    This isn’t going to be a cutesy review. I am well into the third book. I fear that if I don’t blurt out my thoughts about this one soon, then all the books in the series are going to meld together in my memory. Here are my three main impressions:1. Bleak, dreary, and dismalDon’t expect any happiness in this book. Martin is merciless with his characters. And if you do see a bright light, don’t trust it. One character learned she won’t ha...

    It was right about at the beginning of George R. R. Martin’s A Clash of Kings, the second book in his A Song of Ice and Fire series, that I admitted to myself that I wanted to quit my job and everything else in my life so I could stay home and read all day. I resisted the urge. I’m still not quite sure if I made the right decision.You think you know someone, and then you read the second book about her. (Or him. Though, for the most part, the ...

    If long Fantasy stories have fundamental rules, they probably go like this: 1) create a rich world, 2) put interesting characters in it, and 3) mix up some sequence of interesting things happening around them, happening to them, and being done by them. Martin’s first novel in this series, A Game of Thrones, fulfilled all three swimmingly. He forged one of the deepest Fantasy realms since Tolkien, with a mythology, culture and history. He spun c...

    Re-ReadI freaking finished it! I have to admit I have watched, well own the boxsets, of all the shows up to the current one. I can't watch is because I don't have HBO! But I digress. There really isn't much more that I can say that hasn't already been said etc and so on. I will just add a few excerpts and some pictures and some thoughts. That stuff. I love Jon Snow It seems like he didn't have much in the book. A few of the characters I love didn...

    Everyone seems to agree that George R.R. Martin and A Song of Ice and Fire are titans in the genre of Epic Fantasy. True, true. Everyone also seems to agree that the best characters are Tyrion, Arya, and Jon Snow. They are indeed wondrous characters. They are heroes. They fail many times, but in a way they are infallible: they are so incredibly sympathetic, they are always trying to do the right thing, they have kindness & empathy & bravery & loy...

    Whew! Another one down. These have got to be some of the longest audiobooks that I've ever listened to. Yet, despite the length, I cannot pull myself away from this series. I am completely hooked on this sordid and gory saga.The second book in the series, 'A Clash of Kings' picks up the story and submerges readers in action and adventure. With all of the new kings coming forward to lay claim to different lands and all of the battles, I found myse...

    This is the Imp’s hour; this is the Imp’s book. Forget about Dany, and forget about Jon Snow because this is the book where we get to see the true quality of Tyrion Lannister. Tyrion is my favourite character in this series, so I’m somewhat biased in my review. For me, he is the most unique, and original, character that George R.R Martin has written. He is wise beyond his years and has developed an acute perception of things; he knows his o...
