I'd recommend a 7 inch tablet or a Kindle. Trust me you'd appreciate it. Been reading books more and comics on my Nexus 7.

Anyone have the same problem with ADWD that I have? So much is going on that I only read a chapter every few days. Feels like my head will explode... Great book tho

Yeah, but you get used to keeping track of everything since you're already on book 5. These books have been good memory exercise but so much has gone on that I forget stuff.

My main problem with ADWD was the first 2/3 of the book just dragged on (pun intended). I didn't enjoy reading it as much as the other books ohwell.gif.

I agree with the dragging.

I need the actual book in my hand. Just isn't the same reading on a tablet or phone.

AdWD was pretty painful at first. certain characters got me through the beginning but the middle and end picked up extremely well

I prefer reading from a physical book as well. I can just throw it in my bag or on a table and not be as cautious if it were my tablet. No one really steals reading books either.

I thought AFFC was way worse than ADWD. ADWD actually made up for how slow AFFC was. I just think there were too many POV characters.

AFFC was way to slow. I only enjoyed 2 characters.

Real books FTW

Why they have to cast such a cute actress for Missandei embarassed.gif? I'm guessing they made her older or i'm gonna sound like a dirty, old man.

I'm just going to watch a lot of the G.o.T. youtube channel until the season starts.
post #1758 of 1779
I've been like a machine... I'm halfway thru book 5. I can't wait to jump on some asoiaf message boards and not be nervous.

And I must cast my vote for book 4 being the weakest of the bunch. Was not even in the vicinity of the characters I wanted to know what was going on with.

I felt the same minus your last one. The last person you mentioned was only good because of the people around him. But I certainly could've done without reading it.

I'm reading The Hedge Knight now. arghhhh I need more Game of throne books.
dare I say screw the show just write the books.

I see AFFC and ADWD as 1 big *** book. Just crazy how every thing is turning out. Just wish Asha in the show was crazy hot and sexy cause that's how I read her pimp.gif

eh....im glad they make the characters not too hot, it adds to the realism. I mean Asha is a tomboy pirate who spend most of her time on ships and doesnt shower, she should look the part.

when asha was explained in the book. it was like Theon dropped everything to try and talk to her because she was so beautiful. i dont think the one on the show is a terrible misrepresentation. but when we first saw her they couldve fixed her up bette

How is The Hedge Knight? I need stuff to read. Someone needs to kidnap the old man and lock him up until he finishes editing the next book. He makes so many damn changes when he starts the editing process.
post #1764 of 1779
lol sorry it was 3 am and I was on my phone.
im going to edit it.


the hedge knight is good so far. im actually reading the graphic novel. ill read the full novella later. which can be found in dream songs vol.2

The only negative about reading the books is not getting mind and eye effed when shocking things happen on the show.

What happened to Ned in season one probably had millions of people going eek.giffrown.gif at the same time, which is awesome.

I feel like I have to watch the final episodes of Season 2 to catch up, it's been so long since it's been on. Looking forward to March 31st, though.
I'm amused by the simplicity of this game. Bring me the finest meats and cheeses in all the land

I wonder how different season 3 is going to be from the book.
post #1770 of 1779
I hope not much. There's so much detail that comes up and so much stuff to cover, I'm hoping the fact that they are splitting it into two seasons allows them to do that.
