Meh....maybe Clash of Kings is better

by Emily D on Jun 6, 2013

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

by Ellyb on Aug 7, 2011

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.

Excellent Book...BUT

by jimbuffalo on Feb 10, 2011

This book is excellent, characters that you care about in situations that feel real...But...it's the first book of a series that seems to be in limbo. We have been waiting for years for the next book and while it has been promised many times it still hasn't been forthcoming.. So while I really loved the book and the ones that followed I have given up on the series and can't recommend it.

Scott

"A Game of Thrones": is the HBO series better than George R. R. Martin's book?

Last night, I finished this sprawling, epic book. Wow. I really enjoyed it (when I wasn't lost in its complex history, culture, and character naming!). Has anyone else out there read this book and some or all of the rest of its "Song of Ice and Fire" series? If so, is the HBO series worth trying ... Read more
