Man, I hope those ratings stay up. I was worried about the pace of this season. A lot of cool stuff happens in Clash, but it is a very chatty character driven book. Having Rob more involved to show more action is good idea. I can't wait for Arya to get her 3 wishes, is that this book? Probably not, but her story is fun. The Pyromancer, Tyrion's chain, & more great elements are to be had. I'm also wonder if they'll build up the hound for the ending of this book...
