More About the Author

Pearson Moore is the author of "Deneb," the most exciting science fiction epic of the decade. "Deneb" follows dozens of memorable characters thrown into a hostile, alien environment as they scramble to understand the deeply-layered mysteries that control their lives. As they dig into ancient visions and secrets, they discover a web of conspiracies and evil intentions that span 45,000 years of history and call into question the most basic of assumptions about human will, desire, and destiny. With profound allusions to literature old and new, "Deneb" is a story that will stay with readers for years to come.

Moore is the bestselling author of "LOST Humanity," for many years the #1 bestselling companion book to the television series LOST, written in the style that has earned him tens of thousands of followers worldwide. As well as authoring several LOST-related volumes, including "LOST Identity," Pearson has written well-received companion books for both Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad.

With over 100 essays on LOST, read at over 40,000 websites around the world, Moore is recognized as a leading authority on the groundbreaking television series. "LOST Humanity" was the #1 Bestseller in its class for 14 weeks in 2011 and several weeks in 2012. His second book on LOST, "LOST Identity," includes illustrations by renowned LOST artist ArtGUS, and concentrates on the unique characters of LOST. Moore edited the highly regarded "LOST Thought" and "LOST Thought University Edition," now required reading in many college film and drama courses.

Moore has been Featured Writer at SL-Lost.com, the Dark UFO website, Westeros.org, and WinterIsComing.com. In addition to "Game of Thrones Season One Essays" and "Game of Thrones Season Two Essays," he is author of the "Thrones Questions and Comments" series of Game of Thrones books which analyze the television series in the rich, insightful essay format that has become his hallmark.

Pearson Moore writes in several genres, including historical fiction, science fiction, and current events non-fiction. His first novel, "Cartier's Ring," was published in April, 2011. "Cartier's Ring" is the story of the founding of Canada in 1608 as seen from the Aboriginal perspective.

I truly enjoyed this dissection of the Game of Thrones series by Pearson Moore. Since those who are reading ahead are awaiting Book Six, and those who are watching the series are awaiting Season 2, Pearson's discussions are a fantastic way to satisfy your Game of Thrones obsession while you wait. While I didn't agree with all his insights, I found invaluable his discussions on the dire wolf pups, and on the kidnapping of Leana and it's hidden implications. I also thoroughly enjoyed his comparisons of the series to the books. Reading the discussions of how different writers handle the same scene is catnip to me, and I hope he will include more of these insights when the next season rolls around.

I am not much of a writer myself, but I absoloutly loved this book. His commentry on each episode and the POV charectors are amazing. It stirs your mind. I have also read his Season two essays. I enjoyed it so much that I have purchased now the illustrated version and will now reread it now that I finished season two's. Looking forward to Season three og Game of thrones, and pray that he writes again

I thoroughly enjoyed these essays, they provide an excellent analysis of GoT Season One, highly recommended. The essays discussed aspects and themes I didn't even remotely consider when I was watching show, and my appreciation for the TV show increased dramatically as a result. Respect to the Author.

Format: Paperback
I have to confess that by the ninth episode I had had my fill of GoT. The heavy emphasis on sex and violence much exceeded what was present in the book, which I read after viewing each episode. While that may primarily be due to HBO's perceptions of what audiences want to see rather than what the showrunners wished to present, it got to the point that I had to steel myself to watch the series. Who knows what stomach-turning event would show up unexpectedly?

When I came across Pearson Moore's book of essays while surfing through Amazon's offerings on GoT, I was intrigued enough to buy it from another source. And when I started in on the first essay, I couldn't stop. Moore goes much beyond the obvious "might makes right" and "no good deed goes unpunished" that GoT seemingly puts forth. All of his points are backed up evidence from the televised episodes, and as I read, I asked myself why I hadn't seen what he had seen. Perhaps the gore, the naked bodies, and torture had something to do with it.

Each episode is treated separately in its own chapter making it easy for the reader to reference the source of Moore's interpretations, and he includes dialogue from the telecast to back up his ideas. In addition, there are chapters devoted exclusively to Ned, Bran, Jon, Tyrion, and Daenerys as well as to the direwolf scene and the claimants to the Iron Throne.

I was left with just one question. Who are you Pearson Moore, and why didn't I see as deeply and as thoughtfully as you did?

By maddux355 on February 9, 2013
Format: Kindle Edition
This volume, which contains numerous essays on the Game of Thrones television show (first season) is insightful, provocative and enjoyable, and will serve as a sound companion for novices and longtime fans alike. My main gripe, and it is a small one, is that the volume is sprinkled with inapt analogies to recent U.S. political history, reflecting the author's left-wing biases. I would prefer if the author, who is a foreigner, would draw from his own political culture, as his grasp of ours is a mile wide but an inch deep. Additionally, the author sometimes passes off as his own insights conclusions that are obvious to anyone who has read the novels. This is a cheap ploy that I hope will be avoided in future editions.
