5.0 out of 5 stars Strong Third Book, 12 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Storm of Swords: Part 1 Steel and Snow (Reissue) (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 3) (Paperback)
Despite having to write a dissertation over the past couple of months I've found myself getting more and more addicted to the Song of Ice and Fire series, both in book and television format. I decided to read the books first, as is always the best way, and this book was a very good read. Although it is slightly irritating that the book has been split into two parts in the UK, this first half was very good, showing no signs of the decline that some have hinted at. Although the book ends at a seemingly random point, unlike some others I found it to be a decent cliff hanger, finishing with one of my favourite characters in a compromising situation.

I have not bought the next one (yet!) as I am forcing myself to finish my work before enjoying more nights (and days) with this great series. Some of the characters in this I found a bit irritating (Samwell Tarly) but on the whole it lived upto the previous high standards. Tyrion was still funny and conniving, I found myself continuing to root for Arya, Jaime and Brienne's story gave some interesting backround. However, Jon Snow's story probably has the most significant development in this (half) of Storm of Swords.

Overall it was a really good read, and I can't wait to progress with the next part!
