FYI Feast for Crows and Dance with Dragons overlap in time.

Currently reading Merian C. Cooper's KING KONG and Kong of Skull Island after hearing of the new D+ show.

And also Neil Gaiman's Norse Mythology for research for a film idea of mine

Yes, I know that now. I really wish I’d known that before starting A Feast for Crows as I would’ve used this chapter order and read them simultaneously. I’ll definitely do so if I ever re-read.

Edit: I checked out the order you linked which is a bit more straightforward (ie doesn’t bounce around within the respective books). Having not read the books already I’m not sure how much the additional shuffling in the order I linked helps. I’m already to The Reaver chapter in Crows but I’m going to stop there and read Dragons up to where the combined order meets The Reaver chapter in Crows. At least I’ll get the last third in a combined fashion.

I've seen several different reading orders. I think this one I linked to is the one I used because it keeps a couple of reveals in flashbacks later in the books from being spoiled by a truly chronological reading.

The one you linked looks to be chronological (or at least book order). But I could be wrong. The one I linked definitely mixes up the book order.

Just finished The Hero and the Crown, by Robin McKinley and as it stands, I'd have to go 4/5 stars.

Incal-moebius-jodorowsky.jpg


At last, I got round to starting and finishing 'The Incal', inspired by the movie announcement last year. I didn't understand a word of it :LOL: but Moebius' artwork is beautiful, the characters are fun and endearing and the concepts and weird future civilisations are fascinating. Also you're left with the feeling that it all made perfect, logical sense to Jodorowsky, if only the reader could ascend to the same spiritual and intellectual plain... or maybe it's just random stuff about naked ladies riding giant mutated mice over garbage wastes, our hero having sex with a sentient pool of slime in order to father a race of 78-billion identical clones and our rag-tag band of adventurers assembling an army of galactic jellyfish, to combat vast black space eggs. Erm, so the Incal is like crystalline space Jesus?

Now to tackle 'Before The Incal' and 'Final Incal'. Maybe it'll make more sense, when I've read all three (or more likely less sense).

Finally finished A Feast for Crows in the Song of Ice and Fire. After realizing midway through that the novel mirrored the timeline of A Dance With Dragons, I went back and forth between the two novels using this order. It’s definitely the way to go anyone reading these books. It has left me about 1/8th of the way through the second volume of A Dance with Dragons, aptly subtitled “After the Feast.” I’ll probably finish that up in the next week or so and join the throngs awaiting The Winds of Winter.
