A Storm of Swords Complete Edition (Two in One) (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 3)
A Storm of Swords Complete Edition (Two in One) (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 3) | George R. R. Martin
HBOs hit series A GAME OF THRONES is based on George R. R. Martins internationally bestselling series A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE, the greatest fantasy epic of the modern age. A STORM OF SWORDS is the third volume in the series. The Seven Kingdoms are divided by revolt and blood feud, and winter approaches like an angry beast. Beyond the Northern borders, wildlings leave their villages to gather in the ice and stone wasteland of the Frostfangs. From there, the renegade Brother Mance Rayder will lead them South towards the Wall. The men of the Nights Watch are ready for the coming of a great cold and the walking corpses that travel with it. But now they face a horde of wildlings twenty-thousand strong hungry savage people steeped in the dark magic of the haunted wilderness poised to invade the Kingdom of the North where Robb Stark wears his new-forged crown. But Robbs defences are ranged against attack from the South, the land of House Starks enemies the Lannisters. His sisters are trapped there, dead or likely yet to die, at the whim of the Lannister boy-king Joffrey or his depraved mother Cersei, regent of the Iron Throne. Cerseis ambition is unfettered while the dwarf Tyrion Lannister fights for his life, a victim of treachery. And on the other side of the ocean, the last of the Targaryens rears the dragons she hatched from her husbands funeral pyre. Daenerys Stormborn will return to the land of her birth to avenge the murder of her father, the last Dragon King on the Iron Throne.

I enjoyed reading this book. It seemed like it took a long time to read this. I‘m going to take a break and read shorter books before starting A Feast For Crows.

I‘m almost finished reading #astormofswords for the #catchupgot readalong. This book is heavy. I‘ve been carrying it back and forth to the day program every week in my purse and it makes my purse heavy but I‘m enjoying this book. I made a lot of progress yesterday. Maybe I can make some progress today but I don‘t know if I will get finished.

Fierce Females⁣. I‘m currently reading the series #asongoficeandfire for the #catchupgot readalong that is happening on Twitter with the #catchupbookclub. I‘m in the middle of reading the third book #astormofswords and I‘m almost finished with it. I‘m already finished watching the tv show #gameofthrones so I‘m caught up on that. ⁣There‘s a lot of strong females in this book series and the tv show.

This is my reading progress for this book. I made a lot of progress yesterday. I started this book 2 months ago. I probably started in May or June. July is almost over and I‘m still going to be reading it for awhile. On Twitter, I‘m participating in the #catchupgot readalong with the #catchupbookclub. If I don‘t catch up with them then I‘m okay with that because this is a big book. I‘m enjoying it though.

Finally done. My only complaint is this book could be about 200 hundred pages shorter. But I remain loyal with Tyrion.
( Also Jamie surprised me!! )

My drive to work is much more fun, dramatic, and exciting while listening to GRRM‘s books. The third book certainly has its ups and downs, and soooo much happens! Sometimes it was tough to keep it all straight but I still love it 👌

#QuotsyMay19 Day 16: To #rescue a maiden fair. I love the devt of Brienne and Jamie‘s relationship in the HBO adaptation, until Episode 5, that is. I have read of the “traumatic creative differences” between Martin and the HBO writers DB & David. I am hoping that the elusive Books 6/7 will provide a different kind of narrative arc that more faithfully embody the characters‘ evolution rather than just an eye towards cinematic/dramatic moments.

“He will not come,” Kraznys said.
“There is a reason. A dragon is no slave.” And Dany swept the lash down as hard as she could across the slaver‘s face. Kraznys screamed and staggered back, the blood running red down his cheeks into his perfumed beard. The harpy‘s fingers had torn his features half to pieces with one slash, but she did not pause to contemplate the ruin. “Drogon,” she sang out loudly, sweetly, all her fear forgotten. “Dracarys.”

“Prince Bran has heard that tale a hundred times, I‘m sure.”
“No,” said Bran. “I haven‘t. And if I have it doesn‘t matter. Sometimes Old Nan would tell the same story she‘d told before, but we never minded, if it was a good story. Old stories are like old friends, she used to say. You have to visit them from time to time.”

I realize that there‘s nothing I can say about this book that hasn‘t already been said. But I will say that I think this one is my favorite so far! I loved watching certain characters evolve! I really couldn‘t put it down, and having watched the show first, I‘m really enjoying seeing the differences in the books. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

DGRachel This was probably my favorite so far, too. I‘ve read the first four, but since GRRM doesn‘t seem to be in any hurry to write the rest, I‘m not in a huge hurry to read #5. 😂😭 6mo

This book! They take forever to read, but ASOS was worth it! Definitely my favorite so far. Some characters started to grow on me more (Jaime) while other faves have left me scratching my head (Daenerys) at their seemingly aimless wandering. And Bran, I wish there would have been more Bran chapters!

My Jon Snow pop looks a bit out of place amongst my spring decorations. 😂

4thhouseontheleft Additionally, I‘m not often shocked speechless by an event, but the epilogue really took me by surprise! What‘s even better, is apparently it is not something that was adapted to the TV series...all the more reason you should read the books if you are a GoT fan! 6mo

I need to talk Lysa Arryn. I like this book, but her portrayal is problematic, to say the least. I mean here we have a woman who has been manipulated through much of her life. Her mental instability is intertwined in that victim hood. And she represents just about every negative female stereotype George Martin could come up with: ugliness tied to craziness, overprotective of her child, her obsession with being loved and/or pregnant, hysteria. Ugh.

laurenslibrary I think he really wanted readers to hate her so he went "all in" so to speak 6mo
BookwormAHN I know she is Catelyn's sister but I can't really see it. She is too weak to be a Tully. 6mo
4thhouseontheleft @laurenslibrary He definitely went all in! @bookwormAHN see, I don‘t see her as weak, but I‘ll give my reason why under a spoiler warning. 6mo
See All 6 Comments
4thhouseontheleft @BookwormAHN I don‘t like Lysa at all, but she suffered a forced abortion at the hands of her father, marriage to a man twice her age (at least), multiple miscarriages, and more. I have a hard time labeling someone who is mentally ill as weak, we have no clue what demons she was fighting on the inside. I would have loved a Lysa POV chapter or two to delve more into her psyche and motivations before she was kicked out the 🚪. (edited) 6mo
BookwormAHN You're right about what she went through. When I said weak I should have said weakness for listening to Littlefinger. 6mo
4thhouseontheleft @BookwormAHN Yes! He truly has been playing the long con game for years, and is such a sneaky little jerk. 6mo
