    Song of Ice and Fire Books 1-3 were amazing, and currently season 4 is ending book 3. Books 4-5 were just average in comparison. I have faith in the HBO show more than George in finishing this series, and doing a better job. It certainly doesn't look like he will finish the book series before the TV series is over.


    I've actually read every George Martin novel (or novel he has participated in). NOT all his short stories of which there are many. Tuf Traveling, Hunter's Run, Dying of the Light are all really good sci-fi novels. Windhaven may be my favorite and it was written with his wife at the time; more fantasy but still some sci-fi elements. The Armageddon Rag is a recommend to Cruds, it's a rock and roll murder mystery basically, was really good. Fevre Dream was vampires circa mid 1800s America so more fantasy as well.

    ALL are great to exceptional imo and would recommend all of them. All have similar characteristics to Song of Ice and Fire where characters are not good and evil but more shades of gray with their own interests. Strong characters in each book. Would rank as Windhaven, Fevre Dream, Tuf Traveling, Hunter's Run, Armagedon Rag, then Dying of the Light.

    Basically I wasn't a fan of Dying of the Light's ending. Which is actually what got me reading all his other novels, I wanted to see how he finished his other stories as a curiosity regarding how well he would finish a Song of Fire and Ice (game of thrones).

    Hate the recasting of Daario. First guy's deliver was smooth and charming, the new guy is awkward and corny.
