Just finished a large book

A Dance with Dragons. That wasn't the most cheerful book I've read in a long time, but it did start a short but interesting conversation with Geoff about the difference between writers' writing. Martin's compelling, I want to find out what happens next, but I am not really interested in his prose as a thing in itself. I never feel illuminated or think, "Wow, what a beautiful phrase". Not a prose stylist at all.
