The Simple Dollar Weekly Roundup: Rains of Castamere Edition

Over the last few days, I’ve watched as several of my friends have been completely shocked by the giant twist on the Game of Thrones television series.

Since I actually read the “Red Wedding” scene several years ago, it was very entertaining to see all of the surprise from people. I’m really glad that they saved and built up the surprise on the television series as well as the author did in the books.

A well-written work that pays off with a shocking yet sensible surprise is very enjoyable, no matter whether it’s a film or a television series or (my preference) a book.
