4.0 out of 5 stars Short but sweet, 24 Oct 2010
"Everything in the world of matter is unreal; the only reality is in the world of Spirit. Emancipate yourselves from the tyranny of the former; strive to attain the latter."

A very short little book and as it's free, worth downloading.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, not that great., 4 May 2008
I'm a newcomer to the series as was hooked after he first few chapters of 'a game of thrones' Very enjoyable books up until 'A Feast For Crows' where, after the blood bath that was blood and gold we seem to have hit the breaks hard!

Due to the way this series has been written this short review wont really apply to everyone but if your favorite characters are: Jon Snow, Dany, Tyrion and everyone else not in Kings landing your going to go away from this book feeling a little let down.

I found it hard to get into, there wasn't much exciting ever really happening the only parts i enjoyed where the Arya parts but they where few and far between, with alot of the story focusing on a game of hide and seek only you know where the person is hiding and the seeker doesn't. Becomes a little annoying after a while. The rest focuses on court politics which I find drags on, and on, and on!

This book won't appeal to everyone but the joy of being inside Martin's world is well worth the price (Like your going to stop reading this far into the series though) It leaves you wanting more. but not more of this book, more of what we enjoy and found in the previous books.

If you are going to buy this book now i would recommend not reading it until just before 'A Dance with Dragons' comes out if you read it before your going to die waiting to hear some news from the wall.

hoped this helped although this is a spur of the momment/review so if it sucks, cut me some slack ;)
