The Bookworm's Den

Worming my way through books since 1998 


Reading progress update: I've read 542 out of 1056 pages.

A Dance With Dragons - George R.R. Martin

102 pages in 24 hours - it's been a while since I've read a book this quickly O_o! There was so much exciting stuff happening, I really couldn't stop reading!


I enjoyed the Melisandre POV chapter a lot - I didn't think I would, since I don't particularly like her, but it was really interesting to see things from her perspective. And at least now I know that she really does believe in all the BS she spouts all the time (I wasn't totally convinced before ...).


I'm really becoming a fan of the Reek/Theon chapters - I feel like his redemption is imminent (pleaaaaase!) and I really can't wait for it! Hopefully he'll be able to help poor Jeyne in some way. I haven't finished the chapter which contains her wedding to Ramsay yet, but I feel like this can't end well for her. Particularly if it's true that Ramsay already knows that she isn't the real Arya.


Bran was really quite interesting as well - reading about the history of the greenseers was slightly tedious, but the visions he had of his family (presumably) through the centuries were amazing. I want more of that :D! I'm still trying to puzzle out who the white-haired woman might be (Can Bran maybe see into the future too? Is that Daenerys?) etc.


And lastly - Jon. Oh, Jon. my heart really breaks for him - he's so torn between saving his sister from a terrible fate and remaining true to his duty as the Commander of the Night's Watch ... he really is his father's son. (I do keep whispering "Go and save Arya!" at him though, as I'm reading ... :P)


Gah! I wish I could read even more quickly xD! I want to know what happens next! :)
