Reader Review: This isn't a bad book but it isn't a good book either. I mean, it looks (and I hope this is the ultimate reason) as a transition book. It happens so little within the whole book... It really seems as if George is trying to tie all the spare and distant stories and branches... A pity

A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE: BOOK FIVE
In the aftermath of a colossal battle, Daenerys Targaryen rules with her three dragons as queen of a city built on dust and death. But Daenerys has thousands of enemies, and many have set out to find her. Fleeing from Westeros with a price on his head, Tyrion Lannister, too, is making his way east—with new allies who may not be the ragtag band they seem. And in the frozen north, Jon Snow confronts creatures from beyond the Wall of ice and stone, and powerful foes from within the Night’s Watch. In a time of rising restlessness, the tides of destiny and politics lead a grand cast of outlaws and priests, soldiers and skinchangers, nobles and slaves, to the greatest dance of all.

A Dance with Dragons: A Song of Ice and Fire: Book Five
He drank his way across the narrow sea.
The ship was small and his cabin smaller, and the captain would not allow him abovedecks. The rocking of the deck beneath his feet made his stomach heave, and the wretched food they served him tasted even worse when retched back up. Besides, why did he need salt beef, hard cheese, and bread crawling with worms when he had wine to nourish him? It was red and sour, very strong. He sometimes heaved the wine up too, but there was always more. "The world is full of wine," he muttered in the dankness of his cabin. His father had never had any use for drunkards, but what did that matter? His father was dead. He ought to know; he'd killed him. A bolt in the belly, my lord, and all for you. If only I was better with a crossbow, I would have put it through that cock you made me with, you bloody bastard.
Below decks there was neither night nor day. Tyrion marked time by the comings and goings of the cabin boy who brought the meals he did not eat. The boy always brought a brush and bucket too, to clean up. "Is this Dornish wine?" Tyrion asked him once, as he pulled a stopper from a skin. "It reminds me of a certain snake I knew. A droll fellow, till a mountain fell on him."
The cabin boy did not answer. He was an ugly boy, though admittedly more comely than a certain dwarf with half a nose and a scar from eye to chin. "Have I offended you?" Tyrion asked the sullen, silent boy, as he was scrubbing. "Were you commanded not to talk to me? Or did some dwarf diddle your mother?"
That went unanswered too. This is pointless, he knew, but he must speak to

George RR Martin in typical form
Reviewer: A reader from UK
The rest of the book is wonderful as usual and as usual shows some great story development even for the un-likeable characters.
Sadly it seems that the next book will not be released for some while - I guess he'll *have* to when the TV episodes catch up - and needless to say, I can't wait!

The beginning of this 5th book is much like A Feast for Crows. It's a good transition from the melancholy feeling of that book and this one starts out in a similar tone. I'm hoping it bring in a bit of A Storm of Swords as it progresses. I would like to see more big action. So far it's wonderful and finally after 6 years it's was worth the wait!

I am once again suffering for more of the characters created by George Martin, such as Arya. When is Daenerys going to take back what was stolen from her family and return home to regain her throne. Her love life is also a hot mess, no wonder the girl ran off with her dragon. Honestly, being a Queen is hard work.
I hope it is a transition book
