GRRM shock horror.......

I appreciate I'm probably going to be regarded as a heretic, reviled, and suffer calumny heaped upon my heathen head, but......

I just finished the Hedge Knight trio [The Hedge Knight, Mystery Knight, Sworn Sword ] and found them extremely enjoyable, and in fact I enjoyed them far more than the by now over-blown, somewhat bloated, Ice & Fire series.
There, I've said it, upon my own head......

The relative simplicity was a plus, and I speak as no great lover of shorter tomes in general.
In fact I wanted them longer, but just noticed the edge was kind of drifting a bit by the end of the third, so perhaps, with this particular sources/s, lean is best.....

He's a short story writer too (check out the retrospective Dreamsongs) so no surprise.

Personally I thought The Hedge Knight was best out of the three.

Thanks for this CarpetMojo, now I'll have to read them too, just to prove you wrong!

Hey, any excuse to read GRRM is a good one!

Had to look up the Cohen reference, that's a new LC song for me.

I really enjoyed the Hedge Knight trio, too. No heresy here!

With age comes wisdom, well, for everybody else but me!

LC is good, just got to be in the mood. "Hallelujah" is one of my current Favs.

And now, back to the topic!
