Reading progress update: I've read 340 out of 544 pages.

The Painted Man - Peter V. Brett

I think Brett rushed the start of section 3 just a bit to much, I feel if this section started with Arlen looking for the hidden tomb, then worked the anticipation from there than this last bit would of been 10 Xs more exciting and satisfying for the reader, but then maybe that was the point? Arlen obviously wasn't very satisfied/happy with the outcome.
