liked it
Read from February 25 to December 22, 2012

Liked it, but not as much as the first one.
I had several loooong breaks in my reading.
Maybe too many long battles in this one. It is not that I don't like battles, but I had a feeling that they were described too much in details and that they were prepared during a long time before we even had the battles.
Also, I quite like the Winterfell environment, and the Stark family, and what happens to every one of them is so... well I won't spoil.
I will probably not start the third book now. I will wait a little.

42.0% "I really like this book, even if there are some characters I want to read the story more than others. I have a feeling that a large number of chapters I just read are about Arya and Tyrion... which are not the characters I want to know the most about. Tyrion is ok, but I do not really like Arya. There are so many characters for which I want to know what will happen next!"
