Well I have begun reading the Game of Thrones, or would we call it a story of Ice and Fire? Either way, I'm reading it. I have yet to finish the first book, but it has enthralled me completely. The tales of the Lords, Ladies, those that take the Black, the commoners, the Targaryens, the Khal of the East, Direwovles, Others, and just about everything else is absolutely magnificent. This is some high fantasy with political intrigue. And I am loving every single sentence of it. So far Lord Eddard Stark and good Jon Snow (and Ghost) are my favorite characters. Arya might be my third favorite. And I am very much enjoying the interactions and stories of Danerys (sp?) and Khal Drogo. There are so many twists and hidden whispers (looking at you Varys) in the tale it is just fascinating. At first I thought it was merely a medieval era political intrigue series. However, there is quite a bit of fantasy as well. I'm posting this because I imagine at least a few of you read and don't solely rely on digital and electronic forms for your entertainment needs. Now don't spoil the book for me and we aren't discussing the show here. By all means, otherwise, discuss!
