I am ashamed to say I only just picked it up, but I am hooked now that I have! I just finished A Storm of Swords and am completely tortured by the epilogue. I also have been watching the HBO series, although I personally think it is hard to follow if you don't have the book basis before watching. I have been explaining it to the friend I have been watching with.
Does it kill anyone else how you think a character has died only for them to surprise come back? Not going to spoil anyone in specific since some do legitimately die, but this style drives me nuts and has kept me rushing through just so I could find out if someone is dead or alive!
As for my favorite character, this seems to be constantly shifting. I have grown to really like Tyrion and his raunchy humor. I also really like Dany, I think she is very clever in many matters, but also so silly particular with (SPOILERS) Mormont and Selmy. (END SPOILERS)
