So it seems that HBO has made the right decision to take on Game of Thrones. In spite of the criticism that the show has received, it looks like a lot of people are getting into the series. Even those who have not read the book are trying out the TV series and are now looking into the book series as well.
Remember that NYT review that got me all riled up some weeks ago? If there is one thing that I agree with, it is the fact that there is a host of characters in the story. And yes, you do have to pay attention to keep track of them all. Heck, it has been years since I first read the first installment in the series, and I probably remember only half of the characters. That’s part of the allure of this series, though. In any case, there are always guides which can help one remember all the details.
Speaking of guides, I ran across a set of infographics dedicated to nothing else but – you guessed it – Game of Thrones! Created by Magda, these infographics are rather detailed and are great resources both for newbies to the story and those who simply want to make sure they have their “facts” right. This infographic details the characters and their relationship to one another. And if you’re worried about spoilers, rest easy – Magda made sure this one is spoiler-free.
There’s no going around it – the plot is as thick as molasses, so even an infographic of the characters is bound to take some time to understand. Still, it’s handy to have when you want to get things straight!
This other infographic is perfect to help you get the locations right. I like how the areas are labeled according to the episodes – definitely more helpful!
