I have recently started reading ‘Game of Thrones, Book One: A Song of Ice and Fire” by George RR Martin, after watching the HBO TV Series, or should I say, after purchasing Series 1 and Series 2 from the shops and online. I cannot wait till series 3 is released to buy.
It is an epic fantasy of modern age, action, horror, gore, bloody, adult themed (not suited for eyes of little ones).
It is such a brilliant book, story. One of which, i wish i had written myself..
Image a world, where summer lasts for years, decades and when winter arrives, it lasts forever. imagine what horror and darkness can come with that. A world with witch craft, superstition, fear. A king that rules 7 kingdoms, families, like royalty (high-borns), and then there is The Wall, which divides and protects the dark forces from the kingdom. The wall which is taller than any tall building you can think of. The Night Watch’s duty to protect. But the night watch men aren’t people who you would think are good people – it is like people who are rapists, prisoners. Among them are good people.
Families fighting for their rights, deaths.
Each family has their sigils –
You have the Starks, the Lannisters, the Targaryens, the Greyjoys, The Baratheons..
Great, superb. You don’t know what you are missing.
Enjoy the theme – Love it xxx
