    Long time since I've read anything by her, but agree, they're lovely books to get lost in. I remember particularly enjoying Evening Class, Quentins and Scarlet Feather.
  2. Game of Thrones

    George RR Martin has just said NZ can imprison him until he finishes Book 6 if he hasn't done it by the time he comes here in July next year for the World Science Fiction Convention https://www.nzherald.co.nz/entertainment/news/article.cfm?c_id=1501119&objectid=12233521

    code I clicked and thought what a novel and very funny association. Would make a good crossword clue.
  7. Game of Thrones

    I agree, Muggle. Don't think I've ever followed a series quite so passionately before, despite not usually watching such graphically violent films. Did you know Jon (Kit Harrington) has married Ygritte (Rose Leslie) in real life?

  9. Game of Thrones

    Agree with everything you say here, Madeleine. I wonder if any of the cast will be in the prequel? Looking forward to it and also very much looking forward to reading George R R Martin's last two books if and when they finally get published! Will be be very interesting to see how much the books differ from the series ending.

  11. Game of Thrones

    Overall I was happy with how things ended for everyone. A couple of things didn't feel quite right to me. I felt the Unsullied and the Dothraki ... I also felt it a little irresolute of Jon to This whole final series felt like it could have had so much more detail and there were a lot of characters we didn't see until the final episode, and then only very sketchily. Their stories could have been woven in like they were in the earlier series. But I think that's down to the fact that George RR Martin is such an extraordinarily good story writer whilst the the HBO writers just aren't up to his standard. I just read HBO are going to make a prequel.
