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?

I had to think about that last comment. It's not really that the hero is boring, I think he is pretty well-developped, but the second part of the book (after the ritual) felt not as well-written as the first part. It was as if Bujold presented much potential, but it was not actually fulfilled. In fact, this is true, for the other characters I mentioned as well.)

I also thought that the climax suffered a lot from the evil character being so bland.
