    Oh me too, definitely a contender for the best scene in the books IMO. Before that, Jaime was just the random 'bad guy', but after that scene...*swoon* ;). I think it's one of the most charismatic descriptions I've ever read of a character in a book and from then on he was a far more interesting character than his sister.

    I think a lot of you are underating AFFC, sure it does not have the "favourite" characters of some of you, but it gives great insight into others and their lands, it is a great intro to the south and what may well happen in the future. A tangled net it may so weave, but it leaves you hanging and hungering for more.

    liadan, i really like your new outfit. the best one so far, in my oppinion. go for it!!!

    enivej, i hated the last one, a feast for crows. too slow, too much of talk, and no action. it did give a lot of background though. but still... besides, all the characters i love aren't there. naturally i didn't like it. because of them mostly.

    The last one was a very good book, just less good than the others.

    The last one, AFFC, because it has many boring paragraphs with Brienne and Arya.

    And I agree with Omega, most ofthe characters i love aren't there. I missed Jon very much, I missed him the most.
    And the most interesting characters, like Tyrion and Daenerys aren't in that book.

    Ok..now you made it sound like when I read "Ana Karenjina" in high-school: reading only chapters about Ana and skiping those about ljevin. (sorry about spelling, I don't have any idea how names are to be spelled in English).
    What i don't like about AffC is prolonging of the story and extending it with bunch of new characters. Don't get me wrong, book is beautiful as others are; it is interesting and exciting...but I don't think that next book in serial will be last. All I say that when novels are too long they treaten to became somewhat dull. For example great number of my friends gave up WoT after 5th or 6th book.

    Thanks, Omega. :) Senekha made it for me a long time ago, lol.

    And Lyanna, that's one reason why I absolutely adore that scene - it speaks of Jaime as a character for the first time in the books. :)

    yeah, the next will be much more exciting. Read the expert at the back of the book, and it says this one focused on kings landing, and the next will focus on Dany and the north

    The next has some more exciting characters, but it will also feature Davos. *groan*

    Sometimes I feel sorry for him, but mostly I feel like he's PoVs are the most boring, just because they're so damn mopey.

    He's cool and a good person, but his boringness keeps me from loving him. :p

    Well appaliq can hope that Davos is really dead, and Kakashi can hope that davos dead is only a ruse thought up by the mountain that eats.

    It will bring some excitement to your lives.
