    •  It's not the gore so much as the damage (4+ / 0-)

      There are scenes in the books - and readers, you know one of them I'm thinking of - where I could barely stand to read - if there were a way to read while hiding my eyes, as I  would do in a scary movie, I would have done it.  George is not kind to his characters - and the damage is very disturbing to contemplate.  Which I guess means pretty good writing.

      •  I was hooked on them (0+ / 0-)

        long ago, when he actually started the series...:)  I reread them each time a new one came out--and then I stopped because I swear, I've read that one scene as many times as I can bear in one lifetime.  If he ever finishes, maybe I'll read them one last time--but I don't know if I'm strong enough.

        I think "if there were a way to read while hiding my eyes" describes that scene perfectly.
