Summary for the new Bran chapter that was read by GRRM yesterday at Worldcon

Like all George R. R. Martin fans, most of you can't wait to get their hands on A Dance with Dragons (Canada, USA, Europe). And every little nugget of information is likely to get you excited! If you fall into this category, I reckon you'll be delighted to learn that a detailed summary of the new Bran chapter has just been posted on Westeros.

I was meaning to post the entire summary here, but then decided against doing just that. There are always a few dumbasses who don't want to read stuff for fear of spoilers, but who can't help themselves and go through the text, and then cry foul because it contained spoilers.

So follow this link for a full summary of GRRM's reading.

Enjoy!

that was as lame as can be.
a summary ?
it's nothing but a teaser.
realy now, i'm begining to despise g.r.r.martin.
his attitude to the soiaf series is that of robert jordan to wot.
drag it forever, if they can.
in short, i'm waiting for actions and not words. excuse the pun, when martin gives a date, I will ease on the "teasers", and go to the sustance.

Whaaat? That was a great chapter. Gave me that whole "Frodo goin' to Mordor" feeling. And Hodor's eye is frozen shut? Holy cow~! I still hope that Martin doesn't make Bran into a bad-ass ambivalent action hero, though...

Can't wait to hear more about the Three-Eyed Crow.

w/o reading the spoiler - it's been so long - who's Bran again?

Martin said...

Bran is Tyrion and Brienne's son*


*or is he?

George RR Martin cant put out any more books in the series until the tv show is broadcast. Can't lose the chance of him making more money.

I understand it, its capitalism at its best.

There are plenty of other books to read until then.

The complaint with RJ was that he kept churning books out which added little to the plot. The complaint with GRRM is that he doesn't churn the books out at all. The two would seem to be mutually exclusive cases.

Very cool. I'm glad GRRM is revealing more of what's going in North Westeros.

I've only read the first book of the series, but there was no spoiler for me (apart from the "cyberpunk"-like slip into a wolve's personality which is new to me). However, I liked the atmosphere and the whole predicament. I can imagine why Martin can only write under specific conditions, he is really trying to get a lot out of the atmosphere. I don't admire him as much as some, his style seems rather simple to me. Still very immersive.

Heath said...

I thought it was good too. It's nice to see some progress in the Bran storyline.

I really wish all the people complaining about the next book being late would give up and read something else. The book is late - GRRM knows that, the editor and publisher know that, the readers know that, everyone knows it. The whining forum posts about it every time GRRM is mentioned are boring and add absolutely nothing to the discussion.

@christian -

cheers.

First I was eager to read the summary. But after a few sentences I decided that I won't read this summary and other related stuff. I will definitely wait until I can read the whole book.

Jebus said...

Can never bring myself to read preview chapter of this or Malazan - I'd prefer to just read it when it comes out rather than tease myself.
