I'm lucky in that I just started reading Feast of Crows last week. I just started to read these books in September thanks to friends who badgered me for a long time to read them. Truly the best i have read. Equal to Lord of the Rings in terms of importance to the genre and just as involved and complex. Tolkien's story was not as complex as the world and alphabets/languages/etc. he created whereas your story and characters are very complex and I can never figure out where you are going with anyone. I don't know what I am saying now... They are just too good. No way could 3 movies cover this. Not even 10 could do it. Looking forward to finishing Crows and buying Dance of Dragons as soon as it is available. And the HBO take on it. I am actually enjoying Crows a lot in that I am getting a break from the "main" group of characters and meeting new ones. I hope to meet you someday. You have been an inspiration to me.
