My Thoughts:

I’m pretty sure I got this through a recommendation through Larry Correia’s website and one of his Book Bomb promotional posts.

However, at 2% (personally, I prefer skim milk myself), the main character starts talking about how his mother preferred other women instead of conjugal visits with his father. So I was done.

★☆☆☆☆

    1. My guess is there isn’t anything more than that reference but at over 600 pages I’m not willing to go on. I have my lines of things I won’t read and this crossed it, just wicked early.

    I’m still laughing two hours later…Priceless!

  2. I enjoyed this one, but it was very “typical” SFF fare, drawing from Dune, Name of the Wind, etc. So in that sense, maybe you’re not missing much. Didn’t know Correia also enjoyed this one, he has pretty good recommendations for the most part.

    1. Yeah, the end of this month is ending on a very downward trajectory. Thankfully, life is busy enough at the moment that it has put all my reading into perspective 🙂
