    George R. R. Martin's New York Times best-selling epic fantasy book series, A Song of Ice and Fire, and the HBO television show adapted from it, have earned critical acclaim and inspired fanatic devotion. This book delves into the many philosophical questions that arise in this complex, character-driven series, including: Is it right for a "good" king to usurp the throne of a "bad" one and murder his family? How far should you go to protect your family and its secrets? In a fantasy universe with medieval mores and ethics, can female characters reflect modern feminist ideals?

    Tommy says: "Open your eyes and read this please"
    "A fun exploration of philosophy"

    What did you love best about Game of Thrones and Philosophy?

    I love applying philosophy to pop culture. It really helps me understand the philosophical concepts-- or makes be believe that I understand them better.

    I read a lot of science usually. The philosophy is a mental palate cleanser.

    World-renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to a Swiss research facility to analyze a cryptic symbol seared into the chest of a murdered physicist. What he discovers is unimaginable: a deadly vendetta against the Catholic Church by a centuries-old underground organization, the Illuminati. Desperate to save the Vatican from a powerful time bomb, Langdon joins forces in Rome with the beautiful and mysterious scientist Vittoria Vetra.

    If you could sum up Angels and Demons in three words, what would they be?

    Art History Fiction


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The science v religion stuff was so heavy handed it was silly at times.


    What about Richard Poe’s performance did you like?

    He has a very commanding tone.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    nope


    Any additional comments?

    I read this in preparation of a trip to Rome and the Vatican. If you treat it as a travel guide, it's great. As a story... it's ok.
