    So I know Empire is the best film in the trilogy because I've seen it a hundred times, but it's a different thing to choose the best book in a series. Unfortunately, I've only read George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire books twice (and actually only the first three novels at this...

    N.B.: As with my review of A Clash of Kings, I will avoid spoilers for this book but not for previous books. We had a good thing going back in the beginning of A Game of Thrones. Robert Baratheon was King of Westeros, and while he wasn't a great guy, at least the kingdom was stable....

    Second read on 19/03/2016 - 26/04/2016 I haven't been reading as much as I would like to these days. Aside from this series, which is more of a commitment than anything else, I rarely reach for other books. Perhaps it's because I'm reading nonfiction, but I rarely feel enthusiasti...

    Okay, not really. There's still a shit-ton more pages after this. ...

    I enjoyed this 3rd book in the Ice and Fire cycle where we see Martin's writing mature and his character development deepen. There are lots of memorable moments here and it is mostly the subject of S03 and part of S04 of the associated HBO TV show. I preferred it to its two predecessor...

    Several aspects of this book make me want to give it only one star, several push me to rate it closer to the opposite end of the spectrum. I give it just over three stars. On the one-star end: The writing style grates. Opening to a random page, I find "green as the summer grass" ...

    ***SPOILER ALERT******SPOILER ALERT******SPOILER ALERT******SPOILER ALERT******SPOILER ALERT*** What can I say that hasn't been said before? This series just keeps getting better and better. The third instalment had more twists and turns than I could count, taking me from utter elat...

    So I know Empire is the best film in the trilogy because I've seen it a hundred times, but it's a different thing to choose the best book in a series. Unfortunately, I've only read George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire books twice (and actually only the first three novels at this...

    N.B.: As with my review of A Clash of Kings, I will avoid spoilers for this book but not for previous books. We had a good thing going back in the beginning of A Game of Thrones. Robert Baratheon was King of Westeros, and while he wasn't a great guy, at least the kingdom was stable....

    Lo he terminado pero me he demorado mucho más de lo que esperaba. Como me suele pasar con los libros que me gustan mucho; intencionalmente atraso la lectura todo lo que puedo porque NO ME LOS QUIERO TERMINAR. No sé si será mi favorito de la saga, pero 'Tormenta de espadas' hasta ah...

    This year (2011) has been rough for those of us who count ourselves Minnesota Twins fans. A few weeks ago, however, I watched Francisco Liriano nearly pitch a perfect game. Earlier in the season, Liriano pitched a no-hitter, which was a bright spot in an otherwise unremitting series of...

    Ok, so I'm 3 books into this series. 2972 pages. Let's take stock of the Starks: (view spoiler)[ * Eddard was a lord. Now he is dead. * Catelyn was a lordly lady with a loving, honorable husband and 5 beautiful children. Now she's a widow, her kids are all dead (or so she thinks),...

    DAMN! It?s like if you buy a muscle car on Friday afternoon and you drive it home some friends come over to look at it and you know and they all know how cool it is. Then on the second day you get to drive it around town and everyone that sees it knows you?ve got a beast, a low ...

    Gut reaction review: WTF!!! Post blown-gasket review: A Storm of Swords should be called A Storm of Suitors for all the matchmaking going on through out. I'm not complaining, mind you. It's all handled with a touch (or sometimes a bludgeoning) of intrigue to keep it intere...

    Second read on 19/03/2016 - 26/04/2016 I haven't been reading as much as I would like to these days. Aside from this series, which is more of a commitment than anything else, I rarely reach for other books. Perhaps it's because I'm reading nonfiction, but I rarely feel enthusiasti...

    Okay, not really. There's still a shit-ton more pages after this. ...

    I enjoyed this 3rd book in the Ice and Fire cycle where we see Martin's writing mature and his character development deepen. There are lots of memorable moments here and it is mostly the subject of S03 and part of S04 of the associated HBO TV show. I preferred it to its two predecessor...

    Several aspects of this book make me want to give it only one star, several push me to rate it closer to the opposite end of the spectrum. I give it just over three stars. On the one-star end: The writing style grates. Opening to a random page, I find "green as the summer grass" ...

    ***SPOILER ALERT******SPOILER ALERT******SPOILER ALERT******SPOILER ALERT******SPOILER ALERT*** What can I say that hasn't been said before? This series just keeps getting better and better. The third instalment had more twists and turns than I could count, taking me from utter elat...

    So I know Empire is the best film in the trilogy because I've seen it a hundred times, but it's a different thing to choose the best book in a series. Unfortunately, I've only read George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire books twice (and actually only the first three novels at this...

    N.B.: As with my review of A Clash of Kings, I will avoid spoilers for this book but not for previous books. We had a good thing going back in the beginning of A Game of Thrones. Robert Baratheon was King of Westeros, and while he wasn't a great guy, at least the kingdom was stable....

    Lo he terminado pero me he demorado mucho más de lo que esperaba. Como me suele pasar con los libros que me gustan mucho; intencionalmente atraso la lectura todo lo que puedo porque NO ME LOS QUIERO TERMINAR. No sé si será mi favorito de la saga, pero 'Tormenta de espadas' hasta ah...

    Tormenta de Espadas es un libro que me atrapó desde la primera página. Es increíble. Muy intenso, desgarrador y es imposible soltarlo. Sus 1200 carillas se pasan rapidísimo, y cuando lo terminás sentís un vacío inmenso. El enano se ha levantado de entre los muertos. Y mi...
