I review a book about a detective investigating a possible murder six months before the world is supposed to end. I also try not to say he’s seeking a murderer at the end of the world. Rats.

My thoughts on the Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones) series so far, with a breakdown of each book.

What will with no doubt be an important book about an important man, it could have benefited from some more editing and a bit more focus as the story moved along, though most agreed it was a riveting biography.
Few reviewers had anything bad to say about this book where (maybe) a wife disappears and her husband could be to blame. Or maybe not. Apparently it creeps you out and keeps you guessing until the end, and is very well-written in the process.
Despite being about a closed-off community of Hassidic Jews, this is a sad and powerful story is surprisingly relatable for the world at large – many of the reviewers said they wept when they read it.
An irreverent, debauched historical comedy about impressionists, most of the reviewers found it brilliant, and the few issues found in it were a slightly lagging main story and juvenile humor.
