The same could be said for the hero.
It was worth reading for the background story. I really hated the "villain" and his reasoning.
I've always LOVED reading. I've read since I can remember. I think that I would read laundry detergent's labels if I didn't have book under my hand! LOL I love all gendres, some more than other, but a book is a book and therefore indispensable! :D My other love is travelling and scuba-diving, better if done together!
