I'm trying to discern if I am meant to definitively know what happened in one of the last chapters of the book.
(Spoilers A Dance With Dragons)
In one of the final chapters of the book, Jon Snow is betrayed by his own men, who seem to think his actions are tantamount to treason. He's stabbed at least four times, of which one was in the gut and one was in the back. The whole thing seems meant to evoke the assassination of Julius Caesar, but that's neither here nor there. The question is this: Are we meant to think he's dead (you know, because he was stabbed four times in pretty important places), or are we meant to not know (because we never see his dead body, etc.)?
