The past few weeks have been traumatizing and Games of Thrones is partly to blame for that. I started reading the book and watching the show recently, and I can't say which I hate more. Let's start with the book, the author, George R. R. Martin, seems to have written the book in some drunken stupor and all his sick, lurid not to mention porn-ish fantasies have been given free rein here. There are too many plot lines, and too many deaths... each time you really start to like a character and BHAM! he is killed immediately. What is that, you kill off all the main characters and let the dregs of society dictate the rest of the book. When Ned Stark dies I was like what the... heck, he was the only person with integrity and values and you kill him off and let his family flounder. And I was so hoping Ned Start would tell Jon Snow, who his mother was... was hoping for another beautiful love story there. I don't know if that ever materializes, I read only the first book 'Game of Thrones' in this series. The book has more plots than a cemetery, was difficult to keep up with the author's nonsense. The Khal Drogo bit was intriguing, so was the part about the dragons. But inevitably the Khal Drogo goes to the night lands and Rob Stark dies too... why is that, why can't Cersei or her son die? And this author has something against brothers and sisters, he makes them incestuous. Ughhhh, I shuddered when I read that... to keep the bloodline pure, they breed within themselves.
Okay coming to the HBO series, it's more graphic and sick than you imagined while reading the book. First, I hate that they brutally beheaded a horse, I almost flinched... got online at once to see if any animals were harmed during the making of this series. Next, I hated that scene where a grown up spoilt brat suckles on his mother's breast, it was the creepiest scene ever. I had to scrub my eyes with soap after that. The killing is rather macabre and sickening, and the make out scenes are quite graphic and disgusting. Everybody is either busy killing or doing it. I can't understand why such a terrible book was selected to be made into a series, and I can't understand how this demeaning and highly unwatcahble series seems to be winning awards and making a name for itself. I say unwatchable because after the beheading of the horse in episode five, I couldn't watch the show... dragged through it to watch the bearable parts of the Khaleesi, Jon Snow and Brandon Stark. The only actor worth watching is Jon Snow, he's cute with his curly black mane and his affection towards his Stark brothers and sisters. But otherwise the whole thing is just a mess, not worth watching or reading.
This is Jon Snow (Moon of my life... hahhhaha)Okay, fans of 'A Song of Ice and Fire' and the television series 'Game of Thrones', don't be sending me hate mails... I'll have no time to read them, cause I'll be busy watching Downton Abbey. No, I'm kidding... I don't like Downton Abbey either, it's a never ending saga, kinda like a Danielle Steel book.
