This installment takes a while to pick up go like the wind (in a book this admeasurement, that translates to a few hundred pages...yikes. But I've read THIS far in the sequence, so I wasn't going to stop after a few hundred pages), but overall I found it a very satisfying continuation of the Poem of Ice and Fire. It gets really, really dark, which I actually quite enjoy. And it seems like the "main" mystiques are dropping like flies. There was one fatality I expected (though I didn't expect it to happen so soon), one that really surprised me, one that made me laugh (I am evil and have a black focal point), and one that I think will lead to some really interesting ramifications. The weakest parcel of the book, for me, was the "fanaticism" of both Lysa Arryn and Joffrey. Moreso Lysa though. The theme for those mystiques felt so contrived and false, and while Lysa ran around screaming "what about meeeeeeeeeee" and such, I just rolled my contemplates. Joffrey's hard-heartedness was a little more nuanced, but I think he was used to wrap up some plot properties too neatly. One of the most interesting and unexpected things was the relationship between Jamie Lannister and Brienne of Tarth. I really liked their back and forth, and I also enjoy how Jamie is evolving. Brienne is a kind of bracing, and when I had to read about her with Catelyn I hated it, but when I read about her with Jamie I actually found myself enjoying her a little more. I still really like Danerys, though I just want her to get to the darn Seven Dynasties already. And I love Arya, though she is certainly the most ruthless and screwed up 12 year old I've ever encountered in pamphlet. I look forward to translation more.
Not sure if it is the last specific but I will find out in two seconds:)
