Skimmed, so not rating. This was pretty much a replay of Fire Song but though Roland is objectively somewhat better than Graelem (not actually a rapist, and a somewhat more considerate adulterer, talk about damning with faint praise!) -- he belittles his wife Daria constantly, to the point that I just wanted to kick him in the nuts. And his refusal to believe her on an issue which was not all that unbelievable was aggravating. The angst was more enjoyable in the other book.
