Publisher's Summary

When an unknown someone shoots him and leaves him to die, Harry Dresden hopes he might be heading to a better place. Unfortunately being dead doesn't make Harry's life any easier.
Trapped between life and death, he learns that his friends are in serious trouble. Only by finding his murderer can he save his friends and move on - a feat that would be a lot easier if he had a body and access to his powers. Worse still are the malevolent shadows that roam Chicago, controlled by a dark entity that wants Harry to suffer even in death.
Now 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....

Ghost Story Resurrected

If you could sum up Ghost Story in three words, what would they be?

Action Packed Emotion

Who was your favorite character and why?

Mortimer, though he's been introduced previously this book really develops his character and he has become a favourite.

Have you listened to any of James Marsters’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Marsters *is* Harry Dresden and his performance is excellent as always. Although the previous version by Glover was very good this one maintains consistency with the rest of the series.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Although I've already read the book and listened to the previous audio version the story is full of highs and lows. Sir Stuart in particular has some very moving moments.

Any additional comments?

An excellent book that does a good job of showing the aftermath of Harry Dresden's death.

Worst so far.

This is dull. Spectacularly, inescapably dull. Just a long, unfulfilling tale which made little sense and wasn't really of any interest. If you thought the end of the Vampire War might mean a return to good old fashioned detective work like the first few books then you were horribly wrong. A new enemy emerges suddenly to fill the void.

Ghost!Harry isn't very exciting and his inability to interact with the world didn't help. A lot of this seems contrived and the fact that every character laughs at Dresden's increasing repetitive banter doesn't help.

Oh! And it's 17 hours!! That's got to be one of the longest so far and yet with the lack of plot it could easily have been 7.

Read well by Marsters though.
