You are more than welcome Lord Tyrion :) I do have to admit that I find Lord Tyrion's chapters my favorite to read. Sadly though I found that his wit and wisdom did not translate very well into the new book of the same name -- it was difficult to truly appreciate his wit and wisdom outside the context of the ASoIaF novels. Some of the splendid things Tyrion says lack the rich intensity that they had without the benefit of the surrounding chapters. Ah well, at least I now have a quick resource to look up favorite quotes when I need to have them on hand.

Many thanks for the warm welcome!

Thank you yet again.

A side note: my nick's spelt with an underscore. ;o)

I read "The Wit and Wisdom of Tyrion Lannister", but I haven't bought it so far.

I chose this nickname because I'm a scholar of sorts. I like so many things, I'm into languages, law and medicine (and there I'm into neurology and psychology/psychiatry).

And of course I like the half man quite a lot.

You're welcome - and you'd also be welcome on my friends' list if you like. =o)

:cheers:

Hello,

my first post. I am currently re-reading the books. I have frequently re-read passages for better understanding when I thought I must have dropped or misunderstood a thread of the intricate tale, but now I try to read them as a whole again. I am currently halfway through Storm of Swords.

I have also watched the first and second season of the Game of Thrones show, but stopped after that, mainly because I cannot stand the dubbed version we get in the country I live in. I bought the DVDs for said seasons, then lost interest. Until my current re-read I had indeed difficulties to separate what part of the stories was in the book and what was on screen, but now I have it laid out clearly and appreciate both tellings of the story.

I find re-reading difficult, as I try to get along on the undercurrents of dreams and stories inside the story. I think I am good with a number of the mysteries. Some of them seem to have several viable interpretations and I am happy they are that way. I found a number of misconceptions and prejudices I got reading the first time round. They get all cleared up now...

I love Gaelic, although I only know some sentences (in Scot's Gaelic actually).

I love Gaelic, too. I don't know more than a few words, and I am sure I would mispronounce anything but Pradraig. Maybe I will lean a little when the Outlander series comes out. My son is enrolled in Japanese, so I hope to learn that, as well.

Japanese is great. I found Katakana and Hiragana charts on the internet.

Hey everyone!

I had never heard of ASOIAF until the airing of Season 1 of the series. After watching, I promptly caught up on the novels. Shortly after, I found this forum and, like many others, lurked for a while.

My husband and I are musicians and are working on an album of Ramin Djawadi's GoT themes arranged in a cinematic Western style. Feel free to check it out:

Hello,



Jacen Weyne here. I am a big fan of the A Song of Ice and Fire series and of the Game of Thrones television series. I first watched the Game of Thrones when season 1 came out, and then I decided I would have to buy and read the book. Did that, loved them.



I am very interested in the theories and mystery surrounding the novels. I have been lurking around this forum, and the wiki, for a while to read the theories and I think they are fascinating.



Anyway, glad to be here now and to meet other fans.

:read: Hi!


Long-time lurker here (I registered over a year ago but had been lurking anonymously before that for a while). I saw that someone had visited my profile, so why not introduce myself? I'm 28, from Finland, a university student and a mother of one. :) I read these forums a lot, but often I don't post, mostly because everything has already been said or I just don't have enough time to post.



My husband made me watch the HBO show a couple of years ago, from episode 1 I was hooked. I watched seasons 1 and 2 and just had to read the books too. I managed to avoid spoilers and I'm happy about that, I only read the "still reading" forums then. Now I've read all the books twice and currently thinking about a third reread. ^_^ I enjoy listening to the audiobooks read by Roy Dotrice. The third season of the show was a dissappointment to be honest, maybe because I already read the books? Who knows. Well, I'm looking forward to the next season of the show anyway, while waiting for the next book! Happy to be here. :)

Hey,

Well hello everyone. Little about myself I'm a mom of two daughters, I have a home business, and I'm a gamer at heart.

wonderful to see other parents joining. I am answering because I note the similarity, I am a daddy of three, also working from home and happy spending most of the time with our kids as my wife commutes to work.
I also love games, in my early years I made some money selling German-style board games, but prefer the face-to-face variants.

Hei @asile

...from Finland...

I enjoy listening to the audiobooks read by Roy Dotrice.

so do I. I enjoy the effort he makes to varying the male voices by voice colouring and British accent. Read a lot of people who seem unhappy with that, so I think not being an English native helps enjoyment!

Hello. I'm a moderator on the french ASOIAF forum, La Garde de Nuit. I'm here to see how our dear neighbours talk about this great saga. I love especially the minor character ( Mathis Rowan and Rolland Storm are my heroes ), and I hate the TV show ( sorry ).


I'm 20 years old, student in litterature in Quimper, an armorican town, I love read, walk in woods, and talk about cultural things. Maybe too much ^^


Please forgive my lame english, I do what I can.


Hope to have good time here :)
