I can’t finish this. I understand that this was a violent time period, but this book/series just turns my stomach. I’ve tried to read it twice now, and I just can’t get any farther with it. With the news stories I keep reading about the TV series that’s based on the books, I don’t think the story line gets any better either. What I disliked most about the entire series is that there is no main character for you to follow. You start to like someone, and the author kills them off. So many of the characters have twisted personalities, too. Aren’t there any “good” people in this book? This is not my idea of a good read.
