The only thing that kept me reading was the morbid curiosity of how far off this author would get in his references. I'll leave out specifics to avoid spoilers. Generally speaking, he references what is essentially outlaw 'justice' as if it were a sentence handed down from the king.
A Flight of Sorrows – The Inn at the Crossroads
He references unpunished specifically by the king offenses perpetrated by a group outside the king's influence. He states the King's Justice Payne has no direct underlings and is thus a lonely headsman, but in Book 4 we get a really obvious hand-holding tour of the prison system of King's Landing and learn that Payne does in fact have several underlings as the entire dungeon system is under his direct control!
Clearly this particular author needs to re-read the series a few more times. Oct 17, Dawn Thomas rated it really liked it. I was excited about this book and I am happy to say it did not disappoint. You really need to be a fan-no, not someone who likes the show- but a hardcore-read and re-read the books kind of fan in order to enjoy A Flight of Sorrows. You should also have read the Dunk and Egg tales if you don't know who Dunk and Egg are shame on you! I liked that the essays covered a variety of topics.
While I liked all of them,I especially enjoyed "Under the Bleeding Star" and "The Telltale Knight" because the p I was excited about this book and I am happy to say it did not disappoint. While I liked all of them,I especially enjoyed "Under the Bleeding Star" and "The Telltale Knight" because the prophecies are some of my favorite parts of the books and I think these two essays did a good job of discussing them. I also enjoyed "You Win or You Sit on the Bench" because it opened my eyes to the fact that yes, Bolton is a power player, something I had not really thought of him as until now.
The author did a good job of pointing out why Bolton is in the top ten. And while some of the selections were predictable, the inclusion of Morqorro and Bolton did surprise me. I am a newer fan, I did not plan on watching the HBO series but I happened to catch a preview of the first 15 minutes and I was hooked! I am so glad I saw that preview because I would have missed out on discovering some very good books and television series.
I am very jealous of those of you who have been fans of the books since the beginning-I feel like I have missed out, but better late than never, right? I read the first book while watching the first season of the show and since then I have read all of the books three times-I am obsessed with finding new details that I may have missed and trying to figure out the meanings of the numerous prophecies that are in the series. I am a lurker on Tower of the Hand and other sites, I like to see what others are saying and especially read the essays that are written. I look forward to a second and third and fourth View 1 comment.
Jun 18, Nick Handfield-Jones rated it really liked it. The Tower of the Hand, along with westeros. For years, the contributors have been writing family trees, chapter summaries, theories, and essays for us dedicated fans. Now, with the release of their first essay collection, "Tower of the Hand: A flight of Sorrows", they once again ignite the passion and imagination for the thousands of fans.
The collection contains 8 essays from proli The Tower of the Hand, along with westeros. Essay topics range from the implications of Aegon VI Targaryen to top players in the game of thrones to the parallels between the Dunk and Egg novellas and the series proper. And unlike many other essay collections, which discuss topics associated with the series like the concepts of truth and honor , this one looks at the actual events in the books and tries to make sense of it all. It is a highly engaging read for someone like me and other truly devoted fans, however, I could imagine more casual fans having some trouble understanding some of the things discussed.
For example, the details of the Blackfyre Rebellion or the Azor Ahai prophecy often go missed by a casual reader; they could have a hard time grasping some of the theories mentioned in this book without the more advanced understanding. That in mind, this is a book for the most intense fans. During my read, I began to re-evaluate my previous assumptions and theories, as well as looking at things I had not considered.
It was interesting, exciting, and fun, for it brings us one step closer to finally solving the gargantuan jigsaw puzzle that is "A Song of Ice and Fire. At best when it takes the series as given and discusses aspects of it most notably prophecies and the Dunk and Egg essays but descending into utter silliness in some essays the one about crime detection for example where a pro with knowledge about medieval criminal law and application could have brought something to light, second book about the ASOIAF series I read after the professional Beyond the Wall and while it has entertaining value, the amateurishness here is quite painful on occasion.
At best when it takes the series as given and discusses aspects of it most notably prophecies and the Dunk and Egg essays but descending into utter silliness in some essays the one about crime detection for example where a pro with knowledge about medieval criminal law and application could have brought something to light, but an amateur like the one here just writes utter trash or "power rankings" where the author's NFL habits who cares????
Jun 05, Jon rated it really liked it. I enjoyed this book. I read all of the Ice and Fire books just before the first season of Game of Thrones came out and have lurked on the Tower of the Hand website here and there. While I appreciated the depth of the books though I was not a fan of books 4 and 5 , I have analyzed them as thoroughly as the authors of the essays do here. Gave me some excellent insights into the series and an even greater appreciation for the power of the themes. Nov 26, John W rated it liked it Shelves: fantasy , reference.
It is a great companion piece to the novels consisting of a series of essays by various authors covering several subjects such as infidelity in Westeros to the parallels of the Dunk and Egg tales to the current stories.

Was pretty good, actually would have liked it to be a bit longer and go more in depth into some of the theories, but overall I enjoyed it. Mar 25, Michael Davis rated it really liked it.

Lift my hands and worship You, my Lord. All I am and all I have are Yours. May Your calling be the reason that I live, pressing on to the goal of Jesus Christ. I will follow You. Laying down all my sorrow and shame. Laying down all my sin and my pain. Lord, I come to You, as I am. Laying down all my sadness. Laying down all my burdens. Holding onto You, the great I AM.

Will You soften my heart? Will You show me Your ways? Let me be still and hear You speak to me. Let me see through Your eyes. Let me pray day and night. Pray that the lost will return to You. Will You help me to see Your face smiling on me? I want to speak of Your amazing grace. Take me, mold me, use me. Not by our might, not by our pow'r, only by Your Spirit.

You are the One who calls me a friend. I love You, Lord until the end. When I lack the faith to see, Lord, hear my cry. Life is found in You, all belongs to You. I believe Your perfect will is greater than mine. For all things work as one for the good of those who love You, Lord.
I believe Your perfect ways are higher than mine. I surrender my all to You. There is one true God. His name is Jesus Christ. He has come to give you life, to save and redeem you.

So I managed to spill water all over my laptop and it even got into various ports and damaged the battery; I am writing on it now so it works for the most part, but I need to have the keyboard changed because I'm missing six or so letters and it makes it really hard to write.
Which is a roundabout way of saying I'm a little late with the next re-read post and I was finally on a once-a-week roll because writing is a really annoying thing to be doing with keys missing, bent and unresponsive unless you hammer it with your fingertip does that make me sound strong? Ye olde gods how many times do I have to tap just to get an "R"?? Anyway, in the meantime, fabulous fansite Tower of the Hand has revealed its new publication, a collector's edition of Flight of Sorrows. Formerly an e-book, now an actual printed book with lots of new material for those who already have the digital version.
Here is the press release for said book. I was kindly asked to write a new additional foreword for this collector's edition, which I did. Martin's ass on occasion. All right, here is the press release as published over at the Tower.
