Martin Thoughts: I am not a fan of the fantasy genre when reading. I love the movies and TV shows, but the books just don’t resonate with me. I tried to read and listen to Lord of the Rings about five times and never made it past 150 pages. When the TV show came out, my buddy Ray gave me A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin to read.

With those ideologies and perceptions comes the sense of justice and punishment no matter how they might not fit the crime. However, for me, the major point of the book was how we decide what our role in society will be. The book is a scathing commentary on the political system at large. How boobs elected into office are being handled behind the scenes, wielding unimaginable power (nuclear warheads and Superman in this case) and how the idiotic talking heads on TV shape public…
