Four months ago, a new show started in the US called Game of Thrones. It was a TV series based on the first book from a series of epic fantasy novels called A Song of Ice and Fire by an amazing writer called George Martin. Now, as I started watching the show, it was really interesting. In fact, I prefer to say it was really amazing. The anticipation and shit… it was really good. I was also interested in how much the TV show followed along with the book. And according to people who had read the books, Brian Kirk had done a pretty neat job. Albeit, he skipped out on some minor details and things, he basically managed to keep the storyline in check and didn’t mess things up. Hearing this, I was only able to think of one thing:
FUCK YOU TED RAIMI!!!!
Yes. Fuck Ted Raimi, the retarded sack of half eaten kolanut who created the TV travesty that the world came to know as The Legend of the Seeker.
You may have heard of it. It went on for two seasons. Two seasons in which that failure called Raimi managed to destroy one of the best fantasy stories I have ever read.
And that is the point, The Sword of Truth series, Books 1 & 2 from which Legend of the Seeker *spits* was adapted, is probably my favorite book set ever. And I know that I’m meant to write on one book that I love, but it’s my blog so take it like that.
Truthfully, I don’t know what precisely I’m meant to write, or what lessons I learned from the books that I should write here, but that’s a book (or books in this case) that I love. Yes I’m being lazy. Bite me.
