I respect Mr. Martin and think he has done a great job on this series so far. However at this rate, I'll be pushing 70+ when the series is over, if I make it that far. AFfC came out in 05. Before that it was it was aSoS in 2000. That makesm it 9 years since I had a meaningful Jon, Tyrion or Danearys chapter. Unless i have missed it, there isn't even any word out on when this book may be finished. Sorry just fealt the need to vent. Go ahead and bash me if you want. edit: or delete this thread all together. I would have but I couldn't figure out how.
