Storm Front by Jim Butcher continues to be an interesting and basically good book. It is, however, displaying some of the problems I have with first person narration. It is written in a casual style which might work fine for Garrison Keillior but makes it a little difficult to get into a supernatural thriller. The problem comes from what us third person practitioners call authorial interference. This takes place when the author speaks directly to the reader in one way or another. First person almost demands this constantly. The major problem with this is that if the protagonist is telling me about the battle he had with a demon, then he must have survived the battle and therefore there is no suspense about the outcome. In my opinion, this is the biggest drawback to first person narration.
Anyhow, I'm picking up my copy of The Blood Knight from B&N today so I'll likely put Butcher's work down for a while.
