Prologues can be a great start to a novel. They set up some of the back story without bogging down the narrative, they give you a bit of history to the characters...and sometimes they can be a little boring.
We've heard before that many people skip the prologue together, while others will refer back to it to get some of the finer details of a characters past... which side are you on? Are you a fan of prologues or do you tend to skip them? Or are you somewhere in between and skim to find the pertinent details before moving on to the meat of the story?
