a Feast for Crows

Posted on: February 28, 2008

finally! i finished reading A Storm of Swords, book three of George R. R. Martin’s excellent epic fantasy series. took me long enough. lol. just started on the first chapter of the fourth book, A Feast for Crows.

this series is packed with so many players that till now, i’ve yet to assimilate myself with all of them. most times, i would find myself able to imagine what the characters would look like as i get to know them better. not so here, some i may have a vague idea, but most are just another name with an intriguing story to tell.

big reason why i enjoy George R. R. Martin’s work is that he’s not afraid to kill of key players and weave an intricate plot for every single character in his stories, be them a low born nobody to a high born king. i’ll admit his stories continue to surpise me – chapter by chapter, as an unexpected twist takes place or a plot is revealed somewhat.

it’s just refreshing to read these books at my own pace, a chapter a day rather than from one sit through. that’s probably why i’m so slow in finishing the books in the first place. however, reading them slowly can be rewarding as it feels like i’m also growing up along with the characters.

expect half a year before i finish this one. maybe.
