Interesting novel --- but I could have done with about HALF of its length. I read the first half; skimmed the next quarter .... and REALLY skipped through the last quarter. It was far too wordy for my taste!
But thank you for posting it.
However, I wanted to mention: on the Kindle, at least, there is one quotation in italics .... and the italics then continue through the whole rest of the book. Perhaps other mobi-readers behave better; I don't know.
The quote is "pride saves men oft, and women too, from falling". It is rightfully (I presume) in quotes. Perhaps an "end-quotes" symbol is missing after it? The italics stayed put till the last "The End -- made by BookDesigner" which was back to a normal font. The kindle calls the quote's location "2733" (is that a word count, perhaps?) but at any rate, you can search for the text of the quote.
