    So. . . am I the only crossover hockey/fantasy nerd that has finished all of these?
    Or the only one who has finished and wants to speculate on what's next?

    Working on it...damned though, hardcovers are so much more unwieldy when it comes to comfortable reading.

    Ok...DANCE OF DRAGONS


    So Reek. Knew that was coming sooner or later. You can almost tell at this point when a character disappears for a stretch, whether they are truly dead or just being held for later on. To me it's sad. I actually like Reek(I will continue using that name in lieu of just in case a casual reader or non reader has ventured in here) and I feel he was a tragic character from the beginning. Sure, he made some bad decisions but I still have to feel for such a flawed person. Gonna be tricky to translate on the show because, I think, that's the longest disappearance by a major character up to this point. On the show it should translate to at least 3 seasons with the splitting of book 3. Will folks even remember him at that point?

    I don't think they will JD.
    It will be interesting when the time comes how they handle it. Hopefully it won't be someone just saying "Oh, you are blah blah from hmm hmm! "

    DANCE OF DRAGONS...

    This may be the best book by far. So deep. And...so removed from the usual suspects. I am actually having trouble keeping things straight with this one due to the influx of newer characters(the party from Dorne,etc) and the politics of the almost It's a Mad mad mad world-type rush to Danaerys and her dragons. As Martin nears the conclusion it's really getting very dense. Going to have a severe case of withdrawls when I finish this...hopefully the new Dark Tower book sitting on the shelf will 'chase the dragon' a bit.

    Jaysus i am having so much trouble w/Reek. I really liked that character and I love the casting...and now that Asha seems to have an ulterior motive...Seems Martin ain't done w/him. He is the most tragic of the major players so far(and if you read the books you know who I am talking about)

    I have just started reading the books so am only half way through A Clash of Kings right now.

    I can't remember but has the show introduced Jojen and Meera yet?

    It's an interesting plot line w/ Bran but I don't recall it being introduced in any of the episodes so far?

    Also, HBO has taken some liberties with Renly's character it seems. I think the book slightly hinted at his 'preferences' but the show definitely addresses it in a much 'absolute' way. (Unless the book goes into this in more detail at a later time?)

    I'm just at the point right now where Reek is being introduced as a character. Will follow his developments closely
