“A Dance with Dragons” By George R.R. Martin Review

In the aftermath of a colossal battle, the future of the Seven Kingdoms hangs in the balance—beset by newly emerging threats from every direction. In the east, Daenerys Targaryen, the last scion of House Targaryen, rules with her three dragons as queen of a city built on dust and death. But Daenerys has thousands of enemies, and many have set out to find her. As they gather, one young man embarks upon his own quest for the queen, with an entirely different goal in mind.

The fifth book in the “A song of ice and fire” series done and the time to wait for more books in this series have began for me as well. 

This book gotta be the weakest book in the “A song of ice and fire” series so far. Because it has all the characters I less care about. I love Tyrion but we don’t get much from him in this book. And even thou I am team Targaryen I hate Daenerys there is something about her which always made me dislike her.

The plot in this book is okay but I have had big expectations for this book as for the previous books in this series which this book didn’t live up to. The plot in this book was less engaging than in the previous books in this series, and there were couple of chapters which felt like they were written just to make this book longer. Of course this book have had some very good moments but also it have had some bad moments which were on the edge of annoying me in a way. 

The main reason why I’m so big “A song of ice and fire” fan is because the politics in the series and this book had more drama in it than politics which is okay but it could have been better if there were more politics in it. 

Another thing which annoyed me here is that we get a lots of Daenerys but only like 15 pages about dragons which are pretty much at the very end. Daenerys is a Targaryen and Targaryens have dope dragons and are the best fucking house in this series. Targaryens have something for me which makes them the number 1, but Daenerys doesn’t live up to it. She feels like a kid who tries to be a queen but has no idea what she is doing which makes me hate her as a stand alone character and this book gives more of this aspect of Daenerys which I hate as you already know. 

The characters here felt less fun, engaging and interesting in this book than in the previous 4 books in this series which was the main reason why I rated this book so low when you compare it with the rest of the books in this series. The characters in this book gave me the feeling that George R.R Martin stoped caring about them and that he just wanted to write this book to cash in a little bit. 

However I loved that we got more of the Many-Faced God which is one of my favourite things in the “A song of ice and fire” series. To be honest the Many-Faced God and the temple of Many-Faced God was he best thing about this book for me. And it was the main reason why I continued to read this book to the end despite the fact that there were a lots of things which I didn’t like about this book.

The writing style here was very good. It was on the level with the rest of the books in this series which I appreciated probably the most. 

I give this book 5 / 5 

“A Clash of Kings” By George R.R. Martin Review

A comet the color of blood and flame cuts across the sky. Two great leaders—Lord Eddard Stark and Robert Baratheon—who hold sway over an age of enforced peace are dead, victims of royal treachery. Now, from the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding shores of Winterfell, chaos reigns. Six factions struggle for control of a divided land and the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms, preparing to stake their claims through tempest, turmoil, and war. 

Another amazing, awesome, incredible and beautiful fantasy book. This one is the second part in the “A song of ice and fire” book series. I gotta be honest here and say that this second book is less impressive than the first book in this book series but none a less it is still fucking brilliant.

This book has a lot to live up to and it doesn’t disappoint the reader. Which in my opinion is very good because when it comes to book series it tends to go down the hill after the first book but it doesn’t happen yet with this book series which im really thankful for because if the rest of the series is so good as the first two books then it might be my all time favorite book series.

The character are so awesome, they feel so fucking real. And every single character is so different from the rest which makes this book and whole series so unique as it is. Every character in this book has depth to them, they have characteristic which are unique only to them. Every character have things which they don’t like and like. As I’ve already said every character in this book feels like real human beings because there are so much into them. 

The writing style here is also as impressive as the characters. Because the writing style is so good that the pages fly past when you pick up the book and you will be siting for hours and hours reading this book without even noticing it. The writing style makes you seeing these things in your head which you are currently are reading about.

The plot in this book is just amazing. There is love, there is drama, there is death, there is the unknown, there is betrayal, there are big families who are fighting for the throne, there are friends, there are enemies, there are lover, there is intrigue, there is fighting, there is power struggle and there is so much more. When there is so much things in a book you just can’t help yourself but love it.

There is also history in this book of what was going on before the current events in this book and before the events in the first book. Whenever there is so much history in a book, how could you not love it ? Because most of the fantasy books now on days doesn’t have that aspect which this series so far has. 

This book also needs to get extra points for being a page-turner. The main reason why I didn’t get into this series sooner is because the size of ever book has always scared me. But after getting into this series I’ve resized that this series (at least so far) is a page turner which really helps because every book in this series is huge. But since it is a page turner you don’t really feel the size of every book because the pages go so fast by.

The dialogs between the characters in this book is also important to mention so here it is. The dialogos here are pretty good but some of them felt little bit off and unnatural but there are few of them. It takes couple points away from the rating but nothing major. 

I give this book 4 / 5

“A Game of Thrones” By George R.R. Martin Review

Long ago, in a time forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons out of balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. The cold is returning, and in the frozen wastes to the north of Winterfell, sinister and supernatural forces are massing beyond the kingdom’s protective Wall. At the center of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a family as harsh and unyielding as the land they were born to. Sweeping from a land of brutal cold to a distant summertime kingdom of epicurean plenty, here is a tale of lords and ladies, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and bastards, who come together in a time of grim omens. Here an enigmatic band of warriors bear swords of no human metal; a tribe of fierce wildlings carry men off into madness; a cruel young dragon prince barters his sister to win back his throne; and a determined woman undertakes the most treacherous of journeys. Amid plots and counterplots, tragedy and betrayal, victory and terror, the fate of the Starks, their allies, and their enemies hangs perilously in the balance, as each endeavors to win that deadliest of conflicts: the game of thrones.

Let me start this review with saying that this book is so far the best books I’ve read so far and Ive read 250 +. Which really speaks for itself if you can tell. 

This book easily takes the cake for me when it comes to the best fantasy book I’ve read so far.

I had this book on my shelve unread for a good time and its because the size of it scared me every time I wanted to pick it up. But now I finally read it and I can honestly say that this book is in my top 10 books so far in life. 

The writing style is brilliant, incredible and amazing in every meaning of these three words. The writing style in this book makes you imagine the scenes in every page of this book. The writing style really drags you into the story and wont let you quit reading until you read the last page. 

This book is long, very long but when you start reading it you wont know when you did finish the book. It goes very fast because it drags you in and you will lose track of time when you first get into it. And thats how every book should be like. 

Because of books like this one I’m a huge book lover and a nerd like I am. 

As you might know already there are millions and millions of reviews on this book, but I felt like I need as well give my thoughts on this book. 

The setting of the whole story is just nothing like you have seen before in any fiction / fantasy book. Because it has so much into it. There are a whole world which George R R Martin have builded for us. There are many different families, places, problems, conflicts, drama, intrigues, conspiracy plots and so much more.

And every character and family has its own problems, roles etc. And every character is so different from each other that you almost cant believe that one person have gotten the idea and written the entire book. 

This book is so different from any other fantasy book because every character has their own behaviour, habits and style of talking, walking, acting etc. But in every other fantasy book the characters are so similar to each other that it is hard to tell them apart. And thats why I love these characters in this book and the book itself so much. Because every character have so much depth into them, sometimes they have so much depth that it feels like these characters are real people because they are so well written.

Sometimes these characters in this book feels like they have more depth and meaning in them than a lots of people in the real world. 

This book has everything a great book should have. It has action, drama, problems, travel, conspires, intrigues, dragons, hate, love, friendship, family bonds and so much more. 

This book should also get huge points for its world build up, because the world in this book is so big that you cant even remember every place which is mentioned in this book. And every place in this book have a lots of unique things about them which makes them stand out from the rest. 

And every big family in this book has characteristics which makes them who they are. And every family stands for something different and something deeper than just people who soon or later gonna die. And when one of these main characters die in this book you will become very sad because you already got sort of a bond with them throughout their journey in the book.

And we all the time get new and good characters which we as well form sort of a bond with them. Which is very good. 

The storyline is deep and it takes a lots of effort to even get a brief imagine of the storyline because it so deep and big.

I give this book 4 / 5
