The George Martin Choose-Your-Own-Adventure Book


From: The George Martin Choose-Your-Own-Adventure Book

The reaction of this reader after his character dies is just about my reaction after 1/3 of the episodes for HBO’s Game of Thrones. By now I know the general formula: everything hopeful and joyous in the world will eventually be taken and desecrated in the most extreme way imaginable. If you find yourself gravitating towards a certain character because they show signs of, say, altruistic behaviour, that should be your first sign they are on the fast track to an especially gruesome ending – possibly murder by simultaneous freezing, burning, and crushing.

And that is the way it will always be, because George Martin is a ruthless gangster with ice in his veins and a funny little hat.
