Okay, the blind Arya chapter was pretty good. Standard stuff, but well-done and wittily-written, with some nice use of internal rhymes.

Ok, I'm about 3/4s through and Dany is really pissing me off. Why is Martin having her appear so weak? Is it just because she's a girl?

But I am happy that the reconquering of Westeros is finally under way. I'm just waiting on something to happen to screw it all up because a character won't make what should be an easy decision.

So what?

That part of being a dwarf always repelled him. And he did put up a little bit of a stink but then a couple of pages later there he was on the back of the pig.

Tyrion considers himself a walking dead man, just staying alive out of spite and to see how the gods will dispose of him. He doesn't think he has any dignity to maintain anymore.

I can see that.

I just don't like the idea of Tyrion falling so low and it pains me to see him have to do some of things he's had to recently.

Invoking his name (sort of) across the continent almost got him out of the being sold as a slave to a Yunkish lord.
