it was amazing
bookshelves: fantasy
Read in April, 2014

It took me a few tries to get into this book, I must admit... three times over the years, even before the TV show, I tried reading it and couldn't get past the first hundred pages. Then I made the choice to read it on an airplane. Free of distraction, I cracked that first hundred and suddenly got hooked. The vast cast of characters, the intense drama and the odd sort of murder mystery all made for a book that I tore through once I actually had the chance to do it. Having finished book one, I've charged right into book two. (And no, I haven't watched the TV show yet. No spoilers, please.)

Ken Magee Blake, well done for sticking with the book. It took me a few goes to get into it too, but it was worth it.

I have watched the TV show... it's brilliant, you have a big treat ahead of you.
