Giving this book another try because I’ve been on an urban fantasy kick these past few weeks and would like to actually finish it. I hate leaving books I own unread, and people always tell me I’m missing out by not giving this series a chance, so now that’s what I’m gonna do. I might even reach the end this time, with help from James Marsters of course.
I tried the first chapter several times, but it just never clicked. For whatever reason I kept putting off the second chapter and then eventually abandoning the whole book altogether. Then I’d go on another UF
bender kick, like now, and suddenly want to get through this damn book once and for all, if only to cross it off the DNF list.
The biggest obstacle is clearly Harry Dresden, wizard extraordinaire, and his good-guy personality. There’s just something inherently unlikable about him and I find his inner thoughts extremely annoying, which makes reading from his POV a real challenge. But then people keep saying the writing, including Dresden’s characterization, gets a lot better with each book. I’m inclined to believe them, and so here I am again, giving Storm Front another try.
ETA: Finished it. Here’s the review.
