Red Seas Under Red Skies - Scott Lynch

This book has been hard to get into. I think maybe I've turned a corner now that I've gotten home and can read it in more comfort, but I was seriously considering abandoning it. I'm not entirely sure why, but I just couldn't seem to care about the characters or what they were doing. And that "prologue" pissed me off because it's not really a prologue. It's a random snippet from somewhere and I wasn't even sure I cared enough about finding where it was supposed to go to continue.


So I might just have been a little grumpy this morning.
