ive heard that feast and adwd could easily be half the length they are. and i have to agree, like i dont remember anything ever happening. and some of thats the character (bran) but it was also the writing.
so much of it is characters going places and things happening while they try to go to places but none of those things feel as important to the plot right now? maybe after winds of winter happens i’ll look back and kick myself because of course it had to happen like that but right now, for example in bran’s case it just reads as pointless walking around, which is only made worse by how little i care about the character.
i kinda feel like that about dany rulling meereen as well because like the story core takes place in westeros and meereen doesn’t really seem that important but at least dany is a much more interesting narrator than bran (for me, at least)
alright fuck it i’m re-reading a song of ice and fires anyone wanna join me?
i think that was my main issue, i was only really invested in theon tbh. also story wise feast and adwd dont compare to asos, at least if you ask me
i think the problem with both feast and most of adwd is that so much of it is setting up plot for the winds of winter and getting characters where they need to be for the story to progress and not actually that much story progressing and it just drags on and on (probably why i hate bran chapters so much). around 2/3 of the way in on adwd the story catches up with feast and it resumes normal flow (rather than the silly geographical separation) and it gets so much easier to read.
oh man i still havent finished adwd and ive had it for a year. i just cannot get into that one for some reason
i know the feeling man like i read the first four books in like two weeks but then i took about a year to finish adwd. i think it was mostly b/c most my favorite characters weren’t in it and the few ones that were had storylines i really didn’t care that much about (let me tell you about all the fucks i give about meereen) and i am SO BORED by all things stannis and bran
ugh but someone come talk song of ice and fire theories to meeeee
i have finally finished a dance with dragons and now tyrion is officially my least favorite lannister and i have no idea how this happened
