The TV series has some of the same flaws, but improves on the books by removing some of these idiotic cliffhangers.
This is a collection that makes you think and leaves you thinking. Put a woman in maximum security prison and see what happens. There are oodles of witty dialogue all throughout the novel, as well as some great slapstick moments.
Dense to the point of labour, but captivating well past my bed time, Martin knows exactly where to draw the line between lots of information and tedious boredom. Finally, the use of Deus ex Machina, its everywhere.
That being when he learns of what the Queen has done. Well not nearly as big a bitch as it was to lay out good money then waste hours of our lives reading this self indulgent piffle mate. Don't waste your time on this. The subplot with Dany.

There is no doubt in my mind that GRRM is one of the most prolific writer of our time. However, after the third book everything went downhill. Lots of things happen, sure. I read these book and absolutely had to recommend them to every book buddy.
Juliet works for Glenda, has a crush on Trev, is simple and beautiful, and becomes a famous fashion model. Yeah some of the writing was ham fisted, who am I to judge, but the plot was like one of those Rockwood Gardnes trees with plums, peaches, cherries and apples all on the same tree.
Glenda is a friend of Mr. I think I've only read this Pratchett novel once before, and on the re-read, I enjoyed it more than I expected to. Don't get me wrong. The worst Terry Pratchett novel is still wonderfully enjoyable. From the Taoist beliefs of Ursula Le Guin’s Earthsea books to the complexity of Steven Erikson’s Malazan Book of the Fallen.
