Idk if it's just the way this narrator is doing the voice, but he's really making Gendry seem like a dullard. Almost Hodor stupid. I'm up to the part where Arya, Gendry, Hotpie, and a few other boys are all that's left of their night's watch pack and are foraging for food

A Dance with Dragons details from the man himself. Very interesting stuff here. Touches on lots of POVs we can expect.

I also have the audio books, Roy Dotrice voices more than 500 different characters. I think it's a world record or something.

Yeah fortunately we'll get an Arya chapter in Dance. We will probably have to wait on the Brienne cliffhanger though.

Oh yeah, and that Brinne cliffhanger. I truly hope that she's not dead. After A Storm of Swords it's quite refreshing that the events is in a more slow pace, for Cersei's chapters I thought I'm going to hate it but it's nice to get an insight inside the character, actually. I like most of the new characters (Greyjoys, eh) but I gotta admit it'll be nice getting the rest of the characters back. I'm so excited.

Just finished Clash of Kings. At the end, Osha says something like "We must leave, the smell of death will bring wolves and not all on 4 feet".

Is she talking about what I think she's talking bout? And tell me you get to see them!

And if somebody could clear something up for me:
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Theon just lied about killing Bran and Rickon? My audio book was missing a few chapters. Where did he get bodies to burn?

Oh, that would explain why he kept thinking about her. What a guy.

Got A Dance With Dragons on my desk right now. Got through the prologue during lunch. Barnes and Noble only had two copies on the shelf when I got there. I'm guessing they had more in the back but who knows. The clerk asked if I had read the other 4 (um, yeah), which he had not, I told him to get on it, he's missing out.

It is good so far?

I haven't seen the book at the bookstore that's around me yet, either I'll wait a bit longer until it appears or if not then I'll order it online. I'm currently reading a few books now anyway.

Well the prologue features more in depth knowledge on warging/skinchanging and an army of wights and Others, so yeah it's good so far.
