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?

Yeah, there's a matter of factness about religion in Chalion's world which is a bit odd. It looks more like your average D&D world in that faith is not the issue. All the more usual trappings of religion, the issue of interpretation, of chosing to believe, of doubts which one can perfectly retain even with metaphysical elements are here absent. I'm not sure what I felt about what was left.

Yeah, the bad guys' country which consider the Bastard is a demon instead of a god.

But you know, it's the bad guys' country.
