After the constant emotional beating of the last book, I was looking forward to a book others had told me was slower, less action-packed, and even a tad boring. I wouldn't agree with that assessment.

This book was interesting to me because it uses authentic vintage photographs as a starting point for the narrative. Riggs has culled some quite peculiar photographs for his story's inspiration, this is plain. The pictures are scattered throughout the story and used to great effect at times. It is an unusual device, to be sure, though I'm not certain the book lives up to the promise of the photos.

Holy shit, you guys. (You know, the two people that read this.) Everyone told me that this was their favorite. That I would be blown away. They were not lying. SPOILERS AHOY.

This is the second book in Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series. There will be spoilers in this review, as I can't really speak of the events in this book without referencing what occurred in the previous one.
