what is it with George RR Martin and love?


I do not know what recently fascinates me more about the book “A Game of Throne” by the author George RR Martin; his creativity or his thoughts/observations on love?

I am reading a Jon Snow chapter in the book and there is a sentence with a similar tone to “The things I do for love” (by Jaime Lannister) and “The lies we tell for love” (by Ned Stark).

While Mormont at the Night Watch telling Jon Snow about the death of King Robert and the arrest of his father, Ned Stark, he says “They say the king loved to hunt. The things we love kill us every time, lad” (page 561, A Game of Thrones, GRRM).

 

Lots to think about.
