re: Why do you dislike Preston Jacobs on Youtube - thatguy1892
I don't dislike him at all. I find him very informative of Martin's works. People get all bent out of shape about his videos because they think he comes off as pretentious. But what it really is, he has studied the bulk of Martin's works, and because of that he tries his to make well informed predic...

re: Can anyone recommend a good book about the early Christian Church? - thatguy1892
[quote] Interesting. Is that book heavily slanted? I would love to read a more historical account of the religion, and not one with a bunch of magic in it.[/quote] No it's not slanted at all. It covers Israel during that time period and how it became controlled by the romans. It talks about wher...

re: Question for Game of Thrones book readers (Spoilers) - thatguy1892
