Since everyone knows the basics for the story, I’ll just write down the things I liked about the book and things I didn’t like:

1. I like the red comet and how the peoples ideas about it resemble what people in the Middle Ages would have thought will happen if they’d seen a comet like that.
2. I like the strong female characters – Dany because she’s awesome, Arya, because she’s cool. And I admire some that I don’t particularly like – Cersei a bit of a mystery, but I like to ponder about what goes on in her head (In a similar way as what would Hitler’s mother have thought…?) and Sansa – just the irony of it all… I guess Brienne and Lady Stark are cool too…
3. I like how you can keep on reading t without getting awfully bored, but might still fall asleep.
4. The whole idea of the Star kids getting to be their direwolves in their dreams…

I obviously don’t like Theon Greyjoy and Joffrey and Jamie etc etc.

After watching some episodes of season two of the tv series, I have to say that I prefer the book – it’s more enjoyable, and less awful.

Also I started to wonder about the anatomy and physiology of dragons and the mechanism behind their fire-breathing. Do dragons breathe out oxygen and have a tiny sparkle maker somewhere in their throat?
