Notes of “A Game of Thrones”

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.

关于读书的两件事

一、小说

我不是博览群书的人,即便是小说都看得不多,所以很容易数一数“家珍”。下面就说一说我看过的小说吧——武侠、言情、科幻、网络文学!

提武侠,不能不说金庸古典行文风格的14部小说书名头字对联:飞雪连天射白鹿,笑书神侠倚碧鸳。不知怎的,看小说我只喜欢看长篇,而且还要足够长,像《侠客行》这么短的我虽然看了却不爱看,所以就看了这些篇幅较长的《天龙八部》、《射雕英雄传》、《鹿鼎记》、《笑傲江湖》、《神雕侠侣》、《倚天屠龙记》。我看过的第一部金庸作品是《倚天屠龙记》,最喜欢的则是《笑傲江湖》。除了金庸作品,我也就看过黄易的《寻秦记》。

言情小说不是艳情小说,更不是色情小说。我看过的第一部言情小说是席绢的《雪儿姑娘》。由此接触到了言情小说,随后也看了许多席绢的作品:《凉夏校园纪事》、《富家女》、《浪漫一生又何妨》、《上错花轿嫁对郎》等等。此类小说语言欢快夸张、情节简单、人物性格纯粹,颇有趣味,实乃闲暇时光饱卧床榻的休闲小品。至于琼瑶阿姨的小说,恕在下抵抗力低下,那语言风格如此强大让我唯恐避之不及。 继续阅读
