4.0 out of 5 stars top bog for camping, 14 Aug 2011
does exactly what you want it to...ideal for those moments where your caught short in the middle of a cold night especially for those with kids. Easy to use, easy to keep clean, and together with the Doogie Bags, makes a perfect and essential addition to any campers armoury.

1.0 out of 5 stars more money making historical report than fantasy masterpeice, 14 Aug 2011
How thourouhly disappointing.....having been enthralled and engrossed by A Game of Thrones, I became slowly more worried as I read Book 2 A Clash of Kings. Martin beautifully entwined a series of storylines during A Game of Thrones without leaving the reader confused and added the spice of twist with subtle changes of direction and even the death of various characters that at first glance felt like they were in it for the long haul. Unfortunately he fails horribly to continue this theme with ever more confusing directional changes, twists and story lines. Character description becomes messy and trashy, as does his use of language with random and unnecessary use of smutty slang which adds nothing to the dialogue. More worringly, I have also gone on to read the next book in the series and scanned the synopses of those further down the line - the disastrous fall into messy, confusing storylines and character switches continues. The series has a feeling more of a money making ploy rather than hit fantasy - I get the impression that Martin is trying to stretch out what would have been a great three of four book collection and in the process has lost his direction and the strentgh of characters and plots.

If all that is not enough to put you off, the small print crammed onto each page with little margin certainly might!! Give it a miss and spend your time on something more useful.

A disappointed fantasy fan......

3.0 out of 5 stars disappointing, 8 Dec 2010
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This is almost a great game.....but has one major flaw in my books. You will complete the game way before you are any where near completing all of the in game challenges (quests, character levels, vocations etc). For some this 'post-game' grinding will appeal but I can't see why the designers couldn't make these in-game challenges more a necessary part of the main story-line - I expected to at least have to get my characters up to near their maximum levels before completion but didn't even need them near half way!! Consequently you will be left with a completed game story and the prospect of endless repetitive grinding to get near 100% completion - very frustrating!
