Comments A Storm of Swords. 1: Steel and Snow

  • Kai

    "Night falls for all of us in the end, and too soon for some.”Part 1 ofA Storm of Swordswas less exciting than it's companions. I grew tired of most of the character's plot lines and couldn't get enough of others. I especially love that we finally get introduced to the Tyrells and the Dornish people. They definitely belong to my favourite characters and make all the events in King's Landing even more exciting.While I really like Brienne I don't care much for yet another long journey with unexp [...]

    I'm seeing a lot of negative reviews about this book: people complaining about a slow story line and a ridiculously cruel world where anyone can be killed off without a second thought. My response is: if you want a quick, happy clappy mushy book, you need to get yourself to the romance section. Or even better, the young adult section. My biggest pet peeve in books is feeling that characters are safe. I want people to die. I want people to be miserable. It tells me that the author is serious and [...]


  • Kristin

    Better than the last book, not as good as the first. Altogether an interesting story, but the pace of the series is very slow and if GRRM mentions one more banner/sigil, I'm gonna lose it

    "The world grows a little darker each day."Still plowing my way through A Song of Ice and Fire! Book 3 part 1 completed! The plots thicken and intermix, a rising host of new characters to cause a stir are introduced and the battles between kings rages on! Catelyn: with Robb - the King in the North fighting battle after battle. Reeling from the knowledge concerning Winterfell and her two youngest sons, she makes a reckless decision that she hopes will protect her two daughters. "It was different [...]

    OKAY SO I'M DONE PART 1!! I feel a little intimidated since this is, um, a 600-page part one. Oh gosh. What have I done by getting so embroiled in this series?! THERE IS NO ESCAPE.But I'm supposed to be reviewing this. Right. Let's get on with it. A Storm of Swords (so far) has been waaaay better than A Clash of Kings. It's faster! More action! More character development! There haven't been many surprising or awful deaths (at least of the main characters). And some of the barely-introduced-chara [...]

    There is no way I would ever not love any of A Song of Ice and Fire 's book. Once I got obsessed with the first book and love the characters with all my heart, it will goes the same for all its successor. But I have to admit that Part 1 of A Storm of Swords is a bit of slow paced even for a High Fantasy. There are a lot of unnecessary chapters in which the POV dragged in pointless story line, and encounter all these bunch of insignificant characters. Apart from that, this book is fantastic, thos [...]


  • Hasham Rasool

    I enjoy this book. What an awesome book! Alhamdulillah. I don't really like the scenes especially sex scenes because I feel there are quite lots of sex scenes in this book. I think I might be unexpected to see these scenes are happening in the first part of A Storm of Swords.This book grabs my attention from the start to the end. I am hooked in A Song of Ice and Fire series.


  • Νόρα

    Εξαιρετική πλοκή,μοναδικοί χαρακτήρες,υπέροχες εικόνες,πάρα πολύ δράση και διάσπαρτες ανατροπές που κρατούν το ενδιαφέρον αμείωτο και την αδρεναλίνη συνεχώς σε ψηλά επίπεδα.Ζοφερό και πιο σκοτεινό από τα προηγούμενα.Σε αυτό τον τόμο κυριαρχεί αυτή η αίσθηση του πεπρωμέν [...]


  • Josh

    George R R Martin had fun with this instalment – the evidence is in the dialogue and actions of the characters who manage to find moments of jocularity amidst the chaos of war. Tyrion Lannister is his usual swashbuckling self with a sharper sense of violence honed through bloody battle and everyday dealing with his treacherous domesticated life. Robb Stark breaks an oath and gains comfort of the flesh – a choice sure to have ramifications on the war effort. While King Joffrey continues to ec [...]

    Westeros is still in the grip of the War. Joffrey Baratheon holds the Iron Throne, but Robb Stark, Balon Greyjoy and Stannis Baratheon, jostle for their claim with blood and steel. Catelyn Stark has released Jaime Lannister as an exchange for her daughters, Sansa and Arya, who she still believes are at King's Landing. Having been victorious until now, Robb Stark suffers setbacks, and learns that Winterfell has been taken, and his other brothers are now presumed dead.In the North the Wildlings ar [...]

    *4.5 stars*EPIC AS FUCK.Can't wait to read part two!


  • Evripidis Gousiaris

    Δεν ξέρω αν είναι όντως τόσο ωραίο ή αν οφείλεται στο ότι είμαι λίγο "nerd" αλλά ανυπομονώ για την συνέχεια :)


  • Kirstine

    It is a good book. Rationally I know this. And I did enjoy it. There are some great characters, great stories and great writing. It's a very imaginative and epic tale. And it has tons of things I love, like dragons and sword fighting and magic and a huge wall of ice AND WILDLINGS. Rationally I know this.But My emotional response?Too many characters. Too many storylines. Too many things happening in different places. AHHH. My poor head. The things is, I care about too few of the PoV characters in [...]

    Yes yes yes! Oh how I love this series!

    A Storm of Sword: Steel and Snow (Part One) – George R.R. Martin “Martin has captured the imagination of millions.” - GuardianThe above quote which is featured on the front of the book holds so so true. George R.R. Martin is sheer brilliance when it comes to creating an exciting world for readers. Even now, after reading over 2,000 pages of A Song of Ice and Fire, George R.R. Martin is adding details that deepen our knowledge of the land, the history and the people of this spectacular worl [...]


  • Janani

    Thanks to my friends. I need to appreciate their works for trying to spoil me. They watched the series and I'm planning to watch it after reading the books. So you know now, how they threatened to fire the spoilers at me. Sometimes I would be so shocked that I need to know what will happen next immediately as the characters have alternate POVs we won't know until their next. In that case, I will ask them, they will explain so nicely and when I tried to relieve my breath in sigh they would drop t [...]

    After finishing A Clash Of Kings I couldn't contain myself: I had to pick up the first part in The Song of Ice and Fire-series immediately. And I finished this bad boy in seven days. I loved A Clash Of Kings, but o my god. I can't even begin to explain how much shit goes down in this first volume of the third book (A Storm of Swords is split in two books (in most editions at least), namely: Steel and Snow and Blood and Gold). "The night is dark and full of terrors, the day bright and beautiful a [...]


  • Gregory

    New favorite character: Queen of Thorns. Other than that, I thought this book was the worst entry so far. It was so full of characters complaining (I'm giving a hard side-eye to Sam & Davos, especially) & chapters that didn't really go anywhere, plot-wise. Plus, Martin's sex scenes have gone beyond tiresome & have become completely laughable. Dude, where's my male gaze? Oh, it's lingering on Ygritte's/Brienne's/Shae's "teats."I will say, howevs, that I'm liking what Martin is doing w [...]


  • Célia

    "A Tormenta de Espadas" é a primeira parte do original "A Storm of Swords", geralmente considerado o melhor volume publicado até agora das Crónicas de Gelo e Fogo, da autoria de George R.R. Martin. Apesar de ainda só ter lido metade (do livro original), posso dizer que de todos os volumes lidos até agora este foi o meu preferido. O motivo para isto é que, para além de todos os aspectos positivos presentes nos volumes anteriores, este livro é consistente no que diz respeito ao interesse g [...]

    George R.R.Martin ist einfach ein Meister seines Fach und schreibt so bildgewaltig!!!Der Kampf um die Krone geht weiter In diesem Teil der Reihe, Band 5, werden wieder Schlachten geschlagen und Kämpfe vernab der Mauer geführt. Jon Schnee ist weit weg der Mauer und muss wichtige Entscheidungen für sich und seine Familie/Brüder treffen. Jaime Lennister kommen wir näher und erleben große Überraschungen. Daenerys kommt langsam näher an Westeros. Die größte Wendung kommt rund um Tyrion. Ich [...]

    In which the waters are muddied even further as the Seven Kingdoms descend into chaos following the battles surrounding Kings Landing, all the while blissfully unheeding of the threats approaching from beyond the Wall and beyond the seaAs people sworn to either side do horrific things to one another, to muddy things even further we are now given chapters from Jaime Lannister's point of view thus humanising him a little. Dammit, I want to be free to hate him like a cartoon villain! Adding to the [...]


  • Carmo

    Comecei este livro com grande expectativa e terminei-o já a acusar algum cansaço. A guerra fez uma pausa no campo de batalha mas as estratégias continuam nos salões nobres. Forjam-se alianças e casamentos para consolidar o poder, casamentos tão estapafúrdios, que não admira que houvesse tantos bastardos.Gostei da evolução da história em torno da Daenerys e pouco mais. Demasiadas personagens, não vou (nem sequer tento) fixar tantos nomes e tenho dúvidas se irão ter um papel relevant [...]

    The first book is still my favorite one:(

    THIS WAS EPICCCC! I cannot wait to read the next one.


  • Laura

    Let's not deny it. George R. R. Martin is a bloody good author. But he's super confusing! Why did he kill Renly with a shadow, but the shadow was born afterwards in a cave? Did Melisandre gave birth to two shadows? And who are the Dothrakis in Westeros? In the chapter about Arya, after Lord Beric was "slayn" by the Hound: "Two of the Dothraki managed to regain their horses and flee" (P. 564) I did not have a clue what this was about! But in my opinion the major mistake the author made was making [...]

    "Kılıçların Fırtınası" ile birlikte emin olduğum bir şey varsa; o da 'Game of Thrones'un dizi olarak yakaladığı popülaritenin kitap için bir olumsuzluk yarattığı ve sonrasında da yaratacağıdır. Dizi, kitabı olduğundan daha hafif gösteriyor. Karşılaştırmalı bir yorum yapmıyorum, yanlış anlaşılmasın. Ortada ciddi hacme sahip bir seri var ve karşılığında da 8 sezonluk bir dizi. Okumanın külfetine girmeden diziyi izlemeyi tercih eden çoğunluğun nüfuzu; ' [...]


  • Adam Woodward

    NOTE: When reviewing these books, I will not allow my love of the show to influence the score; if the show is ever mentioned, it will not be for the purpose of comparison. Due to 'A Storm of Swords' colossal size, the book is split into two parts in the UK: 'Steel and Snow', and 'Blood and Gold'. Because of this, I decided it was unfair to review this book as a complete experience and will instead review it in the same way I might answer the question "So how is it so far?", as I'm technically on [...]
