no bran, jon, daenarys, or tyrion in book 4. that's why it was my least favorite.

book 4 is mostly events in king's landing and dorne. book 5 deals with the eastern continent and the wall and brings everything together

I think I'm going to pick up the pace on Book 4 alottt because I can't wait to get to book 5. I cant say how many pages im in because I have it as an e-book but I think I'm farther then everyone else who's currently reading book 4.

A brief review:
It was a bitch to read when it came to Dany, Jon, Tyrion, Quentyn and even Arya's chapters. When reading them I felt like I was reading the same chapters all over again. I never thought I would ever find Jon, Tyrion or Arya's chapters ever boring or repetitive...
Dany was either mooning over Daario or acting like a bitch, her transformation back to the girl she was in AGOT and ACOK only made her previous development to a queen the more ridiculous. Jon's chapters were all about saving wildlings and Bowen Marsh's scowls. Tyrion kept being passed around from captivity to another one. Quentyn's plot line was useless as bulltits.Theon, Davos, Bran and Griff saved ADWD from becoming a disaster though.

they both died due to the tragedy at summerhall.
it takes place a few generations before the current stories.


Aemon mentions egg a time or two.

I'm at 350 in book four, which is a little different than it was for me because I switched to hardcover and there aren't as many pages. But anyway:

Arys Oakheart just died.

I like the Dornishmen characters, the whole culture of it all, but something needs to happen up there other than them just griping about prince Doran. The Brienne stuff was starting to drag for me, but it got a good shot in the arm last night when she reached the whispers. And I'm torn on Arya in the house of Black and White. I like fiesty headstrong Arya.

Dont expect much from AFFC, its the weakest among the 5. Dorne people are one of my favorites as well. Book 3 spoiler in white:
Oberyn had mad swag!

So I went on a huge tear and read a bunch of pages a few nights back but never finished off the book... Then all of a sudden Renly is alive?!!?!!? What the f*ck is going on here... gonna try like hell to finish the last 80 pages tonight. Will this be addressed by the end of the second book (Renly still being alive).

It's not really adressed for a while. I could explain it to you if you like.
