I know it sounds a little contradictory at first--we say we discuss mature subjects but also recommend the book to teens... it'll make sense, or maybe not. We tend to ramble.

We talk about this poem from A Game of Thrones which we don't read aloud during the podcast because we'll both tear up and cry, so here it is:
Night gathers, and now my watch begins.
It shall not end until my death...
I shall live and die at my post.
I am the sword in the darkness.
I am the watcher on the walls.
I am the fire that burns against the cold,
the light that brings the dawn,
the horn that wakes the sleepers,
The shield that guards the realms of men.
I pledge my life and honor to the Night's Watch, for this night and all the nights to come.
~ "The Vows of the Night Watch", George R. R. Martin
