Having reread ASOIAF and associated works so many times in the looooonnggg wait for TWOW, I finally decided to follow all of the suggestions to read GRRM’s earlier stuff.
This is an obvious early work. The characters are cartoonish, and the setting is effectively fantasy (and i lave fanrasy, don’t get me wrong) contrived as a sci fi setting. It is basically Flash Gordon for grown ups. I found the characters un-engaging and the plot vague and uncompelling. All good m all OK but I regret the cost of buying this one.
Get his “The Armageddon Wrag” instead. That one is brilliant!!
