He also looks legitimately slow. Or at least his face radiates that role of being mentally ill

Question for book readers.

I am almost done with the third book which is terrific.

I now realize that season 4 will mostly be about the third book because so much shit is happening.

I keep hearing everywhere that a Feast for Crows and Dance with Dragons are boring.

I just want to hear some opinions from those who have read them.

I wouldn't say they are boring, it's still fantastic to read anything about this saga IMO. However, Feast for Crows does a complete 180 from the first 3 books. Three of the most important characters don't receive any chapters (Jon, Tyrion, and Dany). It mainly focuses on the Lannisters, and the storylines developing in Dorne and the Iron Islands.

Dance with Dragons is a great book and it gets back to the other major characters.

I'd rate them like this: SoS > GoT > DwD > CoK > FfC

I personally didn't like AFFC as much as the other books. That being said, it did have its good parts and it sets up a lot of stuff. I loved ADWD.

Season finale was weak. I enjoyed the Borgias season finale so much better.

I haven't gotten around to reading a Dance with Dragons yet, but I can say that a Feast for Crows is quite boring. I'm struggling right now getting through the chapters. It's probably because they're introducing a handful of new characters.

Looked online the guy is doing a movie to finish it. He said another 10 episodes is exhausting so they rather use the same actors and do a 2hr movie to finish it up. Makes sense, I can live with that because I dont know how much you will want to drag out this season. But I enjoyed it tho. Will go see movie as well.

Exactly. The Theon scenes were kind of pointless this season, but that actor was perfectly cast. I can't wait to see him in scenes that matter.

It's sad that they decided to split AFoC into FoC and ADwD because there is an excellent single volume hidden in those two books.
