ever read. But at least he is somewhat redeemable, with his never give up attitude, no matter what is in front of him he just keeps going and fighting. Which is good because the other annoying quality to his character in this book is he is always almost dead, from almost go in this book he is always one inch from death, which would be a great tension builder if it wasn't so overused here. But the thing about this book that made me want to hurl my headphones across the room is Murphy, she is one of the most infuriating and insufferable characters I have ever put up with in a book. She is way too much of a hot headed to be remotely believable as the great detective that Dresden says she is. The second something supernatural happens that Dresden didn't tell her about she is punching, trying to arrest him, or saying she can't trust him. Jim Butcher does such a huge disservice to what should be a strong female character by making her unreasonable and distrusting, and the only reason he does this is to advance the plot. If Murphy and Dresden are working together the plot of this book is resolved much easier and quicker, so she is turned into a character whose death I wished for on every page just to push the plot along. The next book in this series better be worlds better or I think I am done. This is the worst book I have suffered through in years.

Another great novel of the Dresden Files

This novel is a turning point in the series. It is the second book in the Dresden Files and paves a strong foundation for turning a fairly light fantasy series into a substantial series with characters that live and breath. Murphy and Dresden begin to define the kind of friendship that will blossom into something very special.

Harry becomes something a bit more than just a brooding wizard as he begins to realize his responsibilities not just to trying to make a living but to his friends and his community of wizards.

James Marsten continues his excellent talent of reading these books and I disagree with a previous review that his delivery was shaky. His performance was stronger than the first book, Storm Front, and it continues to get better through the rest of the series.

I hope Audible gets all of the series. You should, too!

Done with Mr. Dresden

Any additional comments?

I have to admit I came into The Dresden Files expecting something really great but in the end it really just isn't for me. Dresden is a bit of an ass and spends most of the book in an emo mess of self loathing about how everything wouldn't be so screwed up if he was just able to figure out the convoluted mystery sooner.

Then there is Karrin Murphy. Ms. Murphy is far to quick to just assume Dresden is an evil, murdering, bastard when in truth he is just a crappy friend who can't just tell her what is actually going on which is what she is paying him to do.

Oh and lets not forget Mr. Masters. The breathing, oh the breathing. Why in the world did the editor allow all of the damn breathing and swallowing to stay in the book? Don't get me wrong, it isn't half as bad as the first book but it really pulled me out of the story. At least the production value for this book was a bit better than the first because it didn't sound like a bootleg of a 1950s radio program.

Alas, I have to say that I really don't think I am going to continue the Dresden Files. I had high hopes but it really just seems like a chore to continue with the series. It isn't the worst thing in the world and I fully understand that a lot of people really love the series but it's just not for me.

Ridiculously frustrating main character

Narrator: James Marsters does a masterful job in the story telling. Story: I generally like stories involving the supernatural. I’ve found the Dresden File stories I’ve gone thru so far (first three) to be unbelievably frustrating. I don’t see how an author can write a character who is suppose to be a more Intelligent one (wizards are suppose to generally possess an above average intelligence) be so absolutely stupid!?!? The Character of Harry Dresden acts more like a brain addled barbarian then then astute wizard. I find this portrayal to be so frustrating that I’ve given up on reading or listening to anymore of these stories.

Pity Party

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Dresden's moaning. He goes on about how its all his fault that other people have died. He is also on his last leg, yet has energy to save the day one more time. I think Butcher pushed it in this book.

Would you be willing to try another book from Jim Butcher? Why or why not?

Possibly, but if its another pity party - count me out of the Dresden series.

Which scene was your favorite?

Nothing comes to mind

Do you think Fool Moon needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No, because it would involve more self pity.

Reasonably good book, poor performance

What did you like best about Fool Moon? What did you like least?

After enjoying the Codex Alera series, I hoped that I was going to enjoy the Dresden Files. Unfortunately, I can't say that I have, and I'm not going to buy any more of the books in this series. In fairness to the author, my primary issue with the books is the reader. Maybe I have been spoiled by George Guidall, Kate Reading, and others, but Marsters' narration is so distracting that it keeps me from appreciating the author's work. That having been said, I can only rate the book itself as good, as opposed to very good or excellent. Some of the things that the characters do are simply implausible. Granted this is a book series about a wizard, but still, the actions of the people in the book need to be consistent with human nature. For example, an FBI agent would not draw her gun and try to kill a police lieutenant simply because they had gotten into a tussle. So, net-net, the first two books were disappointing.

Fantasy + gazing at women's bodies

Harry Dresden, wizard detective, has the mind of a teenager in puberty. The introduction of every female character starts with an analysis of their body proportions and lovely breasts. He says about himself repeatedly that he's the old fashioned gentleman, who likes to help a damsel in distress, so it seems like all "good" women in the series are sexy damsels (at one point or the other), all "evil" women are terrible sexy femmes fatale. They do all have variety, motives and character, but their amazing bodily attributes overshadow that.

Don't get me wrong: I think fantasy and sex is a great combination! Would have prefered less of the horny gaze and more spell variety though.

Wolves, Gangs and naked people.

Well, after the fulminant start of the first book, I was eager to listen to book two that continues the story around the pulpy wizard Harry Dresden. And I was not disappointed. The most characters of the first book were there again, to drive on the global story and to solve a mystery noir story, marvously read by James Marsters, who performs so well, that one could actually believe him to be a spell casting PI in real live. As the story unfolds one gets a little lost in all the different kind of "species" (I don't want to spoil too much) and gangs, groups, cops and mobsters that it could be a little confusing from time to time, but all in all the story is easy to follow and cliché enough to keep the overview. Great book definitely worth a listen! Ah and the naked people...well...I guess you need to find out yourself :)))

Not as good as the first part

Harry Dresden's 2nd story is about werewolves. As with the first part it starts rather slowly and every now and again Harry has an ace up the sleeve. One thing that really annoyed me was how stupidly his "friend" Karen Murphy reacts.
To sum up: a nice read but no Pulitzer prize. Don't expect too much.
I'll try the third part. If this doesn't get any better, I will quit reading about Harry Dresden.
One good thing at the end though: The reader James Marsters is quite good and can be recommended.

Harry Dresden und die Werwölfe

Haben Sie die Zeit genossen, in der Sie dieses Hörbuch gehört haben? Warum oder warum nicht?

Ja, hab ich. Harry Dresden ist so witzig, cool, enthusiastisch, sympathisch, dass du einfach gern Zeit mit ihm verbringst. Ich lieb auch die Vernetzung von Magie und der heutigen Welt. Die letzten zwei Stunden hab ich aber eher weniger genossen. Harry war den Umständen viel zu lange ausgeliefert und hat aktiv nicht so viel gemacht.Harrys Sicht über Frauen ist auch ganz furchtbar. Er hält sie konstant klein und will sie beschützen. Damit bringt er sich und alle anderen noch weiter in Gefahr. Immerhin erkennt er dies im Nachhinein immer.

Wie haben Sie auf das Ende des Hörbuchs reagiert? (ohne dabei natürlich zu viel zu verraten!)

Wie gesagt, ewig lange Kampfszenen, vor allem ohne Magie, mag ich nicht so.

Haben Sie vorher schon ein Hörbuch mit James Marsters gehört? Wie würden Sie beide vergleichen?

Ich habe Storm Front gelesen. James Marsters ist ein toller Sprecher. Es klingt eher, als ob er die Geschichte erzählt und nicht nur abliest.

Hat Fool Moon Sie zu etwas Bestimmtem inspiriert?

Ich werde wohl Bücher und Filme mit Werwölfen meiden.Und weitere Fresden Files Bücher lesen.

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Ich finde die Reihe weiterhin Klasse.Harry war nur sehr inaktiv. Ich würde mich in der weiteren Büchern über einen Fall freuen, den er aktiv aufklärt.

En Heuler

Harry Dresden, laut Visitenkarte Magier, ist eigentlich ein klassischer Privatschnüffler der in Sachen Gerechtigkeit und Wahrheit mit, neben und gegen Polizei-Freund/Feind (hier: -in) handeln muss. Sehr spektakulär bisweilen - sozusagen Mike Hammer auf magisch.

In diesem Fall geht es um Werwölfe (daher auch der Titel der deutschen Übersetzung "Wolfsjagd"), aber bis ihm das klar wird steckt er schon tief in Schwierigkeiten ...

Den ersten Teil der Dresden-Saga hatte ich in Print gelesen und es hat mich nicht eben vom Hocker gebaut, aber dieser Band ist von James Marsters derart genial vorgetragen, dass ich vor Begeisterung heule und mir den nächsten Teil ordere!

good fun but badly read

great fun stories but this narrator is terrible. he has no rhythm and accentuates in weird places. sounds like a he just learnt to read and hasn't quite got it right yet.
