Spoiler Alert

When I started the fourth book just after my Pune vacation, I was warned that I won’t have the stories of some of my favorite characters in it and I was OK with it initially. Well, we have so many characters, I don’t think I will miss them, I thought. Now that I have finished A Feast for Crows, I do miss not knowing anything about Tyrion Lannister 😦 Not even a clue about where he and Varys went and what happened. Among others, I liked following Arya Stark more than Sansa Stark, even though both of them had to become some one else to just live. And both make use of their own strength to survive. One person whom I have come to accept is Jaime Lannister, even though I still don’t feel comfortable forgiving him for pushing Bran (I just am not able to let that go, may be because that was one episode I saw and it just stuck with me) but I do feel sorry for him now. The one person I have always detested and probably will detest for ever is Cersei. Whenever I finish some chapter and I get emotional and rant to my friend, he would just say, wait till you complete the book and then let us see how you feel about her. you have to read her perspective to know her. You know what, after reading the whole book, I still hate her. I can accept no excuses on her behalf. She is such a hard core narcissistic person (I had to refrain from cursing at this juncture). Thankfully I didn’t feel emotionally very sad for any one in this book as I had for Robb and Catelyn during the Red Wedding. But if I had a Ha! moment, it was when Cersei’s plan backfires. Man, I was so happy 🙂 Couldn’t wipe off that grin from my face for quite some time. I really relished reading that chapter. And a double Ha! moment, when Jaime reads her letter and ask his squire to throw it in the flames. I could have given him a hug for that.

I am going to take a break and start the 5th book from this Sunday. (That was mostly for my sake, so that I will not give in and start early).

    1. That is why I prefer Arya. She has the fighting spirit. I am not sure if she is naive or just plain stupid. And I will never forgive her for Ned.
      Sansa Stark sometimes reminds me of Bella of Twilight. Don’t know why.
