So...I've just happened upon this blog, which is why I'm replying to a very old entry (that and it does not have comments numbering in the hundreds like the more recent ones). It's late, I'm tired, and so I'll just say a few things. Mr. Martin, you rock. Simple as that. I discovered Ice & Fire just this summer (yes, I know, how did I NOT discover it earlier?) and was blown away. I never put those books down. If every page was laminated I probably would have taken the books into the shower. I do hope that came off as a compliment and not just someone who is being rather creepy...

Anyway. Awesome. Your characters are so amazingly three dimensional and deep that they feel more real then some of the people I know. I could rave about each of them but I wont just yet. I just want to say that you get the award for most unexpected favorite character with Jaime Lannister. Usually I will lock onto a character from the very begining and stick with them for the entire thing. But no, I hated Jaime in the first couple of books...and now he's my favorite character, hands down. I totally didn't see that one coming. Don't know exactly how honored you'll feel seeing as I just made up this award...but congradulations anyway!

And in response to Anonymous...I found myself skimming through some of the secondary character chapters, then hit myself and went back and read them fully because damn it, I KNOW you must have a good reason for putting them there and so I put my suspense and the ADD child in me on the backburner and read them. And was not disappointed.

Anyway, will be sure to read everything else you've cooked up.

Ta ta!
