It was still a great book. Five, though seems to be bringing things in motion a bit more, which we readers already knew.
Im just pumped that the produces just signed on for two more years. That will get us through book 3, and once they get those two seasons moving I think the popularity will be at an all time high. (book 3 was a beast)
I've immensely enjoyed all the books. They are pretty much exactly the kind of book(s) I love (see: Dune series as well). I absolutely love the 1st person POV including, in detail, character thoughts. So fascinating to read -- way more than poorly written action which a lot of sci-fi/fantasy is.
Tyrion's inner dialog is a thing of beauty.
