After Ajun introduced the TV series “Game of Thrones” to me several months ago, I thought it should be full of demons and monsters, then felt disappointed to give it up as watched first two seasons. When a lot of talks and remarks about season five were full around me, I regained some interests in it soon and watched last three seasons. The story is very complex and various, seems even no protagonists to be set for surely, weird. When decision of improving my English by reading long story was made, George R. R. Martin’s fantasy novel “A Song of Ice and Fire” should not be a bad choice.
I’ll make some notes when read it, and copy a few details that seems important or interesting.
1. About the marriage between Ned Stark and Catelyn Tully
Eddard Stark had married her in Brandon’s place, as custom decreed, but the shadow of his dead brother still lay between them, as did the other, the shadow of the woman he would not name, the woman who had borne him his bastard son.
1.1 Why does Ned refuse to reveal who’s Jon Snow’s mother ? In chapter 12, Robert talked about a wench named Wylla whom Ned ever had affairs with, Ned always was too hard on himself, except this time. He thought it dishonored him and his family, but loved his bastard son as a trueborn one. And Jon is more like Ned than other brothers. But, who’s Jon Snow’s mother still a myth.
