Reading progress update: I've read 489 out of 967 pages.
A Feast for Crows - George R.R. Martin

I usually mostly read a chapter or two when I go to donate plasma, twice a week so it can take me awhile to get through books. This one has been going faster, however, and I'm very happy about that.

 

I'm not at all liking this one. If your familiar with Song of Ice and Fire (better known as Game of Thrones), you're aware that there are quite a few plot lines being developed and played out side by side in each book. In A Feast For Crows this becomes annoying as many of them have been deliberately left out of the book. Most of my favorites in fact. We briefly get a Sam chapter on the wall near the beginning, which is eventually followed by another Sam chapter (not on the wall). Arya gets similar treatment along with Sansa. Tyrion, Daenerys, and Davos appear to be completely absent so far, with the bulk of the chapters going to Cersei, Jaime and Brienne. The Ironborn plotline also significantly expands adding new characters, but little interest so far. An even more boring plotline focusing on events in Dorne is also introduced.

 

I think this one is going fast, because I just want to get through it and get back to the stuff I like in the next book.

A Game of Thrones - George R.R. Martin

There have already been many good reviews written about this book, some praising and some condemning.

 

I myself loved the book and the way it is narrated by the different characters. Is it weird that my favorite character is Tyrion?

 

The story is about a kingdom in turmoil for the throne (thus the title) and the many high families involved, including the exiled children of the previous king. Add to that the Black Guard that stands guard at the huge ice wall protecting the kingdom from the Others. The ending of this book was a surprise to me. I can't wait to see what Dany will do!

This book leaves a lot of unanswered questions which leads in to the rest of the series which I will most definitely read. I just hope the last book does indeed bring everything to a close.

 

One note of warning. This book describes human savagery and butchery at it's worst with beheadings and war, descriptions of rape and debasement of women and the "lowborn". If you are sensitive to that sort of thing then this book may not be for you.

Das Lied von Eis und Feuer 10: Ein Tanz mit Drachen von Martin. George R.R. (2012) Broschiert - Martin. George R.R.

So froh, dass ich diese Serie endlich gerade beendet haben konnte! Ich dachte schon sie wird nie enden... 10 Bücher darin!!! So viele Male wollte ich nämlich sagen, genug von Drachen, Daenerys, Cersei, Tyrion, Lennisters, von Eunuchen ganz zu schweigen. Aber Diese ganze Geschichte würde nicht vollständig, wenn man das Lesen halbwegs eingestellt hätte. Im ganzen lesenswert.
