New people pop out of thin air to join the chaos and mayhem.
When you think a character is dead................ well they may not be.
So many other reviews have stated this so much better but after reading this book I just had to add my voice.
Someone needs to give GRRM a rope so he can tie this mess up and get some plot movement.
While I blame the last two book on the author - this is really a failure of the editor. An editor should be willing to tell even a strong author that cuts need to be made and areas tightened up. This is his Phantom Menace - pray there is no Attack of the Clones to follow.
Let's just cut to the chase, GRRM didn't "have to" create two books out of one, what he "had to" do was let his editing staff cut out the trenchers of filler and get back to the meat of a very, very good story. Alas, words aren't just wind, they're also cold, hard cash.
But GRRM expecting us to buy that these two books just "had" to be published separately is somewhat of an insult to the intelligence of his readership.
I love (LOVE) the first 3 books of the series. The 4th deals mostly with supporting characters but also introduces a lot of new characters and subplots. Book four wasn't necessarily poorly written but poorly constructed and I know GRRM was trying something different. I look at book 4 like I look at Terminator 3. It looks bad by itself but A DANCE WITH DRAGONS is like Terminator Salvation; so bad it makes the previous book/movie look good in comparison.
Sorry George, I guessed the fans forced you to rush this one out and I haven't given up on you.
