(1 review) Write a Review
HBO's hit series A GAME OF THRONES is based on George R R Martin's internationally bestselling series A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE, the greatest fantasy epic of the modern age. A GAME OF THRONES is the first volume in the series. 'So vivid that you'll be hooked within a few pages' The Times Summers span decades. Winter can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne has begun. As Warden of the north, Lord Eddard Stark counts it a curse when King Robert bestows on him the office of the Hand. His honour weighs him down at court where a true man does what he will, not what he must ...and a dead enemy is a thing of beauty. The old gods have no power in the south, Stark's family is split and there is treachery at court. Worse, the vengeance-mad heir of the deposed Dragon King has grown to maturity in exile in the Free Cities. He claims the Iron Throne.

    I'm in love with A Game of Thrones

    Posted by Bailey on 18th Apr 2017

    Unfortunately I haven't known the world of Ice & fire for years like some of the dedicated fans for the last decade. But that is no excuse to pick up and read this series!

    George R. R. Martin has created a living world within these pages, filled with so much history and all the elements you come to expect from a medieval fantasy. Knights, Kings, Dwarfs, war and of course, dragons!
    Even though this book sounds like a very stereotypical medieval book, its not afraid to push our expectations.

    George has created a full roster of characters, with different motivations, ideologies and different class. And George divides each chapter to a different character perspective. Giving you an idea how characters think and also gives a great chance to see every corner of the world and how events in the book ripple and effect other character as well as the world they occupy. I'll be honest when I say I was worried on how I could tolerate being dragged into different stories across a large world and feel connected to the characters. But the book surprised me.

    Be aware, If you are a reader who prefers a fairy tail fantasy and likes the old classic Arthur stories, then this will not be for you. You will need a strong stomach to read this book. This world is dark and isn't afraid to show it. From George going into a lot of detail on the gore and adult activities and explores very old themes of love. There were moments where I was questioning what I was reading. But its important to really sink into the mindset on that time period and how it was all about violence. Its fair to say that is a very adult book.

    Overall I love this book, kept me engaged and raveled in its pages, right to the very end. Dynamic group of characters, very detailed and creative world in a dark medieval fantasy. And I am looking forward to whats in store in the next few books.

    The only question I have after finishing the book is, when can I start reading the next book!?!?
