Question for all the Dresdenites: What was your LEAST favorite entry in the series?

I have to go with White Knight. I can't quite pin down why, at least not just yet. I may have to re-read it, but I couldn't bring myself to care much for the story and felt detached from it.
For me it's a tie between White Knight and Ghost Story.
Don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE the whole series, but if I'm gonna pick my lowest favorites, it's them.

Much like yourself, I found myself detached from the story of White Knight, and wasn't a huge fan of the supporting cast, (excluding the regulars, of course).

As far as Ghost Story, I dunno. Something about it just didn't work for me. I felt like I was watching an episode of LOST, where I was getting forty new questions for every half answer given with a quick "wind up" as the end of the book approached. Plus, I just didn't find the main villain

The Corpsetaker's Shade
to be all that dramatic of a main bad guy. *Shrugs*

Some are weaker and/or less appealing than others but IMHO not by enough to bother about. I always say that my favorite Dresden Files book is the one I'm reading right now (or have just finished). I'll be saying that again in a month or so when I begin my yearly re-read of the entire series.

Hi Helen, good to see you hanging out here every once-in-a-while!

After leaving that post I began thinking that I might just start a bit earlier than I'd been planning as lately I've noticed that I've been reading things a bit more slowly.

After having listened to the audiobooks for The Dresden Files, James Marsters is firmly imprinted in my mind as Harry's voice.... with Terrence Man as Bob from the short-lived t.v. series.

nice!! now I am even more eager to get my shot at them. My library surprised me not only by having multiple copies but a good portion of allthe novels to date all in audiobook format online.

Terrence Man was PERFECT as Bob.

Lost year I started the Iron Druid books but save for Oberon and a couple other supporting characters I got bored or perhaps just overwhelmed bythe vocabulary. Plus they kept missing the sweetspot Harry Dresden and pals fill. So from more on I will accept no substitutes.

I've decided to begin my third annual re-read of Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files series today. I had planned to begin this re-read a little closer to Skin Game's release date, but since I've noticed that my book consumption rate has slowed significantly as of late, as stated in the above quote, I've just now begun re-reading Storm Front again.

Nice!
I'm thinking I'm gonna start soon as well. I had restarted Storm Front a few months ago, but got sidetracked.
Maybe I'll read it out loud to Molly.

Cool Bombshells!

Quoted from jim-butcher.com

Cool My Interview with Jim Butcher

In My Interview with Jim Butcher Jim discusses, among other things, Skin Game with Rebecca Lovatt!

I posted this interview here, back in May.
