The Weirwoods Eyes Posted November 13, 2013 Share Posted November 13, 2013 I think you are right Ygrain. I never really thought about Reading comprehension, or should I say I never thought the people I've been asking about who they think Jon Snow's mother is might have low reading comprehension. Probably because I have no college or University education and so have never learnt how to understand literature formally, learning purely through reading the greats it just never struck me that not everyone does grasp how story telling works or how a tale is layered up. Also the power of denial is strong. Very Strong. A lot of people just don't want Jon to be anything special. but for me it was a no brainer. I clicked it and then it all just made so so much sense, re reading the relevant sections knowing the truth makes it crystal clear.It makes me sad for those who just see a story and don't experience all the layers.
