Yeah, Midnight Tides would probably be my favorite, though the 3 book is right up there with it. Both are phenomenal.

It is really impressive that in his whole series 8/9 are really the only two seem to be misses. I'm curious to see what I feel about my re-read of 8 this time, I've read a lot of comments from him about Toll The Hounds that may color my re-read, it was difficult to get through for me last time if I recall correctly, once again it had a great ending but the voice and the sort of meta fiction aspects were challenging.

And I'm not as low on 9 as you are, its sort of a slow brutal trudge getting to book 10, but I didn't hate it.

I think that's the only one of the series I've only read once, I might have to give it another go sometime. The hobbling parts and the traveling kids parts are just so meandering and brutal it just took me out of the story a good bit.

Toll the hounds is a total first half sucks, back half is awesome book for me. Though it does fair much better on reread, as some of the characters that are introduced play key roles in the final book. I feel about Toll the hounds kinda like you feel about Winter's Heart I think. It being 50% good rather than 25% good makes the difference for me

Show news:

The director of Episodes 7&8 posted on insta that he was heading home, as have some small crew members.

This leads to speculation as to if they are a wrap or not, or if they are now doing reshoots. All signs pointed to them filming through November and wrapping in early December at the latest. Them wrapping at the end of October would be a surprise...so its likely they are doing some reshoots now which is common.

Started this based on the recommendation. Almost through book 2, and I'm really enjoying it as well. I'm going to have to read some more by this author.

He does like to explore some erotica in each book, though.

Also I have a new theory that Martin was the mastermind behind COVID so he could get out of his New Zealand / Worldcon guarantee.

quote:

“If I don’t have ‘The Winds of Winter’ in hand when I arrive in New Zealand for Worldcon, you have here my formal written permission to imprison me in a small cabin on White Island, overlooking that lake of sulfuric acid, until I’m done,” wrote Martin in a Not A Blog post in 2019.
