I couldn't disagree more. GoT the television series is pretty heavy on the tits and wine, but a whole lot of that is fan service. If you've both read the books and watched the show, you know a whole lot of what's in them ended up compressed or outright left on the cutting room floor -- but very little of that omitted material is sex. Then they went and added more. The books are much more balanced, probably in large part because there's only so much sex can do to advance the plot (and in the case of ASOIAF, it actually has major plot significance). In spite of the blatant fan service, it's actually really, really good television. It's just that the books are even better.Steinherz wrote:GoT has sex like every other chapter.
It's porn with plot.
KS is plot with porn (like most VNs)
Take my opinion as you wish. I admit to thoroughly lifting the format for my own book (icons for each character, a new POV every chapter, multiple in-flight plotlines at any given moment, and jumping into a scene already in progress more often than not are some obvious ones, but I also appropriated the habit of showing something baffling and waiting two hundred pages to explain it) so obviously I'm partial to the way they're written. This includes long stretches without sex, in a book that's supposed to be somewhat romance-oriented, because I don't like dropping H-scenes that don't make sense.
Funny, the exact opposite is true for me. I'm the one that got her into it, and several of my friends have done similar things.KeiichiO wrote:Also, I personally couldn't possibly get off to GoT, especially since my mother initially got me into it...
