it was amazing
bookshelves: fantasy-paranormal, favorites
Read from September 02 to 26, 2012

It took me a while to pick up this book and actually give it a go, it has been surrounded with so much hype that of course, I tried to stray clear, but eventually I was sucked into the craze and I must say it was worth it.

At first I was a bit skeptical, 700 plus pages is surely to be a boring read, I mean somewhere along the line I'm going to end up getting bored...but NO, from the beginning to the end this book had me hooked. Martin characters are so well developed, that it makes me insanely jealous that I do not have this talent! his description if scenery, of the battles, of the castles are just on point and its like if I'm watching the series on HBO in my book. This man is gifted i must say.

This book has it ALL, action, adventure, romance, incest, sex and so much can you go wrong? YOU CAN'T...pick this book up, you won't regret it.
