I know, that TIMES review was terrible, and I can't believe how it was approved for posting!
If ''geek'' is what I should be called, because I love fantasy and epics and I laugh at ''Sex and the City'' for showing women as consumerism freaks with no personality whatsoever, then geek I am, and a very proud one! I think fantasy is the best type of art, because it is about imagination and greatness and artistic liberty, and I, too, can't believe there are still people out there who hate fantasy just because ''the author can decide winter lasts ten years'' and ''I'm too much of a reality freak to accept that without a scientific explanation''. And it's not that I don't love/adore other types of shows and books. I watch dramas, silly girly dramas, comedies, historical shows, epics, and I watch fantasy. And I appreciate quality where I see it. When I was 9 I read Harry Potter. It did not get me into reading because I was already a bookworm, but it did get me into fantasy and magic and dragons. Then along came Lord of the Rings, which was incomparable to HP, and I spent my whole teenage years reading and re-reading Tolkien. Now I'm 18, and I for about 2 years I had been searching for a new epic, great series to immerse myself into, and ASOIAF came along. I live in Greece where nobody knows about it, so I was lucky to learn about it through livejournal. And I think it's the best series I've ever read. I can only laugh at those people who hate fantasy just because they can't get their imaginations to work. Bad for them, good for us!
