Omega Vision
Face Flowed Into Her Eyes

Gender: Male
Location: Miami Metropolitan Area

When I read genre fiction I tend to tear through it, but with literary fiction I read at a third grader's pace. Or at least I feel as if I do. Whenever I read a Toni Morrison or Vladimir Nabokov book I take a month, but a Dresden Files book, which tends to be 50% longer, takes me a week. I think it's because I read DF books as a reader, not as a writer.

That makes sense generally a Dresden book takes me about a week to read but I don't try to break it down I just go along for the ride and see if I enjoy it.

What has been your favorite books and characters so far?

Good question. For a while it was Grave Peril, until I read Dead Beat. Then...I don't know, Changes was pretty amazing, as was Cold Days. Ghost Story was my least favorite.

Favorite characters include Marcone, Bob, Mouse, Mister, Harry, and Nicodemus.

Excellent I also enjoyed Dead Beat, I enjoyed Death Mask and Grave Peril. Changes was good. I actually liked Ghost Stories I felt it was a nice change up from Harry's normal pace. I really liked Cold Days along with Turn Coat. I don't know if there is one I particularly disliked but if I had to choose a least favorite it might be Blood Rights or Small Favors.

My favorites are Bob, Mouse, Susan, Michael, and Thomas. Harry and Marcone are like my second tier favorites.

got my little brother to start reading around New Years. He's now reading Ghost Story.

That makes five people I've gotten to read the series.

The majority of my friends that do read books don't care about the series much. Most of them have the mind set that if its not Game of Thrones they aren't interested. I personally couldn't get into those books much.

I've read the first in the series, I am stuck in limbo within the second. That was before my "Finish what you start" book policy was in place. I'll finish it one day. One day.

It gets SO MUCH better after the first two books, trust me. Not that the first two books are bad, mind you.

I absolutely love this series. I haven't read the latest one but I hope they explore Odin and the dragon from the 3rd book more.

Ferrovax is supposed to play a major role in the "Apocalyptic Trilogy" at the end of the series.

Odin...yeah, he had a big role in Cold Days.

Yeah. Its been almost a year since I read them. Perfect reason to re read them. Has anyone watched the show? I never have. I heard it was horrible.

I haven't seen it. I think it was canceled after a few episodes.

It got a whole 1st season. It was ok but the only thing that seems to have not been changed are the names. They really could have taken it a much better direction.

EDIT: and the Dragon in the show was kinda meh. Really didn't seem to have the power like they are portrayed in the books.

Like Omega Vision said it gets really good! I think once you pick up steam on the second you will be happy you did. Then the rest of the books are even better. Deadbeat(book 5) and Cold Days(book 14) are my two favorites. The rest are all really good though.
