A Storm of Swords | A Series Killer

A Storm of Swords (A Song of Ice and Fire, #3)A Storm of Swords by George R.R. Martin

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Well, this book killed my love affair with “The Game of Thrones” series–the books, not the TV show. Ponderously long, repetitious, and at times downright dull, I kept slogging on with the faith in others who told me the book would pick up in the second half. I made it through (skimming my way to the end) and gratefully shut the book, thinking, “that’s it for me.”

From here on out, I’ll wait for the HBO series to reveal further chapters in the Thrones saga. Filmmakers will entertain me without wasting my time, cutting down on the minutia of R.R. Martin’s fantasy world and surely avoiding the tediousness that made me wonder if the author was paid by the page.
