Discussion Post #1 - Storm Front by Jim Butcher

Discussion Post #1 is open for business!

As a reminder, this is to discuss chapters 1-9. If you've read beyond that, no problem! Just make sure that you keep spoilers to a minimum for anyone who is reading at pace. Let's discuss!


1. Several important characters are introduced in these chapters. Based only on the content in these chapters, how well does Harry seem to know/understand each of the following: Murphy, Marcone, Susan, Morgan?

2. How do you think Harry sees himself?

3. In these chapters we see the beginnings of one of Jim's favorite story-telling techniques, creating an ever-growing pile of ever-worsening problems to be resolved in an ever-shrinking, seemingly impossible time frame. How effective is that technique in building tension within the reading selection?

4. What do you think the following quote reveals about Harry?
"... just because you're paranoid doesn't mean there isn't an invisible demon about to eat your face."

Now get to it, and write up your thoughts!
