really liked it

I just finished re-reading this book and think I was too hard on it the first time around. Yes, it is a bit of a letdown since you don't see half of your favorite characters. However, I really enjoyed the emphasis on Dorne and the Iron Islands. Also, Cersei's spiral downwards and Jaime's rise in morals are great. Arya continues to be one of my favs as well.

Really the two weakest storylines are Sansa's (which don't bother me nearly as much on a reread as it gives you insight into Littlefinger) and Brieanne's. Brieanne's storyline is really just an excuse to excessivly worldbuild with some nice chunks of minor characters like Randyll Tarly as well. However, her chapters could have either been shortened or some cases eliminated altogether and in my mind the storyline would have been far better.

Anyway, although this book isn't as strong as the previous 3 in the series, it is still a great read.
