    One thought on “A Storm of Swords: Steel and Snow

    1. Night falls for all of us in the end, and too soon for some Part 1 ofA Storm of Swordswas less exciting than it s companions I grew tired of most of the character s plot lines and couldn t get enough of others I especially love that we finally get introduced to the Tyrells and the Dornish people They definitely belong to my favourite characters and make all the events in King s Landing even exciting.While I really like Brienne I don t care much for yet another long journey with unexpected parts [...]

    2. I m seeing a lot of negative reviews about this book people complaining about a slow story line and a ridiculously cruel world where anyone can be killed off without a second thought My response is if you want a quick, happy clappy mushy book, you need to get yourself to the romance section Or even better, the young adult section My biggest pet peeve in books is feeling that characters are safe I want people to die I want people to be miserable It tells me that the author is serious and that shi [...]

    3. Better than the last book, not as good as the first Altogether an interesting story, but the pace of the series is very slow and if GRRM mentions one banner sigil, I m gonna lose it

    4. The world grows a little darker each day Still plowing my way through A Song of Ice and Fire Book 3 part 1 completed The plots thicken and intermix, a rising host of new characters to cause a stir are introduced and the battles between kings rages on Catelyn with Robb the King in the North fighting battle after battle Reeling from the knowledge concerning Winterfell and her two youngest sons, she makes a reckless decision that she hopes will protect her two daughters It was different when there [...]

    6. OKAY SO I M DONE PART 1 I feel a little intimidated since this is, um, a 600 page part one Oh gosh What have I done by getting so embroiled in this series THERE IS NO ESCAPE.But I m supposed to be reviewing this Right Let s get on with it A Storm of Swords so far has been waaaay better than A Clash of Kings It s faster More action More character development There haven t been many surprising or awful deaths at least of the main characters And some of the barely introduced characters of the last [...]

    7. There is no way I would ever not love any of A Song of Ice and Fire s book Once I got obsessed with the first book and love the characters with all my heart, it will goes the same for all its successor But I have to admit that Part 1 of A Storm of Swords is a bit of slow paced even for a High Fantasy There are a lot of unnecessary chapters in which the POV dragged in pointless story line, and encounter all these bunch of insignificant characters Apart from that, this book is fantastic, those cha [...]

    8. I enjoy this book What an awesome book Alhamdulillah I don t really like the scenes especially sex scenes because I feel there are quite lots of sex scenes in this book I think I might be unexpected to see these scenes are happening in the first part of A Storm of Swords.This book grabs my attention from the start to the end I am hooked in A Song of Ice and Fire series.

    9. George R R Martin had fun with this instalment the evidence is in the dialogue and actions of the characters who manage to find moments of jocularity amidst the chaos of war Tyrion Lannister is his usual swashbuckling self with a sharper sense of violence honed through bloody battle and everyday dealing with his treacherous domesticated life Robb Stark breaks an oath and gains comfort of the flesh a choice sure to have ramifications on the war effort While King Joffrey continues to echo the sent [...]

    10. Westeros is still in the grip of the War Joffrey Baratheon holds the Iron Throne, but Robb Stark, Balon Greyjoy and Stannis Baratheon, jostle for their claim with blood and steel Catelyn Stark has released Jaime Lannister as an exchange for her daughters, Sansa and Arya, who she still believes are at King s Landing Having been victorious until now, Robb Stark suffers setbacks, and learns that Winterfell has been taken, and his other brothers are now presumed dead.In the North the Wildlings are m [...]

    11. It is a good book Rationally I know this And I did enjoy it There are some great characters, great stories and great writing It s a very imaginative and epic tale And it has tons of things I love, like dragons and sword fighting and magic and a huge wall of ice AND WILDLINGS Rationally I know this.But My emotional response Too many characters Too many storylines Too many things happening in different places AHHH My poor head The things is, I care about too few of the PoV characters in these book [...]

    12.

    13. Thanks to my friends I need to appreciate their works for trying to spoil me They watched the series and I m planning to watch it after reading the books So you know now, how they threatened to fire the spoilers at me Sometimes I would be so shocked that I need to know what will happen next immediately as the characters have alternate POVs we won t know until their next In that case, I will ask them, they will explain so nicely and when I tried to relieve my breath in sigh they would drop the sp [...]

    14. After finishing A Clash Of Kings I couldn t contain myself I had to pick up the first part in The Song of Ice and Fire series immediately And I finished this bad boy in seven days I loved A Clash Of Kings, but o my god I can t even begin to explain how much shit goes down in this first volume of the third book A Storm of Swords is split in two books in most editions at least , namely Steel and Snow and Blood and Gold The night is dark and full of terrors, the day bright and beautiful and full of [...]

    15. New favorite character Queen of Thorns Other than that, I thought this book was the worst entry so far It was so full of characters complaining I m giving a hard side eye to Sam Davos, especially chapters that didn t really go anywhere, plot wise Plus, Martin s sex scenes have gone beyond tiresome have become completely laughable Dude, where s my male gaze Oh, it s lingering on Ygritte s Brienne s Shae s teats I will say, howevs, that I m liking what Martin is doing with ability injury If mascul [...]

    19. In which the waters are muddied even further as the Seven Kingdoms descend into chaos following the battles surrounding Kings Landing, all the while blissfully unheeding of the threats approaching from beyond the Wall and beyond the seaAs people sworn to either side do horrific things to one another, to muddy things even further we are now given chapters from Jaime Lannister s point of view thus humanising him a little Dammit, I want to be free to hate him like a cartoon villain Adding to the mo [...]

    21. Let s not deny it George R R Martin is a bloody good author But he s super confusing Why did he kill Renly with a shadow, but the shadow was born afterwards in a cave Did Melisandre gave birth to two shadows And who are the Dothrakis in Westeros In the chapter about Arya, after Lord Beric was slayn by the Hound Two of the Dothraki managed to regain their horses and flee P 564 I did not have a clue what this was about But in my opinion the major mistake the author made was making Robb to one of t [...]

    24. NOTE When reviewing these books, I will not allow my love of the show to influence the score if the show is ever mentioned, it will not be for the purpose of comparison Due to A Storm of Swords colossal size, the book is split into two parts in the UK Steel and Snow , and Blood and Gold Because of this, I decided it was unfair to review this book as a complete experience and will instead review it in the same way I might answer the question So how is it so far , as I m technically only halfway t [...]
