    Seems to be pretty common for people to not like Daenerys but I love her. The development of the character alone is awesome. Going through mereen and learning what it means to be a ruler. Also she is a targ and they're crazy.

    What's the opinion on young grif or the supposed aegon (prob not even the right name. Been too long) I kinda get the feeling its going to fall short. But sort of act as a means of connecting tyrion with daenerys.

    haha, same. Everytime I'd flip the page to see another Daenerys chapter I was thinking, fuck not that blonde whingey bitch again . Belwas was the saving grace, that lovable drinkin eaten slaying mofo.

    I hope you have a fair bit of spare time up your sleeve then

    I watched the first two episodes last year and then lost several days worth of study, because I just had to find out what happened in the next episode.

    Holy shit balls was last weeks episode good. I have rewatched the final scene a couple times. I couldn't be happier with how they adapted it for the show. Shit like that is why I love Danny. So much more bad ass than she gets credit for.

    @stiffy - how u said u struggled reading the Danny chapters in the first book. I'm pretty sure they were compiled into a novella and won some award! Meant to mention it a couple pages back.

    Hopefully some of the unsullied characters get introduced soon. I really struggle to remember the time line for everything so each weeks episode is still a bit of fun trying to remember what happs when and who does what.

    Can someone help me with a timeline question as well?

    I really had to think about that for a moment. It was in the same book wasn't it?

    Kinda cool idea. Benjen still seems to be a more likely suspect though.

    Read another one


    I guess it's an obvious idea when you think about it but it wasnt something that came to my attention. His origins are pretty mysterious. I guess the problem with theory is where he fits into the family lineage. A bastard perhaps ? Maybe the series name should be changed to "A song of the importance of bastards"


    Wow, here is an even more complex theory about the heritage of Aegon and Varys

    Another suspect for cold hands is the nights king or whatever he was called from nans stories. The LC of the NW that fell in love with a wight and made the NW his army or something. I am still going with bran the builder! I really don't think its benjen, it doesn't fit. I think he will pop up somewhere in the land of forever winter in the next book. Martin has said a lot of the story will take place there.

    I'm trying to remember how far into the book it is.

    On another note, I really need to read the latest book before I forget all the characters that army in the series.

    I posted this about a year ago in the forums, but now that the show is a bit more popular I guess you guys will actually watch it this time.

    I applaud you sir, I started reading the series as soon as it was green-lit by HBO. It seemed like something I would really be interested in so I looked at some book reviews which, of course, were very positive. This is one thing I have a very hipster mentality towards

    how on earth did you find that old post so quickly?

    I'm not even sure what year I started reading the series, but it was sometime after 2000 but before 2005 (because I had to wait a long time for Feast to be released). It was a hot tip from the second hand bookshop owner in Bowral, a guy who'd recommended other excellent series' to me before (I used to spend quite a few Winter holidays in Robertson). If you're ever in that neck of the woods, check out Bong Bong Books on the main street of Bowral, and have a chat with the owner. Dude knows his shit.

    I picked up the audio book , get stuck in when i can.

    I like reading on my Nexus and having a large collection IN MY PANTS ! but man the smell of old books and the age shown on the pages still draws me in more , i find i tend to finish a real book in one siting more than an Ebook , perhaps it strains the eyes more but anyway that's not why you called.

    Yea I bought the iPad with the intention of reading on it but its a bit too bright. I wonder if you listen to the audio books while you are sleeping if you will remember it, kind of like learning a new language.

    I think the screen just makes my eyes tired faster than real paper , perhaps an ink e reader would be better who knows.

    Listening while asleep ha ha Loco i ,might try it , it may invade your dreams , i wouldn't mind dreaming about some of the Game Of Thrones boobies heh.

    You got to think it would invade your subconcious. How awesome would it be dreaming you were a character in GoT having your story narrated to you. Fuck it I'm getting the audio books and listening to them while I sleep, that is seriously some next level shit.

    Any decent e-reader app will allow you to turn the brightness right down. I really like reading on tablets as you can read in bed without needing a light and you can hold it a fair way from your face and still be able to read it clearly. Way more comfortable for your arms too. Most of my reading nowadays though is done via audiobook which I can listen to while I work.

    Ha ha, they certainly did up it this episode. I don't recall that scene with Theon in the book. Is this something they have brought back from one if the later books? I haven't read the latest one.

    Theon isn't in the 3rd or 4th books at all. He is back in the most recent one and although it doesn't show any of the torturing and stuff it definitely lets you know that he's been dragged through hell and back.
