I completed "The Company of Wolves" which was just as creepy and bizarre as the movie based off this story.

Reading progress update: I've read 49%.
A Dance with Dragons - George R.R. Martin

My "Ramsay Bolton needs to die in a fire" checklist:

 

1) Cut out your tongue, grind it up and eat it, so you are literally swallowing your own tongue.

2) Roll around in some acid. Go on. It'll be fun!

3) And then impale yourself on a spike through your nads and let them fall off from festering puss.

4) Then skin your ding-a-ling and watch it shrivel.

5) Then, and only then, die in a fire. Preferably of the wildfire variety.

5a) Take dear old daddy with you.

 

In happier but no less disturbing news: Lord Manderly + pies = OTP. I see what you did there, you diabolical, culinary genius. ;)

Unimportant Sub-Plots: "A Feast for Crows" by George R. R. Martin
A Feast for Crows - George R.R. Martin


The thing that astonishes me, continually, is the fans who cannot see it and, in some cases, cannot even perceive that the quality has fallen off disastrously as he got mired in unimportant sub-plots. He reminds me of a story told by one my bosses I used to have a long time ago. This guy was head director. When I started working in that department I found none of the rest of the staff would speak to him because they had decided he was completely incompetent. He wasn't. He was good at certain things but not all the things he had to do (such as managing people) as head director. Work piled up and up and his desk was a vast pile of papers which stuff disappeared into.

Non-Coherent Narrative: "A Storm of Swords" by George R. R. Martin
A Storm of Swords (A Song of Ice and Fire, #3) - George R.R. Martin


Characters wandering about the landscape, sometimes in circles. Plotlines unresolved while new characters are created and new plotlines set off. In one of them (can't remember which one now) it ends with a strange postscript explaining that the reason that so many previously important characters did not figure is because he could not find space for them in this vast tome, er, sorry about that. I have never seen anything like that in a book series. So why keep creating unnecessary new characters? It looks to me like the series had at one point a cataclysmic ending in view - Ice and Fire, the White Walkers coming down from the North and the dragons coming from the East, no doubt to meet in some Westeros Ragnarok. The trouble is that that doesn't fit well with the idea of a Wars of the Roses type feuding families and shifting alliances and that he got more interested in that.
