Subject: RE: BS: A game of thrones
Pretty damn good I would say. As I remember too - Very little reliance on fantasy. Apart from zombies could have been set anywhere in a history where there were swords and spears. In fact, delete the apart from zombies bit. There are plenty of brain dead walking around anyway so I guess it could have been set anywhere :-)
Seriosuly though - I can see it would ne veryone's cup of tea but I did enjoy it. I thought the chracters came across pretty well given that in this case they were given only an hour to sell themselves. OK - I have the advantage of having read the books but I am pretty sure that anyone who hadn't would have picked up on the mega-baddies at least!
