:whistle:


You forgot "must be be able to swing a broad sword and stay in the saddle".

They should just find a slightly feminine looking man to play the part. Like to ad they found to play King Arthur in Camelot on Star's. Now there is a girly man..

So I'm halfway through Swords and I was skimming this morning didn't have a lot of time. I'm at Edmunds wedding feast, I have to go back and reread it much slower and in detail.
But I assume that did read it correctly?

Poor Arya so close yet????

A lot of people stopped reading the series after that...


I can see why. I'll pick up book 4 but probably put it aside until later this summer. There's some other stuff I want to read.

When is book 5 supposed to be out?

I didn't the fourth book was all that good but I will reread it. I am currently rereading "A Game of Thrones" along with each episode. I am almost to the point where Ned gets stabbed in the leg (which the series did last week). Its amazing how close to the book the show is, even if they have had to cut out a LOT of minor characters.


Having only seen the one episode and having read book one about the same time, I do have to agree with you it was very close indeed.
Maybe more books turned into movies will be like that, I know that True Blood in the show they've changed things from the books. I haven't watched season 3 yet I'm still waiting for my friend to download it for me. :roll:

Ok Phil I know this is a stupid question but it just occurred to me.

When Roose Bolton excused himself from the wedding feast did he know what was going to happen?

page 883 I had tears when I turned the page. I didn't thumb ahead to see after your warning above.
But I did have a funny feeling all along that Littlefinger had a plan for Sansa He's a devious one that one is.

what ever happened to Jeyne Pool Sansa's little friend? Did Littlefinger kill her or sell her into one of his brothels?

No I bet she is the impostor girl they sent off to Marry the Bolton Bastard after the Bloody Wedding.
Maybe in Book 5 we find out? :-k
