I heartily recommend the books to any fantasy fan who hasn't read them yet. They're really, really good, and I've enjoyed each in turn (although some more than others). Quite unlike LOTR, but no less interesting and in many ways more realistic and grounded in actual history. I fervently hope Martin finishes the series, but have to admit I doubt it, more and more with each passing month. Doesn't look like he has his heart in it and, as earlier noted, he seems to be enjoying himself more doing other stuff.

I almost wish Martin had some benign but insistent taskmaster in his life who would make sure he eats his Wheaties, gets his exercise, sleeps sufficiently, and keeps writing, dammit!
