Last night at 11:46p I posted on Facebook, “I just finished reading A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin. All I can say right now is ‘holy cats!'” Da Capo commented, “what about holy dragons?” Too funny! I’m not one to complain, but I am pretty tired today and my brain feels pretty sluggish which has made working on my author project for LIS 6530 a bit challenging.
My thoughts on the book? In comparison to all of the YA literature I’ve been reading, A Game of Thrones was definitely violent and graphic — in fact, parts of it made me blush — yet it was still a great read that held my attention. I really enjoyed Martin’s writing style — each chapter gave the perspective of a different character. Without a doubt, Arya is my favorite. I think it’s safe to say that I’ll be reading the rest of the series.
