Game of Thrones
Game of Thrones | George R R Martin
Long ago, in a time forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons out of balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. The cold is returning, and in the frozen wastes to the north of Winterfell, sinister forces are massing beyond the kingdom's protective Wall. To the south, the king's powers are failing: his most trusted advisor dead under mysterious circumstances and his enemies emerging from the shadows of the throne. At the center of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a family as harsh and unyielding as the frozen land they were born to. Now Lord Eddard Stark is reluctantly summoned to serve as the king's new Hand, an appointment that threatens to sunder not only his family but the kingdom itself. Sweeping from a harsh land of cold to a summertime kingdom of epicurean plenty, "A Game of Thrones" tells a tale of lords and ladies, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and bastards who come together in a time of grim omens. Here, an enigmatic band of warriors bear swords of no human metal, a tribe of fierce wildings carry men off into madness, a cruel young dragon prince barters his sister to win back his throne, a child is lost in the twilight between life and death, and a determined woman undertakes a treacherous journey to protect all she holds dear. Amid plots and counterplots, tragedy and betrayal, victory and terror, allies and enemies, the fate of the Starks hangs perilously in the balance, as each side endeavors to win that deadliest of conflicts: the game of thrones.

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). 1w
Leftcoastzen @CoffeeCatsBooks Indeed! If I wasn‘t so backed up with #chunksters I would probably start the next one. 1w

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. 2mo
vivastory I know this is about as #unpopularopinion as you can get, but I really don't think the last season was bad. 2mo
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. 2mo

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! 2mo
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. 2mo

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. 😃

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!

I have changed my tune on this one. It's taken a while, but I'm finally there. I struggle with fantasy novels, but after watching the TV shows I was able to picture the people and follow the story more easily. Also, I came to realise the escapism of this genre and the relief it brings from real life. On to the next book!

Howard_L I haven't read this and almost never read fantasy/sci-fi. I didn't watch the show but maybe I'll give this one or something similar a shot one day soon... 3mo

Listening to the books again. Its so different hearing the story now that I know how it all ends. Certain characters feel like whole new people this time around. Still one of my favorite series, though. 🐺🐲

Kalalalatja I know how you feel! I‘m currently listening to book 5, and it is SO different from the show, and there‘s so many things I had forgotten about 😱 3mo
laurenslibrary @Kalalalatja Now that I know how it ends for Dany, a lot of the stuff she does seems less brave and more crazy to me. I always thought she should have just stayed in Essos and ruled but excused her desire for the Iron Thrones as her "following her destiny." But now it feels more like "following her crazy ass across the world bc she's obsessed." 3mo

This is my last entry for Dave's giveaway, I swear! I must really want the prize! 😁🤞ANYWAY. Cersei Lannister. Queen of the f*%@ing realm. She does awful, despicable things but...I love her anyway! There's just something about her that I can't help cheering for! And while, ultimately, Daenarys Targaryen is my favorite GoT character, I can't help secretly raising a glass of wine to salute my evil queen! 🦁💕

DaveGreen7777 Excellent choice, Becky! Cersei may be ruthless and devious, but she‘s just so good at playing the Game of Thrones, it‘s hard not to love her anyway! 😁 Her son, however, is much easier to hate! 😒 3mo

Why do people like this again? I‘m pretty sure it‘s the writing. Because, as much as couldn‘t finish this, the writing is good. Really good.

BUT. The content. I was good for the first five chapters, watching characters run around Winterfell and make decisions (I love Bran a lot. Just saying). But after that? It started to get creepy. More in comments

wideeyedreader The main thing that turned me off is Dany. I am MAJORLY grossed out by a 13 year old being expected to act as a married woman. And no, that wasn‘t common in history, no matter what they want you to believe. The next thing? The way the Dothraki are treated. The only dark-skinned characters in the book, and they are described, literally, as “animalistic”. Yeah, no. I‘m not about that. 3mo
