Brenna--"You will learn alot more about Jaime and it leaves you scratching your head because what you thought you knew isn't so true anymore."
Exactly so and that is the genius of Martin in that in some parts I found myself feeling sorry for the scroundrel and I like how he has included Brienne into the Jamie chapters, but I do fear for her furture, Martin has shown he is not scared to kill his characters(grrr at times)And still NO sign of who is Jon Snow's mother acckkkkkk!!!!
fljustice--" the first 3-4 books, because the author seemed to be repeating her/himself or just milking it."
That is the one thing I find irritating about Martin's writing in that he does go along different byways and sojourns with no real point to it! For instance Arya just how long is she going remain on the run as she escapes, gets kidnapped and on and on....
Ludmilla--"Book five does not confirm Jon's parentage.."
Oh brother! When is Martin going to put us all out of our misery. I think Martin does need someone to tap his shoulder and say...No new characters-Just develop the one's you have and get to the point or the climax of the story.
Perhaps a trilogy would be too short but 4 books should be enough to bring everything to fruition and to finally see the outcome.
Ah dear *scratches head* as I go along and continue book 3.
I know I have done 2 posts but the five book set on the U.K site threw me a little.
