Descripción del producto

Meet Harry Dresden, Chicago's first (and only) Wizard P.I. Turns out the 'everyday' world is full of strange and magical things - and most of them don't play well with humans. That's where Harry comes in.

Harry is the best at what he does - and not just because he's the only one who does it. So when the Chicago P.D. has a case that transcends mortal capabilities, they look to him for answers. There's just one problem. Business, to put it mildly, stinks.

So when the police bring him in to consult on a grisly double murder committed with black magic, Harry's seeing dollar signs. But where there's black magic, there's a black mage behind it. And now that mage knows Harry's name. And that's when things start to get . . . interesting.

Magic - it can get a guy killed.

Harry Dresden vive en un Chicago aparentemente normal, aunque debajo de las convenciones se esconden poderes en los que pocos creen. Hay demonios, vampiros, hadas y verdaderos magos, como Harry. Unos asesinatos inexplicables llevan a Harry a involucrarse en una trama mucho más peligrosa de lo que parecía en un principio. Es un libro que se lee bien, con mucha acción y magia, bastante visual. No es mi estilo habitual de lecturas pero es mucho mejor y más original que otros libros de temas sobrenaturales. Para desconectar.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A tough introduction to The Dresden Files 16 de mayo de 2014
Por Merric Blackman - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Libro de bolsillo Compra verificada
With the fifteenth volume of Jim Butcher’s The Dresden Files series about to be released (just over a fortnight away as I write these words), I thought it was an appropriate time to reread the series. And to write a few words about it. I haven’t followed the series since its inception; I was finally persuaded to read the series a few years ago, and after reading part of Storm Front, I abandoned it and went to read something else. Two years ago, I finally sat down and read through the entire series and it’s a series I really enjoy.

Storm Front, on the other hand, is not a great introduction to the series. It isn’t actively bad, but neither did it grab me and say “This is a writer to watch!” What you have is a fairly standard mystery novel: two people have been murdered and Harry Dresden, Wizard for Hire, is brought in on the case.

The actual mystery is interesting and moderately well-handled. More interesting is the world-building on display. Harry is a pariah amongst Wizard-kind, due to something undisclosed that happened in his youth, and is watched over suspiciously by the Wizard Council. The world in general does not admit to the paranormal being real, and only two “normal” characters – a policewoman and a journalist – know that Harry is not a fraud. There are vampires, one of whom operates a brothel, and faeries.

However, these things are but lightly touched upon. The book feels moderately short – at 372 pages in the paperback edition, it isn’t really that short – but you only get glimpses of the world that Jim Butcher creates in the subsequent novels. More importantly, those glimpses are rarely engaging. For instance, the revelation of the true form of vampires feels thrown away; it’s incidental to the plot of the book. It’s just something creepy.

Perhaps most problematically, the characters didn’t engage. Harry Dresden reads as a person just getting by, lacking money and, more importantly, friends. Without those friends, there aren’t the interactions that the book really needs. Dresden will come out of his shell, but his shell makes this book a moderately tough read.

It doesn’t take that long for the series to really come alight, but Storm Front is much less than what comes later.

I knew going into this that I'd be entering a longterm relationship with Harry Dresden. I was willing, but skeptical. Even with the image of Paul Blackthorne firmly planted in my subconscious, I knew from experience that commitment requires more than a pretty face.

Little did I know how right I was.

You see . . . longterm relationships are WORK. And often, the things you love the most about another person are the same things that enable that person to drive you NUTS.

I love how realistically flawed Harry is.

I hate how realistically flawed Harry is.

He gets himself into a tight spot, so he rationalizes:

"It wasn't as though I was actually going to be doing any black magic, I told myself. I was just going to be figuring out how it was done. There was a difference. I was helping the police in an investigation, nothing more."

But then he immediately calls his own bluff:

"Yeah, right. And maybe one of these days I'd go to an art museum and become well rounded."

He's also incredibly self-aware. He knows his weaknesses as well as his strengths, and he presents both sides very matter-of-factly. It was refreshing. There was no false modesty or self-deprecation. No melancholy search for affirmation. Harry Dresden just lays it all out in plain site, do with it what you will.

But that same openness allows you to see (over and over again) how hapless he is when it comes to the fairer sex . . .

You know . . . for an self-proclaimed, socially awkward wizard with very little relationship experience, Harry Dresden finds himself surrounded by beautiful, flirtatious women with uncommon frequency . . . *rolls eyes*

But then he gleefully reveals his boyish, mischievous side by the sheer delight he takes at pulling one over on someone who has underestimated him. *rolls eyes again, but this time while grinning*

One second I wanted to smack him on the back of the head, and the next, I wanted to ruffle his hair and kiss him on the cheek.

So that's Harry.

There's also Bob the (peeping) Skull, Toot the pizza-loving faery, Mister the cat, Mac the surly pubkeep, Murphy the hard case female cop, and glimpses into possible future interactions with a literal faery godmother and the mysteriously intimidating White Council.

The plot was . . . eh . . . *shrugs* I'm giving it a pass this time, b/c I'm pretty sure a lot of groundwork was laid for future installments, and while this was a fairly entertaining read, it was also fairly predictable, and Bad Guy was just a stock power hungry Bad Guy.

On the world-building front, we were given a lot of hints, but nothing substantial, but that was okay, b/c so far, we've only been in the real world, so as much as I'd like to know more about the Nevernever (RIGHT NOW), there's plenty of time for that when we get there.

Overall, I definitely see this series being worth it (and not just b/c if I read this one, I will have read every, single one of the Big Deal UF series . . . which may or may not be a personal goal . . . *shrugs noncommittally*). Harry Dresden is a realistically likable character who I have a suspicion will turn out to be quite formidable, and Butcher lays a promising foundation with this first installment. Will it live up to my expectations? Only one way to find out . . .

The books get a helluva lot better as the series goes. It was just barely good enough to keep me in until book 5 really hooked me. But the only reasons I made it thru the first two was how much I like Harry himself, and I figured it would get better.

This was an interesting book but predictable. The wisecracking detective with a secret was indistinguishable from other wisecracking (anti)heroes, particularly Lindsay's Dexter, but also Stephanie Plum and others of this comic mystery genre. If I had discovered this series when it was new, and supernatural heroes hadn't been done to death, I probably would be more impressed. One problem is that the relationships--with Murphy, even with Morgan--aren't fully developed. all the characters seem stereotypical and paper thin. I hold the wise cracking detective to the standards set by Chandler and Stout. Harry, like many others, falls short, and his magic isn't enough to save him. It could be that reading more books in the series will deepen the character and his relationship with his various foils, or it could be like the Stephanie Plum series, where each book is forgettable but you keep popping them into your mouth like popcorn because they are light, easy to disgest and, frankly, they are there. At least the Stephanie Plum books brought Trenton to life. This book could have been set anywhere. But in the end, there's nothing much to account for the time spent. This wasn't a bad use of a few hours, but reading the entire series would be a significant commitment of time, and I don't plan to do it.

Storm Front initially put me off Harry Dresden for a number of years. It was only at the urging of a couple of friends who were already fans of the series that I sat down and pushed my way through Storm Front. It's not a bad story at all, but Jim Butcher has learned quite a bit since it was penned.

The main issue for me is that it took until after the start of chapter eight to really pick up. You really need the story building in the prior chapters, it's just a little bit plodding. Do yourself a favor if you've never read about Harry's adventures and read it. Just power through the first eight chapters and buckle up for a wild ride through the next 14 (and counting!) books!
