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.

In a series of such epic length and scope you have to accept a few weaker moments now and then. For my money I could have done without all the Kingsmoot stuff in Book 4.

I'm a late starter - I only started reading these books after I caught the TV adaptation on Sky. As a result I've only just caught up with this, the most recent of the ASOI&F books. And it's brilliant. It's one of the best in the series.

Unfortunately it's also infuriating, because now we've got at least a year, maybe more, to find out what happens to all these characters. And because the books are so well-crafted we care about these people. While at the same time knowing that in ASOI&F anyone can die at any time. George never shoes away from killing off a good character. Or at least cutting their hand off.

Having read this one, my anticipation for the concluding books of this series could barely be higher. Winter is coming? It can't come soon enough.

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 came to the series late (when first brought out in the 90's I was a little too young for them) but still before the TV series. I didn't have high hopes for the first one - 'A Game of Thrones' - and bought it using my Waterstones points. However, I completely went back on my assessment of it within a few chapters - it had caught my attention and I couldn't put it down! Five books in, and I'm still loving every second of it! :D Martin is ruthless with his characters, sacrificing where needed, and not wimping out like most authors will do when it comes to killing their main characters.

Some parts do stagnate a little, but that's only to be expected when you're trying to write new characters in to replace the old ('A Feast for Crows' I found a little arduous, but I persevered, and this one more than makes up for whatever I found lacking in book four) :)

If, like some, you came to the series from the HBO series, you still won't be disappointed. The storyline is kept pretty much the same, and apart from the Starks' ages changing, there is not much else that is different. All in all, a fantastic plot line that keeps you engaged from the beginning of book one right through to the end of book five... and let's hope it doesn't take Martin 6 more years to write the next one!!

Enjoy :) x
