A Storm of Swords
A Storm of Swords | George R. R. Martin
THE BOOK BEHIND THE THIRD SEASON OF GAME OF THRONES, AN ORIGINAL SERIES NOW ON HBO. A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE: BOOK THREE Of the five contenders for power, one is dead, another in disfavor, and still the wars rage, as alliances are made and broken. Joffrey sits on the Iron Throne, the uneasy ruler of the Seven Kingdoms. His most bitter rival, Lord Stannis, stands defeated and disgraced, victim of the sorceress who holds him in her thrall. Young Robb still rules the North from the fortress of Riverrun. Meanwhile, making her way across a blood-drenched continent is the exiled queen, Daenerys, mistress of the only three dragons left in the world. And as opposing forces maneuver for the final showdown, an army of barbaric wildlings arrives from the outermost limits of civilization, accompanied by a horde of mythical Others—a supernatural army of the living dead whose animated corpses are unstoppable. As the future of the land hangs in the balance, no one will rest until the Seven Kingdoms have exploded in a veritable storm of swords. “Of those who work in the grand epic-fantasy tradition, [George R. R.] Martin is by far the best. In fact . . . this is as good a time as any to proclaim him the American Tolkien.”—Time “Long live George Martin . . . a literary dervish, enthralled by complicated characters and vivid language, and bursting with the wild vision of the very best tale tellers.”—The New York Times “One of the best series in the history of fantasy.”—Los Angeles Times

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.”

“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. 😂😭 3mo

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. 😂

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 3mo
BookwormAHN I know she is Catelyn's sister but I can't really see it. She is too weak to be a Tully. 3mo
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. 3mo
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) 3mo
BookwormAHN You're right about what she went through. When I said weak I should have said weakness for listening to Littlefinger. 3mo
4thhouseontheleft @BookwormAHN Yes! He truly has been playing the long con game for years, and is such a sneaky little jerk. 3mo

DylanT Please, just stop there and be content. I loved the first 3 books but beginning with Feast for Crows, it just got convoluted, wandering and went nowhere = bad. 3mo

I'm starting to wonder if George R. R. Martin is a sadist. The amount of death and tears (from me) are exhausting. I still loved the book though. The characters are to well written to not care about.
Also from having watched the show, this book seems like it covered the 3rd and 4th season, so I'm curious to see what will be in the next two books.
