A Dance with Dragons has been slow going. I’m about halfway through, but it’s also halfway through January, so progress has been slower than I expected. I had forgotten what an engaging writer GRRM is, but I also forgot how tedious certain viewpoints can be. In the case of this book, Davos chapters take the wind right out of my sails. I’ll groan, put it down to fold some laundry or something, and get sidetracked in other things for the rest of the night.
It’s not that his chapters are not as well written, because they certainly are. I can’t say exactly why, but for whatever reason, I’m just not interested in anything from his or anyone from the Iron Islands (ZZZzzzZZZ) perspective. That being said, there are some exciting things happening in the other chapters and I can’t wait to pick up with Tyrion tonight.
While we’re on the subject, Game of Thrones season 4 trailer was released this weekend. If you’re a fan, you were all over this on Sunday, but it’s worth another viewing (or dozen). Other than dragons (obviously), I think I’m most excited to see Oberyn Martell–see the 1:05 to 1:10 marks. “Lannisters aren’t the only ones who pay their debts.” Chills! Of all the places in Westeros, Dorne is my favorite one to read about, so I’m looking forward to seeing it realized on the screen.
What are you hoping to see in Season 4?
