I've never read any of his books, but I always enjoyed reading Mike Royko's columns back in the day. Maybe I'll have to give this one a shot.
I just finished it a couple of days ago. I really enjoyed it.
And yet it's "Jon" Snow, not "John" Snow. Rich brother taking the bastard's extra consonant allocation. Totally unfair.
GRRM expects a lot from his readers, I think. I think that's a good thing, though. The story certainly holds up to multiple readings.
Reading this thread has made me realize how much stuff I missed/don't remember from reading the books, so a couple of days ago I started re-reading the series from the beginning. I'm amazed at how much stuff is in there that GRRM hinted at from the very beginning chapters. It's pretty clear he did a LOT of world-building before starting this series. I'm enjoying my re-reading quite a bit and plan to take my time and pay greater attention to the details this time.
Sorry, I hadn't realized that this four-year-old thread was all about you now.

Hey--me too!
I'm not sure anyone noticed my last posts about my 1975 BMW 2002, but I finally got it back today from the interior shop, which installed the carpet and a new headliner. The car is just about finished, other than some very minor details.
