Prebrinula sam i ovu muku :)
Šalu na stranu, drugi deo Plesa sa zmajevima hronološki se nastavlja na Gozbu za vrane, uostalom i podnaslov je:Posle gozbe.
Moram da priznam da mi je bolji od prvog dela, ali ipak i dalje na znatno slabijem nivou od očekivanog. Malo su se stvari pomerile sa mrtve tačke, ali i dalje škripi, i dalje se ide u širinu.
Ono što mi se posebno sviđa u kompletnom Plesu jeste razvoj lika Džona Snežnog, suočavanje sa teškim odlukama i sazrevanje. Za razliku od Deneris, na koju n

Look, I will always give these books 5 stars because I love the world so much and I've given so much time to read them and invested in the characters. But after reading this book, I am pretty angry, I still trust George to write this world but I'm starting to get sick of how he is dealing with some of the most important story lines, and most peoples favourite characters. I would never spoil anything, but certain things that he makes happen in this book made me question whether he even cares abou ...more

Finally I have come to the (current) end of the A Song of Ice and Fire series - it's been a long journey but now I can happily remain unspoiled and wait for The Winds of Winter (whenever that might come about).

The second volume of A Dance with Dragons was just as good as the first, with the added inclusion of some totally badass scenes - Daenerys anyone? And so many questions have been left waiting answers in the upcoming book, all of which I am pretty excited about. This book had it all: blood

The chapters in all the GOT books are organized by character so that an alternative way to read the books is to do just and follow one character through each of the volumes, rather than read each volume from cover to cover as one would normally. Since each character follows part of the overall timeline they sometimes overlap each other's narrative, but most often not, and it is an interesting way to follow the various twists and turns of the plot through all the volumes not just this one.

The First Part of A Dance With Dragons fairly ripped along, but everything felt as though it came to a juddering halt with this book. Part of the problem, for me, is that while the sheer number of characters give it a sense of scale you never really get to spend too much time with any of them. The result of that is bigger gaps between each little event in their story, so there a lot of little increments but not nearly enough to drive through the plodding nature of things. Characters that you've ...more

Melhor do que o volume anterior, ainda assim este deixou-me um pouco insatisfeita.
Sobre alguns personagens não há qualquer informação, como é o caso de Sansa e do Mindinho.
Sobre outros fica a faltar "mais que muito" - afinal o que se passou com Brienne?
E as minhas expectativas sobre o ressurgimento de Benjen Stark foram defraudadas...

De qualquer modo, a história nunca perdeu o interesse para mim e, ao contrário de alguns comentários que já li relativamente a este livro e

This review concludes my thoughts on the series as a whole *with no plot spoilers for any of the 5 books*

It's been exactly 4 days since I've finished the last book of the epic fantasy series "A Song of Ice and Fire" known to everyone by the adapted TV series which carries the 1st book's name "Game of Thrones" and all that I can do now is to wait for the next one to be released, which is NOT an easy task! The books took me through this amazing journey in which I found myself really attached to th

I still can't believe that I can't dive into the next book straight away as it isn't even out yet and that ending. Even though I watched the tv show I still didn't expect somethings that actually happened in the book! So it was basically like reading something I had no idea about and that is a good thing, I was determined that something wouldn't happen in this book, a certain death, but it did and I cried and cried and reread that part of the book around three times - it didn't help with closure ...more

Synopsis or something like that:

It is he fifth volume of A Song of Ice and Fire, the fantasy epic series which has been made very popular nowadays. If you have read the previous four parts you know that summarizing the fifth would be close to impossible; if you haven’t read any of them, well, just let me tell you no summary an no TV series can prepare you for the complexity of those books. In fact the plot is so convoluted as to defy synopsis. Really even the work of Tolkien pales in comparison.

So again, George R.R. Martin is unable to write a book that can be safely published as a single volume paperback. Perhaps somebody should explain to him that slightly smaller novels, published more regularly, might keep the haters at bay - heck it might even make it less of a chore for him to write. As with the split of A Storm of Swords the second book was the better part of the novel. Although less markedly so this time I thought.

The first third of the book continues pretty much where A Dan
That's it, finished, done, no more Game of thrones related fun now. Finished all current seasons of the television show, finished all currently available books, life is over haha. Seriously though, another great read! As much as I love the show I really do like how in depth the books are even though there is a lot to keep track of and a lot of characters!! The threads and events that happen in this book make book 6 a hard wait indeed...

Li uma crítica que dizia que o autor enrola durante 500 páginas e, nas últimas 50, tudo acontece. Não concordo. Senti-me presa a este livro do início ao fim, com todas as emoções à flor da pele. Este livro é fantástico, esta saga é fantástica, este autor é fantástico. Deixou-me a roer as unhas (se eu as roesse) e empolgadíssima para ler o próximo. Mal posso esperar!

Several people told me before I started A Dance with Dragons that the second half of the novel was the better and boy, were they right. This was everything I have wanted from A Song of Ice and Fire- twists, turns, surprises, and something to think about- since finishing A Storm of Swords.

Some of the storylines I was hoping to see again in part two of A Dance with Dragons were not present, mainly (view spoiler)
Regressar a Westeros é sempre uma aventura recheada de todo o tipo de emoções. Principalmente quando esta é a segunda parte de um livro tão aguardado como foi o A Dance with Dragons e quando sabemos que estamos a aproximar-nos do fim daquela que é a maior obra da Fantasia depois de O Senhor dos Anéis.
Apesar de estarmos a dois livros do fim, nostalgia é algo que Martin ainda não está para nos conceder e, num livro em que muitas personagens ficaram de parte e outras tiveram maior destaque, a dúvi

I think this final book was one of my favourites from the series so far!
The deaths and plot twists in this book were completely unexpected and I was really surprised. I am excited about a lot of the newer characters and the new direction some plots are heading in. Everything has changed and I really don't know what to expect from Winds of Winter.
My favourite POV from this book were Victarion Greyjoy and Cersei, they are both such interesting characters and their storylines have remained interest

Wow! Ich bin sowas von begeistert von diesen zwei Bänden - vor allem, da ja Band 7 und 8 für mich etwas geschwächelt haben, hatte ich mich hier sehr auf die Charaktere gefreut, die ich dort vermisst hatte. Ich war sofort wieder in der Geschichte drin; kleine Andeutungen haben geholfen, mir alles wieder ins Gedächtnis zu holen, da einige Figuren ja in den letzten beiden Bänden "gefehlt" haben. Mittlerweile fühlt es sich so an wie nach Hause kommen und ich bewundere hier vor allem die Einzelheiten ...more

Son kitabını okuduktan sonra artık bir zahmet bir tanecik review yazmaya karar verdim.

Serinin sonunda duygusal olarak iniş ve çıkışlardan yılmış durumdayım öncelikle, yok hangi karakter öldü (ya da ölmedi mi acaba) derken baya süründürüyor. Hiçbir karakterin ölümü veya hayatta kalması hakkında bir garanti alamıyorsunuz, yani karakterlere bağlanıyorsanız daha da süründürücü olabilir. Seride kıyamete kadar uzanan bir karakter listesi var, bunu o kadar önemsediğimden söylemiyorum ama bazen "ya bu

By far the best ending out of all of the endings in this series so far! The last 5 chapters were full of cliffhangers and death and just over all epicness.

For a while there I did think this one would be getting a 5.7/5 purely because I was mildly confused for a few chapters but then I got back on track pretty quickly and thank the Gods I did otherwise I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have understood anything that happened in that epilogue.

My only complaint was that there are still s

“Then you do not belong here. Death holds no sweetness in this house. We are not warriors, nor soldiers, nor swaggering bravos puffed up with pride. We do not kill to serve some lord, to fatten our purses, to stroke our vanity. We never give the gift to please ourselves. Nor do we choose the ones we kill. We are but servants of the God of Many Faces."
"Valar dohaeris." All men must serve.
"You know the words, but you are too proud to serve. A servant must be humble and obedient."
"I obey. I can be humbler than anyone."
That made him chuckle. "You will be the very goddess of humility, I am sure. But can you pay the price?"
"What price?"
"The price is you. The price is all you have and all you ever hope to have. We took your eyes and gave them back. Next we will take your ears, and you will walk in silence. You will give us your legs and crawl. You will be no one's daughter, no one's wife, no one's mother. Your name will be a lie, and the very face you wear will not be your own.”
