Yesterday I happened to think about Martin's series and decided to check Dance With Dragons' Amazon page to see if it had a release date. No, but somehow the book had accrued 49 reviews and a two-and-a-half star rating. Had I missed the book's coming out? Was there some foreign edition that people had gotten a hold of? No. The majority of the "reviews" are fans expressing their disappointment with the delay in publication and asking variations of the question: "Why isn't it done yet?"
