So, I’m about 150 (or so) pages into George R. R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones and, while I’m enjoying it so far, I do find myself asking the following question: Am I supposed to hate about 85% of the characters?
If that’s the case, cool. But, as of right now, I can count the number of characters I actually like on one hand:
- Jon Snow
- Tyrion Lannister
- Ned Stark
- Arya Stark
- Robert Baratheon (and I’m still a little iffy on him)
Again, this isn’t a criticism of the novel…but, more an attempt to figure out if I’m being too hard on some of the characters.
