First of all, I love this Goodreads app for the iPhone :-)!

Okay, let's talk about Storm Front. I like the premise and very much enjoyed the tv show, but for some reason I didn't take to the novel version of Harry, or Murphy for that matter. Plus Bob was completely different, a sort of computer for wizards, whereas in the show he was a former practitioner of black magic, which was how he ended up in the skull. The banter between him and Harry was one of the reasons I loved the show.

I guess this is a prime example of how sometimes when you like a tv show or movie, when you go back to the source material, you are disappointed because you have certain expectations. I don't think I'm going to continue with this series of books.
