Storm of Swords Book Review--Awesome
My favorite story line by far is Arya's, and I'll admit to being a bit frustrated with the way her story line ended here. Not that it was at all bad, and she's definitely headed off to more adventure, but it just wasn't particularly what I wanted her to do (go find Gendry!!!)
Of course Tyrion's story line is not far behind and I can't get enough of Jon and the Wall either. And any way in which I might have been frustrated serve only to propel me toward volume 4 that much faster.
This is the kind of book that, by the end, it royally sucks to be every. Single. Character. You look back at the beginning to where everyone is relatively normal and happy, and it's so sad because by this time, they're all royally screwed up! But you love the characters so much and are routing for them so hard that you can't help but love it and want more. (Needless to say, the fantastic-ness is not because the story is happy and bubbly.)
Here's to hoping the story stays this good for the next two books and the sixth one, which I understand is expected some time next year. Hooray for epic fantasy sagas! They keep me entirely too entertained! Can't wait to read the next one! :D
