Unless you want to be thrown into the black cells, spoiler tags will be used as follows:

Put your spoiler in its own paragraph, and precede it with the title of the book it's from. Example:


AGOT: Jon Arryn dies

ACOK: Tyrion bangs Shae

ASOS: Tormund's member. HAR!

AFFC: HODOR

ADWD: HODOR HODOR


Then you can go on typing. Hide yo shit properly. Don't be a dick.

I'm going to have to buy it also, because the libraries are backlogged.

I should probably wait until after my repeats to start a dance with dragons. I doubt I'll be able to last a month knowing it's out though.

Dance is quite good! At least a hundred pages in, don't know how the rest will be. :)
Am excited though!

How far is everybody?
Is a discussion with spoilers possible?

I finished Dance about a week ago. Spoiler discussion is ok, just keep it all between spoiler tags.

Alright.

ADWD: I liked the book. It was good. But in the end, I was disappointed, mainly because cliffhangers. Then because I realized that nothing happens in the beginning, something, tiny bits happen in the middle and the end just felt rushed to me. "For the wall" come on, you know better than that! You stupid people you! Maybe this just pisses me off because I like Jon a lot.
Aside from that half of the chapters weren't that interesting, Daenerys was a bit boring most times, Bran wasn't in there enough. I mean this is a 900 page book, there should be enough space for ALL the characters and not only for two. But I might be nitpicking to. In the end it just annoys me that the wait only opened up more questions.

I feel like Dance and Feast should have been consolidated to one book, as was originally intended. There was seriously no need for it to be split into two fluffy volumes. So much of it felt like useless filler, in both books.

I liked Dance, but it was definitely my least favorite in the series. Just felt like it didn't go anywhere.

Just finished Dance. I agree that it didn't go anywhere, but then I didn't expect it to.

I never liked Jon that much but I was pretty sad that he died. I have a feeling that he'll be zombified by millisandre though.

I really enjoyed those last podcasts you guys did on the book.
Was quite interesting and I agree to the case with Jon...

I saw a Game of Thrones back in July, I think. Liked it enough I read all the books, too. Even got my momma to read them and she NEVER reads fantasy stuff. She's been reading them for I guess three months or so now, she's a bit of a slow reader.

Reading A Feast of Crows and I am so bored with it. Like I don't care what's happening on the Iron Islands or in Dorne.  Plus I absolutely hate Cersei and chapters make me hate her even more.

Not gonna read any other part of this thread, but I bought all of the books save for the new one. Unfortunately, they're the small paperback versions. I prefer large hardcover ones. But the pack I got was the same price as a single hardcover, so it's not so bad.

Large Hardcovers are much harder to read. Tehy don't do well in bathtubs, which is a huge minus. The Dance with Dragons hardcover was what poushed bag weight at the airport over the limit.
