L'arguzia e la saggezza di Tyrion Lannister - Mary Higgins Clark,George R.R. Martin

Che dire? Le citazioni di Tyrion sono sempre il top, è il mio personaggio preferito della serie e rileggere riunite in un solo posto le sue perle di saggezza è fantastico ma... l'idea è pessima!!! Pagare 12 euro (non 2!!! 12!!!) per un libro con sole citazioni e neanche 100 pagine è un furto

Tra ghiaccio e fuoco
Il trono di spade - Il grande inverno (Le cronache del ghiaccio e del fuoco, #1) - George R.R. Martin,Sergio Altieri

Era da tanto che avevo in mente di iniziare a leggere questa saga e forse anche grazie al freddo di questi primi giorni del 2019 il momento è arrivato.

 

E' difficile scrivere qualcosa di un libro di oltre 800 pagine, se non che per finire in dieci giorni un libro di tale "peso" la scrittura e la storia ti devono veramente catturare, quasi come se il libro ti tenesse in ostaggio come uno dei tanti presi durante le numerose battaglie svolte per giocare al Gioco del trono.

 

La cosa migliore per me stata l'uso dei  diversi punti di vista per portare avanti la storia. Ogni protagonista che racconta la sua parte di storia mette i suoi tasselli in una storia complessa, piena di intrighi e tradimenti , giustizia e ingiustizie ma anche di lealtà e onore ; tutte cose che si possono trovare nella realtà di tutti i giorni ma qui di reale c'è poco. Qui ci sono gli dei i meta-lupi, gli alberi sentinella , gli Estranei e molto altro. 

 

Una splendida lettura, che per fortuna è ( per ma) ancora solo al primo capitolo della saga.

Reading progress update: I've read 83%.
Il trono di spade - Il grande inverno (Le cronache del ghiaccio e del fuoco, #1) - George R.R. Martin,Sergio Altieri

Primo libro dell'anno e per fortuna la scelta è stata eccellente.

Un mondo magico i cui abitanti sono mossi da comportamenti quantomai reali.

Onore e tradimento, verità e bugie.

Tutti, in un modo o nell'altro,  che giocano al Gioco del Trono.

Fire & Blood: From Aegon I to the Regency of Aegon III
Fire & Blood - George R.R. Martin

The rise and fall of the Targaryens in Westeros over the course of 300 years is essentially the backstory for George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series (aka Game of Thrones).  Taking on the guise as a master of the Citadel, Martin’s Fire & Blood: From Aegon I to the Regency of Aegon III is the first volume of two detailing the history of the Targaryen dynasty and the unified Westeros they ruled that readers would first meet in A Game of Thrones.

 

Unlike the vast majority of the books concerning Westeros, Martin writes this one as a pure—yet fictional—history book, though with a clear narrative structure, detailing the lives of the Targaryens and the events that impacted their reigns from Aegon’s Conquest down to the Regency of his great-great-great-grandson Aegon III in the aftermath of The Dance of the Dragons.  The book begins with a quick family history of the Targaryens with their flight from Valyria before the Doom and the century leading up to Aegon’s conquest of Westeros before delving into said conquest with his sister-wives.  Then just a regular history book, the text goes into how the new realm was brought together and how the Targaryens attempted to bring Dorne into the realm during Aegon’s life.  Next came the reigns of the Conqueror’s two sons showing how the new dynasty was tested once the founder was missing and the problems faith and cultures play when interacting with one another.  Follow the death of Maegor the Cruel, the long reign of Jaehaerys I with considerable influence from his sister-wife queen Alysanne shows how dynasty’s rule was cemented even though seeds were planted for a crisis in the succession of the line that would explode in civil war after the death of their grandson Viserys I between his eldest daughter and her younger half-brother that would devastate the realm and basically kill off all the dragons—both human and creature—leaving a 10-year boy left to sit the Iron Throne.

 

Although around half the material in this book was a reprint from A World of Ice and Fire, “The Princess and the Queen, “The Rogue Prince”, and “Sons of the Dragon” it was all the new material and some retconned details of this 700 page book that is really interesting.  The reign of Jaehaerys and Alysanne was essentially all new as was the details about how The Dance of the Dragons ended and the resulting multiple Regencies for Aegon III.  Along with all this information, which fleshed out the backstory of Westeros even more, were parallels of characters from the main series—as well as the Dunk & Egg novels—with historical personages that appeared in this history that gives big fans thoughts to ponder about what might be in store with the former.

 

Overall Fire & Blood: From Aegon I to the Regency of Aegon III is a very good book for those fans of ASOIAF/GoT who look in-depth at their favorite series.  Personally as fan of the series and being interested in the depth Martin gives his series, as well as big history read, this book was fantastic.  Yet if you are a casual fan or simple a show fan that hasn’t read the books, this book isn’t for you.
