I Have Teen Ears!?

I've had hearing loss in one of my ears since high school band (i played drums), so I thought there was no way I would hear this, but I heard it loud and clear. I'm not sure that it would be annoying enough to make me walk away from it.

My review

rating: 3 of 5 stars
I used to be into fantasy. A buddy suggested a few of the best series around and I chose George R. R. Martin's books. I really got into the characters in this book once I got half way through it. There were lots of plot lines, characters to admire and despise, and enough twists to keep you reading. It took me longer that I thought to get through it because of the detail in Martin's writing - VERY descriptive. In some spots, I found myself skipping through paragraphs to get to the meat of the story. While I enjoy a good epic, I was a bit peeved at the end looking back at how little had actually transpired and how many questions I now had. I'm not one to quit a book, so the thought of reading book two may keep me from cracking it.
