Top critical review
November 21, 2018
I knew this was not going to be the next installment in the Song of Ice and Fire series, however, I did not realize that it is written like an 'old school history book', with names, places and events coming at you like water from a fire hose. I barely made it to 5% and recognized I was forcing myself to read it; and I doubt I will ever open it again. I sense that readers will either love it or hate it, with little middle ground. I am writing this review as a warning to others that you understand what it is before you buy it. I didn't and wish I hadn't wasted my money. If it's what you are looking for, then go for it.
