Non-Coherent Narrative: "A Storm of Swords" by George R. R. Martin
A Storm of Swords (A Song of Ice and Fire, #3) - George R.R. Martin


Characters wandering about the landscape, sometimes in circles. Plotlines unresolved while new characters are created and new plotlines set off. In one of them (can't remember which one now) it ends with a strange postscript explaining that the reason that so many previously important characters did not figure is because he could not find space for them in this vast tome, er, sorry about that. I have never seen anything like that in a book series. So why keep creating unnecessary new characters? It looks to me like the series had at one point a cataclysmic ending in view - Ice and Fire, the White Walkers coming down from the North and the dragons coming from the East, no doubt to meet in some Westeros Ragnarok. The trouble is that that doesn't fit well with the idea of a Wars of the Roses type feuding families and shifting alliances and that he got more interested in that.

Once again, so good. I'm not going to lie, though. The middle dragged and dragged, and I zoned in and out a lot. That ending doe... !!!!! So great. Much intense. Very GoT.

Progress: I haven't been on here much this month. A combination of the holidays, coming to terms with the results of the election, and my dads new puppy. Despite the sense of doom hovering around our house, my mom works in the mental health field and she's been spending a lot of time talking with concerned employees that are here with work visas that are afraid if they leave the country to visit family they won't be able to come back, and the craziness with the holidays, I managed to finish four books. I didn't read a single book that I wouldn't recommend to someone and I feel really great about what I accomplished this month, even if I'm still behind with reviews.

I posted last month that I wanted to finish ten more books by the end of 2016. It's unlikely to haopen at this point, but I can hope. I have eight more to go on my list, seven if you exclude A Feast for Crows which I'm 100 pages away from completing. The remaining list includes NeuroTribesA Dance With DragonsAnansi Boys, Equal Rites, Moving Pictures, Small Gods, and Mort
