    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

    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 Lan

    Dark Wings, Dark Words This is probably the most less action book in the series by far But by the end, a lot is happening Steel and Snow is the first half of A Storm of Swords, the third volume in the series So its end is just the middle of the book I am not going to deny, the story line starts out really boring and slow paced, but it will pick up its pace soon enough George R.R Martin said in a note at the beginnin

    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.
