Song of Ice and Fire Series

Anyone read these? I've just started the second book 'A clash of kings' and the series is excellent so far.

I love these books (except maybe Feast). They're so gritty. And no damn elves. That said, it's hard to talk about them without spoilers...

I quite like the complex political machinations the plot seems to rest on. It's nice after reading alot of crap fantasy to read some books where the plot has been well planned out.

Then again, I never plan any of my stuff properly.

Why did you not like feast.... (if you can say without spoilers)

Feast was okay, but it featured a lot of new characters, and it didn't really include the ones I was most invested in really. Also, some of the plot twists are just bullshit.

Yeah, I like the complexity of it. He's made a world that feels really deep. Another thing I like is that it for the most part doesn't really follow a traditional plot line. You don't know what's going to happen next, and no one has plot armor (except maybe Jon and Dany). It feels a bit more real that way.

Yeah when ahem an 'important character' died at the end of Game of Thrones I was literally stunned. I totally didn't expect it and it made the whole plot feel a lot more serious and all the characters feel a lot less safe.
