Our final messages on the topic:
H: Oh dear, and full of hate?
A: Slightly intrigued at the end of course due to the damn dragons. And slightly full of hate.
H: Keep your hate for George not me!!
I finally finished this monstrosity this weekend. I am underwhelmed. I was hoping for a huge payoff in the end that would make me want to keep reading or to understand why everyone goes on with love for this book. I didn’t find it.
In the end of Book #1 I found myself mildly curious about what the future holds for the dragons and for the remaining Starks. I kind of want to want to keep reading just to see if Jamie Lannister gets what he deserves. I really hope he does.
But it is disappointing to me that we can’t have Arya without Sansa or Catelyn without Lysa. And I won’t even get into the rape again, but seriously George, enough already.
2 stars from me!
I trust my sister and seeing her give her last Game Thrones read 5 stars (#3 A Storm of Swords) makes me curious, but at this moment I just don’t care. There are way too many books I am excited to read, and way too many books with kick ass female protagonists for me to be rushing onto Book 2.
The Lumatere Chronicles by Melina Marchetta. You knew I had to push them right?
Graceling trilogy by Kristin Cashore
Fire & Thornes trilogy by Rae Carson
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
And based on reviews Holly and I are about to start His Fair Assassin, which I am really excited about. These have been on great sale on amazon so pick it up and read along with us! Have other and better fantasy suggestions for me? Please share!
