The one I turned to like mostly because he found remorse and I actually want him to be there in the end fighting on the Stark side and continue his redemption is Sandor Clegane. I was surprised myself when I found myself liking him more towards the end of this book. He was really upset about leaving Sansa in KL even though he won't admit it and he loved her, but not as he loved Arya. He loved Sansa like a love interest and Arya as a daughter. I thought it interesting he found some peace in the Mountain village and felt bad for him that they wanted him gone as his reputation preceded him even there. He tried and did not gallop around trying to get her to some family where he could have left her at the Twins. I think Sandor would have been a good person for Robb's side as Sandor deduced the situation rather quickly at the Twins. I cannot forgive him for Mycah, but he did seem remorseful for it after he encountered Polliver and Tickler and he was injured. I knew in the end he was trying to provoke Arya, so she would kill him as crying and begging for pain did not work. I think he was in emotional pain as well as physical. If he survives till the end hopefully "The Hound" part of him died and a new kind of hound emerged that would be a good fighter for the Others. I could not stand Stannis in this book, nor Melisandre. I did like Sansa towards the end, but I worry for her being in Littlefingers clutches and she thinks everyone is dead and no one will marry her for love. Jaime changed a little, but there is also something behind his good acts, so i could not change my opinion about him. I like Jon and liked him even more this book. Cersei is insane and hope she falls and I liked how the Lannisters have set themselves for their house to fall and others with them who rely on the Lannisters for "protection" especially now that Tyrion had the balls to kill his father. Tyrion, I never liked except when he got the balls to kill Tywin and how interesting Tywin was all up in arms about him and whores only to die with a Whore. I fear what change has occurred in Tyrion and he is right and that he is his father's son just smaller. Arya I liked, but she is young to understand some things and too young to know things a little girl should not. Lysa I knew was crazy since book 1 and I wondered if Littlefinger had anything to do with her madness like if he poisoned her etc.. I was hoping Prince Oberyn would be around longer and cause more trouble for the Lannisters and Tyrells. I liked that he had sense and that Tyrion was made to look too guilty and everything served on a platter that he deduced he was innocent. I hope Jaime realized Tyrion was lying about killing Joffrey, but he was telling the truth about Cersei. I liked that Jaime stood up to both Tywin and Cersei and not be their puppet and I liked that he loved his little brother and saved him.
