    "Moral ambiguity" is overrated and overestimated

    May I ask if you're a Christian? I agree with your assertions regarding moral ambiguity and I believe that there exists a distinction between "good" and "evil." However, I'm looking at this through a Christian lens, which tends to favor moral absolutism rather than moral relativism. On the other hand, this is a fictional novel and I think one of its strengths is that it challenges our notions of what is considered moral or not in universe. This adds a complexity that creates truly fascinating characters and ultimately a richer reading experience. Stannis is my favorite character and I do not consider him to be evil. That said, he's made some extremely questionable decisions throughout the series that are, at the very least, morally ambiguous. Without that aspect of his character, I would find him to be rather one-dimensional (albeit still hilarious)...
