it was amazing
bookshelves: 2016-to-read-list

After 5 long months, I finally finished it. I was hesitant at first because of the length and it took as long as LotR: RotK to read with both suffering from other distractions to my reading along the way whether it ways studying with RotK or enjoying a good time doing something else for fun. The book starts out at a relatively slow pace and having a lot characters is definitely confusing but at least one knows the main ones after a while but other supporting ones sometimes fall through the cracks. There were a few surprises (no spoilers) along the way, although some were anticipated or at least thought of at some point. It starts to become interesting and gripping but not from the get-go as at first it's just enjoyable, still getting to know the universe and characters but not sure where it's headed although I know G.R.R. Martin killed a lot characters but thankfully don't know who yet and trying to stay spoiler free till I read the next, but need a break from GoT for a while.
