    One thought on “Storm Front”

    1. I m not going to pull any punches This book is a misogynistic piece of shit.All I knew about it before I picked it up was the very basic premise a wizard in modern day Chicago, who works as a sort of detective and that it had picked up quite a cult following I was expecting to really like it, but before I got to the end of the first chapter, my eyebrows had risen to meet my hairline I kept reading out of some misguided expectation that things would get better, that there couldn t possibly be suc [...]

    2. I never got around to reading these books until The Name of the Wind was published And when I first did, I was a little pissed First person point of view Magic based on thermodynamics Gritty, realistic world Arrogant wizard who doesn t know when to keep his mouth shut It struck rather close to home Some people say that the first few books of this series were kinda rough But I didn t notice anything particularly untoward about them In fact, I burned through the whole series 11 books at the time i [...]

    3. Let me tell you how a wisecracking Chicago wizard for hire with the most rotten luck imaginable won a permanent spot in my heart, making me a devout Dresdenite Twas a week before USMLE Step 1, the most important test for any medical school student as it pretty much determines which medical specialty you are supposedly smart enough to pursue Basically, the stakes were high and the stress reached the previously unknown heights By then my poor average sized brain has been fully stuffed with all the [...]

    4. You know, the premise of this book actually sounded good A wizard P.I sure why not I like wizards and I like P.I.s, so what could be the problem The problem was I over estimated this author s abilities.The main character is like some kind of emotionally retarded uber geek s idealized life He lives in a basement and subbasement He ALWAYS wears a black duster and cowboy boots even when he s wearing sweats and a t shirt He has an abnormally large alley cat that likes to drink coke and doesn t get v [...]

    5. The Dresden Files is one of those books that s intimidating to approach It has a hard core fan group that will scream its praises from the top of the roof Usually, I would approach with extreme caution I rarely read a series when I ve been assured that it gets good after six books When people tell me that, I simply quietly encourage them to read the Fever Series and avert eye contact.However, after a discussion regarding male readers and writers of the Urban Fantasy genre, I felt I should give t [...]

    7. Urban fantasy is a sub genre that I have been very much enjoying for a few of years and Jim Butcher s Harry Dresden series usually tops the lists of readers favorites and it has proven wildly popular.For good reason.Butcher first published Storm Front in 2000 and it was in this first edition that Butcher introduced readers to Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden, Wizard Butcher describes his protagonist as a kind of occult private investigator, being chiefly active in the Chicago area Dresden s [...]

    8. The first volume in the Dresden Files series introduces us to our hero, Harry Dresden, a wizard who is also a private investigator and police consultant It is written in a breezy, colloquial style that makes you want to keep reading, but except for a few interesting magical twists on the private dick genre e.g Harry s tipster is a faery, lured with a bowl of milk and honey and confined within a magic circle until Harry gets the information he needs , the book is thin on plot, lacking in wit and [...]

    11. Okay, some who have looked at my other reviews will immediately note I gave this book 5 stars which I noted earlier I save for very special books I plan to give the Dresden books so far anyway 5 stars Why Well while they are not Dumas or Dickens but then againI m not sure I d regularly be giving Dickens 5 stars, how much Dickens can we all really take anyway these are wonderful absorbing reads Special Books.I won t be giving a long synopsis of each book I will say they are an original idea in wh [...]

    12. This book was terrible The kind of terrible where I had to force myself to read the last half in a day just so I could be done reading it The kind of terrible that made me reevaluate all the ratings of books I have previously given because I remembered what type of book I save one star ratings for The kind of terrible where I roll my eyes at least once per page The kind of terrible where I literally throw the book across the room when I m done both out of frustration and out of the primitive imp [...]

    15. Earlier this year, I greatly enjoyed the first season of the Sci Fi Channel s The Dresden Files It certainly wasn t Buffy or X Files caliber, as far as paranormal television goes, but it was great escapism fun with some interesting characters As I m likely to do after discovering that something I watched and enjoyed was based on a book, I went out and got the first book in the series.I read the 300 pages of Storm Front in less than 24 hours, and it was such a relief to read something light after [...]

    16. Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden is a wizard He is also a detective, and he s best at what he does When a suspicious magic related murder occurred, the Chicago P.D comes to him for answers Aside from that though, he also has other personal cases at hand My very first Urban Fantasy novel I ve been wanting to read this for months now, and I m glad that I finally did Crime Detective Fantasy is something new to me, but not any Two of my favorite genres combined, and executed wonderfully I heard [...]

    17. Dear Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden, First of all, the audiobook edition of this story is freaking incredible James Marsters could recite the dictionary and I d be hanging on his every word, but combine that voice with the awesome writing of Jim Butcher and I m in heaven, I m simply in HEAVEN The first book info dump wasn t too bad here I easily kept up with the world building and I loved what the author created I loved everything about it, actually My only issue with this story was that i [...]

    18. March 2017 Review This is now my third time through Storm Front, and while my rating is holding tight at three stars, I enjoyed it this time thanks to Spike from Buffy and Angel reading it to me That guy nails Harry Dresden s character and breathes new life into him His carefree whatever yeah here I m reading the book, alright tone was awesome It made the story so much better It also made me realize how one of the only adjectives Butcher knows is the word naked Everything and everyone in the bo [...]

    19. Storm Front is the first book in Jim Butcher s genre defining Urban Fantasy series The Dresden Files Despite being the first in a 15 book series Storm Front was surprisingly easy to get into and even worked well as a standalone story This was my first time reading Urban Fantasy and I found it to be an enjoyable read with a funny, likeable protagonist, fast placed plot filled with plenty of twists and turns and an extensive cast of diverse, well written secondary characters While I was frustrated [...]

    20. I am a fan of this series I haven t caught up yet I think the next I will be reading is Cold Days Many of my goodread friends are also Harry Dresden fans and there seems to be a general acknowledgement that the first three books are good but the series gets better over time I ve always agreed with that Then audible had an offer on Stormfront and as I had heard good stuff about the narrator for this series, I jumped in for a reread.Well this was fantastic the second time round I remember when I f [...]

    21. Harry Dresden is a wizard for hire His advert even says so Enter a very interesting character in the urban fantasy genre Having grown up in the Chicago area, it s very cool to see this fine city through the eyes of an interesting guy like Harry In some respects, he s a very normal guy However he truly is a wizard He inherited his magical abilities from his deceased mother, and makes a living at it Helping people He also works for the Police Department solving crimes of an unusual nature.This is [...]

    22. 3.5 stars Final review, first posted on Fantasy Literature Storm Front has been on my TBR list for ages, but I ve dawdled in picking it up, given the many disappointed to mildly encouraging reviews for this first book in the DRESDEN FILES series, a mix of urban fantasy and the noir detective genre A lot of fans of this series say it really only picks up with the 4th book, Summer Knight I tried reading Summer Knight out of order last year, and doing that didn t really pan out for me Apparently yo [...]

    23. Urban fantasy about a modern day wizard who acts as a consultant for the Chicago police Candy in book form but I enjoyed it The narrator for the audio book managed to sound world weary and dour the entire time, which was actually rather impressive.My favorite part is when Bob, the spirit of intellect that Harry keeps around as a sort of wizard computer database, advised using tequila as the base for a love potion Harry argues for the traditional champagne but Bob shuts him down, saying somethin [...]

    24. Hot damn, that was a fun read I know full well the reason I ve been avoiding the series was that I would get hooked, and have even books on my to read shelf, but I just can t help it Dresden is a sarcastic, bitter, tongue in cheek rogue that would make Han Solo proud The plot moves quickly, the action is imaginative, and the humor puts the perfect cherry on top What a great character

    25. This is a revised review as of 4 14 2013 Several of the images were off Google Image detailing the graphic novel for visual impact but this is an actual review of the novel Tale focuses on a man, well, not just a man, but, a wizard in current day Chicago who uses his magical powers to solve mysteries Most of them focus on the supernatural and there s a whole underbelly of mythical creatures which mortals are mostly unaware of vampires, werewolves, enemy wizards, faeries, ghosts, etc STRENGTHS 1 [...]

    26. Decided to try this series, as I keep hearing Dresden files everywhere for some reason, and apparently it s even a tv series I couldn t let an urban fantasy get so popular without knowing what its about There are many mixed reviews about this, some love it and some hate it But I am suprised at the negative reviews, as many complaints could be raised against the genre as a whole, but if you pick up an urban fantasy book don t you know what you re getting into I ve seen complaints about the follow [...]

    27. Originally rated three stars.March 2016 If you follow me at all closely here on , you ll probably know how much I love The Dresden Files, but that I initially didn t like it very much, to the point where I gave up after reading book three way back in 2009 I just didn t think the series was for me That I thought that at the time is alternately hilarious and horrifying I almost didn t pick this series back up, and so I almost missed out on what has turned out to be and of a favorite series as it [...]

    28. 3.5 starsHarry is a struggling wizard investigator Everything seems to go wrong for him He can t even have a normal date without frog demons showing up trying to eat them all He does side work for the police and none of them really believe anything he says either His wizard brethren want him dead as well Let s just say we should assume no one likes Harry in this book Except his big old cat, Mister, who eats steak sandwiches and hides his shoes And sometimes Bob, the spirit trapped in a skull he [...]
