TOPIC: GoT: Winter is comming

GoT: Winter is comming 30 Mar 2012 21:08 #45043

Monday the 2nd of April will see the release of the second season of george r. r. martins and HBOs legendary fantasy series "a song of ice an fire".
in case you have not seen the first seasons (a game of thrones) yet I can only recommend that to all of you, only 10 episodes and more than just worth the time.
I personally am far ahead in the story as I have read the 5 books but that wont keep me from watching the, far inferior but still awesome, series while waiting for book 6&7.
Enjoyed Lord of the Rings have you? This is for you!

hello Metti,

never heared of it, but it looks promissing.
Being a Lord of the Rings fan (red the books many times, even before the movies came out) it looks promissing.
will surely search for the books and read them.(You say the books are better than the movies)

thanx for the advice.

(an old one, but you may have read them already. try the DUNE books written by Frank Herbert. i love volume 1 and 5. but they are all worth reading. the movie DUNE is only a very slim shade of what the books are)

BTW, have you ever read the Silmarillion by Tolkien?
if you love the Ring books and gone tru the Hobbit, this is a must.
its difficult, but every piece of the puzzle comes in its place

greetings

Bobieb

BTW, maybe this is the start of a very promissing Thread??

Hi

I'm not a fun of Lord of the Rings. But as a recomandation for what bobieb say, try Dune also The Children of Dune, I robot and R-Daniel(Issac Assimov), the 7 series of Foundation(Assimov too), Efremov, Ivan A. - Nebula From Andromeda, and my favorite book Caves of Steel (Assimov too).

Best regards.

Hi,
I have also red LotR books few times and lots of other books Tolkien has written i.e. Silmarillion, Roverandom, Hobbit, Unfinished Tales and so on...

And last summer I watched this Game of Thrones first season. And I must say, that this is way much better than LotR. After watching first season I red first 3 books of GoT and it keeps getting better and better! Now I have to take a little pause because of work and school. But next summer I will read rest of them.

And yes, i have been waiting this 2nd season like christmas. All trailers looks awesome and story keeps getting bigger. I can easily say, that this is best TV series that has ever been made. I like the way it's made, not so much fantasy and great people, huge world, nicely written story and you can never say what happens next.

Something I would like to recommend. You should read this serie of books: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Tales_of_Alvin_Maker
In Card's world, many people have a limited supernatural ability, or "knack" to do some task to almost perfection

Its about North American history but with slight of fantasy and nice story telling. There is alternative history where things goes pretty much different than they went in real world. I have red this story also two or three times, Its 7 books, but only 6 is written so far, last book is coming some time in the future.

Re:GoT: Winter is comming 06 Apr 2012 11:30 #45077

Could anyone tell me who this insanely hot "Lord of the flames" lady is? And the guy she's being nailed by on the map table?

I just can't remember them. Who are they?
I didn't read the books, and they don't seem to have been on the first season...

He is Stannis Baratheon, (dead) Roberts oldest borther and Joffery being a bastard the rightful heir to the throne. He would have been Ned STarks first choice for next king as he had every right to. Roberts younger brother, Renly, tried to convince him to flee, which Ned refused. Lord Peter Baeylish (Littlefinger) convinced Ned to try and seize power and got betrayed (by him and Janos Slynt, the cpatain of the city watch) which got him killed.
Thats all you know about Roberts brothers so far (just from the series).

The red lady is a priestess of R'hlor, the lord of light, which is an alternative to the 7 gods (actually 1 god with 7 different faces/identities). R'hlor isnt popular in Westeros (the 7 kingdoms) but has many priests across the Narrow Sea. (you will also meet another priest of R'hlor in westeros in the 3rd book).
I dont quite get why she has power over Stannis in the series but in the book Stannis' wife plays a larger role and she is obsessed (the reader is led to believe that the red lady "enslaved her mind") with her and forces her on Stannis. You will also see that she does have visions which come true and she does have magical powers.
In the book Stannis does NOT screw her on the map table, Bronn does NOT become cpatain of the city watch but of Tyrions personal guard and Craster does NOT catch Jon out in the woods (cause Gilly only tells them that he feeds the boys to the wights, they never see it or know if its true).
The series makes shit just waaaay too simple.

Re:GoT: Winter is comming 08 Apr 2012 02:34 #45104

book 1-4 in the official HBO pack are like 20€ on amazon.
the series does not even come close to the books (as always with books and movies) but stuff in the series just happens and you think "wow nice story". in the books you actually know WHY stuff happens and what motivates the characters.
there is a big twist comming up with Theon Greyjoy for example and I am getting the feeling that you wont really be able to fully understand WHY he does what he does.
