Dresden Files books are a hoot.

Second in the series, Fool Moon, gives a fun take on werewolves. Who knew there were so many types?

The Harry Dresden character is witty, sarcatic and oh-so-human. How can you not like a guy who combines the grit of Philp Marlowe with the helpless charm of an Eagle...

The Harry Dresden character is witty, sarcatic and oh-so-human. How can you not like a guy who combines the grit of Philp Marlowe with the helpless charm of an Eagle scout? Dresden is bull-headed, reckless yet clever and resourceful. I plan on reading many more of these books. Too bad Sci-Fi channel didn't renew the series.

I don't see the appeal

I usually like this type of book where the world is similar to ours, but with a magic element and when I saw all of the rave reviews on this series I decided to try it. Well, the whole book was this guy getting beat up, explained in graphic detail, over and over again ...
I usually like this type of book where the world is similar to ours, but with a magic element and when I saw all of the rave reviews on this series I decided to try it. Well, the whole book was this guy getting beat up, explained in graphic detail, over and over again until eventually, by a coincidence he has the right piece of equipment to finish the job and outlast everybody who has been beating up on him. I almost quit halfway through, but I stuck it out because I wanted to see how it ended. I'll never read another book in this series again.

    I may be starting to see why people say the early books of the series aren't great

    I may be starting to see why people say the early books of the series aren't great. It isn't one great big thing that causes it. It's a lot of little things that add up.

    This time, we don't have much of a mystery. Some actions early on really telegraphed what one of the later twists in the story was going to be. So with the need to figure out who did it taken away, all we're left with is waiting to see how Dresden is going to fix the situation he's been caught up in. Which isn't a bad story, but even within that story there are moments of seeing the set up early enough that you know there's going to be a payoff for some things coming.

    Add to that a necessary info dump chapter (we need to tell you about all of these things because you're going to see all of these things by the time the story's over (although it is nice in that even within this one small corner of the universe there's a large amount of room for variation)) and starting to notice that the female characters that have returned from the previous book seem to have only one setting when dealing with Dresden (which made me drop my rating a point when Harry has a moment of internal dialogue regarding one of those women) and I end up thinking that I liked the first book better.

    A sophomore slump

    Storm Front was a great read, thrilling and hard to put down. Fool Moon, not so much. Beyond the silly title, it just takes way too long to get going. If I had not read Storm Front, it is very doubtful that I would have finished this volume as the first half seemed to be more of the same. The biggest problem is that it reads almost identically to the first volume with the White Council nosy guy being replaced with a FBI busybody. About midway though, plot lines are revealed and it is a brisk read the rest of the way.
