About the Book
“When you tear out a man's tongue, you are not proving him a liar, you're only telling the world that you fear what he might say.”
Holy fecking shit. This book made me need to listen to the Moana soundtrack 500 times in a row just so I could remember what happiness is like.
One thing I very much appreciate is how there is no obvious “good guy”. I do not have a single side I am cheering for, because they’re all fecking crazy. But also, they have some legit reasons for their crazy-ass actions.
Daenerys, Tyrion, and Arya are my favorites on the different sides of the war right now. And, based on how horrible my choices are with favorite characters, something awful will happen to at least one of them. Sorry if I jinxed them! It doesn’t count if it’s already written, right?
This story is a great example of how to do a book with infinity million characters, but in a way that they’re all distinguishable. I haven’t felt like I was lost once, and that is important to me.
Although I did really like it, I felt like it dragged around too often. For that reason I am dropping a star.
