The funny thing is, with most things: War, violence and all that are A O.K to show, but the second anyone mentions Sex or Language: Hide the Children. It's stupid.
Drop the F-bomb on air? Get fined by the FCC and sued by people.

Show a clip of someone offing themselves while trying to run from the cops? Issue an apology and it's over.

And wallowing in butthurtness.

Anyway, back on topic, the book I'm reading is pretty slow-paced and I love it that way :3

Alright the truth is I read A LOT. So much in fact that I blame my bad memory on it. Like a computer that has way more information than it can hold, I skip around and jump a bit. I completely
regurgitate anything useless like directions, or names, or what I ate for dinner five minutes ago.  ;)         
       Anywho, my point is that I read a lot and so, for a book to be called my favorite amongst the tens of thousands of other books I've gone through is quite an accomplishment. And one that is always changing as I read more.

My favorite right now is actually a series (it's only three books, don't freak out).    The first book is called The Way Of The Shadows. I highly recommend reading it.   It's violent, and gory, and hilarious in a dark way.  It makes you hate all people, and then love them again.    The only problem I have with the entire thing is the cheesy cover (no pun intended, 'cause you know, I'm Cheese ;) )   When I first saw the cover or even read the back I wasn't particularly thrilled, and almost didn't get it. But I did because I had been going through a phase where I was burning through books even more than usual and was hooked by the first page (yeah, yeah, don't judge a book by it's cover, whatever) 
     It's an awesome book.  Please read it.    Even if the cover looks like a crapy attempt to look like Assasin's Creed. Once again:
              The Way Of The Shadows,  by Brent Weeks

Let us count the reasons Game of Thrones is adult.

It has sex (both consensual and not), war, incest, murder, language ( the biggest problem for most people for some WTF reason), crippling a little boy, forcing a 13 year old girl into marriage, spousal abuse, some homosexual characters ( I don't care, but some people...), murder, illegitimate offspring, and a perverted dwarf just to name a few. But it is well written, so I'm still reading.

Oh that reminds me.  The Way Of The Shadows has violence, language, rape, incest, prostitution, torture, more rape, and murder.

... but it has honor, and hope, and love, and amazing monsters, and magic, and humor,  and an ability completely move even the coldest of people (seriously, sad movies? Love? Death? Nope. I don't cry. I can't get into it that much emotionally, yet this book touched even me (no I didn't cry but I was really very sad))   
  Anyways, I feel the horrible things in this book only help to make the good things shine brighter.  And it's hilarious at the same time.  Win, win.   

(But don't read this book unless your 16+   I don't wanna be held responsible by annoyed parents)

You almost sound like you're trying a sales pitch. If so, it's working  :tongue: I'm a little interested now, even though I normally shy away from all the violent stuff...

Yay  :biggrin:   it's just that I love discussing books and games with people. People always read the same thing differently than you and I like hearing their opinions.   And I like it when people read. I love seeing a person read a book and think to myself, "Hey, I've read that."

Still reading "A Clash of Kings". It's 18+. (I say this to cover my @$$.)

Is it just me, or whenever someone gives you an age limit, you want to do it regardless? This applies for being to old and too young.

Maybe that's why I did it ;)     No, but seriously, if I get yelled at by any parents, I will be mad.
