The Tower of the Hand

I'm prepping up to read GRRM's A Storm of Swords soon (finally, I know!), and I just wanted to point out that http://www.towerofthehand.com is the perfect ASOIAF resource! I knew the website existed, but I hadn't realized that it was that detailed.

Their chapter-by-chapter breakdown of every ASOIAF volume is wonderful, and each section contains everything you'd possibly want to know, including special spoiler portions.

I was just looking for a detailed outline or synopsis for both A Game of Thrones and A clash of Kings, so I got a lot more than I expected. Took me a few hours to get through everything, but I am now ready to start volume 3!

It better be good. . .;-)

Awesome.

Yeah, I agree. Being on the cusp of reading the best book in the series so far...man I am jealous and wish I could go back and relive that one! Enjoy man!

Rob Diana said...

Heathen! How dare you call yourself a GRRM fan, and you just get to this book?!?! It is a travesty!

Enjoy, as it seems like there is quite a wait before the next one.

Casey said...

Oh man, you're in for a treat. As others have said, I would love to go back and read ASOS for the first time again. Once completed, you will be part of the slobbering masses, begging at GRRM's feet for the next book. Welcome to the addiction.

Hey, it's all GRRM's fault! Around the time when ACoK was published, he told me the series would be about 5 books long, with a year between the publication of each volume.

I didn't want to get into yet another multi-volume epic fantasy saga, you see... I figured I could wait till the whole thing was done.

But since it took him a tad longer than expected, I caved in.:-)

I am shocked that there is someone out there who has read the first two and was able to resist the third for so long.

Anyway, yeah prepare to be blown away. Make sure you wear old pants, because in all likelyhood you will shit yourself.

Nicely done, Pat. It took you a while but you got round to it in the end.

Note, you have read Lord of the Rings, haven't you ;-P

@ Rob Diana: Erm, Book 4 came out two years ago, so there isn't really a wait.

Mike said...

Yah, such a great series. Got Book 4 just waiting to be read, but, I want Book 5 out before I start so I feel I have some hope.

How many books is it suppose to be? 6? 7? ANy idea?

Tia Nevitt said...

I loved the third book, but I still have not gotten through A Feast for Crows.

Anyway, I just wanted to pop in and say Happy New Year!

Sea-Bass said...

I cant tell Clash of Kings apart from Storm of Swords, that is how fast I tore through the story. Pretty astounding feat to resist the third novel for so long, I wasnt as strong minded ;).

Happy New Year's folks! Let '08 be the year to dance!

Morgwyn said...

I'm 180 pages into Gardens of the Moon. I would never have picked it up without your encouragement. So thanks.

@ Mike: The series is supposed to be 7 books long.
