Unoriginal... themes were redundant throughout the book. If they had not been they may have been a good shock factor. I hated how everyone seemed to be a uni-drone with the same exact opinions, feelings, and observations as everyone else. These too (the observations) were continuously repeated throughout.
And the last bit, at the end: "Elinor's son is the heir!"... and Elinor knew without a doubt that she carrying Rohan's child, and that it was a son. What tripe is this?! That part literally had me rolling my eyes.
