A wee bit of nifty floof. ( )

First re-read since my first read about 13 years ago.

I rather like the fact that Harry doesn't win 'em all. Makes him more human, more relatable. But it is kinda hard to see him this down in the dumps. Thankfully, there's a kick-ass climax, and there be faeries.

Summer, Winter, Red, White and Faerie Courts and Councils there's so much going on in this one! Overall I really enjoyed the book and narration is awesome. Yes, you need to get past certain noise James Marsters makes in his mouth ( )

Yes, I read it in a day. Getting over the stomach flu is a great time to read! Anyway, I really enjoyed this episode in Harry Dresden's adventures. The pace is swift, the characters engaging, and the plot complex. Lots of very cool supernatural stuff going on. Harry's a bit of a downer sometimes, but he does get his mojo back (I don't think that qualifies as a spoiler). :) ( )

Another Page-turner in this Gripping Series.

I've read the previous books in this series and really enjoyed them. However I don't think that you have to have read them to enjoy Summer Knight. Butcher weaves any pertinent information expertly into this book, without causing any detrimental effects to pace or plot.

I added the narration again too and alternated between reading and listening to the tale. I loved it. James Marsters' narration really brings our hero, Harry Dresden to life. The narrative is read with emotion that appropriately reflects the various scenes and I like his tonal variations when reading characters' dialogue. I feel that his acting skills also add a further dimension of theatre to the performance which brings the story to life.

This story has everything that I look for in a great read; some really great characters, a good balance between the various aspects - mystery, crime, thriller, horror, detective and paranormal - and blends them with well written dry humour ensuring that it doesn't got too heavy. Butcher even managed to include a sprinkling of romance. The espionage aspects surprised me a few times, the story leaving me breathless on the edge of my seat too but I loved trying to second guess where the leads would take us next!

I can't wait to start reading book 5 and see what trouble Harry lands in next. ( )

This book is for big sisters everywhere who have enough patience not to strangle their little brothers - and particulary for my own sisters, who had more than most. I owe you both so much.
And for Mom, for reasons that are so obvious that they really don't need to be said - but I thought I would make special mention of candy cane cookies and that rocking chair that creaked me to sleep.

Sometimes the most remarkable things seem commonplace. I mean, when you think about it, jet travel is pretty freaking remarkable. You get in a plane, it defies the gravity of an entire planet by exploiting a loophole with air pressure, and it flies across distances that would take months or years to cross by any means of travel that has been significant for more than a century or three. You hurtle above the earth at enough speed to kill you instantly should you bump into something, and you can only breathe because someone built you a really good tin can that has seams tight enough to hold in a decent amount of air. Hundreds of millions of man-hours of work and struggle and research, blood, sweat, tears, and lives have gone into the history of air travel, and it has totally revolutionized the face of our planet and societies.

But get on any flight in the country, and I absolutely promise you that you will find someone who, in the face of all that incredible achievement, will be willing to complain about the drinks.

The drinks, people.
The last thing the twenty-first century wants to admit is that it might not know everything.
