A nice set of tales that flesh out the world of Ice and Fire a bit more and – of course – foreshadow some ‘other’ things. Despite that, Dunk & Egg prove to be entertaining and give a glimpse at how ASOIAF might have been had it only retained a single point of view.
If anything, this book might invoke despair. Despair at that even after GRRM will complete ASOIAF, we’ll never be able to experience the entire world he had envisioned, because this book hints at much, much more besides. Entertaining on its own, much more pleasant as a ‘prologue’ of sorts.
