Caderno de quotes de livros: A Dance With Dragons

A ideia era que os livros me mantivessem ocupada enquanto a nova temporada de Game of Thones não começava; mas a HBO anunciou que a season 7 só chega no dia 16 de julho, e eu terminei de ler o “A Dance With Dragons” no mês passado… #fail

Uma observação sobre o quinto título da saga A Song of Ice and Fire é que, neste momento, livro e série já são praticamente duas coisas independentes. Lá na primeira temporada o roteiro era bem fiel à obra do George R. R. Martin (exceto pelo corte de alguns personagens secundários), mas agora tem mais storylines diferentes do que iguais (alô, Sansa) – sem contar que a timeline da série já ultrapassou a do livro para muitos personagens, como o Bran, o Jon e a Daenerys.

Algumas passagens para o meu caderno de quotes de livros (acho que vai dar para perceber que esse livro me deixou com fome):

“They began with a broth of crab and monkfish, and cold egg lime soup as well. Then came quails in honey, a saddle of lamb, goose livers drowned in wine, buttered parsnips, and sucking pig.” (p. 29)

“The serving men brought out a heron stuffed with figs, veal cutlets blanched with almond milk, creamed herring, candied onions, foul-smelling cheeses, plates of snails and sweetbreads, and a black swan in her plumage.” (p. 31)

“’The Mother of Dragons must don the tokar or be forever hated,’ warned the Green Grace, Galazza Galare. ‘In the wools of Westeros or a gown of Myrish lace, Your Radience shall forever remain a stranger amonst us, a grotesque outlander, a barbarian conqueror. Meereen’s queen must be a lady of Old Ghis.’ Brown Ben Plumm, the captain of the Second Sons, had put it more succinctly. ‘Man want to be the king o’ the rabbits, he best wear a pair o’ floppy ears.’” (p. 40)

“They nibbled on spiced sausage tha morning, washed down with a dark smokeberry brown. Jellied eels and Dornish reds filled their afternoon. Come evening there were sliced hams, boiled eggs, and rosted larks stuffed with garlic and onions, with pale ales and Myrish fire wines to help in their digestion.” (p. 79)

“The beer was brown, the bread black, the stew a creamy white. She served it in a trencher hollowed out of a stale loaf. It was thick with leeks, carrots, barley, and turnips white and yellow, along with clams and chunks of cod and crabmeat, swimming in a stock of heavy cream and butter. It was the sort of stew that warmed a man right down to his bones, just the thing for a wet, cold night.” (p. 140)

“They chanted in the tongue of Old Volantis, but Tyrion had heard the prayers enough to grasp the essence. Light our fire and protect us from the dark, blah blah, light our way and keep us toasty warm, the night is dark and full of terrors, save us from the scary things, and blah blah blah some more.” (p. 476)

“’Whore!’ someone cried out. A woman’s voice. Women were always the crueler where other women were concerned.” (p. 935)

“Someone had already told the Thunderfist about Gerrick Kingsblood and his new style. ‘King o’ the Wildlings?’ Tormund roared. ‘Har! King o’ My Hairy Butt Crack, more like.’” (p. 993)

“’My grandmother always used to say, Summer friends will melt away like summer snows, but winter friends are friends forever.’” (p. 994)
