I read in plenty of places that it was Joffrey who ordered that Bran Stark be killed whilst overhearing the king mention that Bran should be put out of his misery, and while I read A Game of Thrones at a fair trot, I don't think I would have missed such a revelation. Is that in A Game of Thrones, or is it in a later book in the series?

You mean latest. There are two more books to come.
(Sorry, my pedanticism is automatic...)

Interesting. I thought the series hit its peak with the third book, and the fourth book was a huge disappointment and true slog, mainly because most it of focused on additional characters and their back stories. The last book continued some of the excesses of the fourth book, but since it got back to some of the core characters it's better, but certainly not up to the level of the first three.
Just finished A Feast for Crows. I'm not sure why it is considered so poorly. It's plodding, to be sure, and it doesn't quite move forward enough, but Martin writes well enough, even at his worst, and it is surely satisfying to see Cersei fall (albeit not enough for my liking).
