The author seems afraid to end the series -- or uncertain as to the ending. He insults his listeners by rehashing 'old news' without really moving the story forward. This is more like a movie of the week where they take a 30 minute story and stretch is to 2 hours in order to enrich the pockets of the producers without any concern of the viewers/readers.
He rambles on and on and on and on
It is so hard for anything to stand out amid the endless droning. Too many characters. Too much back story. Too little forward momentum. If you thought the last book went nowhere, be prepared...
Martin's world and character names are engaging -- too bad he seems afraid to get to a final climax. At least Tolkein had the conviction to find an ending.
Wish I hadn't wasted so much time on a book that went nowhere. Time to move on -- even if the author is able to.
