To each their own of course.

To book 4's credit, I enjoyed Jaime's, Brienne's and Sansa's chapters for the most part.

If I was reading before bed though and the next chapter was another fucking cercei chapter, i'd put the book down and go to bed. She's just such a tiring character to read through.

Everytime Samwell comes on screen I want to hit the "skip" button. Please tell me there's a fucking point to him.

There is?

Aside from him being a vehicle to deliver some plot, I don't recall him having any purpose other than being scared of everything and just being otherwise fat.

Couldn't GRRM have written a different character to achieve the same things as Sam, just in a skinnier, less annoying form?

No offense to fat people, but the writing really points out that Sam is two things and two things only, fat and craven.

Yeah why did GRRM feel the need to point out that Sam is fat in every sentence that describes him? It seems a bit weird.

I had to laugh when he killed the white(waight?)walker with the dagger and then dropped it and ran off. Clever dude, clever.

These are the kinds of things that make me start rooting for characters to die.

Not the kind of guy you want around during the zombie apocalypse.

Depends. All you have to do is be faster than him. He's big enough to provide enough distraction from the zombies for a while.

Oh fgs, that's not even out yet.

"Martin believes the two last volumes of the series will be big books of 1500+ manuscript pages each."

Jesus.

How old is this guy? He's going to croak before he finishes his story. And realistically, how is the TV series ever going to end? If it takes him another three years to get the sixth book out, and god only knows how many more years for the 7th (final?) one. The show is totally screwed.
