And I'm still a bit miffed by Jon's last chapter (not really in a bad way)..I wanted to toss the book after I read that...not because of the death or possibility of non-death but because you saw it coming. You saw it coming from miles away and it still surprised the shit out of me. And I won't know what happens for a couple of years. I think sometimes I get too invested in characters sometimes, but its possible GRRM wrote them that way. Which is why this gets so high a rating, it made me forget and you feel what these characters feel sometimes and I love that. This is a fucking story that drags you away from yourself and you see, smell, feel, and live these characters. Well at least I do. I will say Dany annoyed the hell out of me. Where the hell was the strong dragon queen from a couple of books ago? Someone needed to slap some sense into her...chaining the dragons...WTF?!?!?! And Theon...oh poor poor Theon..I really felt for him..I couldn't have cared less for him before in past books but jezus! Dude had it fucking bad. Missing fingers, toes, teeth, pride, manhood...sanity. I mean he had it coming but I think it was that and then some
Good book. Didn't like the ending much. Maybe there will be a sequel to clear it all up..or maybe you're to wonder where the hell he went. Other then...more Good book. Didn't like the ending much. Maybe there will be a sequel to clear it all up..or maybe you're to wonder where the hell he went. Other then that it was well plotted, good charactered, and different from the usual handsome/super-awesome-spectacular supernatural dude and the boring chick/wood plank who are in loves forever..
I typed up a review twice before only to have it baweeted.(cause I'm an idiot who can't hit the save button) So I am grumpy and don't want to do it again, so you get the short version.(less)
Now don't get me wrong, I do like this series, but I'm having a hard time believing that Kallie is the main character. Honestly "sassy comeback line"...more Now don't get me wrong, I do like this series, but I'm having a hard time believing that Kallie is the main character. Honestly "sassy comeback line" or "smelly smells of something smellygood" seem the likely candidate of the main... nevermind. After two whole books I really don't know as much as I would like to know about well.. a lot. And I hate unanswered questions that are left open just for the purpose of having a next book. It leaves me grumpy and unsatisfied. The book I read before this one (dance with dragons) left it that way but was written a hellaton better. SO I IS A GRUMPYHEAD NOW!!
Damn. All I am doing is bashing. I don't mean to. Really.
(view spoiler)[ Layne is back..but asleep a lot. Kallie punches at people..but only connects with one nose. She also has Super-Loa in side her. Belladonna.. is sassy and perving on anything with a dick...which I enjoy. One Dallas chapter is all we get to learn that Dallas is now a Loa's bitch. Not a lot of Augustine which makes me sad..cause he is probably one of the best characters in this series. A giganticle storm is gonna kill everyone... AND THEY FUCK IT AWAY!! No fucking shit...DEUS SEX MACHINA, BITCHES!! HAHAHAHHAHAH... Yeah... that killed it. As much as I love any scene with Layne, the deus sex scene just felt like..crap. And I know it was for the good of ALL OF Nawlins and shit but.. son I was dissapoint. (hide spoiler)]
Buuutt..It was pretty enjoyable. Kinda fluffy, but tolerable for the Layne bits.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>(less)
