Best Kick-in-the-Nuts' EVER!!! posted 09 February 2006 in Literature DiscussionBest Kick-in-the-Nuts' EVER!!! by Rellion, Candidate

Best 'Oh crap!' moments for me were --

1: ASoIaF Game of Thrones - The death of Eddard Stark. This had me grinding my teeth and going 'you bastard!' but it's also when I knew the series was going to be damn good. The Red Wedding I could feel coming several pages before it happened, so I wasn't near as surprised and it doesn't make its way onto this list for me.

2: 1st Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, Book 1 - The rape of Lena by Thomas Covenant. I still refer to it as 'Page 86' due to where it is in my edition of it. I tossed the book across the room when that happened and didn't pick up the book again for a week. I finished the series and it is still one of the greatest trilogies I have ever read. After reading it, I could never bring myself to read Robert Jordan or RA Salvatore's novels again. view post
