Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch

Red Seas Under Red Skies - Scott Lynch

Series: Gentleman Bastard #2

 

Abandoned at 37%.

 

I gave a solid effort to this one, but I’m finding that I just don’t care. I can’t even really point to a particular feature that annoys me (ok, other than that supposed “prologue” which isn’t really a prologue) or say that it’s poorly written. I just can’t seem to get into the book and the prospect of another three hundred pages of this, even with the promise of pirates, is making me throw in the towel.

 

On to the next book from Mount TBR!

 

[Aside: Wow, that’s 3 DNFs already this year and we’re only January!]
