Teela, carrying bad luck with him. Storms sink a fleet that he sails in and destroy a house that he sleeps in. A hamlet burns to the ground. Jonah's shipmates were annoyed when he admitted that he had a god against him. Hadding does not tell his overnight hosts that the elves are against him and at last resorts to sleeping out of doors. How will this be resolved? Despite reading this book at least twice before and even posting about it, I cannot remember. Much of the time it is like reading the book for the first time, which is good. The plot will be more firmly fixed in memory when I have posted about it yet again.
I like the contrast between Hadding and Larry Niven's genetically lucky sf character, Teela Brown, although I am sure that it was not intended.
