    The writing style is some of the best I've read. I love the way characters' dialogue is interwoven with their contradicting thoughts. This adds additional layers of depth and humor to their personalities. As a female reader I found the continuous rape, pillage and plunder to be a bit overwhelming and by the time I arrived at A Dance With Dragons I was thoroughly desensitized to every variety of torture and degradation that was being served. In Book 5 the remaining characters are all trudging around with missing limbs, gaping holes where eyes and noses once were, corpses are dangling and rotting at every turn. I found myself wondering how the remaining maimed citizens, with their villages burned to the ground, could possibly still submit the taxes that were supposedly funding all the wars. Although the sharp caustic wit and sarcasm suit Tyrion, and even Cersei, when too many other characters like Jaime and Littlefinger and a few blokes from across the sea begin to all talk with the same sarcastic voice, the effect becomes diluted. The first 3 books are well paced, beginning slow but ending in a crescendo of exciting action. But I was surprised with the painfully slow pace of Book 5 - A Dance With Dragons. Up until the final few chapters, the dragons remain chained, earth bound, and mostly ignored which is a disappointment, given the book's title. Although there remains (hopefully) 2 books to come, I still expected at least a portion of the story threads to begin forming some semblance of a cohesive whole, especially in light of the enormous gap of time between book releases. It's a bit bold of the publishing company and George Martin to expect fans and readers to maintain interest and loyalty while year upon year passes while the author takes on numerous other projects that are given priority over this unfinished series. For the moment I'm still hanging on but as each additional year passes, my fingers are beginning to lose their grip on the ciff.

    Epic and Engrossing

    Martin weaves an epic yarn spanning both time and distance as the reader follows the stories of opposing families fighting for rule. Characters are true to real life, as is the story: some are heroic, and some dastardly, and all are prone to making mistakes. Indeed, from early on it becomes apparent that all are mortal as well. Highly recommended, can't wait for the next book in the series!
