I got hooked on the TV series and found myself constantly pausing the show to consult the Blu-Ray guide that HBO embedded in each episode. After watching season 2, I decided that I would read the series so I would understand it better. Since I'm a teacher, I work pretty hard from August-May reading a lot of academic books and students essays, and I have no time for pleasure reading during the school year.
I finally got around to starting the series this summer and I am really enjoying it, having just finished book one. But given the complexity of the mythology and the huge cast of characters, I am going to move through each book very slowly.
Unfit, indeed. Does this teacher still have his job? I cannot imagine trying to justify this in any school I have worked in.
