Every book I read George R. R. Martin I get angrier with him. I know you have all the powers to create and finish their characters, but, please, Stop creating your readers in the hope of a fairytale and end all this fantastic story that we created in the head in a single turn sheet!
He had already said in previous reviews of Song of Ice and Fire ever fall in love with a character, as it can end up being excluded from the story at the height of events. Who ever came up here, book 5 these Chronicles, know very well what I'm talking, but, if you have never read any book of this saga yet, would like “Lobo Mau” died of heart attack when you are invading the home of granny! Understood!? All the tension of seeing the wolf coming and attacking the resident ends with the character “main” and you wonder: and now!?
It is, George Martin is well and we can not think differently. Make sure he will never disappoint about it. It's amazing how he can develop a character during 5 books and just kill him in the most banal way in the last pages, leaving you with anger at having to throw away all the history that has formed in your mind.
After venting session, let's talk about the book itself.
Do not know about you, but feel difficulty remembering all the details of this work of 864 pages, in order to summarize them here briefly. Martin loves to write great books, but do not feel tiresome narrative, although take considerable time to complete the reading.
In this fifth book, A Dance with Dragons, Martin did not disappoint their fans and kills some main characters just to not lose the habit. Like I always do, choose a main character for book, because I feel that more focus was given by the author. In this fifth volume Daenerys Targaryen elect, the mother of dragons, as the character that received the most focus in this adventure.
Daenerys was the most developed in this volume, passing in the anguish of the decision to return to Westeros and the Seven Kingdoms regain, or stay in Distant Lands and take care of your people free. Not to mention the problem that is administered three dragons the size of rhinos living in a populous city and plenty of food for human flesh.
There was this time that Daenerys died (almost), but certainly the author is letting stories be developed in the minds of the readers to, in the next book, bring them to reality and show that in the world of Westeros, despite having dragons and fantastic creatures, life is so hard and perishable as it is in the real world. I'm pretty sure she'll die!!!!
But the book is not only her. The fight for the kingdom still. The “king” Stannis Baratheon “read more” their struggle in search of followers to his army to reconquer the Seven Kingdoms, that is rightfully yours (every king thinks so, like everyone stuck it says innocent).
The Lannisters are now struggling to get inside the house to keep the reign of Tommen-product-of-incest-Baratheon(Lannister), threatened by the military might of the house Tyrell, his beautiful and innocent wife Margaery. After all, as the law of the jungle, always the strongest survives. Beyond this simple little problem, Jaime Lannister alone mysteriously disappears with stronger / ugly women of the United, likely to meet his death, Tyrion is and is “fun” as fugitive slave-clown-in Distant Lands.
E casa Arya Stark? Where is? Who is? It's alive? Blind? Deaf? I'm afraid to love me more for this character and suffer when violently murdered by a beggar outside any context. Many will be angry if this happens. Certainly!
Sansa and Littlefinger? Forget, are not cited in this book. On the one hand it is good to, since it was said that they died!
Geroge R. R. Martin
For me, the character of the whole story that makes me uneasy is the author's own. According to the schedule, the Song of Ice and Fire saga will have seven volumes, in other words, both still need to be published and, anyone who has seen photos, knows he is not a very young person.
Born in 20 September 1948, 65 years of age and working hard in producing the homonymous TV series from HBO, I know time will not finish writing this saga.
I hope he lives up to the 150 years and get their jobs done well before that, so that his fans continue traveling in their world and living between the boundary of passion and hatred that we learn to love these five books published.
