Published in celebration of the twentieth anniversary of George R. R. Martin's landmark series, this lavishly illustrated special edition of A Game of Thrones-with gorgeous full-page illustrations in every chapter-revitalizes the fantasy masterpiece that became a cultural phenomenon. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. The cold is returning, and in the frozen wastes to the North of Winterfell, sinister and supernatural forces are massing beyond the kingdom's protective Wall. At the centre of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a family as harsh and unyielding as the land they were born to. Sweeping from a region of brutal cold to a distant summertime kingdom of epicurean plenty, here is a tale of lords and ladies, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and bastards, who come together in a time of grim omens. Amid plots and counterplots, tragedy and betrayal, victory and terror, the fate of the Starks, their allies, and their enemies hangs perilously in the balance, as each endeavours to win that deadliest of conflicts: the game of thrones.

when you buy a hardback book? something about 9x6? surprise! this "hardback" is 4.5 x 6. a paperback size with hardcovers. it seems a bit dishonest to sell this as a hardback without disclosing it's paperback size.

Meh....maybe Clash of Kings is better
I'm always one who enjoys the books more than their television/movie counterparts; but this is one of those rare occasions where I'd rather just watch the show. I'm sure the second book is better since this is just the introductory book, but I found myself getting bored with the text, it's not as engrossing as I thought it would be.

A staple of a good fantasy library
I have been a sci fi and fantasy reader for years, but somehow this series escaped my attention until a couple of years ago. It should practically be required reading for aspiring fantasy authors; THIS is how you build a world and its politics believably. THIS is how you develop characters. THIS is how you introduce supernatural events without your readers rolling their eyes. Martin has incredible attention to detail. The experience of delving into his books is rich and utterly engrossing. I had read other reviews that mentioned how political this series is, and that gave me pause, but Martin manages to keep the book from ever being bogged down because of it; rather, the political aspects lend the story its hint of mystery and suspense. The game of thrones is a bloody one. Start this series if you have a few months to commit, because once you get involved in this world, you won't be able to NOT care about the characters and their struggles. Highly recommended.
