19.0% "I feel like I can predict where this story is going to go from here. But there's probably about 500 more pages of courting before we get there."

30.0% "It had been so long since I'd made any progress, I actually went back to the beginning to start over. The earlier promise of something interesting about to happen remains unfulfilled 70 pages later. Unless a series of dinner parties at which people drink wine and eat fancy food is considered "interesting."

I feel like I'm hovering over a dying patient pleading "Please, please, get better soon!""
