Epic fantasy seems to be an understatement. This book is so vast that some of the characters have never even talked about each other. I have to look up the Wikipedia page to help me remember all the people. But am I invested in their stories? You bet I am! Martin is a great story-teller and while the books are notably long, there’s nothing I would have taken out. I loved every twist and turn and betrayal and reveal.

It’s hard to pick a favorite part of the book. There were scenes I enjoyed more than others, but I can’t say a particular one stands out as my favorite. I did like Martin’s descriptions of the landscapes. He’s created so many unique places and landscapes and his descriptions of them really helped pull me into the world in a way I wouldn’t have been without them. With something so fantastical, it’s good he’s able to use words so effectively.
