As I mentioned the other day, I picked up an ereader, with the intention of reading more. I’ve had it for a weekend and a bit, and in that time I’ve read two and a half books. I read the Dresden novel skin games, the first novel in a different urban fantasy series, the Iron Druid, and about half of the Odd Thomas book, which I’ll probably finish today.
So far, Odd Thomas is very much like the movie, and I’d enjoyed the movie. I’m looking forward to the other books in the series.
The Iron Druid book has a similar flavour to Dresden, and I’d recommend it to fans of that series. It has some genuinely funny bits and a pretty interesting magic system.
Skin Games, I’m surprised I hadn’t read earlier, when it first came out. Simply out, it really reminded me of why I enjoyed the Dresden novels, and was perhaps my favourite since Dead Beat.
I’ll probably toss up another quick article like this in a week or two.
