Another good novella with a neat and tidy story. Beginning, middle, end. A very strange concept after all of these months of reading GRRM. A much better audiobook narrator this time. Had a nice amount of gravitas and distinctive voice characterizations along with no obvious mispronunciations. ( )

More more! I really enjoy George R R Martin's body of art. ( )

There’s nothing very noticeable about this simple story, a fact that serves to accentuate Martin’s talent. Seldom do I experience the magic of a rapid page-turner these days. My interior imagery is loaded with too many books to feel as excited anymore (sometimes it happens...).

But this man issues words from his fingers that are pure literary nirvana.

I can’t quite determine what it's that makes his writing so addictive. Sentences, paragraphs and pages collude to urge you to read on and on and on.

Martin’s genius seems to lie in his ability to tie one up to his story. One begins his books as reader and consumer and one ends them as slave... ( )

Não sigo a série Game of Thrones, recebi este livro de prenda que fala de histórias passadas 100 anos antes da série TV. Gostei bastante, embora não me tenha surpreendido, tanto narrativamente como em termos de ilustração. É um bom trabalho, mas soa realmente a complemento do núcleo principal narrativo, como que a dar mais detalhe sobre o universo, sobre as vivências, os afazeres, as hierarquias, as honras e todo o seu sistema social.
Acredito que possa ser bastante mais interessante para quem segue a série.
