it was ok

I could have finished this book back in October when I started it, and I seriously considered leaving the last 100 pages unread because this book was so obnoxious. As it went on, it annoyed me more and more. The politics were ridiculous, the schemes were lame, and the sex scenes (which the show is clearly known for...) were cringe-worthy. (Seriously, was there a single Daenerys chapter without a stupid 2 sentence long sex "scene"? Because I really don't think so. It became laughable really quickly. I get it, she's supposed to be the sexy one, but is Dany molesting her unconscious husband supposed to be sexy? Because it was disturbing...) All in all, this book sucked. And while everyone praises GRRM for his "descriptive writing", I'm still here laughing at his descriptions like "Arya screwed up her face" and his heavy use of the word "manhood". Gross.
