    I figured some of the long-time Song of Ice & Fire readers will want to talk about this book as they go through it. So, instead of overloading the Game of Thrones Season 1 thread, I decided to go ahead and do it.

    The Chapter POV list has been released, but could be considered a very mild spoiler, so I'll spoiler tag it.

    • Tyrion 1
    • Daenerys 1
    • Jon 1
    • Bran 1

    Well since you spoilered the chapter POV character names, I'll spoiler this as well:

    I'm initially pretty disappointed that Arya only gets TWO chapters. I was really wanting to hear where her story goes after going blind.

    No, he was Doran Martell's son who (it's strongly implied) he sent to find Daenerys and bring her back to get revenge on the Lannisters

    I checked out the leaked photos of the first 600 pages...I think I'll just wait until I don't have to make my eyes bleed to read it. What's four more days?

    Some say it's the best of the series so far. I better hope so. I haven't read A Feast For Crow yet. Guessed I'm going to suck it in and find the time to read it. The only problem is that I haven't read ASOIAF in 11 yrs so I'm not sure if I should skim through the first 3 books again.

    Oh god. I just try reading that and my brain just melt function. I think I just might have to find the time to reread the whole thing again. Should be worth it.
