In a new episode of Game of Owns, the hosts begin their much anticipated chapter-by-chapter, tackling the first six chapters of A Game of Thrones!

This marks the first week in which your one and only GOO cast begins to look over the ASOIAF series chapter-by-chapter, beginning with the prologue and continuing through to the fifth chapter.

    Damn guys… You did it. I read/listened to the whole series just before the second season started and even though I loved it, I couldn’t help but feel kind of relieved when I finally got to the last chapter of ‘A Dance with Dragons’.

    When I heard you guys (and girl) discussing a chapter by chapter for the books in the last episode, I immediately loved the idea but wasn’t planning to participate in the (re) reading. Listening to this episode though and you guys’ analysis of the first five chapters made me realize just how much awesome I might have missed during my first read.

    So now, despite the fact that it wasn’t that long ago that I picked up the first book in the series, I’ll again begin reading AGoT just so I can really appreciate and experience this story along with you guys.

    Oh and Micah, I love that you couldn’t find any Theon Owns for Eric because they all ‘Reek’. lol
