I don't think you guys realize how tempted I am to DNF this book. It's that bad. I'm telling you, it's that bad.
But I'm going to muscle through it, because seriously, I'm taking notes on all of the things this book is doing wrong, and it's not just on the level of the events and characterization, but the writing is just that painful. I shouldn't be taking this long to get through only a handful of pages.
