A Game of Thrones book club discussion open posted 24 September 2004 in Book ClubA Game of Thrones book club discussion open by Grantaire, Moderator

Alright, this discussion is now open, and I expect to leave it open for however long people feel like discussing the book. Spoilers for AGoT are okay, but please try to refrain from spoilers about the later books (or at least warn people). Post your thoughts about the book, from general liking/disliking to specific thoughts about the book. Here are some sample questions to get y'all going:

-Martin's use of history as somewhat of a parallel to his story. Did you enjoy that style?
-The violent and sexual content. Did it add appropriately to the story? Or was it overdone?
-The lack of some fantastical elements (i.e. no elves & dwarves, not too much magic). Did you feel that the sometimes lacking amount of magic detracted from the fantastical appeal?
-Characters. Did you feel characterization was done well? Were the characters realistic, especially in the context of the story?
