More than likely, I'll try to get it done and get going on book 3.
Yeah, it must suck knowing everything that's going to happen.

I remember thinking Bran was dead after his fall when I first read AGOT, it would suck knowing he was going to eventually wake up. Just one example of how the lack of suspense could probably render the story somewhat boring.

If you have the patience, though, I would recommend paying attention to details. When I say details, I don't mean descriptions of food or clothing, but rather the thoughts, the events and the flashbacks. All those details matter quite a bit as the story goes on.
