really liked it
bookshelves: fantasy
Read in February, 2008

A good story that takes a bit of time to get into. There are alot of characters and family trees that are hard to keep track of and I didn't know about the appendix until I finished the last page (that would've helped). It wasn't what I thought it would be, yet I was sucked in.. going on to Book #2 which has a banner on it saying 'The Best Fantasy Novel Of the Year'... that's lofty... but I'm taking the plunge.

Valerie Have you gotten through a lot of this? I picked it up, read the first page, and then started reading something else. Is it any good?

message 2: by Kim (new) - rated it 4 stars

Kim I'm about 50 pages into it and I can see some promise...unfortunately there are no gold wristbands as of yet.

Valerie Let me know if it gets any better... I finished Lullaby last night, and I'm still working on A Mango Shaped Space. Maybe I'll read AGOT next.

Valerie Is it getting better? I noticed you put the other books in the series on your to-read list...

Valerie Is it super-wizardy?

message 7: by Kim (new) - rated it 4 stars

Kim not yet, it's mostly kings and stuff..good character fodder... but I did see that George R. R. Martin has a fantasy game out there about the series.

Valerie Any hot knights?

message 9: by Kim (new) - rated it 4 stars

Kim honorable lords count? I think that there are hot knights in the making... they're 14 right now... but I see potential.

Josiah What about Lyanna?
