A Little Fevre Dream Insight Please
Hello All! Its been a while since I last posted here, and I did search for a Fevre Dream thread, But didn't really find what i am looking for.I also don't know how often people check the GRRM section, so I will post it here. I understand if it gets moved.
I will try to keep this short. I am a huge Martin fan, and by Martin I mean only GoT. I was just browsing the other day and came across Fevre Dream. I have thought about buying it multiple times, so this time I did. Please note, I have never read a vampire novel before. I figured if I was going to give one a try, might as well be George.
Basically, I find the book immensely uninteresting so far. Sorry if I offend.. but I just couldn't care less about steam boats. I'm about seven chapters in and I am completely bored. Is the whole book so filled with the steam boat/river/etc. descriptions? Maybe i'm being nit-picky, but I think I'm just looking for more action, fights, adventure, or anything that is not steam boat related. Even the rare vampire parts so far were rather uninteresting to me.
Please give me your thoughts, and thank you for taking the time to read this!
