    That's a common reaction. It's much better on a reread and I picked up on a lot more the second time through. It's tough to follow Storm though.

    i went into it expecting it to be worse though after seeing some reader reviews, it wasn't bad by any means, it's nice to see the inner workings of cersei's mind

    Her descent into madness is great. There are some other great moments in there as well. Most people didn't get into Brienne's travels, but her arc held one of my favorite things.

    i really liked the greyjoy plot line but it's there were a total of 4-6 chapters of it, didn't think that was enough

    regardless i'll start dance today, i'm sure it'll take me months to finish

    The Dorne parts are kind of lame too because it's so foreign and new to the series.
    What?

    Ciaran Hinds has been cast as Mance Rayder. Once again, I'm not feeling it. He seems a bit old for the role, but maybe I just pictured Mance in his forties, I dunno.

    It probably doesn't help that the last thing I saw him in was Ghost Rider 2 playing a Devil that was literally falling apart due to old age.

    Ooh, thanks for the heads-up on the sample chapter. I'll have to check that out now.

    My co-worker has been reading the series recently, which has reminded me of how deeply I was sucked into this world when I read them. I definitely need to go through it again soon. Back to the good ol' days of Winterfell, when everything was perfect.

    Picked mine up yesterday. It has some pretty great features. The only problem us that the new expanded maps make me want to buy the new set of hardbacks for all of the new maps. I have issues.

    Definitely. It's been my plan to buy whatever super sexy edition of all the books whenever the last one gets released, because you know it's going to happen. But this for eight bucks is an easy buy now.
