I swear, the covers of romance novels all look the same. They probably read the same too.

I know some smut books can be kind of in-you-face, but I think Mr. Bunny might be overdoing it a bit... Laughing

If Helen needs any help digging her hole, I've got a shovel she could borrow. Laughing

Ronnie may have problems with the whole Mormon thing in general, but she seems to understand them pretty well. I predict she will end up being like a helpful 'sister' to Helen in the end. Sometimes she tries to hide it, but Ronnie's really a sweet person inside.

Yes, totally Game of Thrones Very Happy

I read the first book in the series and still need to read the others that are out! I also haven't gotten around to watching the TV show.

Re: why people like all the bloody stuff: it has to do with the structures that make stories compelling.

For a narrative to hold attention, there has to be a source of tension. Something at stake, some sort of conflict. It is entirely possible to do this without bloody stabbing and murder and all that horrid stuff. See several of Ms. Natalie's arcs, for example--Academic Rivalry stands out to me, for this and also for hitting close to home on a personal matter. However, life-and-death conflicts have inherently high stakes, thus high suspense and tension, thus a lot to keep people on the edges of their seats.* People also tend to exhibit interesting behavioral extremes in extreme situations. Mortal peril demands a different kind of human mettle. Think of it like a roller coaster with extreme highs and lows and spins. A tame roller coaster is a little boring, yes?

*A caveat: this works better if the characters are also well executed enough for the audience to care about their lives and goals.

That's a basic narrative structure argument. There are other arguments, too, and lots of interesting articles out there, like maybe this one to start:

I'm about where Helen is at when it comes to Game of Thrones. I've never watched it, nor do I much care to. Just not my cup of tea.

On the topic of people enjoying violent shows, it may also be fantasy escapism. For example: The Walking Dead. While we may care about the characters, the primary draw of the show is that it is very easy to picture yourself among the survivors. "I would definitely be one of the survivors." Fantasy. "And I could do a lot of cool and useful things while unfettered from modern society." Escapism.

In a sense, all fiction could be considered a form of escapism.

Because I admire your "going against the general flow".

I've had friends send me links to YouTube and Wikipedia, BEGGING me to get into the GoT fandom, as well as several others, and they just can't seem to understand that I am simply not interested.

I'm not interested in the show, but I wouldn't mind reading the books. I enjoy fantasy books like Narnia, Harry Potter, The Chronicles of Prydain and Lord of the Rings so I'd probably like these books. I've lately been reading The Mists of Avalon. Excellent book.

Agreed, Kanna! I watch very little tv, but I read a lot of fantasy and scifi. All the fans have made me want to check out at least the first few GoT books. I have liked others of George RR Martin's books. Good excuse to visit the used book store! :-)

I liked Gordon R Dickson's Dragon Knight series ("The Dragon and the George" and sequels), and CJ Cherryh's "Fortress of ___" series.

Who wrote "Mists of Avalon"? What's it about?

Marion Zimmer Bradley wrote The Mists of Avalon. It's basically a retelling of the legend of King Arthur but from the female characters' point of view, particularly Arthur's half-sister Morgana/Morgaine.
