I have come across a few books in my life that have left me so enthralled I had to laugh when the characters laughed, cry when the characters cried, and jump up and down in joy at the characters triumphs. I have been reading such a series for the last month. I’m sure you’ve heard of it: A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin. I am on the third book in the series, A Storm of Swords. And at one point last night, when done reading a particular chapter, I wanted nothing more than to throw the book through the window I was so enraged by what I had just read… But I also wanted to keep reading! There have been plenty of things that have left me… disturbed throughout this series. Things that, while atrocious nowadays, were more likely commonplace a thousand years ago. Now, this series is by no means meant to be historical. It is a work of Fantasy. But I had to accept things happening in this world that made my skin crawl. It is the way the world George R. R. Martin built works. And there are things in this world that are wondrous as well as treacherous.
