Very interesting so far. Always important to listen to all voices & stories.
Let down by this mediocre book. At first I thought that maybe I would have liked it if i had read it ten years ago, when I was a kid, but after further thought I don't think I would have. Everything fell flat for me - the plot, setting, characters were shallow at best. I almost didn't finish; definite pass on the rest of the series 😶
Meh. Not very cohesive but well researched
My heart feels achy. I loved this so so so much.
I didn't love Ari until the last few chapters, but it worked out well. Instant fave.
Finally finished this monster! Starting first year of university was a kick in the butt and i had zero time to read for fun. But, I made it!
A Dance with Dragons was beautiful. True to his style, Martin kept it interesting with points of views from characters we hadn't seen before. It was slow going in the middle, but the last 200 pages or so picked up, like usual. Can't wait for Winds of Winter!
I appreciate what Martin did with this volume: writing the whole story for the secondary characters instead of half of the story for all of the characters. That being said, if you're only invested in the big players, this novel will disappoint. While I thoroughly enjoyed the politics in this book, I did miss the main characters. Makes me excited for the next one!
