A Game of Thrones - George R.R. Martin

There have already been many good reviews written about this book, some praising and some condemning.

 

I myself loved the book and the way it is narrated by the different characters. Is it weird that my favorite character is Tyrion?

 

The story is about a kingdom in turmoil for the throne (thus the title) and the many high families involved, including the exiled children of the previous king. Add to that the Black Guard that stands guard at the huge ice wall protecting the kingdom from the Others. The ending of this book was a surprise to me. I can't wait to see what Dany will do!

This book leaves a lot of unanswered questions which leads in to the rest of the series which I will most definitely read. I just hope the last book does indeed bring everything to a close.

 

One note of warning. This book describes human savagery and butchery at it's worst with beheadings and war, descriptions of rape and debasement of women and the "lowborn". If you are sensitive to that sort of thing then this book may not be for you.

A Game of Thrones: The Graphic Novel, Vol. 1 - Daniel Abraham,George R.R. Martin,Tommy Patterson

 

I only realky picked this up cause it was a 1.99 ebook. I really liked that the art for the characters is based off the books, and not the show. I've read the novel A Game of Thrones about 4 times now so the story is the story. I've seen other reviews that said this might be hard to follow if you hadn't read the first novel. I can't say either way cause ASOIAF is my fandom, and I've spent countless hours obsessing over it. So the story is deeply inbeded in my psyche. Even though ASOIAF is fandom I probably won't continue with these due to pricing. I actually liked the Dunk and Egg comics a bit more, but these are nice too, just super pricey.

What I watched

 

I'm still watching Gilmore Gilrs, I'm currently watching season 3. It's so good!

 

I'm going to post a haul quite soon and then hopefully some picture of my brand new shelves (I'm moving really soon!). I won't post reviews in the near future, because I'm not reading that much these days and I don't have the energy to go on the computer after 8 hours staring at it at work... That's sad, actually.

 

Thanks for reading,

 

Line.
