Best Bit: Jamie and Brienne,
Worst Bit: Ohhhh ... the vivid writing on the red wedding (but this was also the very best).

This is definitely my favorite out of the first three books. There is so much that goes on and there was rarely a dull moment.

It took me ~2.5 months to read this entire book. It's SO long!! George RR Martin is absolutely amazing in the way that he is able to create these intricate worlds for so many different characters and have them wind around each other. I love every book in this series.

Not my favorite book from the series thus far, but not too far off from great. I don't know if I should attribute this to the fact that I read the first two books without watch the HBO show and picked up book three after finishing the HBO series until this point, or if it's because it was long and dragged at some points unlike the first two. Reader do NOT beware, still an awesome epic fantasy and GRRM does not disappoint! :)
