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?

On egalitarianism in Chalion: I'm glad that Cazaril was "cured" of his rather sexist perception that a woman marries out of the family, but a man brings a woman into his family - as pertaining to the curse, of course, but the implication is also that having Bergon and Iselle join families as equals, for better or for worse, is a welcome remove from tradition.
