Season two should be better than season one, because the books get better, and I love how they’ve been adapting the series. Because a lot of people into Martin seem to like Joe Ambercrombie books I started reading the Blade Itself and am loving it. It’s in a similar vein to the Song of Ice and Fire Books. “Realistic” Fantasy, where the main characters are very flawed, complicated people. What I really love about the book so far is how on target his stuff is about how dysfunctional societies are and it’s somewhat libertarian in its view of the state. Very good stuff. I will be reading all his books I think. It’s right up my alley.
