The trouble with YA is that by unspoken agreement there must always be a romantic plot taking up a good deal of space. I think that even when I was a teenager I'd have found this trying, and now in my twilight years it renders a book almost unreadable.

Which is to say, I'm having a hard time getting through Kingdom of Souls. I'd almost rather read Tristram Shandy.
