4.0 out of 5 stars
Solid continuation of an excellent series, 20 Nov. 2012
Yes there is lots of it and yes there is a lot of chat about food and flags but that's GRRM, if you've got this far then don't stop now and be patient! The quality of his character building is excellent and one cannot hope to like all of them, that's just part of the subjective nature of life. I'm confident he'll get there I guess it just takes time.
My only grip however is the repeat of techniques, not so much to constant detail he insists on describing but the use of the chapters as supposed "cliff hangers" unfortunately too many folk have come back from the dead for any feeling of dread is lost!
