Gah! So long! Only complaints were Theon's character in general were so not a good plot twist. Other than that I'm glad all the Starks are still alive in this book and are relatively safe for the moment. Favorite character in this book was definitely Tyrion because of his conniving and cunning ways. Also got to like Sansa a little better than before but still think she's an idiot. Arya is freaking awesome and is still kicking ass but I hope she finds and reunites with Nymeria soon. Really liked this installment, it was very engrossing like the first and forces to see all the characters stories till the end.
