Am wondering whether to bother continuing with Kushiel's Dart. It has a strange lack of immediacy, which means everything you're reading feels like backstory (and a lot of it at the start probably was backstory) and you're forever waiting patiently for the story to begin. That and I'm not enjoying the story very much anyway. As it seems to be written by someone looking back on their life, it's presumably hopeless to hope they might realise how ruthlessly and cynically they and the other Night Court people have been exploited. It's distasteful to me to read this book, tbh.

Eh.

I have to stop listening to other people's recommendations for what to read....

Kushiel's Dart by Jacqueline Carey.

It must be possible--surely--for a woman's story not to involve brothels.
