Harrison So I love Dresden and found Alex Verus shortly after it came out but gave up around Burned Just because I found Alex to be Extremely unlikeable and unrelatable . he seems selfish unwilling to take help when offered and just doesn't seem to think about anyone or anything beyond his circle. So does any of this get addressed in later books? I want to like this series, especially since Jim Butcher himself speaks so highly of it but its a long hard slog

Joseph  (bluemanticore) | 138 comments Harrison, you got further than I did. I'm afraid I stopped at book #4 Chosen. I figured someday I may give it another try, but it has been quite a while now, so I'm not so sure about that anymore.

Willam Nations (tonynations) | 3 comments I just picked up the most recent one. I'm a fan, however I understand he isn't everyone's cup of tea. They do address his inability to accept help in later books. I might suggest trying the Harbinger P.I. series by Adam J Wright. you might like them better.
