The second Bran chapter is just all kinds of awesome. The best chapter since Storm of Swords IMO. Im surprised at how much Im enjoying the Jon and Bran chapters.

I really liked it. Slows down a bit in the middle, but some very interesting developments, and I made the mistake of reading one of the "GRRM moments" in a crowded coffee shop. Had to work very, very hard not to totally freak out in public.

Great. Less than half way into Dance and that's exactly my ranking. Though I do tend to like Swords and Thrones equally. Bodes well for the rest of Dance.

I very much doubt that he is dead. He must learn who his real parents are before he dies.

realized i never posted my thoughts here (i'll put it in spoiler tags I guess):

Spoiler: show
-Feast of Crows is highly underrated. In terms of plot to the larger story yes it's lacking I guess but it's a really exciting read. It's a really dark book because essentially shit happens to all the POV characters. The only nice thing that happens is Sam getting laid and Sansa maturing and understanding the game of thrones finally.

-Dany's chapters post Jorah exile have become really annoying and tiresome to read. Yes, I get it that she is still really young but it doesn't make reading her chapters any better. She comes off as a naive, ignorant little girl, except she has way too much power and authority so her flaws fuck everything up. She may have more moral compass than Cersei but she fucks things up just as badly.

-Tyrion post-Storm of Swords is also kinda boring compared to his usual self, mainly because he lacks any power during Dragons.

-Theon/Reek is the best character in Dragons.

-Jamie burning Cersei's note is one of the highlight of the entire series. I'm becoming convinced he will kill Cersei (she always assumed the younger brother in the prophcey was Tyrion but I think it's Jamie)

-Jon Snow as we knew him is dead. He will come back to life in some new shape but he wont be the same Jon Snow as we know. Still not sure if he is Azor Ahai.

-Bran I think is going to actually end up being The Great Other.

-I think there's a good chance the book ends with the utter destruction of Westeros. I can't see the books ending happily or with stability. Everything is gonna get fucked.

I murdered the first three weeks in my first two weeks of vacations. My favorite part of the series is the last half of A Stor ofSwords, just epic chapter after epic chapter.
I'm just starting to read A Feast of Crows.
