Hounded (Iron Druid Chronicles, #1) - Kevin Hearne Hounded was indeed an easy, funny read but at the same time, I feel that the author rush the story too much to the point that it became impossible for me to be emotionally involved in it. The general concept of this book is interesting enough but I think the author went overboard with the number of ancient deities and mythical creatures that he included in his book. Without in depth explanation of these characters (Especially those from Celtic mythology), they end up being just names without much meaning and this seriously took a lot of the fun away.Overall, Hounded was not really a terrible book. The core ideas and unique characters are all there, but it severely in need of good, meaningful elaboration.
