I started this book during the series because I was so captivated by the storyline.
I give it 3 stars, and wish I was able to determine to give it more. I think I liked it, but I'm not sure if it was because of show or the writing. Later on I get into his style and adapt to it, and truly enjoy it.
But if I had just picked this up randomly without influence and started reading, would I continue?
I think so...definitely...maybe....he kind of crushed my world when I realized George R.R. Martin wasn't afraid of who he killed off.
