After 2,075 days of waiting (longer if you live in the UK), we finally have a new A Song of Ice and Fire book to read. A Dance with Dragons has officially released in stores across the globe today.
In Europe, book stores have been selling Dance for a few hours, while on the East Coast the first wave of book store openings will be happening any minute now. For those who ordered online it is a waiting game, listening for that doorbell to ring signalling a package has arrived. And, of course, those with eReaders had everyone beat; they were able to download their copy late last night.
Use this thread to discuss your thoughts and reaction to the book. Tell us which of your crazy theories proved true and what new crazy theories you have developed based on the events of Dance. We won’t be requiring spoiler tags in the comments, so only venture into the comments if you have read the entire book!
