Yes, it was good and I will definitely read on....but what's with the constant pants-jizzing about it? Mr. Martin uses classical themes and characters, builds up the tension step by step by step and then lets all hell break loose at the last 150 pages. As I said, very good plot, and he knows how to write, but SUE ME, it wasn't as breathtaking as everybody claims. I will be more impressed if the second volume continues with the "speed" that the first one ended with. If he starts all over again, then - well, then there's that. Don't spoil anything, please.
It's indeed hard to say why I love the books so much. Probably because it's impossible to predict certain things, which makes it different than most of the genre's literature.
I was thinking of opening a topic just about The Song of Ice and Fire series - with spoilers - to discuss some theories about what happens later in the books. Because my mind will explode, damnit.
Anyone has a problem with that (only one book series to get its topic)? Anyone in for it?
