So this was a great book, and it was hard to put down, but I don't know if I'll keep reading this series. I know that some people are cruel, and that often the bad guys win, but I just can't handle every character to whom I grow attached being dealt with harshly or ended terribly. I'm really curious about what happens to Arya, Bran, and even Tyrion, but what's the point if they are probably just all manipulated and then murdered in some horrifying manner? Also, I know that winter is coming, and we never even really got a taste of that, but still I'm not sure if it's worth the time and emotional investment to find out. I'll keep my eye out for it and see if the mood strikes some other time.

Zeke glad you enjoyed it. I completely understand your reservations about it too! This kind of thing continues to happen and if you want to know what happens, there's always the upcoming HBO series!
