Eight years between installments didn't help. I actually read the first few pages a couple times because the characters only felt passingly familiar and I worried I couldn't follow the story, but powering through the first chapter brought the memories back and kept me from putting it down till I finished. Just as gonzo, gung-ho, over the top ridiculous as all of the other entries in the series, with the expected thin veneer of history that adds depth and shading to the tale. Plus it sets up two if not three more entries. But hopefully with a less GRR Martin-esque delay between their publications.
