Product Description

Review

'Of those who work in the grand epic fantasy tradition, George R.R. Martin is by far the best'
Time Magazine

‘An absorbing, exciting read … Martin’s style is so vivid that you will be hooked within a few pages’
The Times

‘The sheer mind-boggling scope of this epic has sent other fantasy writers away shaking their heads …Its ambition: to construct the Twelve Caesars of fantasy fiction, with characters so venomous they could eat the Borgias’
Guardian

‘Colossal, staggering … Martin captures all the intoxicating complexity of the Wars of the Roses or Imperial Rome'
SFX

Not a bad read and it flows well, but there is a lot of life left in this saga yet and this book won't provide any closure, you'll end up waiting on the next one.
Is it just me or is he trying to shock for the sake of shock sometimes, and not for the betterment of the storyline.

Here we go again...

Yhis is the second half of the fifth book in the series of fantasy novels 'A Song of Ice and Fire.' Currently being dramatised on tv as 'Game of Thrones' although they're only in the middle of book two at the time of writing.

This is not a good jumping on point, and new readers should start with A Song of Ice and Fire (1) - A Game of Thrones (Reissue).

The fifth book was, just like the third book, split into two volumes for paperback publication. Thus this particular volume contains the second half of what was in the original hardcover edition. If you've already read that, then don't get this, because you're not getting anything new.

As to this book itself....

Has the same format as before. Maps of the setting at the front. Appendix at the back listing all the very long cast of characters. Chapters in the middle. Each with a different viewpoint character. Of which there are many to choose from.

And there's also an epilogue.

Book five takes place chronologically at the same time as book four. Thus for most of book five the viewpoint characters who appeared in book four don't feature. But you do get to a point in this particular volume the viewpoint characters from book four do start to creep back in.

Some storylines do make interesting progress. Although there's hardly anything in the way of action. There's a fair bit going on in the north. And some interesting developments. But things haven't quite come to a head yet.

And there's a lot going in the east where Daenerys, and several other characters are. And certain events do happen there.

Nothing of interest happens in this book. Read the entire series and all Martin has done in this one is utterly destroy his characters. They don't even slightly resemble who they were in the first 3 books. Danny is no longer a conqueror queen, she's a useless tool who does nothing but think the entire book (no more conquering) she even locked her dragons up so they're not in the story at all. Tyrion is randomly a sellsword in the east and only thinks about his father and 'where whores go'. Jon Snow had the potential for several great storylines but hes dead (seemingly) because of a totally unrealistic situation where his men turn on him (wtf). Stannis does literally nothing the entire book. nothing. I wouldn't mind if he died or something...but he just sits there doing nothing but freeze to death. All the best character stories felt like they were building up to something great since part1...but NONE of them come to fruition. NONE. How can not even a single plot finish in ~1800 pages (not counting the end of Quentin Martells mission, which was another massive waste of readers time, added and amounted to nothing in the story). I Waited 6 years for this piece of s***. I loved the other books, things happened (albeit slowly). Nothing happens here but the utter destruction of the characters attitudes and ethos, which was what made me love the series. Its really tragic to see how far GRRM has gone off track and seemingly lost interest in his own series. Every person whos read it I know agrees how tragic the series has become. It actually has rather upset me. Its even more upsetting to know the next book when something might actually happen wont be out for another 3+ years if we're lucky (been 4 years already). Absolute joke.

PS
However if you like endless lists of pointless crap that adds little to the story but takes up paragraphs and paragraphs of characters chapters then you'll love this book.

i was so looking forward to this book,what a disappointment! where was the remaining characters in this book? what is happening to them? there was so many new character introduced, that has no relevance to the book,i found myself skipping parts of the book,just so i could finish it quickly,only to now find out that this story is nowhere near finished....yawn! what started as a riveting set of books feels as if the author is now stringing out another book just for the cash!

Format: Paperback
Am I alone in finding it really irritating just how many people are giving Martin's excellent series low scores either because they expect the complex multi-threaded story-lines wrapped up nice and neat at the end of each book; or because they got confused that the publisher and distributor decided to release what was over 1,000 pages in hardback as two books in paperback?

As far as the actual content is concerned, I have found A Song of Ice and Fire a riveting read - even part 4 which was perhaps the driest read - with no dragons or Others to break the political machinations and multitude of betrayals. I suppose that since Martin's main strength is without a shadow of doubt in his masterful characterisation - the one book where political narrative took centre-stage was always bound to have seemed slower than the rest.

But having thoroughly enjoyed his triumphant return to form in "A Dance with Dragons" (parts 1 and 2 and yes, I was almost caught out too :-)) I now look forward to seeing how Martin manages to draw these myriad of loose threads back to the leaderless Westeros, where I'm guessing we will be reading about the Direwolf and the Dragon (and the half-nose Lion?) fighting side-by-side for the future of humanity. If the concluding two books are going to be as good as what we've had so far, well I don't know about you, but I'm prepared to wait another few years.
