My Take on the Book:
I wasn't sure if I liked Theon Greyjoy - he seemed a bit underhanded; and even though he had granted mercy in some ways, I think a lot of guilt still ate at him. Cersei Lannister (Baratheon) appeared to at times have a wisdom about her brought on by bad experiences; but, as always; there are characters that appealed to me: Littlefinger and Varys are obvious ones, but there's a new surprise here: Tyrion Lannister. He seemed to have this underhanded cunning and observant way to him as well as a slight intellectual side as well - he did a lot of silent observing and makes decisions based on what he sees.
There were some scenes that I thoroughly enjoyed as well: The conversations between Tyrion, Little Finger and Varys; I enjoyed the way the scene of the public against the royals as well as the fire scene played out - and lastly - there were times where certain aspects of this book really started to get interesting. Renly Baratheon seemed to be one of those happy-go-lucky people. I ended up giving this leisurely read a four star rating.
There were still some loose ends by the end of this book - and I'm not sure when I'm going to get to the next one in the series; but I'm definitely interested to know how this is going to carry on.
