it was amazing
Read from June 06 to 17, 2012

This might be my favorite so far out of the entire series. The character development is impeccable. Every character is seen, developed, progresses, advances, whatever other word you want to use as a synonym. There is so much that has happened to each and every character by this point in the story that you begin to wonder if it's taking a toll on them and, voila, it is. And each character is different so they each have different reactions to things. Honestly, this series reads to me like a really well-written TV show, with each book (comparable to each TV show episode/season) having its own plot, its own dramas, each character having choices and decisions and life changing experiences. And yes, there are a lot of characters, I'll agree with that. And if it were a smaller book without any second, third, thirteenth book to read, then I'd say too many characters. But with over 11,000 pages altogether, over four million words altogether, I would say the amount of characters is perfectly reasonable. And yes, there is a lot of sex in this book (not at all explicit, only hinted at but also very obvious) but, be honest, that's what life is. If there was no sex at all, I'd be confused. Sex is a part of life, whether it be real life or fictional life.

Anyway. I really enjoyed this book. Like I said, my favorite so far out of the entire series. Looking forward to the next!
