Why I Love the Dresden Files (aside from the funny and the pyromaniac wizard)

"God isn't about making good things happen to you, or bad things happen to you. He's all about you making choices - exercising the gift of free will. God wants you to have good things and a good life, but He won't gift wrap them for you. You have to choose the actions that lead you to that life." - Uriel, The Warrior, Side Jobs, Dresden Files


  1. See I have season 1 of this and Im sure you're talking about the books but still sometimes I just wanna pop it in and find out what its all about.

  2. Season 1 is the entire tv series. It's... okay. But only tangentially related to the books. The books are the gold. And yeah, unless I specifically say I'm talking about the tv show (which has never happened, to my mind) I'm talking about the books.

    They're a mix of fantasy and 'hard-boiled' detective fiction. I could go on and on about them but I don't want to spoil them, really. I recommend everyone to read them and you can find copies in any bookstore, used or new, and in a library.

  3. Ill have to check them out. Maybe Ill watch the TV series a bit before I take a bunch of old DVDs to a resale store LOL

  4. Doooo iiiiiiiiiitttttttt...

    The books are awesome. Wrapped in more awesome. The majority of the quotes on the side of my blog are from this series, and there are a million more. It is fabulous. And habit forming.

    I'm just saying, don't see the series and then judge the books by it. The books came first and are much, much better. The series would have been wonderful if they'd stuck to the books!
