Nobody, and I mean nobody, gets forgotten.

But that doesn't mean they get story resolution anytime soon. This is an epic tale. ;)

I wouldn't seem in keeping with his style to forget anyone.

I am further impressed with Tyrion's character. Kind of confused about this business with Theon Greyjoy.

Oh great.

I am on A Storm of Swords now. I think I like Blackfish the best.

I just started listening to Game of Thrones again. this will be 3 times. I don't think I've ever read a book 3 times before.

Come on now, seriously? They made her marry Tyrion?!

Happy Monkey 01-26-2011 03:18 PM

What do you have against traditional marriage?

kerosene 01-26-2011 05:05 PM

Not much, unless it's to a midget!

Griff 01-26-2011 08:04 PM

I loved Tyrion's character development.

I'm completely sympathizing with him at this point. Then again, I sympathized with Gaius Baltar too, and a lot of people thought I was nuts for that as well.

I got enticed into starting A Storm of Swords. I was intending to let the series go for a bit and read other things, but it was just sitting there, beckoning, and next thing I knew, I read the prologue, and the first chapter ... and now I'm onto about chapter 10.

I was listening to this in the car with the kids yesterday on the way to and from skiing, and had to bring them up to speed on where the story was (only about 1/4 thru the first book) and it was a lot to tell. He builds a storyline pretty quickly. There are already 7 or 8 distinct plot-lines going at this early stage. And he just keeps intertwining and separating them... Lots of authors will run two or three plots through a book... Martin just keeps adding them on, and adding them on. It makes the story so ...big.

Yes, I know...and it seems like the further into the series we get, the bigger the books get. I love it and curse it for addicting me so easily. He is an amazing story teller.

kerosene 01-27-2011 08:30 PM

Yeah, his plot lines get huge, but he makes up for it by slaughtering a good portion of the characters :mad2:
