A Storm of Swords (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 3)

A Storm of Swords (A Song of Ice and Fire, #3)A Storm of Swords by George R.R. Martin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The best of the books yet. I'm still struck by the ways the show differs from the books. Some of the aspects of the show I prefer, but the books give such a richer tapestry, including so many supporting characters that are lacking from television, plus a deeper understanding of character motivations and plot developments.

Martin is such a good writer. These books don't read like other fantasy books I've read; everything is grounded in a gritty reality. Plus he imagines such delightfully fascinating characters.
