4.0 out of 5 stars A Song of Ice and Fire 22 April 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's cold. And it's getting colder... 8 May 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

Disappointed with this book it meandered going nowhere and not addressing old cliff hangers and some characters disappeared all together. Then just when you are bored a few plot twists are thrown in that will of course make me buy the next book.

The Game of Thrones series has been both fascinating and frustrating in equal measure. Martin's epic fantasy about the lives of the rich and not so rich of Westeros and its surrounding lands has become a tale in which you have certain characters you root for and others you wish very much would either die horribly or do something different with themselves.

A Dance with Dragons Part 2 follows the continued fortunes of Houses Lannister with its ruling members and exiled other, Bolton, Stark, Tyrell, Martell, Targaryen and all of their followers. The big stories seem to be the grief that the Lannister family are having at Kings Landing, with King Tommen continuing his young and increasingly precarious reign, his scheming mother, his uncle (who is his real father) who has largely abandoned them and his household who seem to be at war with themselves. It also follows the fortunes of exiled Lannister, Tyrion the imp who is trying to find his way to helping would be Queen Daernys Targaryen but keeps getting captured and sold as a slave or winds up going from one bad situation to another. His current fortunes include jousting in an arena on the back of a pig for Daernys' amusement and then getting away with his life to end up with soldiers of fortune in a company at Mereen's walls.

Meanwhile, in another city, the Stark formerly known as Arya is learning the assassin's trade at Braavos, something she has wanted to do. Her sister, Sansa who fled being imprisoned for a crime she had nothing to do with and being married to Tyrion is now in the hands of master schemer Petyr Baelish. He is continuing his domination of the Vale of Arryn and trying to connive his way into getting Sansa married to someone who is willing to go to war for her and retake her birthright, Winterfell.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointment 4 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found the book, as usual, a very easy and stimulating read. However, believing that this book was the culmination of the story, I was extremely disappointed and slightly angry that the author has seen fit to squeeze one, or (perhaps more), book(s) from what I believe is starting to become a very tiresome saga!

3.0 out of 5 stars Finally 21 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Finally, finished this last book of the 5 volumes, which I started to read last summer because I didn't understood the series anymore.
This last book is like the other books from the series, however a little bit better than the previous. I'm glad it will take a few years before "The winds of Winter" will be published, since I got a little bit annoyed how the story enrolls and the time it takes.

1.0 out of 5 stars Really? Another major death 5 Jun 2013
I have to agree with a few of the previous reviews, I spent most of this book not caring about any of the characters, 95% of them I still have difficulty working out who they are in relation to everyone else. I don't know if Martin thought, 'i'm making a lot of money now, lets drag this out' resurrecting characters dead long before the story begins, killing favourites for the apparent sake of shock value and generally over complicating things. The TV series has cut out all of the pointless tangents and is a much more entertaining medium to enjoy the series.

I thoroughly enjoyed 'A song of ice and fire' to begin with but feel he should have wrapped the story up 2 books ago.
