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.
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.
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.
