[quote=""Madeleine""]I agree with you Bec, I'd probably forgive Jaime most things except for what he did to Bran.
In the UK, the 3rd book has been split into 2 separate books, so going by the page number you give, I would think it happens in the second book.[/quote]
The one thing I think is a legitimate complaint made by Jaime is that they all wanted the mad king dead, but when Jaime did kill him they then all loathed him for doing it. Ned, Robert etc say it is the way
it was done...Is there a good way to murder someone? Especially when that someone is king and if you fail, you're the one who will be dead? There is a touch of hypocrisy involved here and deep in his heart I think Jaime longs for their respect.
I am glad Martin gave Jaime his own chapters because you gain a better understanding of him and as I said I swing like a pendulum with him....But what he did to Bran is inexcusable and it is this
that taints him in my mind and not the murder of the mad king.
