Ramsay Bolton and Reek - Game of Thrones Book Cover

So here's another of those book covers I've been making. And I doubt it's much of a surprise that it's Game of Thrones this week considering the TV shows that I've done so far. It's not exactly a controversial thing to champion as pretty much everyone likes it. It's a damn good show, but you knew that already.

I am a fan of Ramsay Bolton (formerly Snow) though. I'm not saying I like him, because that would make me an absolute psychopath. But he's very entertaining. Not in the Joffrey, "I just want to make him bite the curb" kind of way, but in a, "Holy Hell this guy is a complete loony, I can't wait to see what he's going to do next!" kind of way. And it's becoming more apparent as time goes on that he's one of the only people in Westeros who gets anything done. He's just so damn capable! 

I can barely think of a single other person who has achieved anything they originally set out to do (Jon Snow was pretty good at it too, but the less said about that the better...) On the other hand I'm struggling to think of a single time Ramsay didn't meet his stated object efficiently and under budget.

And, even if he likes sadistic flaying and castration a bit too much for my taste, you've gotta respect that.
