Fool Moon
Fool Moon | Jim Butcher
Business has been slow for professional wizard Harry Dresden, who hasn't been able to dredge up any kind of work, magical or mundane. But just when it looks like he can't afford his next meal, a murder comes along that requires his particular brand of supernatural expertise.

Better than its predecessor, Fool Moon begins to develop the gritty, magical world Butcher has created. Another solid urban fantasy, but still building up to the larger story arcs that really impress.

I liked the book but I didn‘t love it. Werewolves. Alright cool. Been there, done that. What I liked was the tiny snippet we get into much bigger things being afoot. Something wicked this way comes is quite apt as Harry keeps having a pretty rough go of things and almost dying. It‘s for that I want to keep reading the series to see what‘s up. It‘s a good book and I adore Harry, but this one wasn‘t as good as the first to me.

This book is a BLAST. Audiobook is amazing too.
I adore Harry Dresden. Bus he does have flaws. I‘ll leave Murphy description of him, which I completely agree, right here:

“Dramatic death scene. Noble sacrifice, right? Tragically misunderstood? Hah! I understand you, buddy. You‘re such a pompous, arrogant, pretentious, chauvinistic, hopelessly old-fashioned, stupidly pigheaded . . .” 🤣

KathyWheeler I loved when she said that to Harry! It was so perfect. 😄 My husband and I just finished listening to this book and are on the next one now. James Marsters has become Harry Dresden to me; if they ever do another Dresden Files show, I want him to play Harry even though he‘s too old for him. 4mo
pppooraikul @KathyWheeler Couldn‘t agree more! I‘d love to see that too. His narration is so Dresden. 🤣🤣 4mo

Second in his Harry Dresden series, which mashes up hardboiled crime with fantasy in a most enjoyable way. Harry is a wise-cracking PI in the Chandler/Hammett tradition who also just happens to be Chicago's only wizard for hire. As the title indicates, this one is mainly concerned with werewolves. The first one in the series necessarily had to do a bit of scene-setting whereas this one gets right into things with a minimum of fuss. Tremendous fun.

There‘s more magic in a baby‘s first giggle than in any firestorm a wizard can conjure up, and don‘t let anyone tell you any different. Magic comes from what is inside you. It is a part of you. You can‘t weave together a spell that you don‘t believe in.

I found him in a Dumpster one day when he was a kitten and he promptly adopted me. Despite my struggles, Mister had been an understanding soul, and I eventually came to realize that I was a part of his little family, and by his gracious consent was allowed to remain in his apartment. Cats. Go figure.

Book two and we see werewolves come into the frame. Not just any werewolves, Jim But here version of werewolves! I‘m actually a fan of Butchers writing. I know he is either a love him or leave him author, but I‘m in the first collective.

Not my favorite. I was thoroughly surprised by how much I enjoyed the 1st book in this series but this one just kind of fell flat. I will still probably continue on with the series since I have heard it gets better as it goes but as of right now I will take a short break from Harry Dresden.

Second Dresden Files book was better than the first, I think. I loved the different types of werewolves and how they pretty much all made an appearance. The absolute brutality of the main monster was terrifying.

I do hope it doesn't become a pattern in the books where the potions he makes earlier in the story always become useful later. That's about the only nitpick I have on this one. Overall I enjoyed it

Ok. So I'm enjoying aspects of this series for sure but what the heck with all the usage of "bitch" by the hero! Harry needs to do some growing. The varied supes in this were excellent though ? #mommyreads #urbanfantasy #ebook

The toddler fell asleep on our way to the park so my current reading environment is perfumed with ume blossoms.

I love Jim Butcher‘s world, writing, characters, pace...everything. He is a fantastic author and Harry Dresden is a wonderfully lovable character. The book is fast paced and gripping and won‘t allow you to put the book down until you‘ve finished the last page. If you haven‘t checked out the Dresden Files, you need to.

Overall this book was just ok. It didn‘t hold my attention like the first one and I found a lot of the scenerios redundant. I still enjoy Dresden‘s character and the overall storyline. I will continue to read the rest in the series, this one wasn‘t the best though. ⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

Ohhhh...you said full Moon? 🤣

The Dresden books definitely lack polish but I still enjoy them and Harry is still fun to follow along on his adventures...Like in this one when he's fighting off werewolves.

Poor Harry. He can never catch a break. It's tough being a Wizard for hire sometimes.

While Fool Moon doesn't really hit it out of the park for me, it does a lot of things right. Plenty of good twists within a very well-developed setting (Jim Butcher does some great world-building here), but I'd be lying if I didn't admit that James Marsters elevates the book for me with a great reading for the audiobook. My full GR review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2070321671

gilroyc I always felt that Fool Moon had too much a feel of the editor trying to "help" the book. It felt off when compared with all the other series books. 2y

Three and a half-ish stars. I like the concept of this series, and I plan to continue it basically because I like James Marsters reading to me. Harry is interesting, although his hero complex gets a bit overplayed, and he is a frigging chauvinist. If he refers to Murphy's "button nose" one more time, I may lose it. Cont'd in comments.

Krisjericho Speaking of Murphy, though, she bugs me far more than Harry. She is mean and untrusting and seriously, quit shooting people all the damn time. Butcher is good at plot, not always great at prose. Harry "mutters hell's bells under his breath" at least ten times a book. This is a fun series that frustrates the crap out of me sometimes. ? 2y
leslieisreading I listened to the first one quite awhile ago and I keep meaning to listen to the second one, but almost solely because of James Marsters. I had some similar annoyances with the first book. 2y
BillBlume Agree with everything you say here, including the motivation to keep going because of James Marsters reading it. For me, in both the first and second books, he displays a lot of ignorance where law enforcement is concerned. 2y

The werewolf thing got to be a bit much after awhile. All the different kinds were often confusing, and the word "loup garou" just made me laugh after so much repetition. Still,I like the world Butcher has created and I'm looking forward to more readings (the narrator is James Marsters - Spike, from Buffy❣️) The title was recorded in 2000 and you can hear a lot of breathiness which gets on my nerves but it adds to the 40s detective story vibe.

Krisjericho I know you wrote this review forever ago, but the breathiness bugged me too! 2y
LazyLimaLife @Krisjericho The audiobooks I've listened to for this series (1-3) have all reminded me to "remove the current cd and insert the next." Hopefully future recordings take care of both these issues! 2y

This is the one with all the werewolves... I loved being reintroduced to Billy, Georgia and the Alphas - those crazy kids who I'm sure will play a bigger role in future books. My favourite part was easily Harry and John Marcone getting on each others nerves by using first names. Marcone is an interesting 'bad' guy.

I read the first book of a series and find it so-so, then I pick up the next book in the series. Why??? I know Dresden has somewhat of a cult following, but it's just not my cup of tea. The showdown here takes what feels like 3 hours. Yet another book that could use some serious editing.

veggieintheyo If I recall correctly, the first three books in the series were written (or mostly so) before any were published. After that they improved. I pushed through because friends assured me that the series got progressively better. They were right, lol, not great lit or anything, more guilty pleasure. 😊 3y

I'm glad I kept on with this series to the next book—this one wasn't very impressive. There were too many convenient plot points and the action scenes felt amateurish. Having said that, Butcher's take on werewolf lore was fascinating and well done. (Hence the wolf picture, courtesy of NatGeo!)
