He gets wrapped around the wheel at times - 20 pages burned at banquets, endless wanderings by Brienne of Tarth, etc. I'd argue that the HBO dramatization of Dance with Dragons kicks the shit out of GRRM's version simply because it condenses a lot of tedious bullshit into quick, tight plot points and eliminates entire subplots that are nearly impossible to give a shit about.

But yeah. Game of Thrones was the series that convinced me that fiction was worth writing.
