  1. Do you remember that bit in the Scream movie where Stu Macher played by Matthew Lillard , turns to all the other film geeks and sets out the now famed set of rules for surviving a horror film and making it into the sequel FYI those rules were Never have sex Do not drink and never say i ll be right back Well someone should be writing a similar set of rules for the characters in the Song of Fire and Ice Series because, oh boy are these guys in trouble Despite the numerous sellswords, hedge knights [...]


  2. O.OOkay You know what time it is besides 9.00 p.m on a Tuesday night ASoIaF gif reaction time So, after an extended break after reading A Clash of Kings, it was time to jump into A Storm of Swords.And everything was good Even the Davos chapters.UntilAnd though slightly spoiled for part of the story, I was entirely unprepared for the feels.At first I was all, This book is DEAD TO ME Then my grief became anger.Then resignationAnd finally determination.Until that ending.


  3. We look up at the same stars and see such different things God that took me months and months At first I couldn t find the motivation, then there were other books I desperately wanted to read So this giant of a book had to wait.When I finally picked it up again, I finished it in a week While I had a slow start I really did not want to read about the Red Wedding , I didn t want to put it down again The plot thickened and every single chapter was intruiging, even those of the less interesting char [...]


  4. Night s King was only a man by light of daybut the night was his to rule And it s getting dark This one is definitely a game changer I ve never known so many major and minor characters to be killed off in a book must be some kind of record I really can t say a lot without spoilers The war for the iron throne is ongoing but it seems being away from the battle can be just as deadly as fighting in it It was not for murder that the gods punished himbut for slewing a guest under his roof that the god [...]


  5. Martin i u Oluji ma eva na vrhunski na in nastavlja svoju sagu o borbi za Gvozdeni presto.Na moju radost D ejmi Lanister kona no dobija svoje poglavlje Jako mi se dopada u kom pravcu Martin vodi njegovu pri u i moram re i da mi je on omiljeni Lanister, antiheroj koga u po etku niko ne voli, a onda malo po malo nekako ti se pri unja i postane ti drag, dobro meni bar On je zapravo, kad pogledamo celu pri u, jedini koji sve to radi radi zbog ljubavi, dobro nije to ba najzdraviji odnos koji je mogao [...]


  6. Oh my bloody hell and fuckDear George,I have read A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, and A Storm of Swords one after another and in any spare moment over the last couple of months As a result, I think that this reality is starting to take over My emotional involvement in the lives of your characters is reaching an unhealthy depth, and your brutality with them is breaking my motherfucking heart I just finished ASOS a moment ago, and said motherfucking heart is beating some serious drum and bass [...]


  7. This is the ending that book three should have had The first half, A Storm of Swords Steel and Snow, just wasn t strong enough to stand on its own But that s okay as the second half than makes up for it From the off, there are bodies Not just secondary characters either, but people we thought were going to be key players in The Game.A number of characters get built out a lot as well Jamie continues his transition to three dimensions with the start of a conscience Stannis starts to come out of [...]


  8. My favourite book of the series so far I will not ruin it for anybody, but this book turned me into an emotional reck in the best and worse possible ways It gave me moments were I found myself jumping round like a child who actually did get a pony for christmas, moments when I bawled like a baby and finally, moments when I was yelling my head off, threatening to never read another page and swearing like a banshee This series needs to form part of everyone s life it is so unpredictable and engros [...]


  9. I DON T EVEN KNOW HOW TO BEGIN TO REVIEW THIS BOOK I NEED TO CRY FIRST SQUALL ACTUALLY, LIKE A MURDERED ZUCCHINI BECAUSE OMG NO AND YES AND NOOOOOOO breaks down All you really need to know is that every book is better than the last and this is probably my favourite book yet It was so incredible So many plot twists We got answers for questions in bk 1 like a who killed John Erand and b who tried to kill Bran with the knife There were horrific deaths Like REALLY REALLY BAD I m absolutely bawling A [...]


  10. I have slowly been making my way through the Song of Ice and Fire series and this has been my favourite of what I have read so far In case you are wondering I have watched all of the TV show so I do know what is going to happen in the books before I read them but this doesn t really bother me I won t go into detail about the plot of this book as I wouldn t want to spoil it for anyone but I would definitely recommend to anyone who hasn t yet picked up the series All of my favourites characters we [...]


  11. AT LAST I SEE THE LIGHT Allow me to finally applaud you, George R.R Martin without apprehension or dissatisfaction, without a hint of weariness or disappointment Allow me to finally pass beyond the I want to love it, but I don t into I was swept away by fire and ice and I ascend now as a different woman My favourite things about this book 1 Jon Snow s every move the light of my heart 2 Jaime s journey to discover morals, honor and true loveNow, I can t tell you what it was about this installment [...]

  13. DAMN GOOD Nothing is predictable, no main character is safe Starks bled heavily Lannisters bled Winter is coming for everyone Valar morghulis.


  14. Dieser Teil hat mir bisher bei weitem am besten gefallen Es ist so unfassbar viel passiert und ich bin aus dem Staunen gar nicht rausgekommen Absolut geil


  15. Possibly the most devastating, awesome, exciting and surprising instalment yet, and I m starting to get a sneaking suspicion that the real story is only just startingIf you d told me during the first book that by this point I would be pinning all of my hopes on The Hound and Jaime freaking Lannister, of all people, I d have thought you were certifiable But that would appear to be where we are at the moment, with Jaime in particular evolving into being one of the interesting characters.Containin [...]

  17. Even though I knew what was going to happen, I was SO not prepared for any of this This installment is by far my favourite so far



  18. Always keep your foes confused If they are never certain who you are or what you want, they cannot know what you are like to do next This book is pure genius It made me wince in pain when a few of my favourite characters were murdered It made me dizzy with joy when my most despised and hated character was murdered And it made me feel all the little things in between during the whole span of A Storm of Swords Weddings have become perilous than battles, it would seem I loved the way A Storm of Sw [...]



  19. WHAT IN THE NAME OF SEVEN BLOODY HELLS DID I JUST READ This book is phenomenal Full of stabbing, gutting, betrayal and a lot There is bloody battle everywhere What would happen if there is a war Just imagine.Every character has grown a lot but how long would they live, we don t know Now I know why George R.R Martin is well known for the characters death Simply can t explain my bloody love for this book I was disappointed with its first part, but man this book surpassed all my expectations and ra [...]

  21. Review to be updated Thousands of stars for this bookI can say that A Storm of Swords is the best book in the series so far I loved the second part way because of the things that happened in it, a lot of deaths and actions that I can t lie but love and get angry What happened in this book is actually two seasons from the TV show This was a brilliant read, I m so happy about this book like I get so happy when I read a masterpiece just like this one I can t wait to finish the books and excited fo [...]




  22. Rating 5 5This book was absolutely amazing Granted it s the second part of book 3 so it was expected to have action and shocking moments than the first part So many deaths, so many twists and turns, so many freaky and unexpected things I loved this I ve also watched the third season along side reading this This one moves the story even further ahead, I am guessing midway through the 4th season for some characters I really want to see what will happen next, but I don t know when I ll pick up the [...]


  23. Only when he grasped the offered hand did he realize that the rider wore no glove His hand was black and cold, with fingers hard as stone page 82 Samwell chapter ending I m SAM, the black thing sobbed Page 207 Bran chapter middle part He sucks harder than mine Gilly strocked the babe s head as she held him to her nipple Page 490 Samwell chapter beginning So what I want to tell you with those quotes Where is the storyline Sometimes I feel like GRRM is missing the plot There are over 400 pages bet [...]


  24. It has taken a while, but Martin s world is finally in its maturity All of the seeds he has planted in the first two books have grown into cut throat plots and killer conclusions Martin s writing style is still dry, but the trials he puts his characters through made me forget that A Storm of Swords isn t perfect This is the first volume of the Song of Ice and Fire series that I managed to read in little over two weeks usually these take me at least a few months My favourite book in the series so [...]



  25. I loved the third book of this series so much I m not going into the details of the story because it s too damn complicated to even try to explain it But I m going to say few things George R R Martin has a way with words that he can easily describes action scenes very vividly Plus his language is mighty beautiful The characters development is so unreal in this book It s too damn good to be true You can see how they grow into their own skin, how they improve chapter by chapter My favorite charac [...]
