Re: A Game of Thrones: A Song of Ice and Fire: Book One: Ch. 32 through 39
Well, I finished this book and fantasy is still not my genre .
Martin’s writing/prose is good, but this book has too many characters, too many name deviations for each character, too many unimportant characters and each one is also named, when it would have been enough to just describe him or her as a servant or a stable boy.
This world is too violent, cruel, bloody, sinister, and dark. Too much sexual violence. Looking back, I’m not even sure who was the main character, and some of them just disappeared. There was no resolution at the end and if that was done to make me read his subsequent books, he failed.
I was getting bored towards the end and found myself skipping paragraphs just to finish this book. I know that many people just love to immerse themselves into Martin’s kind of world, but I like a book with a gentler, kinder, more civilized story.
So, I’ll say it again, I read it and this definitely is not my genre. Perhaps a different author and a different book would make me reconsider?
Just my opinion, my feelings...I don't think that many people will agree with me, and that's ok,
