The thing with the books is that GRRM originally only intended for it to be a trilogy. And by the time you hit book 4, it shows. My suggestion is to just stick with the first 3 books, otherwise you will inevitably feel that you're reading the others out of a sense of begrudging obligation. I know I did.
But Book 3 does not at all end all--any--of the plot lines. How would sticking with the first three books be a more palatable reading experience?
