Ever felt like throwing a controller or your game at the television or out of a window when the game becomes frustrating? I have.
Ever felt like throwing a book out the window or in a fire because it became frustrating to read? I have.
Current example of a book I would love to throw out the window (if it wasn't on my Kindle): Storm of Swords, book three in the Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin. I am really enjoying this series to be fair, and he is such a good author that he has sucked me in and cheered on some characters while making me hate others. When divided between the Starks and the Lannisters, I am on the Stark side and want to see all the Lannisters die (well, except for Tyrion, I actually like Tyrion). So for those of you who have read the books here is why I feel like throwing it out the window:
[spoiler] Just read the chapter entitled Catelyn...all about the red wedding, and was maddened by the fact that Martin has killed off Robb and Catelyn before they knew that Bran, Rickon and Arya were still alive. Even more maddening as Arya was very near by. I liked Eddard Stark too so was mad that he'd been killed off in the first book...why is he killing off all the good guys yet leaving the likes of Cersei, Tywin and Jaime alive? Ok, Joffrey's the worst of them and I do happen to know he doesn't make it to the end of book three which makes me really happy, but still get rid of Cersei and Tywin at least! lol [/spoiler]
