it was ok

This book is not good. It's not that it's poorly written or that the idea of the story isn't good, but every character is so awful, it was really hard to care about the plot. But what Martin did that was brilliant was to focus each chapter on one character--and they're short--so at the end of each chapter, I felt, well, I'll keep reading because I hope this character gets killed in the next four pages.

Does this mean I didn't purchase the box set to finish the series? Of course not, but it's not like other series that you read where you're so in love with the scenery or the characters or the story line. It's really, you're hoping to hell the resolution shows some redemption for the three people who are actually good in the story.
