Death Masks

death masks jim butcherDeath Masks by Jim Butcher, 2/5

Many fans promise that Butcher only starts to hit his stride as the series continues, but I felt that this fifth book was generally less appealing than its predecessors.  The plot was thin, the characters lacklustre and overall I felt it was missing that “so bad it’s good” quality that made the earlier books enjoyable.  Also, there were a couple pages where the “adult tone” mentioned in the commendatory cover quote was a little too adult for me.

[Why I read it: sometimes I need a break from the 19th century literature and books on quantum physics.]
