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.

I just couldn‘t get into it. In the beginning I was enjoying it and it definitely was luring me in more than I anticipated but the story became rather monotonous and not very engaging. At moments the author became more verbose than was necessary for the development of the story. 300 pages in and bail. Better luck next time. 😊

Though it's not about Game of Thrones (just needed a way to post this 😅), I'm currently developing a new book tracking app, BookBee.me, and I'm eager to get feedback and suggestions from fellow book lovers.

I'd really appreciate it if you could share your ideas and what features you'd love to see in an app like this.

Feel free to reach out 😁

I forgot how little of the plot actually resolves. Dany‘s story moves distinctly from 1 phase to another… by far the most growth & impact on the overall story despite being an ocean away from the other characters.

#ReadingWesteros will start Clash of Kings 11/1!

Dany offers the slaves a place in the khalasar, she appoints Jhogo, Aggo &Rakharo as her blood riders but “it would shame them to ride for a woman” Ser Jorah is 1st of her Queensguard.
They‘ve made a pyre with Drogo‘s possessions to send him to the night lands. Dany adds her dragon eggs. & burns Mirri with him. Dany climbs into the pyre but the fire doesn‘t burn her. When the fire burns out they find Dany with 3 baby dragons & they swear loyalty.

Roary47 How can it stop here! I‘m excited to see what happens next for her. 😍 7mo
5feet.of.fury @Roary47 I love herrrr. she had the most character development of anyone.

This is a Re-Read for me. Obviously not quite as jaw-dropping after having read the series up to now, and watched the series, but still an astounding work. No tropes left unturned.

#ReadingWesteros @5feet.of.fury

5feet.of.fury Great job! Yeah, nothing could shock me like the first time (Who beheads a MC?) but a few of the perspectives I got more out of this time. Clash of Kings I haven‘t read previously, but I have watched the series… so nothing will be TOTALLY new there. 7mo

Cat, grieving Ned, goes to visit her father who is dying. The Lords strategize to join with Stannis or Renley. Cat calls for a truce, for peace. She still wants her daughters back. But others are focused on vengeance.
Then the Greatjon proclaims that any of those with claims to the throne don‘t have anything to do with the problems of the North & why should they follow any of them. They proclaim Robb The King in the North.

Roary47 The first time in a long time I‘ve felt bad for Catelyn. I‘d want my girls back too. At least Arya might be able to come back more quickly. Sansa is a little stuck. 7mo
5feet.of.fury @Roary47 I wish they did try to exchange hostages & Cersei would have to admit that she has no freaking clue where Arya is.. 7mo

Jon attempt to desert the Wall & go to war alongside Robb to avenge their father. He wonders how he‘ll be received since deserters are usually beheaded, but feels it‘s the right thing to do. His friends come to bring him back, & he goes because he doesn‘t want them punished too. Lord Mormont is not surprised, asks again for his allegiance & says they are going beyond the Wall to find the truth about what is happening on the other side.

Tywin &Tyrion find out Jaime was captured. While arguing of the next steps, Tyrion advises‘ Robb will not concede after what Joffrey has done to Ned, & they lost any bargaining power with his death.
They have news that Renly Baratheon & Highgarden are coming for the crown.
Tywin is sending Tyrion to Kings Landing to reign in Joffrey. It appears he is giving up on Jaime & putting his attention on his other son.

Roary47 I hate that Tyrion is second best, but glad his dad is acknowledging him as an heir. My favorite was he said not to bring his lady companion. First thing Tyrion says to her is to pack up she‘s coming along. 🤣 7mo

Dany wakes from nightmares,finds Drogo lived &her son did not. Mirri tells her her son was born with lizard scales, changed when she came into the tent. Only death can pay for a life, Mirri hadn‘t meant the horse. The Khalasar is gone. Drogo is alive, but nothing more. Dany confronts Mirri. Mirri says that she saw her god‘s house burned, was raped, her neighbors killed. Dany had saved Mirri in the same way Mirri “saved” Drogo.

4✨ This story is narrated in 8 different POVs. It starts out peaceful and calm. We have a bad king, his horrible wife, and a two faced son. Then we have siblings making peace with another nation. Finally we have the Starks where most of our POVs are. This is my second attempt and I‘m so glad I went through it this time with a chapter a day method. So much happens! Very well done. #GOTChapteraDay #ReadingWesteros @5feet.of.fury Notice Joff 🤣

5feet.of.fury I was really hard on Sansa my first read (I‘ve only read this one though) but this time I honestly think Ned is just as oblivious! 7mo
Roary47 @5feet.of.fury yeah I agree about Ned. Maybe just trying to see the good in others. I feel for Sansa, but she made her bed. I‘m looking forward to see how Tyrion will develop in the next book. 😍 7mo

Sansa is in her room, feeling depressed & betrayed. Joff orders her to attend court with him, Sansa refuses, confronts him, says he promised her mercy for Ned. She asks to go home, is refused. The guards beat her & She has no choice but to attend & act as his betrothed should. After, Joff takes her to the battlements where the heads of the traitors are displayed in warning.. including Ned‘s. & he brags that he‘s saving a spot for Robb.

5feet.of.fury This chapterrrrr. I‘m so furious but the way Sansa‘s mental state is shown is just so compelling. 7mo

5feet.of.fury @BethM yup, the naïveté is going. Really heartbreaking chapter, to see her facing her fathers death & abuse & know she is worried she‘ll never see her family again. To see her try to come to terms with all that when a few short chapters ago her big problem was that Arya threw an orange at her. ? 7mo

Drogo is battling his way to the sea. Dany is justifying the toll as “the price of the Iron Throne” but the death of mothers & children, slavery & rape is too much. Dany “claims” a girl to save her from such harm & then many others.

Cat is riding w/Robb & the host when they reach Walder Frey‘s area, they discuss where his allegiance may lie, but they must have that crossing. Lannisters have made their attack on Riverrun & her brother Edmure is captured. Cat meets with Lord Frey instead of Robb. He‘s a looney old perv, but Cat finds his price: she is to foster 2 of his young sons in Winterfell, take an older son to make a knight, a marriage for Arya… & for Robb & they cross.

Joffrey is holding court for the 1st time as king. A decree is read that all named must swear fealty of be considered traitors. Among the names: Stannis Baratheon, Ser Loras, the Tullys & all the Starks in Winterfell incl Arya who Sansa surmises has escaped.

Tywin is named the new Hand, Cersei as Joff‘s council & Jaime as the new commander of the Kingsguard. The Hound is added to the Kingsguard.

Sansa begs for mercy for Ned before Joffrey.

I did read this yesterday, but forgot to post #GOTChapteraDay #ReadingWesteros I really like the mother and son interaction in this chapter with Robb. In the end she lets him know she is not yet going to Winterfell. They are both worried that no one is talking about Arya. @5feet.of.fury

Tyrion is still harbored by the Mountain Clan when the Lannister banners approach. He rides to find his Lord Father &Tywin catches Tyrion up on events. Tyrion is trying to collect goods to provider to the clansmen when they begin to clash with the soldiers. After introductions are made, Tywin says that if the Mountain clan rides with them he will give all Tyrion promised & more, when bribery fails he plays into their pride.

Cat feels pride at Robb‘s leadership, but she also has fears; he is 15 & leading a host to battle, what chance could he have against seasoned battle commanders like Tywin & Jaime? But he comes up with a strategy.
After, Cat chooses to head for Riverrun & the Tullys instead of Winterfell.

BethM Go@home Cat! It also strikes me how young Robb is here, like you feel the emotion of it. 8mo
5feet.of.fury @BethM agree! I really liked the way she coached him through it. 8mo
BooksNBowls @BethM i really enjoyed their interaction! She definitely needs to GO HOME! I don‘t see how she can help Rob any more than she has. The stubbornness of these Starks!! 8mo

Todays #GOTChapteraDay #ReadingWesteros was with Dany. I‘m glad she got to have a little fun even if she heard disturbing news that there is a bounty for her and her unborn baby. I really liked how Drogo reacted. Even though this was an arranged marriage he really does care about her. @5feet.of.fury

5feet.of.fury I really liked the progression in that chapter, Drogo didn‘t really get the whole Iron Throne thing, but when they think they can eff with his wife & child… time for war. 8mo

In yesterdays #GOTChapteraDay #ReadingWesteros Bran has received word from Sansa about their father. Robb is going to go help or break him out. Bran is being moved around more by Hodor by a basket that helps Bran feel less like a child. Bran is also still struggling with his disability and what he believes will never happen for him. @5feet.of.fury
