779/1128 pages in, 2 months in, and I am still so enthralled in this series' storyline!

I had hoped for a happy ending, but of course it didn't happen. The book did answer some questions, and brought up some others.

As always with the Game of Thrones series, I am torn between the rip-roaring adventure (which has kept me reading thus far) and the frequent (often gratuitous) descriptions of women being raped, beaten or otherwise abused. Despite his token brave females Arya and Daenerys, Martin envisions a world in which woman have no more clout or worth than they did in the Dark Ages. Surely in one of the many cultures he describes, women could have some status apart from being rape victims and/or chess pieces. (And yes, even the Free Folk capture and sexually assault their women.) Part of me wants to make a political protest and boycott the rest of the series, but I'm afraid that Martin has me hooked. It would be helpful if the family trees at the back of the book were in the front instead, so that readers could have a handy reference guide as they go. A brief synopsis of the previous books in the series wouldn't go amiss either. And what's with Martin's obsession with similar-sounding names? Loras, Loran, Lorth, Sandor, Gregor, Tyrell, Tyrion, Tyvek, Tyvas, etc., etc. It's no wonder his readers are occasionally confused.

This is by far my favorite of the books in the series so far. Lots of things you don't see coming. This book keeps you guessing. On to Feast of crows!

Amazing book! Sure, it's long and there is lots of details, but in the end it makes it all worth it. Highly recommend this book... and the entire series!
