Grammar & George R.R. Martin

George R. R. Martin really does make me smile, and on a regular basis.

Listening to the audiobook of A Feast of Crows just now, as I rode my bike home, I stood up and bounced with joy after I heard the following bit:

“She still grieves for her father.”

“Outlaws killed him,” sobbed Lady Amorae. [sp?]  “Father had only gone out to
ransom Peter Pimple.  He brought them the gold they asked for.  But they hung
him anyway.”

“Hanged, Amy!  Your father was not a tapestry.”

Grammar and diction – oh, how I do delight in them.  Thank you, George R.R. Martin, for allowing me to find these little joys all throughout your books.  I am daily grateful for them.  😀
