3.5-4 stars for a book by one of my favorite authors! The first 3/4 seemed as if it would never end. Interesting? Yes, but enough is enough.The last part was more what I expected. Martin's genius at writing a love story! What an amazing and surprising ending! Overall, a beautiful story!

Finished second reading on October 12, 2012

I had to re-read this one as I had negative feelings about it the first time and thought it was surely better than I had given it credit for. I was right.

I still had the feeling that it dragged through much of it, but then how could it not and be the same book? That part of the book (which was really most of it) still was work to read, but I had a "softer" feel this reading. Martin is such a superb writer that it's impossible for me not to like a book written by him! What really surprised me was the ending! I cannot believe that I had totally forgotten it. How do you do that?!

I would still give it 4 stars. For me, it was not "amazing, as are many of his (like THUNDER AND RAIN), but it was beautifully written and I thoroughly enjoyed this second reading!
