I think I'll go crazy while I'm reading A Dance With Dragons. I'll be reading way too fast because of it's greatness, and I won't be able to help it. I'll finish the book in less than two weeks despite it's epic length. I'll be complaining about it being too short one-hundred pages in.

Massive withdrawals have transitioned to hyper- omega- colossal- monumental- mammoth- titanic- towering- tremendous- unwieldy- walloping- massive withdrawals. That series has made everything else in life pointless.

Oh yeah, you should read this series. Screw THE DARK TOWER series, screw the new Koontz book, screw everything, read this.

This is the number one reason I'm reluctant to read George RR Martin.

Song of Ice and Fire is supposed to be a 7-8 book series, and Martin is taking four or five years to write each book. I'm literally afraid he might drop dead before finishing.

Now that I'm finished, I'm definitely scared of him dropping dead. In fact, I think that was my first thought right after I finished A Feast for Crows. Please don't let this be another Canterbury Tales. I hope that he at least has an outline of what will basically happen just in case. Even if that outline would have changed 500 times by series' end. It's a chance I had to take though, after plunging into the first one I knew I wouldn't be able to stop. So, if you don't want to get addicted, wait as long as you can before you start the series.

I plan on reading A GAME OF THRONES very soon, and I'm anxious to see whether Martin lives up to the hype. I have the first three books in the series on my shelf, and they're calling out to me.

Good! I hope you like them. I hate when stuff doesn't live up to hype. That's why I try not to hype things up too much.
