What I'm reading, what I'm thinking of reading & what I've read. And stuff.
I wanted to like this a bunch more than I did (which, having read a bunch of reviews, I find is a common reaction). At times I felt I was drowning in boring, irrelevant detail! There were just too many long, dull, descriptive passages, which I suppose were trying to set tone or mood or something, but were basically just enraging.
Still, the story was interesting enough that I'll probably read the next one, even tho such a big deal has been made of the fact that the relationship between hero and heroine has yet to be consummated that I'm rather terrified of what will happen when it finally is (please God, no long, dull, descriptive passages!)
