I'm sure it's been discussed but.... bored

4 posts in this topic

I'm trying to get through AFfC & unlike the previous three books, I'm finding myself bored with it. It's just so slow! I enjoyed the first three books, I had a hard time putting them down! With AFfC I'm having the opposite problem,I can't keep reading it. I read a few pages & have to stop.

I got that nearer the start of the book (both times I read it) but later on I was enjoying it again. It just takes a while to start caring about some of the new characters.

Yes, it has been discussed before.

The main difference between the first three books and AFFC is that latter gives us some POVs that we have to rate, not only for the development / personality of the character, but also for the political events.

AFFC is written very differently than the first 3 books that's for sure.  Some of these new arcs and characters just aren't that interesting though.  I also feel that GRRM is using these new POV characters to just introduce more depth and history to the world of Westeros, but they don't seem to be adding anything to the overall story. Euron's arc might be the only that can tie in, but it's through Vicatarion's POV and he has all the personality of a lamp post.
