Unbelievably Boring

I'm 3+ hours in and nothing has happened. I don't care about any of the characters and there's no story. I'm returning the book.

You cant listen to 'some" of the book !

if you don't follow this book throught to the end you will miss EVERYTHING that is truly great about it. I do NOT want to give everything away but all the detail, the charater introductions the little side storys and daily goings on -- its all setting you up. It pays OFF. yes, only a few hours in you are still hearing about Cories daily life, and her sister and the Alioria and this and that and you will start to see subtle changes month by month and year by year in her life at court and the tides that turn around her. The pay off is Big, its worth the wait.
