MFW I didn't read past the first book because the writing style was atrocious, but I watch the show because the cinematography, acting, and conveyance of emotion is ten times better than in the novels, which were almost like a long, mundane list of details.

Get the **** out.
User avatar #96 to #92 - dashgamer (05/15/2013) [-]
But it is! Like many poorly written books (I thoroughly enjoyed the story, but not the way in which it was conveyed, don't get me wrong), it had very little variation in sentence structure or diction, and it seemed not like a fantastical, enthralling tale but a dull accounting of events.

You have lost all credibility in critiquing someone's writing.

I repeat, get the **** out.

Simply because something is widely praised doesn't mean that my opinion can't deviate from that of the majority's!
User avatar #104 to #101 - roflsaucer (05/15/2013) [-]
I didn't say you couldn't have a different opinion.

It's just that your opinion is ******* wrong and you are trying too hard to be "that guy", who somehow thinks he stands at a level where he has the ability to judge something as complex as writing style.
User avatar #106 to #104 - dashgamer (05/15/2013) [-]
Language is my profession, and I can use it better than most. The story and the characters are intertwined in a convoluted, pleasantly complex way, but the writing style is bland and repetitive. It's simple sentence after simple sentence, with a compound sentence thrown in every once in a while for good measure. It's a tale told articulately and thoroughly, but it's also done simplistically, so much so that descriptions and dialogue that could be conveyed with prosody becomes lackluster and indistinguishable from the myriad other details that envelop them.
My opinion isn't wrong, nor is it right. It's nothing more than my personal distaste for this aspect of the novels. I'm not trying to be any guy other than myself. There are a million other views that I'm sure you are not capable of reconciling with your own. Get over it.
User avatar #115 to #106 - roflsaucer (05/15/2013) [-]
I don't know how you seem to think that he is inarticulate and simplistic, GRRM is articulate enough that you can picture the entire scenery of the lands of Winterfell, Bravos, Slavers Bay, King's Landing, and so many others. He writes in a way that gives you insight into the characters as they go about in a seemingly simplistic way, which seems to where you managed to miss something. Just because something is "simple", does not make it "bad". While showing you everything and nothing at the same time, GRRM manages to show you the characters, without showing them at all. The characters whose view you see the story from is shown a bit more in-depth, however no character is lacking in a distinct personality, ranging from cold-hearted and calculative, to dumb as a post.
Not to mention, as you said below, you have not even read past the first book, leaving you terribly unqualified to judge a writing style you are so unfamiliar with. A complicated writing structure is not what it means to have a good writing style. A good writing style is one the can clearly and fluidly be absorbed by the reader without deterring them from reading. And GRRM accomplishes this splendidly - transition from character to character, scene to scene, is done well enough so it's not hitting a brick wall and making you stop, but rather redirecting you down a different route.

If you think all writing is is big words and complicated sentences, you are gravely, GRAVELY mistaken.

"The tale was told articulately and thoroughly"
The first book was what, a thousand pages long? I quickly became acquainted with both his style of describing events and personification of character, and I'm qualified to judge on what I have read and qualified to judge because I have knowledge enough to pass keen judgement.
I don't think good writing is derived from use of arcane words and complicated sentence structure, but a wide variation in expression often conveys ideas better than, what seems to me to be in these novels, a long, long list of invariably simple statements. It's the difference between "Jack and Jill run up the hill" and "Jack merrily cavorted with Jill, his eyes never wavering from the beauty of her visage, along the dusty path to that led to the idyllic place that he hoped would spark their romance" or some ******** like that. And yet, GoT seems to be little more than "Jack ran up the hill. Jack fell off the tower. Jack has no legs. Jack is a wog."

Let me just put this out there first: I ******* LOVE A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE.
Now, that being said, I do understand where you are coming from. He uses the same expressions a lot for example "as useless as nipples on a breastplate" and "for have a groat I would X" I still like the books, but I do see where you are coming from.

Now, where am I coming from? roflsaucer mentioned me.
User avatar #124 to #121 - roflsaucer (05/15/2013) [-]
Yes, the first book is about that long. But you even said, you did not even get through that.
The second, third, fourth, and fifth book are also about this length. So, to ballpark it, you have read less than 20% of all there is to it, less than 10% if you didn't get halfway through the first. Not to mention with your example sentence, you watered down the original meaning of the first sentence so much by throwing in details that have nothing to do with the original idea of him running up the hill, that the original meaning does not even exist anymore. It's not Jack and Jill going up a hill anymore, it's Jack trying to seduce Jill by going up a hill, with extra adjectives thrown in here and there. This does not, by any means, make it better.
A couple example sentences from the first book:
"The first time he had been sent beyond, all the stories came rushing back and his bowels turned to water." Simple detail? Yes. Surrounded by simpler details? Sure. However, I know exactly what is happening, without being bothered by meaningless details.
And another:
"All day, Will felt as though something were watching him, something cold and implacable that loved him not."
Another simple sentence? Yes, however it is clearly conveyed that there is something eerie lurking about, something that poses a threat to Will that is now immediately in the mind of the reader. Adding more details to this sentence in unnecessary fluff that adds nothing to the writing.

I said I did get through the first, but that it's all I've gotten through.
The original idea was scrapped in favor for an actual story. You're telling me that you would prefer "Jack goes up a hill" to something that describes Jack's actions and reasoning for those actions more explicitly? My criticism doesn't stem from a desire for superfluous details! I have a problem with the seminal way everything in that novel is conveyed.
I'm done with this conversation. I care as little for your opinion as you do for mine. And my comment was meant as an accolade for the television show, not slander of the novels.

Maybe re-read it then because it is nothing like your example. And could you be any more pretentious?

User avatar #93 to #91 - dashgamer (05/15/2013) [-]
I wasn't trying to sound smart, and I don't need to impress any of you. I was just stating my opinion of the novel series compared to the show. I admit, since I didn't get past the first novel, it's not exactly an educated opinion, but I must reiterate that the writing style was just lacking in the compassion and unique expression that makes novels appealing to me.

What the CRAP makes you think it's Tywin? He is Joffrey's bitch. He'd never do anything to hurt Joffrey, because Tywin is also a ******* cunt.

Tywins character would murder Joffrey in a heartbeat given the reason to because Joffrey is trying his best to **** up all his hard work.
User avatar #90 to #72 - beatmasterz (05/15/2013) [-]
Are you an idiot? Killing your own grandson is kinslaying, which is taboo. It's also not good for the family name. Joffrey isn't even trying to screw Tywin over. He doesn't care what his grandfather does, as long as it works.
