By Jim Butcher
After the previous book ending the way it did, I was eager to read Ghost Story. There were some things that were predictable, they had to be in order for there to be a story; but I think that Butcher writes well enough that the predictable parts were not a source of negativity. I loved the story. I think one of the reasons I really enjoy these tales is because of Harry. He is so human. He makes mistakes, big mistakes. In an earlier book he does something that has potentially horrible consequences. I remember thinking, “I wouldn’t do that”. However, the choices that he made to get where he is in Ghost Story were ones, that I thought, “I so would have done the exact same thing!” I like that Butcher explores grey areas of right and wrong. I also like that there was a lot of perspective gained by Harry. He spent a lot of time looking at people he hadn’t really valued before this time. He also got to see those he valued in a different light and that makes him such a real character for me. If you have not read these, I highly recommend the Dresden Files. If you have read it, I hope you liked it as much as I did. Please feel free to comment and add your thoughts. Thanks for reading!
