Great description of what the producers were looking for from entertainment weekly article,
If this dude can pull all that off in an audition, I'm sure he will kick total *** on screen!Quote:
The Red Viper is sexy and charming, yet believably dangerous; intensely likable, yet driven by hate.
Just finished Dance with Dragons for a second time. The first time i have ever read a book twice. Can't believe how much I forgot. I will be rereading the others as well.
In the meantime I just bought Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrel to tide me over until Winter is coming is out, who knows when that will be out. Any other suggestions? Found this article helpful.
5 Fantasy Books to Read While You're Waiting for the Next 'Game of Thrones' - E.D. Kain - The Atlantic
I've professed to be a non-book reader but having some travel time on my hands I downloaded Storm of Swords, and started reading it. I found it interesting how much dialogue came almost verbatim from the books, especially in some key scenes. It's been a good experience so far, although I must admit I'm an impatient reader. I've been known to skim a chapter if I'm bored with that sliver of the story, although I haven't read the last chapters yet ahead of time. So I'm completely backwards. I read the wiki, watch the show and then read the book.
reading A Storm of Swords. Just read the part where Meera is telling a story to bran about the crannogman going to the Isle of Faces. This part threw me for a loop. "The She Wolf (I assume is Lyanna Stark) lead the crannogman to her pack the wild wolf (assume is Brandon Stark) the quite wolf (Ned Stark) and the pup who was the youngest of the four."
Am I reading this correctly and Ned had three other siblings and not two? I thought he only had two. I am also a little surprised that this scene wasn't in the TV show because to me it seems really important!
Does anyone else think that the Seconds Sons bookkeeper is actually Tywin Lannister's lost brother, Tyrion's uncle, who left to explore Valyria? I think his name was Tybiro, and Tyrion asks him if the name was a Lannister name.
I would also recommend against Malazan if you like a book that tells a story about characters. In Malazan, the story is about the world and the magic and religion of the world. Characters are discarded left and right as merely pieces in the larger game. Personally I prefer a book that follows a few point of view characters and their stories.
For "dark" fantasy I would recommend The Black Company by Glenn Cook which is a book about a mercenary company who travels around the world fighting wars, etc. Another great book which is very dark is Prince of Thorns by Mark Lawrence which is about a ruthless prince who does whatever it takes to rise to power.
I'll give The Magicians a B, and it was imaginative, but I am not that into the Narnia series so it may be lost on me a bit.
The Blade Itself, the first book in The First Law Series, is great. Just finished it. After about the first half, could not put it down. Starting the second. I recommend it.
Agree on Malazan, read the first 3... enjoyed parts quite a bit, but it was just too much. It was like reading a video game... too mnay superpowerful immortals showing up all over the place. Quit and don't think I'll ever come back to finish (Same thing with WOT).
Can't recommend the Prince of Thorns series and The First Law Trilogy strongly enough. Loved these books.
