Reading the A Game of Thrones; in the Ned Stark chapter is a difference between the HBO series and the book.
In The HBO series, when Ned Stark is encountered by Jaime Lannister after Tyrion is captured by Lady Stark, and they sword-fighting, a soldier stabs Ned’s leg behind and that stops the fight there; I had noted this scene a while ago, saying this was a nice thing Jaime character ever did prior to losing his hand.
Well, I take it back – in the book this scene does not appear. Rather Ned is heavily hurt, mostly by his horse slipping. I must say this section in the book is not as exciting as the way it was done by the TV series.
For a show that very nicely kept on track with the book, this change of course, is interesting.
As a result, I not only wonder who George RR Martin wrote these highly creative saga, but also how the show producers made choices to change the book sections.
Back to reading.
