Motivation
Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory.
-J. R. R. Tolkien

My trip through the enigmatical


world of books began when I was
almost six. I started reading literature
for children, short fairytales and fantasy stories.
I have always had a hidden pleasure in
discovering the boundaries of a world which was so far
from reality
Westeros
The story takes place primarily on a continent called Westeros. It is
roughly equivalent in area to South America, although there is a
large amount of unmapped land to the far north with extremely cold
temperatures. Westeros is at the mercy of erratic seasons that may
last for many years, but whose duration is unpredictable. At the
beginning of A Song of Ice and Fire the continent has enjoyed a
decade-long summer, and many fear that an equally long and harsh
winter will follow. Fans have developed lengthy scientific theories
for the seasons, such as a multiple-star system or a planet with
special axial tilt, but Martin insists there is a supernatural fantasy
explanation instead of a scientific one. Martin rather enjoyed the
symbolism of the seasons, with summer as a time of growth and
plenty and joy, and winter as a dark time where there is a struggle
for survival.

Kingdoms for nearly 300 years. Its seat is in King's
Landing, the royal capital of Westeros, and the Prince of

the Seven Kingdoms and the principal house

the House's unofficial one: A Lannister always
pays his debts.
