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?

This post may be edited after some input.

Right, but it's Iselle's idea to do it that way.

I don't think it's Cazaril's sexism that makes him think that way--Challion is apparently a patrilocal society. Patrilocal and patriarchal--which is why Iselle wasn't in line for the throne until her younger brother died.
