I’ve owned a copy of this book for like a thousand years. A good friend recommended the series to me way back when there were a quarter as many books as there are now. And just think, had I taken his advice to heart I would have just gobbled down the latest book, not the first. Ah well such is life sometimes. This is most defiantly the year of reading all the old books I never touched for one reason or another.
So way back when, I had a hard time getting into the first book let alone the whole series. I’m not even really sure why in all honesty, but I’m glad that I gave it another go because wow! This book was go-go-go from the very beginning. It’s like it never stopped to breathe. Sometimes I think I stop to breathe too much in my books, and this was the extreme opposite. It was refreshing, I laughed, I was shocked at one point, I was kept wondering page after page.
I read that this was Jim Butcher’s first novel and all I have to say is how impressed I am. Everything comes back around.
I know this is an extra short review. Sometimes that’s just life. I did start book two today, so maybe there will be a bit more depth to that review. Until next time.
