I'm up to Death Masks now and the one liners are just getting better and better. Butcher's got some serious talent

*giggles insanely* I abso-freaking-lutely LOVE Dresden. That poor guy, he just needs to get laid. Death Masks is pretty intense in the eeeeeeeevil department. I love Michael... "Don't yadda yadda the Lord, Harry, it's disrespectful."

Butcher's talent is rather impressive. I mean, the series by all rights should be awful and campy as hell but Butcher just puts such an awesome spin on it that it isn't. The last one, Changes is the most emotionally intense by far. I won't spoil it, but ohemgee, there are some gut-wrenchingly horrendous scenes and you just want cry, but then Butcher will inject some hilarious joke in the guise of an observation of absurdity on Harry's part, and you just lose it.

And think about Summer Knight, how he sums up the climatic battle in that one... something about saving the damsel that's been turned to stone by the evil Faerie Queen before she unravels a magic hankie and kills said damsel on a giant Flinstones table?! I can just picture Butcher telling his wife what he's working on and she sums it up like that, completely deflating the grandeur and seriousness of the plot.

Other than Harry, who's your favorite character so far?

The flaming-poo-flinging monkey demons are probably my favorite bad guys so far

Oh I know! I can't even think about that sequence without cracking up. I read that before bed one night while Daniel was showering. I laughed so hard for so long that he thought there was something wrong. Stupid little notch eared puppy. :rofl:

I was laughing so hard at White Knight the other night at work that someone asked me what I was reading was so funny.

I can totally commiserate! Even when the big picture is really really serious, there's always a humor break.

"Don't look at me like that. It seemed like a good idea at the time." <--- Fav quote. I love how it's written so that Harry constantly commentates to the reader along the way.

So, I play Kidnap on Facebook and there was a question about Chicen Itza that I knew the answer to because of Changes

I can't believe that Harry arranged his own murder with Kincaid in an attempt to get out of his deal with Mab. And then have Molly do some mind mojo on him so that he'd forget about it and so that Mab wouldn't know what he had set up. I teared up when Harry got to see Maggie and I can't wait to see what happens when Harry starts his duties as the Winter Knight
