GAME OF THRONES: SEASON ONE
Just how good – or how bad – is Game of Thrones's production values? Its cinematography or visual effects? Its adaptation from the original book? How have the storylines been changed, and how can one simple prop forever alter a character arc?
There has been much critical feedback on HBO’s new flagship series, but few (serious) pieces of journalism have gone to the depth that Marc N. Kleinhenz’s column for Corona Coming Attractions routinely does – and even fewer have examined both the television and literary sides of the coin. Kleinhenz is in the perfect position to make such examinations; he’s written for the biggest websites in the Game of Thrones community, including Westeros.org, WinterIsComing.net, and Tower of the Hand, and he was the driving force behind the Tower of the Hand: A Flight of Sorrows anthology.
What makes this ebook an indispensable companion piece to the television series is the inclusion of all of Kleinhenz’s columns, roundtable discussions with the biggest names in the Game of Thrones community – including Elio García and Time magazine’s James Poniewozik – and an original essay exclusive to this collection. Best of all, there are no spoilers for future episodes or books, making it a safe read for all fans.
