LOL. Thanks wodin. I loved the Ice & Fire novels(read the first 4 books three times each), and the HBO version of A Game of Thrones has been fantastic.

Pretty funny. I've been watching this, even though it's fantasy.

Well you could apply medieval warfare tactics to fantasy or say Napoleonic to fantasy steampunk. So your applying a realistic warfare engine to a fantasy setting.

I appreciate medieval and Napoleonic warfare, it's just where the fantasy thing creeps in with made-up lands and peoples that I lose interest. The only thing that ever held my attention along those lines was Tolkien's stuff.

Not that there's anything wrong with it. Just not my thing.

You should try A Game of Thrones, it is not much of a "fantasy/magic" novel. As a matter of fact, it is much more of a bloody political thriller. This novel has adventure, mystery, romance, intrigue, tragedy and betrayal. And one thing I loved most is that no character in the book is "good" or "bad;" they are just people with their own motivations, shades of grey all.

And favorite characters die--regularly and unexpectedly.

The last part about favorite characters dying, true. You can never get comfortable with a character. The death of the first important character in the first book was a big surprise to me, but it made the book and series even more interesting as I realized I never would be able to predict what was going to happen next with any degree of accuracy.

Yes, the uncertainty was a big plus. It is just one of many reasons to love the Ice & Fire series.

I both hated and loved that he killed off people all the time. Some characters were so well portrayed that it felt
bad when they died. Some just deserved it (the bastidges). But it adds a layer of excitement to not know
if Frodo is going to live to throw the ring into the mountain or to think maybe James Bond is gonna get his Unit lasered off.

I am enjoying the series. But if you want copies of it do not buy the blu-ray. They are so paranoid about copying, they have almost made all but unusable. If I have had to physically turn the power off and on at the switch, because these blu-rays have frozen the machine. This series disc is a good example of why people pirate stuff!
