Re: A Song of Ice and Fire books
I'll be honest--I haven't gotten past GOT yet, though its certainly not because the book is unreadable. Martin's prose is fairly snappy. Your discussions are leading me to consider dropping the Malazan Book of the Fallen to get through the 5 ASOIAF novels.
Do any of you recommend Armageddon Rag?
"I defeated your uncle Victarion and his Iron Fleet off Fair Isle, the first time your father crowned himself. I held Storm's End against the power of the Reach for a year, and took Dragonstone from the Targaryens. I smashed Mance Rayder at the Wall, though he had twenty times my numbers. Tell me, turncloak, what battles has the Bastard of Bolton ever won that I should fear him?" - Stannis Baratheon
