Well, this book was quite a ride. I do not often have a book that really lets me forget everything while I read it, but when I finished it, I was shocked to find I was in bed and not in Westeros. The only other books I remember that did this to me were The Name of the Wind,The Wise Man's Fear and Rumo: And His Miraculous Adventures (Yes, I know it's probably considered a child book, but it's good nontheless).

I can't really pin down why I liked this book so much, but I found every one of the main characters loveable, especially Tyrion and the way he goes about life. The story was engaging, and I felt for the characters when horrible things happened, as I rejoiced with them when finally something good happened to them (Although you cannot say this happens very often).

All in all, the book did a great job of setting the stage for the third one, which I am planning to read after a brief excursion to Pratchett with the Fantasy Book Club. It's already waiting...
