did not like it
bookshelves: fantasy
Read from July 15 to August 01, 2011

Don't get me wrong, I really liked the HBO show, but I have never been so bored while reading a book as I was during all of this. It just didn't end. And it was dry, dry, dryyyyy

There probably two main reasons why I disliked this book.

1) Constant POV shifts. I can't stand them in books. I want to stick by one character throughout the whole story.

2) It's high fantasy-ish. Or Medieval fantasy... or whatever. It's just not my cup of tea.

I won't be reading the rest of this series. I'll stick to the show and let that be my exposure to GRRM. Sorry. Just didn't like this.
