<Book 4: A Feast for Crows:: *finished*>

I'm really short of words... After the penultimate Brienne chapter where Brienne the Beauty fought Rorge and Biter, when she made that stand to draw away the last band of the Bloody Mummers from the kids at the Crossroads Inn, knowing it would be the death of her... I literally got heart-sick. For an instance there, i forgot i was reading GRRM fiction and actually wished luck would intervene. I've read all this before but it still ate me up inside what she went through. By the last Brienne chapter, she was almost entirely broken inside, the Brotherhood were totally broken, and then Lady Stoneheart gave her that choice of the devil or the deep blue sea... The sheer hopelessness of it all.

"Justice." Thoros smiled wanly. "I remember justice. It had a pleasant taste. Justice was what we were about when Beric led us, or so we told ourselves. We were king's men, knights, heroes... but some knights are dark and full of terror, my lady. War makes monsters of us all."

-------------

Of note is Jaime's dream at Riverrun. <pg 693/767> I totally missed this on my first read years ago, and strangely i don't recall ever coming across its mention on any online wikia/forum.

That night he dreamt that he was back in the Great Sept of Baelor, still standing vigil over his father’s corpse. The sept was still and dark, until a woman emerged from the shadows and walked slowly to the bier. “Sister?” he said.
But it was not Cersei. She was all in grey, a silent sister. A hood and veil concealed her features, but he could see the candles burning in the green pools of her eyes. “Sister,” he said, “what would you have of me?” His last word echoed up and down the sept, mememememememememememe.
“I am not your sister, Jaime.” She raised a pale soft hand and pushed her hood back. “Have you forgotten me?”
Can I forget someone I never knew? The words caught in his throat. He did know her, but it had been so long...
“Will you forget your own lord father too? I wonder if you ever knew him, truly.”
Her eyes were green, her hair spun gold. He could not tell how old she was. Fifteen, he thought, or fifty. She climbed the steps to stand above the bier. “He could never abide being laughed at. That was the thing he hated most.”
“Who are you?” He had to hear her say it.
“The question is, who are you?”
“This is a dream.”
“Is it?” She smiled sadly. “Count your hands, child.”
One. One hand, clasped tight around the sword hilt. Only one. “In my dreams I always have two hands.” He raised his right arm and stared uncomprehending at the ugliness of his stump.
“We all dream of things we cannot have. Tywin dreamed that his son would be a great knight, that his daughter would be a queen. He dreamed they would be sostrong and brave and beautiful that no one would ever laugh at them.”
“I am a knight,” he told her, “and Cersei is a queen.”
A tear rolled down her cheek. The woman raised her hood again and turned her back on him. Jaime called after her, but already she was moving away, her skirt whispering lullabies as it brushed across the floor. Don’t leave me, he wanted to call, but of course she’d left them long ago...

I strongly think the hooded woman is his mother, Joanna, beloved of Tywin, who died birthing Tyrion. Any thoughts, any one? Wonder what's the significance of this dream...

----------------

And of course there were usual GRRM easter eggs... there was a member of the Brotherhood right under Jaime's nose at Riverrun; he even had nice good chat with the naughty old outlaw! But the best hidden egg for me was the dog named Dog (wink-wink!!) meeting the "novice gravedigger" back at the septry on Quiet Isle.

...and higher still they passed a lichyard where a brother bigger than Brienne was struggling to dig a grave. From the way he moved, it was plain to see that he was lame. As he flung a spadeful of the stony soil over one shoulder, some chanced to spatter against their feet. "Be more watchful there," chided Brother Narbert. "Septon Meribald might have gotten a mouthful of dirt." The gravedigger lowered his head. When Dog went to sniff him, he dropped his spade and scratched his ear.

Of course there's a gaping hole here: how the heck did both Brienne and Ser Hyle miss the huge burn scar on his face? Nobody who's ever laid eyes on the Hound misses that scar. But hey, i liked the tale so i'm not complaining.

--------

I think of the first four books of the series, AFFC is the most underated. It doesn't have much of the screened gallantry and likable characters that the first three books had, but there's so much deeper meaning in this book. It is here we finally meet a true knight but we barely recognize what we are shown because, surprise! the knight is a woman, is ugly, and isn't that smart after all. Funny how much of real life is actually like that, too.

Next up, A Dance with Dragons.

This last season might be the only thing we get in terms of any form of conclusion for the books. I know I can't be arsed about the books after this sha. As an aside, I hate how Euron has been made into some dude that is just looking for se.x with the Queen.

Right? I remember people holding twitter polls about the most horrible GoT character, it was funny that Euron didn't even get a mention at all.

Hahaha, this Sam and Edd conversation from the book is very funny. the show would have been more fun if they added more of Edd with original conversations from the book.

“Never knew Bannen could smell so good.” Edd’s tone was as morose as ever. “I had half a mind to carve a slice off him. If we had some applesauce, I might have done it. Pork’s always best with applesauce, I find.” Edd undid his laces and pulled out his rooster. “You best not die, Sam, or I fear I might succumb. There’s bound to be more crackling on you than Bannen ever had, and I never could resist a bit of crackling.” He sighed as his piss arced out, yellow and steaming. “We ride at first light, did you hear? Sun or snow, the Old Bear tells me.”
Sun or snow. Sam glanced up anxiously at the sky. “Snow?” he squeaked. “We … ride? All of us?”
“Well, no, some will need to walk.” He shook himself. “Dywen now, he says we need to learn to ride dead horses, like the Others do. He claims it would save on feed. How much could a dead horse eat?” Edd laced himself back up. “Can’t say I fancy the notion. Once they figure a way to work a dead horse, we’ll be next. Likely I’ll be the first too. ‘Edd,’ they’ll say, ‘dying’s no excuse for lying down no more, so get on up and take this spear, you’ve got the watch tonight.’ Well, I shouldn’t be so gloomy. Might be I’ll die before they work it out.”

To be hinestbibsee the books taking another dimension from the TV show. That would be interesting.
