Default Re: A Song of Ice and Fire books

Personally, there's some stuff in book 5 that while not exactly moving the plot forward, is some of the best material I've ever read in novel. Theon's redemption alone is masterfully done.

It was meant to be amusing, but he and Ramsay became inseparable. I do wonder, though... was it Ramsay who corrupted Reek, or Reek Ramsay? ”
