How do i find or read sample chapters?

78 posts in this topic

I believe GRRM mentioned some time ago that there will be no more sample chapters released.



The sample chapters also introduce more questions than they provide answers, little can be discerned from them that tells of the outcome of the TWOWs two largest events (from what we know), the battle of the North and the battle of Mereen.

Oh, I read it last week and didn't even think of posting the link. Thanks for thinking of it!

I thought it was really good, right up until the end where she

kind of tried to replicate what she did back at the inn with the Mountain. I mean she doesn't need to say "is there something wrong with your legs; do I need to carry you" to every scum from Harrenhal she kills, does she?

You're mixing up book Arya with show Arya. As far as I know she doesn't do this twice.

Hi Robb Stark, I just posted basically the same question yesterday and got a helpful response in the "In-depth discussions on each sample chapter" thread. Hopefully that will be helpful for you.

See I have mixed feelings about this. It is a cool thing to be able to read a chapter from one of the books, but if he starts pouring samples out we will have half the book read before WoW is actually published. Then we will have to wait even longer for the final book ;).

I agree. I printed off one of the Tyrion chapters from ADwD. Practically memorized it ("Where do the whores go?").

By the time the book came out, I could barely make myself read it one more time.

I read the same bit. Martin says he will not read or release any new TWoW chapters.

There is a link to the page MA posted on the wiki too.

(Or did you add that?)

I added that one :)

The original link to Mercy simply linked to the preview chapter page, which no longer contained the chapter Mercy, which is why I was searching for another way to link it ;)

I own a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and in Google Play it says my device isn't compatible. It's only for tablets?

The availability depends on the country and on the type of device (Apple, Android) that you use. On Android it is only available in the US, if I recall correctly.

Is there an update available? The Tyrion chapter was released by app only, IIRC, so that should be in there anyhow...
