    Guy Gavriel Kay

    Yes, Under Heaven is my new favorite. I like Tigana, but the ending bothered me a bit. Not that everything must be tidy, but it was a little jumbled
  2. What is the market for PhDs in your field? Here in the US, the only person I know who did a doctorate in geography is now teaching at a university. It seems to make sense for psychologists to get them here in the Sates. But if you can do one for the fun of it and get a job in Israel, I would say go for it. Being a student is fun

    Atwood's 'The Handmaid’s Tale' on Hulu

    Not one to poke your eye out. When I read the last line, I was enviously thinking "I wish I had written that"

    Atwood's 'The Handmaid’s Tale' on Hulu

    What? With that great last line? "Any questions?" I must agree that I don't care for her much. But the Handmaid's Tale is her best, I think

    Peaky Blinders Season 3 - Spoilers

    well, good. Glad Nextflix is picking it up. The Brits have all the best shows. I cannot say that I enjoy Peaky Blinders, but I like the gritty feel of it. I also like Ripper Street (is that the name?), but it got all maudlin with the ridiculous ending. Iskaral Pust :: it is a lot like the Grandfather in certain respects. But the settings and costumes make me forget that

    So who would you bend the knee to?

    Beric, if I wanted to live. They get quite a bit done. But as one can only bend the knee to a king -- Robb Stark

    How do i find or read sample chapters?

    I agree. I printed off one of the Tyrion chapters from ADwD. Practically memorized it ("Where do the whores go?"). By the time the book came out, I could barely make myself read it one more time. I read the same bit. Martin says he will not read or release any new TWoW chapters.

    That is a lot of mistakes I understand the pictures are nice...
  9. I do not quite understand how this thread works, but I am enjoying it. Thank you for all the work.

    How have you started reading the aSoIaF books?

    I started reading the series when the first book came out. This board did not exist at the time. I read GoT straight through, and then went back and read each POV's character one as if it were a book. When the second book came out, I started getting characters mixed up. I made index cards for each character, reading Clash the same way I read GoT. That grew as each book came out. I have two 18' 3x5 card index boxes filled with notes on characters. prophecies, and dreams, etc. I have cross-referenced them. Yes, I am old school. Then this Board came to my attention, and I added things. I might point out that there are short stories and a book out there that give you little hints as to the story line as well. I have purchased and watched two seasons of the HBO show. I had read LotR many, many times before the movies came out. I do not want anything from the HBO show to shade what I have read. I understand Martin has told the HBO folks how the book series will end. I don't want the television series giving me "hints" or telling me things that may or may not happen in the books. Like I said, I am old school. Have fun reading them.
