Game of Thrones

In order to keep my reading bonanza going I’ve just finished “Game of Thrones”  which according to the TV channels in a language I cant understand has just been made into TV show, and by the looks of things stars Sean Bean. (I’ve never really thought about it before now but when breaking into the US film industry he must have got frustrated with any confusion arising between him and Rowan Atkinson’s Mr Bean character.

“yeah we need that British guy, whatsisname Bean, he’ll be great as Boromir” 
Bit of a tangent.
Any way its an alright book, not really my thing but thats one of the reasons I took the plunge and read it. For those of you that haven’t a clue what I am on about, think Lord of the Rings, just not as good. Well thats my opinion (and it is my blog). I now now thats its part of a series of 5 books, something I didn’t know when I starting reading the first, I thought it was a trilogy, and although I was half expecting it to be a bit of a cliffhanger I don’t really think that the book had an ending, which after reading as much as I did I kind of think I deserve.
I’m sure there are some hard core fans out there, it has the feel of something that would encourage middle aged men and women to dress up as Knights, Barbarians and Princesses.
I dont think I’ll read the other books, I’m pretty sure I wont.  Not because this one was bad, but I think it will make a better TV show than a book.  The only real difference is that they’ll have to cut out some of the blood guts and porn and replace it with a more family friendly feel.  The blood guts and porn makes it sound more interesting than I found it, perhaps more of that and less of the page after page description of walking up a mountain path and I’d read the second one in the series.
