  4. My citation format is not necessarily accurate, but it works for me.

I appreciate that some people may be turned off by this constant ‘pre-blog’ notification. I choose to respect that some people may not have read these books before, like I hadn’t and so make the effort to not spoil them unless they go to the post page.

A Game of Thrones: Reflections I

Posted By on Monday, May 12th, 2014, 20:00

After five chapters, I’m going to take a slight break and discuss comment threads of the prior posts, because I have a great commenting team. Also I will probably reflect on the book so far.

Mmm… well. I’ve heard the character focus only gets worse in later books, as new characters get chapters. If I remember right, it goes from like twenty to over one hundred people. I’m not sure that I like this, as I would expect it increases the strain on the reader to remember where we’ve been. It may be, of course, that Martin has eradicated the problem with how he’s handled it, but of course I don’t know anything just yet. That will be something to watch. At least so far Martin seems conscious of the fact that we don’t necessarily need to see events from multiple viewpoints. …come inhabit the world within the pages…

A Game of Thrones – Prologue

Posted By on Saturday, April 26th, 2014, 13:30

Let’s get some basic facts down.

  1. I am using the Kindle editions, therefore all page references are based off it.
  2. I’m new to this series, so I would appreciate no spoilers and will in fact delete/edit any.
  3. All comments will be moderated to help with that. In addition I would appreciate it if people would create an account here to comment.
  4. However, the books have been out for a sufficient period of time such that in my readthrough, I will not avoid spoilers. If you are yourself new to the books, this blog is probably not for you.

Feel free to read on, if you’re okay with those facts. …come inhabit the world within the pages…

Introduction to Di Verbs Things

Posted By on Thursday, April 24th, 2014, 20:45

And now it’s time for Di Verbs Things, the part of the website where Di comes out and verbs a thing. And then writes a blog post about it.

Sadly, I will not be watching VeggieTales. At least not yet. First on the agenda is a song. Of ice and fire. Perhaps better known as Game of Thrones, by one George R.R. Martin. I plan to go chapter by chapter and write about my reactions and thoughts and will eventually get to the actual tv show when I have some cash and such like because DVDs are useful.

Currently the site is an identical theme to my main blog, partly because I’m going to have a ‘proper’ banner drawn for the blog. When I upload that, I’ll change the colours to match.

Discussion is welcome, of course. Future series I am debating blogging about include Robin Hobb’s Realm of the Elderlings and The O.C. I’d be willing to consider suggestions.
