And since a lot of that 114 pages is taken up with contents, blurbs and so forth, the reading sample itself was only a chapter plus a bit of the second. Just as an FYI.
Despite my reading of the GRRM opus (Curiosity's got me about what happens next; I don't think the books are well-written), I'm not especially into fantasy either. I voted for my own nomination, Wicked, which seems more my cuppa in the fantasy stakes. Since it's a non-starter, I'll probably be on the sidelines, although I could participate in a discussion of Game of Thrones.
I think I'll read Wicked no matter what wins. Fantasy isn't my cup of hemlock, but Wicked seems interesting. Plus, it's been made into a musical. Must be something to it.
