  1. Love the re-read for Storm of Swords. Two thoughts/questions. I’m going to say semi-SPOILERS AHEAD here for anyone who has not read beyond SoS, so beware and read this comment at your own risk….


    regarding the Stark kids and warging…. you questioned, briefly, whether Rob had warged into his wolf at all. You know, we didn’t get a mention in the book about it but think abou this — what if Rob DID warg into his wolf when he was killed at the Red Wedding. What if he was in Grey Wind when the Freys killed him after killing the wedding party? Double stabby in the heart for Stark fans, right?! Ugh.

    And another out there theory. The series is called “song of ice and fire” – could that literally be the song that Rhaegar plays (I think during the tourney time before he steals her away), the song that makes her cry?

    Thanks for doing the re-read. Have you thought about reading the next two novels – Feast and Dance – in tandem (as they will probably be filmed by timeline). I’m rereading both combined as the timeline dictates and am really getting a lot more out of it than reading the two books separate.

    thanks for all you do!

  2. Ding ding! Here we go! Round three of the critically acclaimed and ridiculously successful Cast of Thrones Book Club! Time for endless talk of menstruation, medieval birth control, and ancient medical texts!
