What else can I say about this marvellous thing, possibly E.M. Forester's best work? The love story is perfect, and the characters are alive - too alive almost, as you can't help getting a tad aggravated with Lucy at moments and love her nonetheless. Much of the story is set in Italy - where Forster spent such a long time himself - and perfectly so, hilarious at times and sad; and also so wise you'll barely notice, and when you do it hits you in the gut like you'd just stumbled over a treasure. Although the story is set decades ago, if you are an experienced creature, you will relate, trust me.
Absolutely worth the wait, and the best in the series so far; probably better than a Storm of Swords.
A wonderful example of how NOT to write. I cannot wait for the fifth book, the POVs are ones we care about in that; let's face it, no one wants a POV of Cersei or half a hundred other idiots. Even attempting to read/listen to this can be mortally perilous.
This is a masterpiece.. Be prepared to be utterly addicted. You will want to buy the entire series. Just pay attention when you listen, and trust me: it gets good.
