My new literary obsession--Game of Thrones (aka Song of Ice an Fire). I am totally loving it! The story is so detailed the world so complete and the characters are so well written they come to life as I am reading about them, good or evil. The only thing I don't like about the series is that the view and treatment of woman isn't great. I suppose that is because of the type of world it is, that doesn't mean that I have to like it. I have read the first three books. After each book, I watch the corresponding HBO season of the show on DVD. I haven't been this excited about books since The Sookie Stackhouse books (and they ended terrible, hopefully this series will have a better conclusion). I am waiting for the 4th book to come in at the library. I hope it comes in before winter break at work is over while I still have time to immerse myself in a book!
