Review: A Dance With Dragons

A Dance With Dragons
A Dance With Dragons by George R.R. Martin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I’m just glad I was late to this series so I didn’t have to wait five or six years between books four and five. Although now, I am in the same boat with millions of other fans, while we wait for the author to write and publish book six. It’s killing me.

Book four was written involving about half the characters in the book. This book runs concurrent with the events of A Feast For Crows, but from the point of view of the other half of the characters. Like book three, there was a pivotal event toward the end of this book that made me want to throw my Kindle across the room. I am left hanging and need to know what happens next.

Review: A Feast for Crows

Reading this one was like eating after looking forward to a meal for hours: I went way too fast to get to the end, and then realized it would be a VERY long time before my next meal. I can’t imagine how it was for fans of the series who finished it before Martin had released the fifth book in the series, since I only had to wait a week or two to get the fifth book, being a latecomer to the books.

There’s no way I can adequately review this book, since you either love them or hate them. The characters really get under your skin and you find yourself thinking like them, dreaming about them, and thinking of them for days or weeks afterward. Love this series.
