** spoiler alert ** Wow. I haven't been this drawn into a book and it's characters in a long time. I was literally stressing out about what was happening to Bran, Arya, Sansa, and Jon. I read mixed reviews of this one. It seems some people had a hard time getting into it and felt there wasn't enough action until the very end. I didn't have that problem. I had a very hard time putting this one down. It was seriously a downer, however. I didn't feel like there were any story-lines that were in the least bit hopeful. I'm so ready for some good news for ANY of them. I did find myself only skimming the Daenarys chapters. I know some people love her character, but I'm not a fan just yet. I hope that changes. Maybe I'll be more interested when she gets back to the Seven Kingdoms. Oh and WTF is up with Stannis' weird Melisandre?! She was too icky for me. I love Tyrion. We're supposed to hate the Lannisters, I know, which is why I find it so interesting that GRRM wrote Tyrion to be so likable. He is so unappreciated by his awful family, especially horrible Cersei. Why is she still alive? I hope he eventually joins foces with the Starks. I don't see how that would happen, but I'd be happy. Here's hoping the next installment provides some hope! I want Arya, at least, to find her way to her mother. She's another of my favorites.

If you haven't read this series and like long, sweeping sagas, you have to read it!
