Game of Thrones! It does this thing where its just so incredibly boring that I wonder why I keep reading, and then it's good for a minute, and then it's incredibly boring again.

Please, book, please. Uncle.

I tried it (the whole series, mind you). It does not get better. I realize now that I'm far better off just watching the TV show when it comes on HBO.

Part of me wants to act all dramaturg-y and be all, "You have not established the importance of all this plotting, scheming, and bloodshed. Why should anyone care who sits on the Iron Throne?"

I tried the first book and never finished it, which is unusual for me. When series 1 finished, and I reaslied I would have to wait until April, I thought I might even buy the second book. But then I came to my senses. I think it's meant to be for tv.

It gets much. much better after the first book. And then, at book four, it gets much, much worse.

I have friends who love them, and there are lots of bits in particular I like, and characters I like a lot. Then, you know, you have long patches with Roose Bolton or Lord Beric and... who the fuck are these guys?
