"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"--… (mais)

A good plot twist to mix up the series a bit, but damn can it be sad. ( )

In reading this book, I came to realize one of things I love about Harry Dresden. For all of his obvious (and often self-described) flaws, he is relentlessly focused on other people. He doesn't throw himself into harm's way for grand, high-fantasy, altruistic reasons. He's not out to save the world, at least not directly. Rather, he acts because of an immediate and visceral concern for those around him. Usually, he is moving to save those he loves and, in the process, saves a wider community as well. Nevertheless, time and again Dresden is faced with both the possibility of violence being done to a loved one and the knowledge that he can prevent their pain. Regardless of the personal consequences, he is almost compulsively motivated to act. It's a much more personal sort of bravery which underlies the epic scale of some of his actions. Does he always get it right? Nope. Often his actions have wildly unintended consequences, but this adds an element of reality to the character (to say nothing of extending the series). Who among us hasn't done something with the best intentions, been measurably successful, but still seen it backfire in a way we never imagined? I'll raise my hand. For all his human failings, however, there is something Christ-like in Dresden's singleminded devotion to standing between those he loves and the darkness which would consume them.

In Ghost Story, this character trait is brought into sharp relief and actively ruminated upon because of Harry's limited abilities to affect the world. He's a ghost, you see, and struggles to deal with the fact that he cannot directly impact the mortal plane of existence. For someone used to direct, usually forceful action, this is a difficult pill to swallow. Don't worry, though. This is still [a:Jim Butcher|10746|Jim Butcher|http://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1205261964p2/10746.jpg], and it's still Harry Dresden. Chicago's only wizard in the phonebook doesn't get all weepy on us and, instead, finds a way to make his presence known. In the end, it is another excellent entry in the series, as entertaining and well-paced as always. ( )

This book has such a different feel and flow than the rest of the series, in a good way. Very fun spin. ( )

I, um, kind of finished this one sitting because I couldn't let Harry stay a ghost for long. Definitely interesting to see said character work without their usual tools. ( )

Changes ended with a bang (literally) - some consider it a cliffhanger (despite Mr. Butcher's claims it sorta qualifies..). Ghost Story picks up where Changes leaves off. Its a good novel. We get character development from several recurring characters, Harry still angst's, the Nevernever gets explored from a different angle, we even visit Bob's skull (wow amazing !!), and there's a lot of action. (of course!) Harry is always up to the tip of his staff with trouble.. :D

Which brings me to Bob. WHAT ABOUT BOB! (Bob was epic in this book btw) Harry! You didn't even [ok can't say I don't want to give spoilers]..

Mr. Butcher how could you leave us hanging about Bob!!!

(have you guessed I'm a Bob fan yet?) ( )

"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.”
