I have succumbed to a new passion.
After all, we all like new shiny things that make us happy
I had no doubt I would enjoy “Game of Thrones“.
Described as a series reminiscant of LOTR, produced by HBO (they aren’t shy, are they…), it has all the markings of a hit.
The series is based on A Game of Thrones, first book in A Song of Ice and Fire, a series of high fantasy novels by American author George R. R. Martin.
As far as I can tell (I’m in mid book 1) the series is very in keeping with the book. Bless HBO, when they get it right, it really is fireworks
Who can forget Sex and the City or True Blood!
I adore Sean Bean, who plays Eddard Strak, the lord of the North (I’ll take anything with the words lord and north in it).
I fell for him after watching Lady Chatterley’s Lover, based on a novel by the same title by D.H. Lawrence. He was simply breathtaking. If you haven’t seen it, do yourself a favour!
While we’re on the subject of hotties, I recommend you check out Ned Stark’s bastard son (no, I’m not being offensive, this is how he is described) – Jon Snow.
He is a steward in the Night’s Watch.
Although confined to the frosty Wall protecting the kingdom, he manages to set my heart aflame
He reminds me of another scruffy man, with long flowing black hair and rugged good looks.
Care to venture a guess who I may be referring to?
Grizzly Gizzy may have had a dodgy wolf tattoo, planted on that beautiful arm, but Snow actually has a direwolf called Ghost.
It is true that Jon Snow, played by Kit Harington, is young.
In the book he is described as a 14-year-old boy, but in the series he looks grown up enough to me
He is an extremely likable character and I can’t wait to see how the story progresses.
