Lisa Reads: A Dance with Dragons
(A Song of Ice and Fire #5)
by George R.R. Martin
Oh my goodness! My head hurts! I didn’t see that coming!
Okay, that is pretty much what I’ve been saying for this entire series. Planning and writing ASoIaF has GOT to be a challenge. I honor anyone who can do so much with so many for so long… And still make it worth reading.
When I grow up, I want to be GRRM. Luckily for him, there is very little danger of me growing up.
Some of the people in previous books that I thought were dead, aren’t. Sometimes I’m glad, sometimes I wish I could place the “kill shot” myself. In one case, I was sorry that he was still alive until he did something semi-decent.
It looks like some of my favorites got killed in this book, but if the series on HBO is anything related to the books… I’m going to get fooled again.
I will read this series numerous times. I still prefer J.R.R. Tolkien and CS Lewis. Yes, I am a fuddy-duddy. I can live with that!
OH! No, I’m not watching the series. I don’t do HBO or Netflix. I probably will watch it eventually, but I’m not in a rush. Until then, I joined the ranks of people waiting for George RR Martin to finish the series. There are many other books on my list that I’m going to read.
