protar Posted February 6, 2012 Share Posted February 6, 2012 Don't agree with you . Note that the "one-book" POV that died (the Queen make, forgot his name , and the Doran prince) were not placed in the "crowded" area to begin with . Or they were placed there but were not POV. Martin start with them and kill them soon after.There was no situation were at the start of the book - there is "too much" POV in one place so one of them is killed.I think you've misunderstood my post. I wasn't talking about POV's being killed off to trim down the story (though that could happen.). I was saying that every major death has a point and isn't just for shock value. Whereas from what you're saying Martin doesn't kill for plot efficiency. But he does. I can't think of one major death which doesn't serve a purpose to get the story moving along faster.
