  1. If you are rereading because you want to re-read for enjoyment or to pick up points you missed, then go for it. If you want to re-read in preparation for TWOW, I would wait until there is some kind of official announcement. It might come.out in a year, five years or never. I reread them years ago in anticipation of TWOW but I have forgotten many of the details so I will need to re-read IF the book is ever sent to print. I am no longer holding my breath though.
  2. Ned tells Cat the truth about Jon. Maybe it just changes Cat’s feelings or it could make a big change in the story so Jon does not take the black.
  3. Would love a POV from a White Walker. They play such a large part of the story but they remain a mystery for me.
  4. Well, we do not know how GRRM is going to write it so hopefully it will be better than D&D. We do have a glimpse of GRRM showing Danny’s inner conflict when she is talking to the grass questioning what she is and her final answer is Fire and Blood. This IMO is excellent foreshadowing by GRRM but is lacking in the show.
  5. Littlefinger cares just about Littlefinger. He couldn’t care less what Tyrion may have done with Tysha unless he could use it to his advantage. Also, Tyrion told Bronn and Shae, he probably told others also. Shae he had just met and he was blabbering about it. Poor poor Tyrion, I am sure he wanted people to feel sorry for him because of his father. I am also sure the guardsmen would brag about it after a few drinks, even if they were sworn to secrecy.
  6. How will you feel if you do a reread and book 6 is never released (let alone book 7)? Myself, I might do a quick reread but only after book 6 is released and if the reviews are good. In the meantime, there are plenty of other good books to read IMO.
  7. For me, to many new POVs and IMO way to much meandering, especially with Tyrione and Brienne. I understand what GRRM was trying to do but they were still very boring to me. In Dance, on 2nd read, I realized Dany’s last chapter is extremely important in that it shows her character arc changing while talking to the “grass”. I missed that on 1st read but overall, some good chapters but to many new POVs and to many slow moving chapters that don’t seem to move the plot along.
  8. Why does everyone assume Sansa will not have children. She was concerned about Bran being a ruler and not having an heir so that tells me she plans on getting married and having an heir. I do not believe she would even have to marry for love. She married TYRION AND Ramsey not for love so I think if she found someone she liked and would be a good father/husband and respected she would gladly get married. As far as to your questions regarding the North’s independence, I do not have a clue.
  9. RYshh, Wow, did you even read your hidden post? 1. The man himself says you can not answer what if question with any certainty so he does not really know. 2. He would have tried to find some way to disentangle himself from a LOSING situation. This is only logical for anyone unless you are very tied to the losing person. And then he says it would have been in a LESS SAVAGE form. That tells me he would not murder the husband of his daughter, if they would have married. 3. The red wedding was to wash away the dishonor done to him. Walker destroyed Robb because of the dishonor Robb did him. Not because it is in the Frey character. This implies if Robb had went through with the promise marriage, Walter would NOT killed Robb and would have fully supported Robb until it became clear that Robb was going to lose the war. Heck, if it became clear that Robb was going to lose, most of the other northern lords probably would have started conspiring to get a new leader. That is not in the books but there already are signs of dissatisfaction with Robb.
  10. What does this stupid back and forth have to do with the OP? This thread has turned into the the worst thread I have seen on this forum. If you need more than 3 post to prove your point, it is time to give it up.
  11. If I had a do over I would not read it because I am tired of waiting for another book that will never come. I feel certain the show ending is the only ending we will get and it is pretty much the bullet points Martin gave them. They obviously made some modifications but the final result is basically the same. IF he does FINISH the series, do not hold your breath, then come back to this forum and ask your question. Thanks to Martin, I do not read any series anymore unless the series is complete.
  12. He cared just about his family and had the hots later on for Brienne. He came up with the story of his inner conflict to justify his action. Tormend said something to Jon about Jon belongs in the North. Did Bran send Jon North knowing that is where Jon wanted to be.
  13. Somewhere on this site GRRM was quoted in 2015 talking about getting rid of the 5 year gap and he would do it even if it meant a 12 year old would sit on the throne. He also has mentioned other times that there are to many clues in the early books to change the ending. I think they knew from early on who would sit on the throne at the end. I blame GRRM for this mess for not finishing the books. Maybe the problem is on how to write the story to put a 12 year old on the throne.
  14. I think with the original 5 year gap that GRRM did plan on Bran being about 17 years old and becoming king. I guess we will never know if he changed his plans unless he just comes out and tells us his concept of the ending now. No, we will never get a resolution in book form.
