A teaser for Season 2 – I’m pumped.
Last year I got hooked on a series airing on HBO, at first watching because I’m a sucker for anything with Sean Bean, then getting pulled in by the characters weaving their way throughout the realm. What started for me as just another reason to Boromir with a sword again turned into not being able to wait for the following week’s episode. Soon after the end of the first season ended I hungered for more information, diving online in search of what happens to the characters. I couldn’t wait for the next season to come out, I needed answers. I soon bought the first four books, book one was a breeze to get through as I had just seen the series on TV and it felt like a great retelling with the interesting little details television cuts out. Book two these were the details I was looking for, filling my head with the story of how the characters’ journeys continue. It sets the stage for what continues to be a batter for the whole realm where practically every man is king of his part of the woods.
I am currently wading through book three and enjoying every second I get to spend invested in the characters. Sometimes its frustrating to be reading a chapter and enjoying the journey only to reach the end and know that you get whisked away to another character. What amazes me is that its still holding my interest, I wouldn’t call myself an avid reader, but the series keeps pulling me back in. The vignettes of stories that unfold all over the world George R. R. Martin has created are so tightly bound together that it makes you feel attached to everything.
If you haven’t started watching Game of Thrones – start. Season 2 begins in April.
