Inside Game of Thrones Video so FANTASTIC... really getting me excited for the series.. I may even go back and try and read the first novel again.. got about halfway through before giving up on it.. it's an extremely dark fantasy.
This is a really great series, but it's also more realistic with it's politics and violence in the time frame that it's in. That being said, the series is also a very adult based series. Magic is not nice there and good does not always win.

yeah the sex with kids and incest and such it was a bit much.. but now that I know the feel of the book I might be able to enjoy it more.

While I recall the incest, I don't remember the sex with kids. Which is a statement that I don't ever thought I'd write, let alone in a public setting. I can say that some thing get much better and some things get much darker, but in those dark places, some people rise up to become better than you ever expected them to be.

I really have to re-read this series to prep myself.  Found the unabridged audiobook - might be the best bet to do get this done during the commute.

I'm talking about Daenerys who is 13 has an arranged marriage to Khal Drogo, a warlord of nomadic Dothraki. Their sex scenes are way to rough and graphic.

I had to keep telling myself while I was reading it that back when life expectancy was much shorter and 13 was considered a legal age to get married. I also imagined her older when I had to. The first book is really good, but I'm absolutely stuck on Clash of Kings. Hopefully I'll be able to finish it by the time the series comes out, because it looks fantastic.

See when I read that, I chalked it up to things that were normal in times like that. It didn't affect me because as a reader of history, 13 was the age a lot of girls were made wives to older men.
