Review: Storm Front

Storm Front (The Dresden Files, #1)Storm Front by Jim Butcher
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a super fun book; I am looking forward to continuing the series!

What I Liked:
1. I really enjoyed the mystery in this book. It was a fairly solid story. The clues and how the pieces fit together didn't feel too contrived. It seemed all fairly believable.

2. I liked how magic worked in this world. I enjoyed the potion making scene, especially.

3. I appreciated the thesaurus work in this book. People didn't enter rooms, they stalked into rooms, etc. I could visualize what was happening in the book.

What I Didn't Like:
1. I believe this was Jim Butcher's first published novel, and it feels a bit like that. In particular, it seemed like there were just paragraphs of description that just stopped the action. It seemed every time someone entered a scene, we were subjected to a description of what they looked like, and it didn't really flow with the rest of the scene. I kept feeling pulled out when that happened.
