    Wouldn't it have been cool if...

    I kind of like how this scene was handled, being from a 3rd party point of view, witnessing a degraded Ned. You just get these sense that he was disoriented being in the black cells and being driven half mad. Then mustering strength to speak loudly while getting hit with rocks. So its well done that you kind of see him dying weakened and without his wits amongst a near riot for the most part. Just kind of sudden and primal.

    Anyone else not interested in Jon's chapters?

    I feel like many of the chapters in first half of CoK is kind of Grind-Tastic (although I still really like the entry). A series of long journeys early on with the great ranging and Yoren's march. You have Tyrion setting up pieces for a long while, as well as the detail behind Shae and Tyrion's "relationship". A couple huge information-dump chapters on the Iron Islands. All the setting up the pins, as well as the back-stories sets everything up marvelously. Not a word is wasted

    Favorite POV Character

    My favorite are the Eddard POVs. I love how impatient he is with everyone's games and wordplay. Just wants everything and everyone to be straight forward and to the point. That is kind of like myself. I chuckle at these moments " The question of who might win the tourney interested Eddard Stark not in the least." “He had no patience with this game they played, this dueling with words” "He had no taste for these intrigues, but he was beginning to realize that they were meat and mead to a man like Littlefinger" "He wishes he (Clever Lannister) were here now so he can wrankle the truth out of this damnable book" (something like that).
