This is my 3rd time reading this book so I'm not going to do a proper review. You either know about asoiaf, or the Tv show Game of Thrones unless you live under a rock somewhere. Maybe you love it, maybe you hate it, maybe are completely indifferent. I clearly love it. To an obessive point. It's all things I've ever wanted or needed in a book series. I'll actually be a little sad to see the series end. If it evers ends lol.
