This post doesn't count witch

I like most genres of books. although I do favour the fantasy/sciience fiction genre more. I also adore comics and grew up readin Desperate Dan and the gang and the Judge Dred, and X-men Marvel comics. To be honest I read most things, even boring cereal packets. I just love reading.


Currently I'm just starting on paperback book 2 of the Game of Thrones series- A Clash of Kings. by Georg RR Martin. Having throughly enjoyed reading, as well watching the tv series of the first book, The game of Thrones -A song of Ice and Fire. I'm now devouring the 2nd of the now 7 part book series.


Book 1 - A song of Ice and Fire =THE GAME OF THRONES = Genre = Fantasy Fiction.

EXTRACT FROM BOOK HERE IN PDF


Book 2 - A Clash of Kings.
Quote :

The Seven Kingdoms are divided by revolt and blood feud; beyond their Northern borders, the men of the Night Watch fight the coming of a great cold and the walking corpses that travel with it; on the other side of the ocean, the last of the Kingdom's deposed ruling house mourns her horseclan husband and rears the dragonlets she hatched from his funeral pyre. This is character-driven fantasy--we see most events through the eyes of the sons and daughters of the Stark family, the once and future Kings of the North, whose father's judicial murder started the war

If anybody is interested in reading the paperback copy of Book 1, and it's written in English only, please let me know I'm more than happy to put it for a swap for something else.

J'aime la plupart des genres de livres. même si je suis en faveur de la fantasy / fiction sciience plus. J'adore aussi la bande dessinée et a grandi readin Desperate Dan et les gangs et la Dred Juge, et X-Men Marvel. Pour être honnête, j'ai lu la plupart des choses, les paquets de céréales, même ennuyeux. J'adore la lecture.


Actuellement, je viens juste de commencer le 2 livre de poche de la Game of Thrones série A Clash of Kings. par Georg RR Martin. Ayant beaucoup apprécié la lecture, ainsi regarder la série tv du premier livre, Le jeu des Royaumes-Un chant de glace et le feu. Je suis en train de dévorer le deuxième de la série maintenant 7 réserver une partie.


Livre 1 - Un chant de glace et de feu = LA Game of Thrones Genre Fiction = = Fantasy.

Extrait du livre ici en format PDF


Livre 2 - A Clash of Kings.
Quote :

Le Seven Kingdoms sont divisés par la révolte et de vendetta; delà de leurs frontières du Nord, les hommes de la Ronde de nuit lutte contre la venue d'un grand froid et les cadavres ambulants que Voyage avec elle; de ​​l'autre côté de l'océan, le dernier des maison Royaume décision déchu pleure son mari horseclan et élève les dragonlets elle éclos de son bûcher funéraire. C'est fantastique caractère-conduit - nous voyons la plupart des événements à travers les yeux des fils et des filles de la famille Stark, les Kings de fois et l'avenir du Nord, dont le père assassiner judiciaire a commencé la guerr

Si quelqu'un est intéressé par la lecture de la copie de poche du livre 1, et il est écrit en anglais seulement, s'il vous plaît faites le moi savoir, je suis plus qu'heureux de le mettre pour un échange d'autre chose.

Whoo hoo! dancer Got book 5 of Game of Thrones 'A Dance with Dragons' yesterday. Having devoured the others in quick sucession I was impatient for this one.

Then I find out there is to be another. ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!

What I can say is, books 1-3 all follow on each other. Book 4 doesn't it focus on Kings Landing and is different format. That doesn't make is a lesser book its just throws you a bit reading it, especially if you are like me and like certain characters and want to find out whats happening to them. Then it is very annoying. But you do get to read about some of the lesser characters so to speak.

Book 5 follows on from books 1-3 again and fills in the gaps of book 4. And its a monster book.

Reading first book of Game of Thrones. First book in years I've read. Not a fan of reading, much prefer moving images than words.

Et voila ... Game of thrones en francais livres 1 et 2 .

Le Trône de Fer. Livre 1 et 2

Le Trône de fer est un cycle culte. Fantasy médiévale avec son lot de complots, trahisons, guerres, luttes de pouvoir, il se déroule dans le royaume des Sept Couronnes. Mais plutôt que de livrer une féerie épique d’aventures et de créatures extraordinaires, George R.R. Martin laisse la parole à une multitude de personnages qui tissent à travers leurs forces et leurs faiblesses l’histoire du royaume. Et mieux qu’aucun auteur, il les fait humains. Le récit s’efface, on entre dans un monde de chair, de sang. De vie. La réalité violente et crue s’éveille au fil des relations qu’entretiennent les protagonistes. Leurs doutes, leur soif de pouvoir, d’amour se révèlent. Ils ne sont plus les pions qui participent à l’Histoire. Ils sont l’Histoire, ses faiblesses, ses accès de rage et de folie, ses rêves. Construction gigantesque aux intrigues imprévisibles, le Trône de fer est vivant. On y entre facilement, on n’en sort jamais

Le Trone de Fer, Livres 3-5


Le Trône de Fer livre 3 et 5
Le Royaume des sept couronnes est sur le point de connaître son plus terrible hiver : par-delà le mur qui garde sa frontière nord, une armée de ténèbres se lève, menaçant de tout détruire sur son passage. Mais il en faut plus pour refroidir les ardeurs des rois, des reines, des chevaliers et des renégats qui se disputent le trône de fer. Tous les coups sont permis, et seuls les plus forts, ou les plus retors, s'en sortiront indemnes...


Livre 6 et 9

Le royaume des sept couronnes est sur le point de connaître son plus terrible hiver : par-delà le mur qui garde sa frontière nord, une armée de ténèbres se lève, menaçant de tout détruire sur son passage. Mais il en faut plus pour refroidir les ardeurs des rois, des reines, des chevaliers et des renégats qui se disputent le trône de fer. Tous les coups sont permis, et seuls les plus forts, ou les plus retors, s'en sortiront indemnes.

Livre 10 -12

On third book of Game of Thrones series. Loving it still. Gohol of a kindle app for my iphone, so gonna see whats around for that.

Loved the Sherlock TV series, really old one, don't know who it was but he was a great Sherlock , looked like Dracula. Might read Sherlock books. Other half likes Patricia Cornwalls thrillers. He reads them out loud sometimes when we're chilling. Not bad books in the thriller range. Kay Scarpetta series is good especially Bodyfarm. Ace book he read it all to me. Wonder if I can get him to read child tales and with the funny voices. :lol:
