    I ve been trying to find a few words to say about the announcement of this in a calm and collective manner This book will annoy a lot of fans it has REALLY annoyed me because it is not the book we all want What makes it even worse though is that this book actually sounds quite good I m of two minds Part of me wants to avoid it out of spite Part of me feels insulted to the point where I don t actually want to read it Then the other half of me is sort of excited, excited to the point where I ve been trying to find a few words to say about the announcement of this in a calm and collective manner This book will annoy a lot of fans it has REALLY annoyed me because it is not the book we all want What makes it even worse though is that this book actually sounds quite good I m of two minds Part of me wants to avoid it out of spite Part of me feels insulted to the point where I don t actually want to read it Then the other half of me is sort of excited, excited to the point where I ll buy a copy of it on release day and relish the history and lore For me though, it doesn t matter how good or bad this book may be because when I read it I am going to be angry at it I will not enjoy it as I should And that s sad Logically speaking, it makes sense for this to be released after A Song of Ice and Fire when the dynasty has I presume ended or found a way to flourish Trying to write an impartial review and one where I m not bitching will be a challenge come November I will be reading through gritted teeth
