    1. Book one, Storm Front: 3 stars. I'm not in love with Harry's narrative voice - but then I usually don't care for first person narration unless it's done particularly well (see: Robin Hobb). Plot had me racing alongI pretty much finished it in two nights, though one was a night when I'd had too much caffeine and couldn't sleep anyway. I enjoyed the story and am intrigued by the hints we get of Harry's dark past. Hope to learn more about that in future books. If the rest of these are as quick to r [...]

    2. Like many people, I suppose, I was introduced to the Dresden Files novels via the short lived television series that ran on the Sci-Fi Channel back in 2007. Yes, it was still properly named “Sci-Fi” back then. Soon thereafter I bought a copy of Storm Front, the first book in the series. I was hooked. Urban fantasy meets Sam Spade! What's not to like? I didn't read any further in the series, always meaning to, but always having other books ahead of it on the “To Read” list. That changed w [...]

    3. This is how it almost began for me the addiction to Harry Dresden and the Dresden files! I say almost because in actuality I watched the series on (I think it was… it was a few years ago) Netflix. My wife bought the first book some time ago and had it lying around. At which point I finish the short lived (and now looking back, misrepresented) series and read the first book and I was hooked! I bought the collection of the first 6 books on my Kindle and was more than happy to read Storm Front a [...]

    4. The "magician" part of this series appeals to me more than the "hard-boiled detective" side. Butcher's writing has improved (Book 1 wasn't up to par) and his story, lore and pacing are really good. The main character's fatal flaw--chivalry--becomes annoying as it repeats over and over and, you get the point. Overall I like this series a lot and will continue reading the next 6+ books.

    5. Awesome! I had no idea that I would like this type of literature. I was hooked on the first page of story 1 and continued to read through to novel 6.

    6. Sort of Stephanie Plum with magical bad guys. Pretty icky writing and some problematic stuff, but the stories do move along.

    7. Got better which each bookThis was actually my third try at this acclaimed series. This time I managed to make all the way through the first book and by the time I finished the second, I was actually looking forward to the third.By the end of this collection Harry and Co has grown on me and I am looking forward to reading more about them

    8. I have read them ALL and I love them all. The first 12 better than the last 3. But I kept reading. I you love demon hunters and all that goes with it and a rogue of a protagonistis is the series for you.

    10. You can always get lost with Jim.Been following Dresden since the 1st release and sadly I will be like Thomas to Justine,always waiting or wanting more. Delighted they are on E reader format. Replaced too many books from wear and tear.

    11. ADORE the Dresden Files. Have all the books on paper, but then I saw the chance to start building a digital collection and jumped on it. Great books.

    12. This book has it all: quirky detective, great sidekicks, strange mysteries, action, and humor. Just what I need.

    13. Synopsis:Basically Harry Dresden is a professional wizard living in Chicago.I've listened to all of these books on audio. The greatest part of that - they're all done by James Marsters. If you're unaware of who that is, then shame on you. He played Spike in Buffy the Vampire Slayer & Angel. He's a great actor, but wow - he sure is a great book reader. I can see him playing the perfect Harry Dresden if they ever make a movie, or a better TV Series. Yeah, okay so we'd totally have to fix how h [...]

    14. Hugely entertaining, and the set of books to reach for when you have a lot of things on your mind and need a distraction. Unlikely to provide a soul-changing or mind-bursting experience, hence the lack of a fifth star on this one, but as far as sheer joyful time-wasting fun goes, BOOM!

    15. A Great CollectionThis is the first of two six book collection in the ongoing Dresden Files series. A great value to have.

    16. The first two books are flat out bad. Almost every single issue Dresden runs into could be solved if any of the people in the stories communicated like regular people. The first book is especially bad, with Dresden going off to face the danger, without telling anyone who the villain is, even though he has ample chance to do so. So the hero puts plenty of lives in danger, because he isnt smart enough to say "Oh by the way, in case I don't show up again, I am going out to catch the bad guy. He liv [...]

    17. Who wouldn't love some magic in today's world? The stories are a bit on the darker side with some peril and gore thrown in the mix. It's a running theme that Dresden doesn't always get his share of sleep. He puts his own life on the line and hates for his friends to do the same. This is the first 6 books in the Dresden Files and you can see the progression of the writing as each book goes along. Butcher fleshes out his other characters much more completely the further you get in the series. If y [...]

    18. (Since this is a collection of six books, I've also rated them each individually since I liked some more than others.)Overall: I really liked Dresden and most of the other characters, and I always enjoy the mix of contemporary and supernatural elements. Fairly formulaic stories, but the engaging narrator and vivid characters made it an enjoyable read. Probably won't be searching out the rest of the series, but if I ever run out of other books to read (doubtful, but anything's possible I guess?) [...]

    19. I did not think I would like these books as much as I did. Especially the first one as often as not in long collections the initial story is just setting the tone, establishing charactors etc. I was pleasantly suprised by not only getting the latter but also a great plot! Mr. Butcher's voice comes out old school detective with more than just the standard exceptional gifts of observation. The result is a fabulous cornucopia of humour, intrigue, romance well you get the picture. I highly recommend [...]

    20. I have previously read all of the Dresden Files books. I just had surgery, so I'm laid up, so I figured it was time to start over at the beginning. I had forgotten how much fun these books are. Dresden is a wizard who is practicing as a private investigator in Chicago. He's cranky, snarky and never runs away from a fight (even when it would be a really good idea). The early books are really fun--before Jim Butcher got tired of writing them. I'd recommend them to anyone who loves supernatural/par [...]

    21. I don't usually read books written by a man, or from a male characters point of view but after starting the Dresden series I think I will more often. Harry was a breath of much need fresh air, still within my favorite genre (paranormal/sci-fi) but without the overload of female emotions and too many sex scenes. Jim Butcher is a smart, creative man and I will continue to read the Dresden Files over and over again.

    22. Ok These books made me fall in love with Harry Dresden! Definitely worth the read if you like fantasy and the occassional mystery/thriller. It's humorous, full of wonderful pop references, and has a heart. Definitely highly highly recommended

    23. Must read them all!Harry Dresden is full of witty one liners, and is a consistently interesting character to read. Jim Butcher has created an intricate and compelling universe within these books.

    24. Lots of fun, sadly can't recommend because of occasional sexual 'stuff' in some of the books And occult references might bother some folks. If you were offended by Harry Potter, best not pick up these books. But then, why would any sane person be offended by Harry Potter?

    25. Great premise, but why all the gross garbage? The plot and the story doesn't need gory details to be good. The character is likable, but I have trouble with a grown man walking around in sweatpants and a duster as a hero. The book also felt clumsy and repetitive in parts.

    26. For my re-read, I decided to go with just Grave Peril. The first two are okay, but the third is definitely my favorite out of this set. Got tons of highlighted quotes this time around, too. On to the 7-12 collection if I'm going to be caught up in time for Cold Days!

    27. I'm thoroughly enjoying this series. The first book is a little weak on character development but they pick up from there and I've really started to enjoy how the plot lines come together. I hope the next group is as good as the first 6

    28. Really like this bundle. Jim Butcher books are super addictive, so it's nice when you can just go on to the next one without having to go pick it up. Also helps with the underlying plot, instead of reading like separate books.
