4 is better than 5 because of Cersei and Sansa (and Jaime?). I honestly cannot recall anything of interest Dany and Tyrion did in 5.


You're the first person I've heard say this (not knocking your opinion at all, just an observation). Interesting. The focus on Sansa in the 4th book made me want to gouge my eyes out. The 5th book still doesn't hit the quality of 1-3, but was a step up from book 4 imho.

I also have a special fondness for the 5th book as I was able to get it signed by George R.R. Martin in the week it released :D.

4 seems to be pretty popular over at the "official" ASoIaF board. I guess it depends when you read the books. If you read them as they came out, you'll probably not like 4 and 5 because Storm is a climax of part 1 and Feast and Dance are transition books. I read them all just a year ago, so I didn't have to wait ten years to find out what certain characters are up to.

Sansa chapters in Feast rock because of a certain character who she hangs out with (I won't spoil it seeing as this is for the tv show).

My official ranking goes: 3 > 1 > 4 > 2 > 5.

Heh, I didn't want to expand on my comment for fear of spoiling things for people who haven't read through, but you guys are doing a fine enough job of that. In SOIAF, even mentioning a character has a chapter in a book is a spoiler IMO ;)

But yes, the point I was trying to make is that Daenerys will no longer be that guy's favorite character after he reads her God-awful chapters in book five.

Really torn between BB for the Lannister cover and Amazon for the $20 I have in credit...

Just making sure: If I preorder and the price changes before shipping, Best Buy will price adjust before charging?

Not always, but you can always call and get it adjusted after it ships as part of their pricematch guarantee policy. Usually if it drops before shipment it'll be automatically lowered.

So, you're going to slit the cashier's throat and walk out without paying? Cause that's the only way that comment makes sense, don't forget to film that.

I'd go 3--1--2--5--4.

Feast for Crows drags for me as I just don't care much about the Iron Island and Dorne plots/characters. The series already had too many character arcs IMO without adding more to the mix.

Five at least got focused back more on the main characters, but still drug as not a lot of major import happened until late in the book.

I'll prefer to take the safer round and go Lannister. "a Lannister always pays their debts"

Ah so you will be using credit then paying it off at a later time.... I see.

I guess that would be the only way to pay the iron price, guess I'll stick to the plastic price.

Tried to pre-order the Lannister exclusive in-store but the system refused the SKU, so they have my info to hold that one specifically for the pre-order I did place. Sounds like they're getting quite a few of the exclusive covers in two weeks, so I'm pretty confident anyone should be able to get what they want on day one.

Wasn't the season 1 Blu-Ray on sale for $34.99 when it was released, not $24.99?

I got it for 24.99. I remember because Best Buy only had one copy left and Target had multiple copies for 29.99. And I remember not wanting to get it at first but it was so god damn cheap, I said Fuck it.

But again my memory could be fuzzy, but I do remember distinctly that Amazon matched the Best Buy Price and I remember seeing this:

http://theoatmeal.co...f_thrones_price

right when they did, so again, I'm pretty sure it was 24.99 but then again maybe I'm wrong. The only thing is. This time I have a feeling it's going to be more because of the blu ray + dvd route they are going.

Yeah I even remember telling some co workers how cheap it was that week that they were like "whoa that's cheap for an HBO blu ray" and some even considered getting it. But don't take my word for truth.

edit: ugh now you're making my brain doubt everything. oh well Fuck it whatever. lol

edit2: I think I might have used Reward Zone GC's for it. That's why I got it so cheap....MY BRAAIINNNN.

Season 1 was $34.99 according to my Amazon receipt.

Honestly, I'll be happy if Season 2 is that price. I'm not willing to pay more than that.

Well hopefully Best Buy and Amazon mark down the price near release date. I'm kind of anxious myself to see if we'll get lucky to get it at a $35 price point like last year.

I would be curious to hear which covers people chose and whether or not they'd read the books.

You might want to remove those spoilers. They're vague, but not vague enough.
