** spoiler alert ** the characters are shallow and hollow. they are presented with only one or two qualities and those are pushed at every opportunity. sam the coward, cersei the crazy bitch, ned the honourable, etc. Or you have others that are talked up a lot but dont present any of the qualities they are alleged to have, like tywin.

the main plot mover is the death of characters and introduction of new ones which really gets old. and some of the deaths are really lazily done. birthing shadows to kill off some people because mr. martin seemingly has grown bored and doesnt wish to write about people any longer...
now, i dont mind killing or maiming main characters, it can be a good thing. but it just happens so often and sometimes for no reason other than just to kill someone that it gets old. its more of a surprise when someone doesnt die...except that since they are still alive they will likely die later.
