*sigh* What a disappointing book. I certainly liked parts of it quite a bit, and I love the series as a whole, but each book should feel like a complete story in itself. This doesn't. At all. Spinning wheels and treading water, maybe moving slightly forward but really getting nowhere for 1000 pages. There is no real climax. There is no arc or resolution of any kind. It reads like the middle section of a larger novel, which I guess is what it is...but that isn't how I like books that are part of a larger series to read. I want one complete, cohesive story that is in essence part of a larger one. That is how the first 3 ASOIAF novels worked, but Martin is losing sight of that, which I think is unfortunate.
