"In his life, Harry's been shot, stabbed, sliced, beaten, burned, crushed, and tortured. And after someone puts a bullet through his chest and leaves him to die in the waters of Lake Michigan, things really start going downhill. But even trapped in the realm between life and death, Harry can't catch a break. He learns that three of his friends are destined to experience unbearable torment and agony. Only by bringing his murderer to justice can he save his friends and move on to what comes next--a feat that would be a lot easier if he had a body and access to his powers. Instead, Harry must work as a ghost, unable to interact with the physical world, invisible and inaudible to almost everyone. Unfortunately he's not the only specter roaming Chicago. There are malevolent shadows who haven't forgotten Harry's predilection for putting evil in its place while he was alive. And now that Harry's on their turf, they are looking for some serious payback. So the late Harry Dresden will have to pull off the ultimate trick without using any magic--or face an eternity as just another lost soul"--… (más)

I really enjoy Butcher's misdirection. ( )

This starts out with a trope I hate, because it never, ever plays out well or reasonably. Except this time it did - and hurt like a kick to the face in a couple places. Really well executed, though I spent the first half of the book waiting for a shoe-drop of stupid that never arrived.

Thank goodness. ( )

Way too much inner dialogue with this one. The threads of the story were in knots. The action was great, but the explanations and going over the last story was too much. I would have liked it better with about 2/3rds less musings. Never figured out parts of it. ( )

Ghost Story is the 13th book in the Dresden Files series. After being murdered by an unknown assailant, Dresden finds himself back on earth searching for his killer. He wants to fulfill his mission and help his friends, but it's difficult to get things done as a spirit. Dresden will have to learn how to function as a ghost, while still getting to the bottom of the evil plaguing Chicago. Can Harry Dresden manage it without a body...or magic?

This is probably my favorite book in the series so far. Dresden has to get creative in order to interact with his friends and investigate his murder. Lots of twisty, interesting action in this book. This series just keeps getting more and more interesting. I'm very glad I'm a bit behind because I'm an impatient reader. If I had been forced to wait for a new book after finishing the cliffhanger ending of Changes (book #12), I would have had a rough time! As it is, I'm biding my time in finishing up this series because book #16, Peace Talks, still doesn't have a firm publication date. It's been years. Hopefully this is not a case of what I call George R.R. Martin Syndrome where new books are years and years and years late...while the author writes comics, books in other series and works on television scripts.... Sigh.

I think I will stop reading this series and take a break until Peace Talks has a release date. Then I can time my reading so I don't get stuck waiting months for resolution. Love this series! It's my favorite urban fantasy series since Simon Green's Nightside series ended.

I listened to the audio version of this book. In fact, I had to change audiobooks in the middle. Half of what I listened to was narrated by John Glover....and half by James Marsters. I really prefer James Marsters narration. He gets the humor and tone of the characters right and always does a masterful job of acting. Not that John Glover was bad.....his reading was excellent. Marsters is just better, IMHO.

I'm not really ragging on Jim Butcher either. I realize he had a bit of upheaval in his personal life...got divorced, built a house, remarried, etc. I get it. Authors have lives and important business has to be settled so writing can be a focus again. Understandable. But.....it's been years.....time to give us readers a date and get it done. I will patiently (or just a bit grumpily) wait awhile longer, but I'm giving Dresden a break until I know the new book is coming. Not dealing with any cliffhangers until I have Book 16 in my hands. :) ( )

After the absolute insanity of changes, this book had to be a bit softer, but that doesn't excuse it from being so weird. It's definitely more mysterious than action-packed. I am a little curious though, at Butcher's cheeky use of the same tool as in Small Favour. Still good though. ( )

"Got a rocket," I sang, "in your pocket. Turn off the juice, boy."
Show tunes? Really? It wasn't bad enough that you've started talking to yourself, man. Now you're doing performing art.
But the musically inclined me had a point.
"Play it cool, boy," I whispered. "Real cool."
"What is teaching but the art of planting and nurturing power?"
"Names have tremendous power, Dresden. Yet mortals toss them left and right as though they were toys. It's like watching infants play with hand grenades sometimes." -Uriel
“Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden,” he said quietly – and he said it exactly right, speaking my Name in a voice of that same absolute power that had so unnerved me before. “Do not attempt to familiarize my name. The part you left off happens to be rather important to who and what I am.
“It is one thing for you to say ‘Let the world burn.’ It is another to say ‘Let Molly burn.’ The difference is all in the name.”
