Book four is so tough to get through when you don't care about almost all of the featured characters.

Book 4 took me the longest to get through. I was reading like 2 chapters a day which is nothing compared to how many I read in book 3.

In my opinion the best characters to read are Cersei and Jamie. Cersei because this book exposes her for how much of a bad bitch she really is. Cersei is hands down the most manipulative, horrible woman character I have ever read. She makes Lady MacBeth look like a Nun. Jamie's chapters were great to me because it was interesting to see how much he matures as a character from book 1 to his last chapter in book 4.

And the last like 8 chapters so much is put in play that you can't wait to get into book 5. Some of the things being planned are so exciting that you have to pick up the next book right away to find out how things go down. I'm still early in book 5 so I couldn't say how they do.

Jaime has taken a complete 180 in just the beginning of the book. He really cares about his legacy all of a sudden, and I'm willing to bet It's because of Brienne.

I'm struggling with Book 4 as well.

Arya, who's been probably my favorite character, just feels off as this meek trainee.

I do agree that Cersei and Jamie are interesting. I've just spent so much time getting invested in all these characters, and they're just not here. No Jon, No Tyrion, No Dany. And all of a sudden I'm supposed to care about Victarion Greyjoy, whose actually pretty badass, but still. And all the early stuff with the Dornish was pretty cool, but again, I'm not invested in them.


My favorite chapter so far was the Sam chapter when he crossed paths with Arya. I love the moments when two characters perspective's cross, like the chapter where Jon and Bran are both in the Gift at the same time, and it's one of the best parts of the whole Red Wedding, that Arya and Catelyn are seeing it from different angles at once.

Just read the Daenerys chapter in "A Storm of Swords" when...
She was going to sell Drogon to buy the army of Unsullied. And then Drogon burns the slave trader and she has the Unsullieds kill all the slavers. That was some crazy shit! Not what I was expecting and it was pretty awesome. I would love to see that scene done correctly on the show.

Game of Thrones
Gemma Whelan, who has previously appeared in The Wolfman and Gulliver's Travels, has reportedly been cast as Theon Greyjoy's older sister, called Asha in the books but renamed Yara to avoid sounding too similar to the already-cast Osha. The character "defies the Ironborn traditions of her family, by commanding her own ship and leading men into battle, as well as having a penchant for axes." [EW]

British theater actor Nonso Anozie has reportedly been cast as the Qartheen merchant-prince Xaro Xhoan Daxos.

Quote:
As first reported by Westeros.Org, British actor Nonso Anozie will play Xaro Xhoan Daxos, a wealthy merchant who takes in Daenerys, the members of her khalasar (the Dothraki that stuck with her after the death of husband Khal Drogo), and her knight, Ser Jorah Mormont (Iain Glenn), and becomes an adviser of sorts.

i was expecting someone womanlier for Asha

Asha cast is perfect and I still dont get the name change, Osha was never even called by name in the show. If we ask ppl here who have only watched the show I dont think anyone of them could refer to her by name. Even if thats the case, you dont change the name of a major character over a minor one and its not like the writers did not know Asha was gonna show up and are now stuck with that problem.

let me ask u guys a question. If i skip to where the HBO series ended where would that be in the books, and would i be missing out on a lot? i think this was maybe asked somewhere earlier in this thread but i'm not about to wade thru it, and it wasn't relevant at the time so i didn't bother to remember.

just sux reading stuff i already saw happened, want to get to stuff that is new.

thx

Season one ends pretty much dead in line with the end of book one.

It's a pretty easy read though, and worth going through. You'll get a lot more detail out of the book, even though the show did an excellent job translating.
