"Borrowed this from a friend at his suggestion and was really impressed. Really well written, I think. The second volume (_Sword and Citadel_) isn't quite as good, but you can't exactly stop halfway through."
"This is what I'm reading now. I'm on Feast for Crows. I picked it up because of an extremely hilarious wall calendar that I'll tell you about sometime. Turns out it's the story that the new HBO series is based on.
It's pretty brutal, but good. The reviews pretty much say it all."
