    So..... ASOIAF Vets- For a first time reader of those, Do you recommend this method, or just read them as is?

    There is something to reading books as the author intended. That being said, I'd read them like this. As is, each books deals only with one area. So, some of your favorite characters will not show up at all in a 1000+ page book. (I don't want to say who or who doesn't appear, what with spoilers and all). I'll say this, I wish I had read them like posted above the first time. You still get the story and all.

    I would read them as the author intended first

    The author did intend for it to be one book but it got too big

    We dont know how he intended to order the chapters though if it had remained on book.

    I'm going to read it in order right now. Sucks not to have certain characters, but OTOH, when I get to DWD it'll be awesome because they'll all be back. Will probably read it like this next summer when I do a re-read of the series.

    I think first time through you should read AFFC by first. there are so many new characters, give yourself a chance to get to know them.

    How good is a re read? I was thinking about it after I finish Damned and John dies at the end.

    Amazing. I had no idea how much I missed. I would say a second read is almost a necessity.

    I have enjoyed the reread as much if not more than the first time through

    I'm not going to look and see if it matches up with the order in the OP's link but this just popped up on my newsfeed, retweeted by Tower of the Hand

    I wouldn't recommend doing it upon first read but I would HIGHLY recommend doing that upon reread

    Would love if someone more knowledgable in the ways of ebooks was able to combine the two books together in one file so I wouldn't have to jump back and forth.

    I have just 3 chapters left of ASOS and will be finishing it today. Final verdict - should I realy AFFC and ADWD combined or separate.

    TELL ME WHAT TO DO!!!!!!! :ohdear:

    Read them separately the first time, read them together in a year or two when you reread the series.
