5.0 out of 5 stars Thought provoking and fun essays for the devoted 28 Feb 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I truly enjoyed this dissection of the Game of Thrones series by Pearson Moore. Since those who are reading ahead are awaiting Book Six, and those who are watching the series are awaiting Season 2, Pearson's discussions are a fantastic way to satisfy your Game of Thrones obsession while you wait. While I didn't agree with all his insights, I found invaluable his discussions on the dire wolf pups, and on the kidnapping of Leana and it's hidden implications. I also thoroughly enjoyed his comparisons of the series to the books. Reading the discussions of how different writers handle the same scene is catnip to me, and I hope he will include more of these insights when the next season rolls around.

Looking forward to Season three og Game of thrones, and pray that he writes again

I thoroughly enjoyed these essays, they provide an excellent analysis of GoT Season One, highly recommended. The essays discussed aspects and themes I didn't even remotely consider when I was watching show, and my appreciation for the TV show increased dramatically as a result. Respect to the Author.

5.0 out of 5 stars A treat for Thrones fans 14 Aug 2012
By Gladster - Published on
I have to confess that by the ninth episode I had had my fill of GoT. The heavy emphasis on sex and violence much exceeded what was present in the book, which I read after viewing each episode. While that may primarily be due to HBO's perceptions of what audiences want to see rather than what the showrunners wished to present, it got to the point that I had to steel myself to watch the series. Who knows what stomach-turning event would show up unexpectedly?

When I came across Pearson Moore's book of essays while surfing through Amazon's offerings on GoT, I was intrigued enough to buy it from another source. And when I started in on the first essay, I couldn't stop. Moore goes much beyond the obvious "might makes right" and "no good deed goes unpunished" that GoT seemingly puts forth. All of his points are backed up evidence from the televised episodes, and as I read, I asked myself why I hadn't seen what he had seen. Perhaps the gore, the naked bodies, and torture had something to do with it.

Each episode is treated separately in its own chapter making it easy for the reader to reference the source of Moore's interpretations, and he includes dialogue from the telecast to back up his ideas. In addition, there are chapters devoted exclusively to Ned, Bran, Jon, Tyrion, and Daenerys as well as to the direwolf scene and the claimants to the Iron Throne.

I was left with just one question. Who are you Pearson Moore, and why didn't I see as deeply and as thoughtfully as you did?

4.0 out of 5 stars Enhances the appreciation of the TV show 3 Feb 2012
By N. Podaci - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The author encourages the reader/viewer to form his or her own opinions but I appreciated the author's opinions on so many aspects of the story and its characters, as seen on TV. I had not read the books and the scope of the story at times felt overwhelming. Now that HBO is running the first season again, in advance of the second season, I really appreciate having this book of essays as a guide. Thank you, Mr. Moore!
