A Dance With Dragons, George R.R. Martin (2010)

Release Date: September 28, 2010

Posted By: Elle Ewok

Mark your calendars, according to Amazon, A Dance With Dragons will be released next September 2010. Well, it seems the old perv is finally making some progress!

A Dance With Dragons is the highly anticipated 5th book of the incomparable series A Song of Ice and Fire. Its release date has been pushed back repeatedly. The first book of this seven book series was published in 1996 and readers have become rather impatient with the slow publication of the remainder of the series. By the time A Dance With Dragons is published next year it will have been five years between the fourth and fifth books. I know some of you will say that these are long books with detailed plots and that patience is a virtue. To you I say, SHUT THE HELL UP! This is America 2009 - the Golden Age of Narcassistic Entitlement. As such, George R.R. Martin needs to get his pudgy rear in gear and convert his blood, sweat and tears into a product for our consumption NOW. Then the government should give us copies for free. LITERACY IS A RIGHT! GIVE US FREE SHIT!

I affectionately refer to Mr. Martin as a perv because of the disturbing and ridiculously gratuitous sexual violence directed towards women and the bizarre, detailed, hyper-sexual content revolving around a 13 year old girl in the first two books of the series. However, due to desensitization and the unparalleled entertainment value otherwise present in the books, I have always recommend this series enthusiastically.

The POV characters for A Dance With Dragons have been released (YAY!): Daenerys Targaryen, Jon Snow, Tyrion Lannister, Davos Seaworth, Bran Stark, Arya Stark, Asha Greyjoy, Theon Greyjoy, Quentyn Martell, Varamyr Sixskins and one further yet to be revealed character.

It is wonderful to see that some of the best characters will be coming back, I've missed them.

At 61 years old and a chubster many are fearful that Mr. Martin will not live long enough to complete his masterpiece at this pace. The Yinzer Book Club wishes Mr. Martin continued good health and a good yinzer work ethic.
