A Storm of Swords

I'm more than a quarter of the way in, fucking enormous book. Is anyone reading it also?

Discuss here, I won't talk about anything specific that happens yet until I have a good idea of who is at what point.

I finished Storm of Swords last month, awesome read. I'm struggling to start Feast of Crows, just can't seem to get into it since the first few chapters are all new characters you just don't give a shit about.

I just finished it. Agreed, was awesome. Even with all the horrible things that happened, the great stuff made it all worth it.

Spoiler!

Storm of Swords is the best book imo. Feast for Crows is alright, but really slow.

Thought I'd revive this.

I've been reading this for a little while now. I gotta say, it's had some good parts but it's mostly been pretty meh until...

Spoiler!


Holy shit is all I have to say. It just keeps getting better and better. I'm three-fourths of the way through, I think (Nook says I'm 750+ pages in out of 1060-something). Hopefully, it continues.

It does.

It does.

Edit: Well it might lack the "shock" value of the Red/Purple Weddings, but it's still good. And I'll mention when you re-read the book, the first part isn't nearly as "meh" anymore either.

I'm not saying it was bad. I just felt it was very evenkeel and a lot of it, it was just alright.

Once it hit what was in the spoiler tags, everything started picking up.

That sounded harsher than I meant it , I just meant once you have read the book and know what it's building towards the first part gets better.

No, I know what you meant. I just wanted to give more explanation to what I meant.

It's all good, Ichibro.

Now wait until the 6th book is out to find out whether reading the 4/5th is necessary
