Ugh. I painfully made it to page 100. The main character is a brat, I realize that they're going to have him grow and develop. I just have no patience for a boy who is rude to his parents when his father has had a stroke. Plus it keeps going back in time to the history of the castle, but it's boring and meandering. What's really irritating is that it keeps doing an information dump however none of the information moves the story along. Has anyone finished this and found it to monumentally change and improve?
