In The Aftermath Of A Colossal Battle, The Future Of The Seven Kingdoms Hangs In The Balance Beset By Newly Emerging Threats From Every Direction In The East, Daenerys Targaryen, The Last Scion Of House Targaryen, Rules With Her Three Dragons As Queen Of A City Built On Dust And Death But Daenerys Has Thousands Of Enemies, And Many Have Set Out To Find Her As They Gather, One Young Man Embarks Upon His Own Quest For The Queen, With An Entirely Different Goal In MindFleeing From Westeros With A Price On His Head, Tyrion Lannister, Too, Is Making His Way To Daenerys But His Newest Allies In This Quest Are Not The Rag Tag Band They Seem, And At Their Heart Lies One Who Could Undo Daenerys S Claim To Westeros ForeverMeanwhile, To The North Lies The Mammoth Wall Of Ice And Stone A Structure Only As Strong As Those Guarding It There, Jon Snow, Th Lord Commander Of The Night S Watch, Will Face His Greatest Challenge For He Has Powerful Foes Not Only Within The Watch But Also Beyond, In The Land Of The Creatures Of IceFrom All Corners, Bitter Conflicts Reignite, Intimate Betrayals Are Perpetrated, And A Grand Cast Of Outlaws And Priests, Soldiers And Skinchangers, Nobles And Slaves, Will Face Seemingly Insurmountable Obstacles Some Will Fail, Others Will Grow In The Strength Of Darkness But In A Time Of Rising Restlessness, The Tides Of Destiny And Politics Will Lead Inevitably To The Greatest Dance Of All ENGLISH A Dance with Dragons ITALIANOThe fifth chapter of A song of ice and fire is yet another confirmation that George R.R Martin, in the field of the epic medieval fantasy, is the most worthy successor of J.R.R Tolkien The universe molded by Martin is described with a manic cure and with so many details that some readers are rather disappointed, accusing the work to be too long and or boring I do not agree Game of Thrones has become what we today know exactly thanks to the painful precision of the author in painting the houses and the mechanisms that regulate their everyday life The meticulous work done by Martin to draw up the genealogy of the main houses accompanying each volume recalls once again to Tolkien At the moment, my reading experience is so immersive that I would probably guess the noble family of any new character only from the description of his ethics and behaviors This means in my opinion that Martin has created a world, and he did it damn well. Life is not a ballad the bitter thought of Theon the turncoat , the outcast Geyjoy, beautifully contrasts with the fact that Game of Thrones is one of the most beautiful ballads that contemporary literature has given us.Lannister, Baratheon, Targaryen, Stark, Greyjoy, Bolton, Martell and many other houses continue their game for power constantly passing through alliances and betrayal, in which you can not trust anyone, not even your own children The only voice out of the chorus is that of Jon Snow, who is not able to make everybody around him understand that there will be no Iron Throne to conquer unless the dark presence beyond the Barrier, the Enemy of all, will not be overthrown Therefore, long life to George Martin I hope he will leave his mortal coil at least in one hundred years And not before finalizing A Song of Ice and Fire.Winter is coming Aye.Vote 8Quinto capitolo delle cronache del ghiaccio e del fuoco ed ennesima conferma che il successore pi degno di J.R.R Tolkien in materia di fantasy epico medievale George R.R Martin L universo plasmato da Martin descritto con una cura maniacale, con una dovizia di dettagli che fanno storcere il naso a molti lettori, che accusano l opera di essere lunga e o noiosa Non sono d accordo Il Trono di Spade diventato quello che conosciamo grazie alla morbosa precisione dell autore nel dipingere le casate e i meccanismi che ne regolano la vita quotidiana, pi che gli eventi Moltotolkienianoanche il lavoro svolto a stilare la genealogia delle principali casate a corredo di ciascun volume A questo punto della lettura, la mia esperienza stata talmente immersiva che riuscirei probabilmente ad indovinare la nobile famiglia di appartenenza di un qualsiasi nuovo personaggio solo dalla descrizione che l autore fa della sua etica e dei suoi comportamenti Per me questo significa che Martin ha creato un mondo, e l ha fatto bene. La vita non una ballata l amaro pensiero di Theon, il voltagabbana, il reietto Greyjoy Strano, perch Il Trono di Spade una delle pi belle ballate che la letteratura contemporanea ci ha donato.Lannister, Baratheon, Targaryen, Stark, Greyjoy, Bolton, Martell e tante altre casate continuano il loro gioco per il potere fatto di alleanze e tradimenti continui, in cui non ci si pu fidare di nessuno, nemmeno dei propri figli Unica voce fuori dal coro quella del povero Jon Snow, che non riesce a far capire a chi gli sta intorno che non ci sar nessun trono di spade per cui combattere se non verr arginata l oscura presenza oltre la Barriera, il Nemico di tutti Pertanto, lunga vita a George Martin, che possa abbandonare le sue spoglie mortali tra cent anni almeno E non prima di aver terminato il Trono di Spade.L inverno sta arrivando Aye.Voto 8 Warning The dragons in this review are named Giant and Spoilers I have tried to shield most of them from view, but don t get mad at me if one of them burns you With this book, it was bound to happen.This one was a real mudfight Between me, myself and I Me didn t get beyond SQUEEE for several hundred pages,Myself, while also trying to get over her grammatically awkward name, came up with the logical reasoning why this reaction was totally okay and based on something other than left over teenage hormonesand I glared at both of these two delusional fools and tried to figure out what was wrong with them.With these three in my head, along with GRRM s cast of thousands, it made for a very messy, crowded and contradictory reading experience It didn t take me a week to finish this book because it was long It took me a week to finish this book because the three people in my head needed to have it out after every chapter and big moment and would not shut up Needless to say this is going to be a bit of a mixed review So Let s start with the good stuff and get everybody settled in, shall we The Good So, as usual, GRRM s world is three dimensional or perhaps , I might ve lost track in one of the appendices , sprawling, dirty, pulsing and real It s a banner of spices, wine, and gardens in full bloom unfurling Opening these books is like walking into a forest and picking up a handful of dirt, letting it run through your fingers as you start on one of the hundred paths you know are waiting After six years, it was a thrill to let it envelope me, and at least at first, I was totally fine just letting myself be guided unresisting through the scenery.I also think that this book has a lot of really good things to say about politics, law, war, and the realities of being a ruler or a subject The first few chapters seemed like a treatise on how fragile the foundations of law are, and in particular international law of any kind GRRM shows everyone still scrambling from the disasters of Storm of Swords, trying to find some way to survive, after all existing law and order has disappeared The law is just another chimera is people resort to using outdated or foreign or superseded laws as weapons, and applying them wildly out of context because that s the only way they can justify themselves He s even better at talking about the wages of war and the realities of the aftermath Aside from his squirm inducing descriptions of battle wounds, entrails hanging in bushes, and flies crawling out of eyeballs which, if nothing else, will not let anyone reading forget what war is, GRRM is excellent at showing how the cycle of conflict never, never, ever ends We re five books and twenty years on from the rebellion that put the events of Game of Thrones in motion, and there are at least four wars going on and three generations fighting them The kids die and these old men linger on and on, cherishing plots within plots in hopes of revenge for events that occurred thirty years before And the thing is that they still matter, because they re still sitting there in their positions of power, long after the world is supposedly fighting about something else They will rear their heads and view spoiler stab the only good man in a viper s nest because he is threatening them with peace in a way that they have not planned hide spoiler Dear George R.R MartinHello My name is Inigo Montoya You may have killed my favorite character Prepare to die roll in dough as we continue buying your brick sized creationsThe above is what you d expect from a book titled A Dance with Dragons Disclaimer For the vast majority of this book s pages, none of it happens Yes, I have a few problems with this latest installment in GRRM s neverending magnum opus I have high standards for GRRM after ASOIAF 1 3 Hey, I read GRRM before I ever read Tolkien He showed me that it was okay to hold fantasy to high standards, for crying out loudAnd now I am disappointed sadface So allow me to use this review space for the gripe fest A thousand plus pages doorstopper this book can easily serve as a self defense weapon in a dark alley and yet the story advances by a few millimeters at best Nothing gets resolved The characters spend pages and pages going about mundane tasks, participating in endless drawn out conversations, pissing, eating, drinking, pissing, whoring, eating some , pissing again Is it supposed to make the story GRRM s trademark gritty and realistic Seriously, I have not encountered this much information about bodily functions and food outside of nephrology textbooks and Food Network This overload of description of landscapes, clothing, banquets, people, and food makes me snooze FILLER And it makes me wonder whether any editors AT ALL were involved in the creative processGRRM s trademark move is ending everything with anOMG CLIFFHANGERMaybe it stems from his TV writing days the notion that the readers will tune back in, despite nothing really happening in the entire episode, only if the hero is left hanging off the cliff at the end That s what this book felt like to me pages and pages of very little happening, of a narrative stagnation, of endless repetitive conversations And then, with a few chapters left to go BAM POW BOOM view spoiler Dragons are released Jon maybe dies Dany flies Drogon and meets Dothraki Aegon invades Jaime trades one cliffhanger for another hide spoiler Words are wind, says George R R Martin GRRM no less than 13 times in the latest installment of hisA Song of Ice and Fireseries In this incredibly windy tome there was very little advancement of the overall story and no resolution to any of the myriad plot threads Instead, most of the book followed characters travelling, yet in its 1,000 pages only one reaches his destination while the rest are still travelling.Words are wind, and GRRM is a windbag His predilection for overwriting is ridiculous an editor was desperately needed and sorely missed Had this book been properly edited, we might have been saved 129 appearances of GRRM s new favorite words leal, niello, neeps, nightsoil, serjeant, jape, and nuncle Or spared 151 repetitions of annoying phrases like Where do whores go You know nothing, Jon Snow.words are windit is knownmuch and little and lessmust needsa man growna woman grown and flowerednipples on a breastplateReek, rhymes with he she name was not wrongGRRM likes to flood the reader with lists Lists of dishes served at every meal, the exact order people entered and left rooms, a list of over 40 heraldic shields that used to hang in the Shieldhall of Castle Black view spoiler Hundreds of knights meant hundreds of shields Hawks and eagles, dragons and griffins, suns and stags, wolves and wyverns, manticores, bulls, trees and flowers, harps, spears, crabs and krakens, red lions and golden lions and chequy lions, owls, lambs, maids and mermen, stallions, stars, buckets and buckles, flayed men and hanged men and burning men, axes, longswords, turtles, unicorns, bears, quills, spiders and snakes and scorpions, and a hundred other heraldic charges had adorned the Shieldhall walls, blazoned in colors than any rainbow ever dreamed of. hide spoiler
