First: WHAT THE FUCK WAS UP WITH THAT EPILOGUE, YO? HELLA RAD.
This book was so amazing. The best in the series so far I would have to say. The character development is believable (and amazing, so amazingly good...). Especially Sams character development is so good, I'm left in awe of George R.R. Martin for this fat, cowardly character who grows so much throughout this book. The plot is good and thick, and even better and more fleshed out than the previous books. I love the wildling culture.
I don't know what to say. I'm horrible at reviewing sequels to books.
I do know that Melissandre (The Red Priestess or whatever) is the most horribly annoying character I've ever had the unfortunate luck to read about. Talk about pushing her religion on everyone else. What the actual f is her problem? Stop breathing, please.
