    I don't care for prologues, and sometimes I actively dislike them. I always read them, of course, but it feels like we're easing into the story. I would rather just dive right in. Plunge me right into the story from the first paragraph. I remember in the early Wheel of Time books, the prologues didn't even have normal page numbers. They had roman numerals, and page 1 started after the prologue. That just feels like a delay in the story.

    I'll read a prologue if it's short and vital to the story. Too long and larded with detail and I feel like it's trying to support a weak story or that perhaps it should actually be chapter one.
    Have characters, must write.
