“Without the instruments and accumulated knowledge of the natural sciences—physics, chemistry, and biology—humans are trapped in a cognitive prison. They are like intelligent fish born in a deep, shadowed pool. Wondering and restless, longing to reach out, they think about the world outside. They invent ingenious speculations and myths about the origin of the confining waters, of the sun and the sky and the stars above, and the meaning of their own existence. But they are wrong, always wrong, because the world is too remote from ordinary experience to be merely imagined.”—E.O. Wilson in Consilience (via rosetea)
I’m currently reading A Game of Thrones (I’m 300 pages in). The story is interesting and I like the book, but I hate turning the page to find that there is yet another Sansa chapter. Part of me just wants to skip her chapters entirely and hope that I don’t miss anything important (of course I won’t actually do that though). I’d rather be reading any other character’s POV over hers. My question to anyone that has read this book and the series is, does she ever become less useless?
Found this randomly. Don’t know how long it is or if you have already finished the book, but in my opinion, yes, Sansa’s story does get better. Or at least the situation around her gets more interesting. Her POV was my least favorite too, but I look forward to them now (I’m in the middle of Clash of Kings).
