Dear oh dear, I’ve finally caved and bought a Kindle to share with my wife. Typically, because I’m a Philistine, the first book I bought was Game of Thrones. I know, I know, I’m extremely late to the party, but I might as well start somewhere. But what are you guys reading at the moment?
To be perfectly honest, I think the Game of Thrones TV show actually feels like a more subtle, well-made production compared to the book its based on. I’m about 30 chapters in, and I’m not a huge fan of the writing, which feels a bit flat to be perfectly honest. I think George R. R. Martin is incredible at universe-building, and that’s clearly the strength of this book, but sentence to sentence it feels a little laboured and dull.
Still. I’m reading it and enjoying it for the most part. I just hate everything.
Anyway, let us know what you’re reading at the moment in the comments below!
