The Curse of Chalion Discussion #1: First Impressions  
Hello and welcome to booklog_sff's first discussion! I hope everyone had a wonderful time reading (or in some cases rereading) Lois McMaster Bujold's The Curse of Chalion.

Let's begin with some basics.

What were your first impressions of the book?

Were there things that you liked immediately? Disliked?

Did the main character, Lupe dy Cazaril, interest you from the start?

Well, of course the religion doesn't demand blind faith, because she's created a set of circumstances in which there is personal and collective revelation. It's cheating! IRL, most people don't get to have those kinds of experiences. You don't have to make a law in the United States punishing attempts to pray someone to death. (Which in this universe are only punishable as crimes if they do not work, because if they do work it proves that they were the will of the god.)
