    After the pace of the last three books (less so the fourth), having a book in which very little happens was distinctly disappointing. Particularly after waiting six years!

      I really didn’t feel that – or no more than in previous books which I had just reread. I like the sense that this is a world in which getting around takes time and is miserable – and actually didn’t find anything quite as slow as Brienne’s Pointless Quests or Arya’s Adventures In The Thirty Years War.

        I suppose that for me, each other previous books had left the world in a different situation than it had started in, and this was the first book where the status quo hadn’t really changed much.

        I think that is because it is the book in which all the threads Martin has spun are starting to weave together.

    Is the prose still as bad as in the first book? Because that’s where I stopped. Martin used to be better than that.
