The best and many frustrating thing regarding the book is that the story is told from eight different perspectives, with each perspective held inside a chapter. Just as you commence in relation to a character and they are desperate to see what are the results to him (or her), you can find yourself thrown off for a number of chapters.
Yet Martin's character development can also be what makes the books so enjoyable to learn. His strategy for creating three-dimensional characters which has a lots of depth, feeling, and back story 's what keeps the future prospect from getting bored.
The determination with the 13-year-old exiled princess and child-bride, Dany; the bleak coming-of-age story with the bastard, Jon Snow, in the northern Wall; the raw emotions of young, tomboyish Arya at King's Landing; the noble intentions of Eddard Stark amidst a court of mummers; and also the sarcastic wit with the impish Tyrion Lannister are just some with the assorted cast of players you'll find yourself rooting for within this bloody game of thrones.
When he did release that book, he left us with hope. That book and also the sequel were to be essentially one large book spread into two parts. With a huge cast of characters spread allover the land, Mr. Martin made a decision to only concentrate on the character in one part with the world, leaving the development with the rest with the characters until the next book. But there was clearly hope! A lot with the chapters were already written. "Gosh! He must have it out by Christmas 2007 for sure", I remember thinking in 2005.
