Tyrion left to die at the mercy of the mountain clans, and the way he convinces them to join him. And Brons WTF?!? attitude as he succedes. Tyrion rides out to meet Oberyn in front of the walls of Kings Landing. The way these two banter. Its brilliant. Battle of the blackwater. The progress of the battle described from different POV. I often take out the book just to read this part. Three blows mean others.... and chett pisses his pants A ruler who hides behind paid executioners soon forget what dead is. Neds speak to Bran at the beheading of Garen. Arya and the BwB attacks the bloody mummers at a septry. The way Arya describes the battle is wonderfull. Sam manipulates Jon into the role of Lord Commander. Go Sam! Tyrion gives three versions of his proposal to Dorne/Eyrie to Pycelle, Varys and Littlefinger. Didn´t get the details of this ploy on the first read. Aryas time at Harrenhall. Especially the weasel prisonbreak, and "I hope your princess dies" Jaime opens the white book and reads Barristan Selmys updated entry. Egg I dreamed I was old. Almost cried... vengeance. Justice. fire and blood. Vengeance served cold. Victarion figthing the shield islanders on the deck of a ship in full plate armour. The kingsmoot. For the first time in a thousand year the night were alive with the song of dragons, in wonderfull synergi with "King of the North!" Perfect ending to the first book. Tyrion arrive to Tywins army with the clansmen. Shagga son of Dolf sit at any war council. Tywin: "What brought you down from your Mountains?" Shagga: "Horses" Timett:"there just old men" Yoren and his recruits figthing at the holdfast. Hot pies warcry "Hot Pie" A truly literal ROFL. Some people looked very strangely at me in the train when I almost fell down from my seat. A very good comedic relief in a very gloomy scene. Reading the Epilouge of aSoS with Merret getting hanged. Just thinking WTF it can´t end like this. This is a crap ending. Some guy I never heard about getting hanged. Seemed completely removed from the story. I was not realising that there were going to be more books in the series, as they weren´t written at the time. I don´t know why I think fondly back on this. I kind of accepted Neds beheading and the red wedding right away, as necessary parts of the story. But this pissed me of. Maybe because I never get angry normally and enjoy a good rage now and then.
