Dying of the Light finished [Aug. 4th, 2008|09:37 pm]
I started and finished George R. R. Martin's Dying of the Light, finally. It's been sitting on my shelf for nigh on three years.

It's horribly tragic and pure Martin. The writing is brilliant, the characters are fleshed out and drive the story. But tragic. I mean, the title refers to the planet that the story takes place on, which is a rogue planet (no home star) that has only a few years left to live. And it's a love story. A Martin love story.

It's also pretty short: the trade paperback weighs in around 240 pages of story, and you can polish it off in a couple of hours to get your grrm fix until he gets around to the next Ice & Fire book.
