A Dance with Dragons by George R.R. Martin
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I wasn't super impressed. In fact, I was fairly bored until the final 1/4 of the book. That's about when the action really started. Once Martin stopped talking about what some character ate for lunch or talking about the names of ships and whatnot it became interesting. Martin is really gifted when it comes to creating interesting names for people/castles/ships/bric-a-brac, but he needs the hand of a strong editor who isn't impressed with his fame and word count. He's good at painting pictures, but that doesn't do anything for those of us who want things to HAPPEN in a picture.
