Finished book 2

Book 2 (end)

Different than the series, which I think i might rewatch season 1 and 2 before starting 3rd book later today. I dont remember winterfell burning in the series...maybe i just missed that. And subtle but very noticeable differences about jon and bran/rickon...cant wait for 3

late book 3:

was kind of mad when dany dismisses jorah, and really surprised when stannis rapes mance above the wall. he is so duty oriented its hilarious. petyr marrying lysa and her loving the idea was kind of meh, and it pissed me off how joffrey died, there i said it. i wanted him to be raped by 200000 men, not choke for 10 seconds and die drunk. oh well, i have 100 pages left, ill finish that today i suppose

i find myself rewatching season 1 episodes and making exact comparisons to the book

i really liked it a lot more in book 1 where the hands tourney was 2 days, and sandor explained his burn to sansa directly when he escorted her home

the whole investigation about jon arryn and bobby b's bastards is also much more natural in the book

Book 3 pg 250ish

So, robb threw away his army and beheaded guys for killing the 2 squires it seems....arya is trekking around trying to get back to her mom at riverrun and stannis is sitting in dragonstone doing nothing but with that crazy red bitch. Everything seems to be building up nicely...and the wight walkers, Others, etc seem to of fucked some shit up for the nights watch

Book 3 (end)

So I texted spencer about this cuz it was making me scratch my head. Tywin melts down Ice and has 2 swords made from it. I thought that you could no longer make vlaryian steel blades and if you melted it down, nobody would know how to reforge it with the 100's of foldings and shit? Also, gz to tyrion shootin his dad and the "I guess he doesnt shit gold"

40% through book 2, right about where i left off with the show (s2e5 maybe)

"These are no Lannisters, my liege. It's Lord Stannis at your gates. King Stannis, he calls himself now."

the book version overall makes more sense every time

book 2

ex, i just finished the arya chapter where they get raided
in the show its just city watch v2, and you dont really know where they are
in the book its a.lorch and twyins anti beric raiders
you know exactly where they are (by gods eye -- they cant cross the river and they cant go east back to kingsroad), and that they want to go to harrenhal (they dont know that tywin is there)
in the show it was just like oh were back from the first time looking for gendry again and oh by the way were taking you to harrenhal but you dont know where that is or why it matters

yeah i agree, imma go through and rewatch the season2 knowing what i know from reading the others to see what i missed from the books of s2 itself as well as forshadowing future events in the series that i know to be coming

rewatched s2e1
dont really like the way the dragonstone scenes were all changed around, davos only has 1 son instead of like 7, no selyse, etc
also dont like that the idea to go chat with renly in the stormlands was robbs idea in the show but catelyns in the book
but most of all, having maester cresson at the burning of the statues of the 7 made the least sense considering the reason stannis did that was because he saw melisandre survive drinking the poison (which in itself is backwards -- she drinks first in the book and almost drinks the whole thing)

spoiler tags not really necessary

and
in book 1, neds message to stannis never reaches him because fat tom is killed
in the book he sends out like 117 ravens and even has davos sail to personally deliver the incest message through parts of the realm
he makes the claim based on his own conclusions from when him and jon arryn were going to the brothels

not sure if spoiler needed end book 1/season1 and 2

did sansa ever in the book go out to cersei and say that that her dad was planning on leaving and writing to stannis? I dont remember that in either apart from cersei just saying "it was innocence that made her tell me when she was stil in love with joffery"

i just reread it
cersei brings it up in past tense when she meets with her to write the letters
sansa says something like "but i love him", and cersei says something like "i know, thats why you told me what your father was doing", and she replies "he wouldnt even let me see him before we left"
this pretty much implies that sansa told cersei before the beginning of the POV ("off screen"), which makes sense considering why she was locked in her room for 3 days

another great sandor clegane ripoff from book to show (sandor/sansa moment turned into a littlefinger/sansa moment): "were all liars, and every one of us is better than you"

book 2 all from a completely show omitted part of sansas story arc with ser dontos / escaping KL

book 2 is getting so good that i find myself reading it for hours
at the end of every chapter im liked "damn, i want it to keep going"
then a new chapter starts and picks back up a different part of the story

its especially awesome that i just read the bran chapter where he meets the reeds... they seem cool as shit

book 2 is getting so good that i find myself reading it for hours
at the end of every chapter im liked "damn, i want it to keep going"
then a new chapter starts and picks back up a different part of the story

its especially awesome that i just read the bran chapter where he meets the reeds... they seem cool as shit


reeds are badass imo


and completely left out of the TV show

yeah, but shes really not that bad looking in the show, considering theon is the ugliest man on the planet

pretty sure im on the catelyn chapter where theyre going to parley with stannis
arya just gave her first name
and tyrion is being a boss all over KL (just about every other chapter, kind of like eddard in book 1)
ive also had 2 dany and 1 davos chapter in ~30, so i think i look forward to those the most
