Bump in the Reading Road

So I've finished 14 of 63 chapters... yes, that's right, 63 chapters of Riders by Jilly Cooper and I have found one small character that I like.  One.  A 12 year old girl.  All the others, the adults that the book is about are so unsympathetic, I want to smack them all.  So, I'm setting it aside for now - not crying uncle - and starting on Jordan L. Hawk's Threshold, before I throw my eReader across the room.  *LOL*
