So, I just happened upon a chapter in ‘A Storm of Swords’ today that I’d not been looking forward to reading. I’d had this particular event spoiled for me quite early on so I knew it was coming. Worry not those who wish to avoid spoilers, this will be as vague as it possibly could be. As a heads up, its the Red……
Knowing what was going to happen before it happened was worse than if it had been a surprise. This way, I spent every other sentence for about three chapters thinking ‘No, don’t do that, get out of there, don’t let them do that, get that thing back, turn around, fly you fools’.
Not even a cup of tea and a scone made the bitter pill any sweeter….
I don’t even particularly like the characters involved. I mean, one of the Houses sure, but not really the characters. It’s the way it happens. Just plain wrong. There is something which is broken; and to me, something like that should never be broken. Gives me goosebumps.
