I enjoyed this read as I have most of the Song of Fire & Ice series, but I did miss knowing what was going on outside of Westeros.
Having said that, this book started more slowly than the other novels. I did like how female dominated it was. As Cersei, Arya, Sansa, Brienne, and other female characters stories were told. It did make me miss Danerys though. At least there was Jaime who has become one of my favourite characters.
The ending was less cliffhanger-y than the previous books probably because the other half of the book is in Book Five.
In other news, I’m rather proud that I read this in one day. I’ve definitely gotten back into my reading groove with all these good books in the new year.

ONE DAY! How’d you read it in one day? I read fast and I don’t think I could’ve read this in one day even if it was one of the shorter ones! I’m glad you’re enjoying them. I hope to re-read them before the next book comes out (allegedly) next year.
Hi Geoff! I basically read from morning to evening only stopping for food, etc. It was a snow day and I wasn’t feeling well. I had set my mind to finishing this book by the end of the weekend. The second half went by quicker than the first though. Like you, I’m a fast reader and I think you could have done it too if you did absolutely nothing that day. 😉 Cheers.
