A Storm of Swords

A Storm of Swords - George R.R. Martin I'm three books in and this is my favorite so far!
The first was great, the second a little less, but in this one you already love, hate, respect or despise the characters, and it extends the scope of possibilities for every single character.

There are absolutely shocking situations and turns of events, and some great new characters. But try not to get too attached because George Martin takes the phrase seriously in this one: Valar Morghulis

Os Espiões

Os Espiões - Luis Fernando Verissimo I had read the first chapter in the brazilian version of GRANTA, and I was really surprised!

The book starts very well, you want to know more about the drunk editor who approves books depending on how hung over he is, about the mysterious girl who writes to the editor telling her story, about the town the girl lives in, which apparently is now controlled by her husband and his brother.

But as the story unfolds, it loses its strength. It an alright read, light and fun, but there's no substance after the first chapters, and by the end of the book, you don't even care about the characters. The feeling is that of a pretty, but juice less fruit.
