Holy Moly! I just saw the trailer for HBO's new series Game of Thrones, based on the book by George R.R. Martin. These books are awesome. Epic fantasy at its finest. Honestly, I like this stuff way more than Lord of the Rings. Partly because these are definitely for adults. Plenty o' sex and violence, which is probably why HBO is making the series.
Last night I finished book two in the series, which is Clash of Kings. 968 pages. Yeah, they are long and full of characters. The character list alone is a good 30 pages, which is why you should read the books before watching this show. Otherwise you will be completely confused by what's going on.
But here is a taste. Be warned, the beginning is scary. Scary good!
Unfortunately, I don't have HBO. Or cable. So I guess I will only have to wait a whole year to see it on Netflix. Ugh.
