First way too much attention on Cuthbert. I feel Matthew was overly impressed with himself for working him into his story.
Second Beobrand has become wholly unlikable. He’s just a bore now.
And the cliffhanging ending of chapters then jumping to a different scene. Stop it! And the cliffhangers aren’t really cliffhangers at all. Was anyone really surprised at who had arrived at Sulis’ hiding place first?
The whole book was just kind of boring. If I want to hear an old man walk around grumbling I’ll call my dad.
