What's Wrong with the WorldWhat's Wrong with the World by G.K. Chesterton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I think he may have been incorrect about some differences between men and women. However, he seems spot on regarding modernity. He points out the problems with both Capitalism and Socialism. Soap and Socialism or Beer and Liberty!

A Game of Thrones  (A Song of Ice and Fire #1)A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I think that I mark it down for the moral ambiguity disguised as "realism". Basically the universe seems to be all about gathering power and avoiding pain. Is that realism? I may read more, but I also think I might look for something better.
