A Game of Thrones
A Game of Thrones | George R. R. Martin
The first volume of A Song of Ice and Fire, the greatest fantasy epic of the modern age. GAME OF THRONES is now a major TV series from HBO, starring Sean Bean. Summers span decades. Winter can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne has begun. As Warden of the north, Lord Eddard Stark counts it a curse when King Robert bestows on him the office of the Hand. His honour weighs him down at court where a true man does what he will, not what he must and a dead enemy is a thing of beauty. The old gods have no power in the south, Stark s family is split and there is treachery at court. Worse, the vengeance-mad heir of the deposed Dragon King has grown to maturity in exile in the Free Cities. He claims the Iron Throne.

I have forced myself to read a lot of books. But no book have forced me to read it like A game of thrones. I love the way its written, especially the varying character POV. For a moment you will be in cold and green winterfell and the next you will be at hot and wild grass lands of Dothraki sea.

My dirty secret is that I love Cersei from The Song of Ice and Fire series. 😍 And I'm always so torn about it, because there are so many reasons to hate her! But I guess I love how she is fearless and kind of brutal, making her mark in a man's world. 🦁 💕 She's certainly not my favorite character (Targaryen pride!), but I do really just love her to pieces!

When you play a game of thrones you win or you die.
I didnt think I would ever read this book as it is so huge.But now that I have I thank the gods(old and the new) :P
The series is undoubtedly dark. The sex scenes and violence are spread throughout the book, but it was never too much. I think it was a fair balance for the story being told.
I usually pick my favorite characters quickly, I loved Tyrion,Daenerys,Jon ,Arya & ALL the direwolves.

Yesterday night was the Chicago Public Library‘s annual Carl Sandburg Literary Award dinner and, as always, it was super fun. Dr. Eve L. Ewing (writes nonfiction, poetry & comics) received the 21st Century Award while George R.R. Martin received the Carl Sandburg Literary Award. Also enjoyed a great conversation with the author at our table who wrote a book about Chicago in the 60s. So many authors...so many books...so much fun.

Over 800 pages! In most cases, I can say I read the book before the movie/series, not this time.Didn‘t have HBO but starting watching GOT on DVD in 2017 .Got HBO just to watch the last season , & am rewatching it again.Excellent book,hope to get to the other books ...soon.Great characters ,great adventure,where is that last book Mr. Martin?🤔

CoffeeCatsBooks Nice thing about coming to the series later, at least you don‘t have to wait years in between all the books (just this last one/two). 2mo
Leftcoastzen @CoffeeCatsBooks Indeed! If I wasn‘t so backed up with #chunksters I would probably start the next one. 2mo

I SEE what all the hype is about now!

This was certainly an epic novel with well developed characters, wolf pups, and dragons!

I grew to really enjoy the writing style and the change of characters between chapters. By far Arya and Danny are the best. I definitely enjoyed their perceptions the most.

While I did watch the series, already I see how the books are so much more detailed. Can‘t wait for the next one!!

Did anyone watch this video today? I clicked on it because it had GOT and i saw it on trending.
And i don't think anyone could have made a better explanation for why the last season was terrible.

https://youtu.be/BGr0NRx3TKU

If anyone is a GOT fan and disliked the last season, the video is worth a watch.

Redwritinghood I can‘t believe that I haven‘t gotten around to watching the last two seasons yet! I‘m worried now after so many people hated the final season. 4mo
vivastory I know this is about as #unpopularopinion as you can get, but I really don't think the last season was bad. 4mo
sudi @Redwritinghood i thought they ruined the show for me. I can't even get myself to rewatch it because all the plots eventually led to nothing in the end. But i guesss there are some people who like it, so i guess it depends on the person. 4mo

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @sudi I agree with you! It‘s ruined for me... I was going to buy all of the dvds, but I‘m glad I didn‘t until seeing the last season! 3mo
sudi @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks exactly, i used to always look forward to rewatching the series. But i tried rewatching it and just couldn't do it. Despite the rest of the series being good, the finale just ruined it for me. 3mo

For GoT fans, the bottom left pic is Thingvellir Park, where the N American and Eurasian continental plates meet up, & also the setting of the Eyrie. 😃

I also had some of the best hot chocolate I‘ve had in a while! Off soon to see a puffin colony and the black sand beaches around Vik.

Saw this on the EpicReads Facebook page today!

♉️- Insists they read books first.

Guilty as charged! 😳 I‘ve only read the first two books in GRRM‘s “A Song of Ice and Fire” series to date, and so I‘ve only watched the first two seasons of “Game of Thrones”. If I plan on reading a book that has an adaptation, I always read the book first. Until “Winds of Winter” comes out, I won‘t watch the final GOT seasons... which is probably a good thing! 😂

#BookMail Pt1 Kicking off this fortnights mail with this beautiful Edition Of The 1st book in A Song Of Ice And Fire. I have the original paperbacks, bought as they were released, but they changed designs for the last books & so I don‘t have a matching set. I‘m buying these Special Edition Illustrateds as they come out, I especially love the illustration of Daenerys as she emerges from the flames with her baby dragons. Folio Editions are next!
