Quarter 3 Reading

A Clash of Kings

There is only one evil in this world and that is yourself. George R.R. Martin has depicted this message throughout a wide range of different characters in the series. I'd say that the one that stands out the most with this message is Jon Snow. Jon Snow has grown up with people hating him for being the bastard child of Robert Stark, the head of the Stark family. From being discriminated by his false mother to getting banished to the great wall in the North. But was there a true purpose to all this? Since Jon has taken the oath to be a man of the nights watch he has came across many problems that only he himself can deal with. After hearing about his family being caged in at the red keep, Jon had a choice, to stay with his brothers or save his family, but he knows if he left then he would break his oath with the wall. Jon will have many more future experiences where he has to battle with himself to do the right thing.

Arya: I wish you were coming with us.

Jon: Different roads sometimes lead to the same castle.

“Kill the boy, Jon Snow. Winter is almost upon us. Kill the boy and let the man be born.”

“This is not Winterfell', he told him as he cut his meat with fork and dagger. 'On the Wall, a man gets only what he earns. You're no ranger, Jon, only a green boy with the smell of summer still on you.”
