Just Concluded the "Wedding" Portion of ASoS (Spoilers)

Recommended Posts

I just read the False King Joffrey's Wedding chapter and I feel somewhat relieved that that monster is now gone. It seems, for all intents and purposes, that Lady Melisandre's prophecy has come true and now three Kings lie dead.

It's funny, I thought Joffrey's inevitable death would make me feel more light-hearted and hopeful, but after watching the noble House Stark brought to ruin and King Stannis shamed and defeated, Joffrey's death was little consolation.

So far, A Storm of Swords has been one of the best pieces of literature I've ever had the pleasure of reading. Few are the books that have torn at my emotions in the way that ASoS has. Reading this series, and this book in particular, has been an experience I will never forget.

I'm probably going to stay up all night in order to finish the book.

What's crazy is how much awesome stuff you have left to read, even after all you've read already. It's definitely worth it to stay up and finish it off.

It was totally worth the late hours to finish it. There were so many revelations concerning plot threads introduced in A Game of Thrones (Tyrion's first wife, the truth of Jon Arryn's death, the truth behind the attempt on Bran's life). I completely understand why a decent portion of the fan-base consider A Storm of Swords to be the best in the series.

I love how you called him, "The False King Joffrey"!!! :cheers:

I've just begun reading, 'A Storm Of Swords', but I know about the important parts. I will definitely be re-reading the book.
