Because it is... [In reply to] Can't Post


In Reply To
I'm confused. Grown up = not made for children. Got that.
But then how can GoT be "more grown-up" than LotR? That's not exactly a story I would read (most) children at bedtime either. Or anyway it's certainly not a story that speaks more to children than it speaks to adults. Which, of course, were an entirely different matter if we talked about the Hobbit. But we don't.


Because LotR isn't scary at all? Sorry, I read it when I was 11, and I don't recall it ever scaring me whatsoever, or having anything in it that wasn't appropriate for children. It's about as clean as can be. Not so with GoT. That's really all there is to it.
