Favourite character/s: Murphy, Michael, Charity, Harry (I suppose!)
Best Part: “My faith protects me. My Kevlar helps.” – ‘nuff said. But really, I think the best parts where any where Michael showed up and kicked arse. Ditto for Murphy. Also Harry has some hilarious dialogue as usual, it’s good to see him true to form.
Worst Part: Skipping three or four pages because of gratuitous sex scene. If I wanted to read porn…I’d go read porn, kay, Mr. Butcher?
Thoughts: I like the Dresden files and I’m not entirely sure why…I mean, I can see why really – they’re funny, entertaining, modern fantasy is cool, the characters are usually pretty interesting and the dialogue is well written and everything is normally well tied up in the end. They’re short and you don’t have to invest too much to be entertained by them…I saw them described as ‘brain candy’. I’d say that’s not a bad description really, there’s not too much sustenance to them, nothing too ground breaking or life changing, but sometimes you don’t want a three course meal of a book, sometimes you just want a little something to perk you up. So yeah, the Dresden files may not be the greatest pieces of literature in all the world, there may be dodgy bits here and there (less sex scenes pls, also…Knights of the Cross who don’t believe in God…rly?) but I still enjoy them. I’d cry if Michael died and I am genuinely chuffed when he turns up, so, Butcher must be doing something right!
