Transcript of A Game Of Thrones

By: George R. R. Martin
A Game Of Thrones
Summary
In a place with winters and summers that can last for years. Eight families fight for control of the realm. With a child as the king and many young lords, who will win the Game Of Thrones?
Brandon Stark is a young 7 year old. He is the 2nd youngest child and is only older than baby Rickon. He loved climbing the broken tower. He lost the use of his legs because he "fell" off the tower but no one knows that he was pushed off because he witnessed Jamie (kingslayer) Lannister and Queen Cersei committing incest. His direwolf is named Summer.
Brandon Stark
(Bran)
Jon Snow (Eddard Stark's Bastard son)
Jon Snow is Eddard Starks "Bastard son" and he is Robbs age. He is there when they find the 5 normal direwolfs and the albino one which he took for himself because it was different like himself in it's family. His direwolf is named ghost. A theory is that he is the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark and is the true heir to the throne.
Eddard Stark (Ned)
Eddard Stark is the lord of Winterfell. He has 5 children, they are: Robb, Sansa, Arya, Brandon (Bran), and Rickon. He fathered a bastard son Jon Snow. He is married to Lady Catelyn. He is very smart and knows how to deal with people who cross him and who are traitors to the kingdom.
Arya Stark
Arya is a young 9 year old and looks like her father because she has his hair while her true born brothers and sister all have red hair. She is given a sword by Jon which he named Needle after the thing she "loved". She is given a direwolf which she named Nymeria. She is the only girl in the Stark family that actually thinks of Jon as part of the family.
Sansa Stark
Sansa is 11 years old and looks like her mother. She has a direwolf that she named Lady. She is betrothed to Prince Joffrey ( the queen and the kingslayers child). Her direwolf is killed because Arya's direwolf bit Joffrey and the queen ordered it killed. She doesn't like Arya because of this and she doesn't accept Jon to be her bother and makes a point of calling him her Half Brother.
Lady Catelyn is married to Lord Eddard. She doesn't like Jon and the fact that he is there to live with them even though he isn't her son. Her children; Robb, Bran, Rickon, and Sansa all look like her while Jon and Arya look like Lord Eddard.
Lady Catelyn
Tyrion Lannister
Tyrion Lannister is the son of Lord Tywin. He is the brother of Queen Cersei, and Ser Jaime. He is a dwarf and is called a Halfman by the Stone Crows and Black Ears. He is a friend of Jon Snow. He knows that his father doesn't love him out of the fact he is his son but tolerates him because of the his name Lannister.

Theme
The theme of A Game of Thrones, is power. This is because the Lannister's and Stark's are fighting for who gets control of the Iron Throne.
Symbolism
Page 761
: "Never, the darkness cried out, never never never" this is showing that death will occur soon.
Pages 479
: " Sanas felt tears in her eyes. "He is not! He's not the least bit like that old drunken king." "Gods" Ned swore softly "out of the mouth of babes..." This is showing that the children can say things that they don't know are true but can explain what adults are tring to figure out.
Reaction
I thought that this book is great and it also shows you how different people see events in time and how they will react to them. I thought that this book was interesting by showing the different points of views even if they are in the same area and it is talking about the same event like when they talk about Neds death.
Recommendation
This book is a good book for people who like fantasy and action. It is good for people ages 20-40. This is because it has many intense, sexual and violent parts. These parts also include incestuous and child and adult relations.
Quote
My favorite quote in this book is when the Queen Cersei and Ned are talking in the Godswood," When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. There is no middle ground." I liked this quote because it sums up the book in a simple way and is straight to the point. This is a fun, simple quote from the book on page 488. That sums up the entire mentality of many people in the area.
