xoxoxoe, #30, A Storm of Swords, by George R. R. Martin, #CBR3

Here is an excerpt from my review of my #30 book, A Storm of Swords, by George R. R. Martin, on my blog, xoxoxo e:

"You know nothing Jon Snow"

I am continuing to enjoy George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series. A Storm of Swords is the third book, and as brilliant as the first two were, this one is even better. Martin manages to foreshadow without being obvious, so even if you guess an upcoming plot twist correctly, you don’t feel superior or bored, but just caught up in the overwhelming inevitability of how his characters’ lives and fates are intertwined. Throughout the book Martin has readers on their toes. Not knowing what is coming on the next page, he is daring you to turn it, even if you are afraid that a favorite character might do something stupid or die. But the story and the compelling characters are irresistible, even when you know that in Westeros and in Martin’s books no one is safe.
