A Game of Thrones

George R.R. Martin Á 2 Summary

A inmemorial y olvidada surgen en los rincones más sombrios y maravillosos la traición y la lealtad la compasión y la sed de venganza el amor y el poder hacen del juego de tronos una poderosa trampa ue atrapa en sus fauces a los personajes y al lecto. Reader LogicI HATE this bookI HATE it so much I had to get a new hardback copy to read so I could underline all the parts I HATE about it so much and post them on GoodreadsI HATE it with such a passion I also bought copies for all my friends and family also in new hardback editions so they could HATE it along with meWhen the TV series came on I was so fuming with rage I watched the entire season twice and bought six copies of the DVD because I could not believe how much I could HATE somethingI had spent so much time discussing how much I HATE this with all my friends who HATE it too and who all bought copies I decided to get a George RR Martin tattoo on my buttock to show how strong my HATRED for his work is There was such a collectivity at the time—like everyone uniting in HATING this together—that some of us formed relationships in HATE I met my wife at a George RR Martin convention and we got married as one of the characters reciting parts of the book for our vows and paid GRRM all our life savings to come read from his HORRIBLE book We HATE this beyond belief Maybe one day we’ll read a book we like and the author can get rich on LOVE

I really feel the necessity of a bit of personal backstory here before I start the review Back in 1996 when this book first came out and I was about 14 or 16 years old I saw the hardcover on a sale table for about 5 and couldn't resist a bargain still can't though I'm cautious these days So I started reading this book with the vague idea that it was a flop and that may not have helped but I got through 100 pages of it before feeling so crapped off with it that I shoved it in my cupboard and tried not to think about it Page 108 to be exact More on why laterIf you've heard of this book or read it you're probably aware that far from being the flop I assumed it was at the time and I didn't know anyone who was reading it the series has gone on to be one of the big Cash Cows of the fantasy genre Computer games role playing games there's even a board game that looks like Risk Sooner or later there'll be a movie or something no doubt I'm moderately surprised one isn't in the works already People love this book and this series So I'm well aware I'll probably be lynched for this review because even the people on Goodreads who didn't like it still had great things to say about itBut reviews are subjective and here's mineIn the vein of Tolkein Jordan Elliott Goodkind Hobb Eddings Feist et al A Game of Thrones is set in the classicly boring and overdone medieval England esue setting and is essentially about a bunch of nobles fighting over a throne Great Very original Praised for its focus on political intrigue its lack of magic and similar fantasy tropes and its cast of believable and interesting characters I found the book tedious The first epic fantasy series I read after Narnia was Jordan's The Wheel of Time series and it's true that I struggled with the first book Eye of the World But there were elements to it that I liked characters who I felt attached to enough to read the second book and become hooked and so on I love 1000 page long fat fantasy books I love huge casts of characters and have no problem keeping up with them I've read Jennifer Fallon's Wolfblade trilogy and Second Sons Trilogy both of which are heavy on political intrigue and very low on magic and they're supurb A Game of Thrones is not It offers nothing new to the genre and does nothing original with what it hasNarrated in turns by Eddard Ned Stark Lord of Winterfell; his wife Lady Catelyn; his bastard son Jon Snow; his very young daughters Sansa and Arya; his middle son Bran; Tyrion Lannister a dwarf and brother to the ueen; and young Daenerys Targaryen last of the line of dragon kings and exiled to the land beyond the narrow sea the book is divided into neat chapters headed by the name of one or the other so you know exactly whose point of view you're going to get and where you are in the plot Thanks for holding my hand Martin but I don't like this techniue The chapter headings I'm referring to It encourages me to start wondering about the character before I've even started reading CATELYN the chapter title reads is she young or old a peasant a farmer a daughter a mother nice mean I start imagining things and then have to correct it all as the character is revealed during the chapter There's power in names and withholding them or putting elements of a character's personality first is often compelling and better

I rated this in 2010 In 2017 it's time I actually use my wordsHere's my long overdue review of A Game of Thrones I was looking at the current reviews Here you have a book with a ridiculously high average rating vast sales and the most liked reviews are three 1s and an unrated comedy piece Do we love to hate that much Apparently we do Not only is knocking down easier than building it’s also fun to watch Well sadly all I have to offer here is a less exciting set of praise for the genius and importance of this bookThe first bit of genius is that on paper GRRM writes in not only the opposite manner to me but in a manner I profess to dislike Wait I like how he writes on paper you know what I meanThings he does that should annoy meI Lengthy descriptions of everything especially food clothing and architecture Normally I hate wading through that stuff to get at the story Somehow GRRM does it in a way I likeII Large numbers of point of view characters I normally find this makes each of them rather shallow and stereotyped GRRM is magnificent with characters and brings even the throw away non point of view ones to lifeIII Huge expanding story lines I tend to like some sort of focus but every corner you turn in this series can end up leading you down a seemingly endless rabbit hole of minor noble houses their retainers local suabbles history etc And this has irked me at points especially in the later books but it’s also kind of marvellous and makes everything feel really real and also deep rooted in a Tolkienesue way I maintain that not only is Game of Thrones a brilliant read it’s also an important one for the genre It’s meaningful to talk about post GRRM fantasy For many people indeed for a decent chunk of a whole generation of fantasy authors George RR Martin's A Game of Thrones was a step change in the genreFor me and a lot of other authors Martin's work opened our eyes to what felt like a whole different world of what fantasy writing could be and we've run out into those new territories eager to try to copy not the style or substance but the ualityIn my youth when we entered a fantasy land we were expected to suspending our belief about magic and alternate worlds but not only that We were expected to enter a sort of mythic fairy tale world where people weren't uite real They didn't feel like actual regular humans bound by the same fears worries ambitions aches and pains as you and I they felt like actors in roles cogs in a plot engine icons and ciphers They were too good or too evilFantasy had its conventions and we played within them reader and author exercised a mutual understanding regarding the rules rather like ancient Greek theatre or a musical where for no reason the cast can break from the story into a rousing song Of course I exaggerate And this isn't to say that authors didn't weave fascinating and compelling stories within those conventions The fantasy of the 70s and 80s kept me very happy and some of it was written by writers of surpassing genius Even so it was uite definitely 'apart' from the books that really touched me or showed me new things about 'what it's all about' works of literary fiction and miles distant from what 99% of the public was readingThe step I'm talking about may be entirely artificial or demonstrable fact It may be that in the 90's
