Winter is coming....

The Lovely Bones, Gone Girl......
All examples of being let down by the film version of the book.To be perfectly honest I don't think any film director, no matter how brilliant he/she is, will ever be able to capture on celluloid, what an author can create with words.

I was late discovering Game of Thrones.
Series 4 had aired before I binged on the box set.
I deliberately  didn't read the books as I didn't want any spoilers. I wanted to experience the shock effect as I watched it.

But now,seeing as the TV show has caught up with the books, that's not going to happen. Having read articles and theories about where the plots may go, I see that there is a lot of background information that can only be filled in by reading the books.

today I was very excited when this was delivered to my house, courtesy of Amazon.

Guess how I'm going to spend the long winter nights, when the snows get deeper and the winds howl around my ears.
See you in the Spring!


  1. Oh for goodness sake!
    Surely you must know that it is the written words that fire the imagination ?

  2. Oh I totally agree...normally. But as I started watching GoT and really loved it, I decided not to read the books until the TV series caught up.Reading the books now, for once I think the TV version adds to my reading as I can "see" exactly whats happening. Also Jon Snow, in real life, is better looking than anyone I could even imagine!!!
