I'm about 100 pages into this, and I just can't bring myself to go any further. This isn't something that happens often, and I was actually very much looking forward to this one. I just don't care what happens next.

The characters are coming across as flat to me, and I don't particularly like any of them. But mostly, it's the historical incorrectness that bothers me - sure, the setting and the clothes are right, but the way the characters behave is definitely not. It just keeps pulling me out of the story to roll my eyes and say "Yeah, right." I don't mind a woman in a historical novel with somewhat modern sensibilities, but the characters in this one act and think like it could be 2011. I'm just not that impressed, and there are far too many books to read and enjoy - I even gave it longer than the "50 page test," so I feel okay about putting this one down.
