    Holy Shit! I'm half way through book 3 and I just got to the point where
    Walder Frey has Robb and Catelyn murdered at the wedding night feast.
    Holy Shit!

    ever since i've been carrying the book around, i found that a lot of strangers open up discussion and it's always been very enjoyable.

    Yeah, can't wait to actually see that done in the TV show. Will be brutal, the outrage from fans over Ned's death has been pretty huge so this event... yeah.

    I just started book 4 a couple of nights ago. I was amazed at how much stuff went down in Book 3. I'm also amazed at how you don't get any warning before a major character dies.

    Man the red wedding was heart breaking. One of the reasons I like the series so much is for the lack of warning. It makes it that much more shocking. A certain someone being abruptly thrown out the moon definitely was shocking.

    Just finished Book 3:
    What the hell was with Caetlyn coming back from the dead? Is she the new Beric or is R'Hllor just propping up corpses left and right now?

    Beric passed along the "fire" inside him that was responsible for his continued reanimation to Catelyn.

    Did I miss that? Can you tell where to find that in the book? All I remember is Nymeria finding her and dragging her out of the river. I don't remember any mention of her after that.

    I don't believe it's stated explicitly, but the disappearance of Beric (and Thoros?) leads me to believe that is the case. Beric was tired of "living" after being killed so many times, and so he gave his magical fire-life to Catelyn.

    This was my initial assumption as well. I only asked because you presented it as if you had read it. I was wondering if my copy might have been missing a chapter or two!

    There's really no need to develop his character much past this point. He'll be gone by the middle of S2

    I always presumed he would return in some fashion.

    Thoros tells how it happened to Brienne near the very end of AFFC.

    Good. Maybe it'll finally make this book interesting at some point. God its been fucking boring as shit after the first 1/3.
