Personally, I'd put Memory right up there with A Civil Campaign. Chances are (this is speculation, not spoilerage) that we will see Ivan more as we see him in those books than as the feckless, and willfully clueless, youth he was in The Warrior's Apprentice. Memory is the book where we really see him move from the latter to the former.
You know, just once I'd like to see Ivan call or visit Miles and Gregor and *not* have them wince when they see him.
