A Dance With Dragons – George RR Martin (2011)


The fifth and as of yet, final published book from George RR Martin’s A Song of Fire and Ice Series follows the adventures of the characters that were missing from A Feast For Crows – we find Tyrion, Jon Snow, Davos Seaworth, Danaerys, Theon Greyjoy, and a host of new POV characters as well; and, near the end of the book, the story moves forward, bringing back Cersei, Jaime and Arya. This is the longest of the books so far, but I enjoyed it more than I enjoyed Crows. As with the first of the series, A Game of Thrones, Martin revisits his habit of repeating imagery and wording throughout the book, especially when discussing Tyrion, and his new friend Penny. Along with this, my second complaint would be that he spends more time revisiting past events to describe what had happened in past books, however, in fairness to Martin, when he wrote this tome, there had been a lag of 6 years between Crows and Dragons, and most readers likely did not binge read the entire series in one month. So now, I join the rest of ASOFI fans, waiting impatiently for the twice delayed 6th installation of the series. (1125 pgs)
