Game of Thrones is a vast and rich TV show which spawns a whole lot of thoughts and theories. For such a mass to be presented not only coherently but also accessibly is a praiseworthy achievement indeed. The author's interpretation of one of the greatest stories of our time is informed, thoughtful and extremely enjoyable. This collection of essays was a great companion to my second viewing of GoT season 2, and I'd recommend it and its predecessor Game of Thrones Season One Essays to any Thrones fan who wishes to enjoy the show at the intellectual level it deserves.

It was great fun comparing what I felt on watching each episode with the views of the author. I look forward to seeing a similar volume on series 3. Please do not disappoint us!!

HASH(0x8c58824c) out of 5 stars More treats for Thrones fans 14 Aug. 2012
By Gladster - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had been reading Pearson Moore's essays on season two of Game of Thrones on a fan website when in the middle of the series they abruptly stopped appearing. I checked his personal website only to find that it has been taken down. Fearing that something untoward had happened I searched his name on Amazon and found that his season two essays were available for downloading. And then, just a few days ago, I discovered that the essays had been published in book form which I ordered immediately. (I'm not too fond of downloads since they are "trapped" on the device to which they've been saved. A hard copy is always available.)

I had read the sample essay on Sandor Clegane which was posted on Amazon, and I knew that I was in store for a treat. What he had to say about the Dog's character roiled around in my brain for a few days - I won't say more but leave it to the reader to discover. At the very least, I had more evidence that Pearson Moore takes only what has been revealed in the telecasts, but is able to overlook superficialities to find the depth behind the characterizations and plot. I would go so far to say that Moore has re-instilled the feeling that George R. R. Martin had -and has - much more than an action-packed and character-packed epic in mind when he picked up the pen to write GoT. And also much more than its touted "moral complexity" which has become reduced to the idea that well-drawn characters have motivations for their heinous deeds. GoT is much more than that.

The book is accompanied by illustrations some of which have been done by fan artists and some of well-known pieces of art. Though reproduced in black-and-white, they don't fail to communicate the emotional truth behind the characters. The drawings of Sansa and Arya are particularly striking on that score.

Want to understand why it's worthwhile to invest the time and effort into GoT that it demands? Moore will direct you to look beyond the obvious.

HASH(0x8c588684) out of 5 stars Elegantly insightful 13 Oct. 2012
By Pragmatist JD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Mr. Moore's essays provide an intelligent perspective to this complex small screen/literary series. A person simply looking to be entertained (nothing wrong with that) could easily categorize the series as a racy medieval fantasy. However, that person would be depriving herself of such a rich experience. Mr. Moore effectively and unsentimentally articulates the depth and complexity of characters in ASoIF. I am a great fan of the HBO and GRRM written series and understood early on that this was a special offering. I appreciate Mr. Moore's insights into a world that, while foreign and seemingly imaginary, has so much relevance in today's global environment. Keep 'em coming, Mr. Moore. I want to hear what you have to say.

Pearson Moore's reviews make for wonderful rainy day reading. Really enjoyed GRRM, but might actually be enjoying these more. Great to see what I anticipated and find a few things that I didn't.

HASH(0x8c5887a4) out of 5 stars I can't speak more highly of this book 25 Jun. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Let's put it this way, the Game of Thrones novels, and Game of Thrones HBO series, would not be nearly as interesting without this author's two books (see Game of Thrones Season One Essays Illustrated Edition). Game of Thrones comes in threes: (1) original George Martin's GoT novels; (2) the GoT HBO video series; and (3) Pearson Moore's insights. Pearson sees so much more than I.

I can't speak more highly of Pearson's books. Pearson is AMAZING. A+.

As an aside, I accidentally discovered that he wrote another book, Cartier's Ring: A Novel of Canada, a novel set in Quebec, Canada. I have a Beauregard ancestor from Quebec who emigrated to New York State by way of the Champlain River, and would like to know what it felt like to live there in wilderness days prior to 1850. I'm becoming interested in how the St. Laurence River (Seaway) has impacted the general well-being of both Canada and the USA. I haven't read it yet.

HASH(0x8c58899c) out of 5 stars Eager for the season 3 edition! 9 Jun. 2013
By Rebecca Nurse - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I may be too into ASOIAF & GOT. I spent the entire year between seasons 1 & 2 listening to the books repeatedly on audio in the car & while exercising. I have read chapter by chapter analysis of the books on various websites. On the night a new episode comes out, I will watch it live, then On Demand, & then, on HBOGO w/ interactive features & read four different online recaps.

The thing that I like best about this book (& why I paid to read it in addition to other online "recaps") is that instead of just recapping, it gave me new things to think about when contemplating GOT S02. While reading this book, I rewatched the episodes & understood them better. Things that had previously perplexed me I now understood. Things that I thought I had understood I now understood better. I can't wait for the S03 edition.
