Martin's Seven Kingdoms resemble England during the Wars of the Roses, with the Stark and Lannister families standing in for the Yorks and Lancasters. The story of these two families and their struggle to control the Iron Throne dominates the foreground; in the background is a huge, ancient wall marking the northern border, beyond which barbarians, ice vampires, and direwolves menace the south as years-long winter advances. Abroad, a dragon princess lives among horse nomads and dreams of fiery reconquest.
There is much bloodshed, cruelty, and death, but A Game of Thrones is nevertheless compelling; it garnered a Nebula nomination and won the 1996 Locus Award for Best Fantasy Novel. So, on to A Clash of Kings! --Nona Vero --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.
Tried to read this after the first episode on tv. After 5 seasons have picked it up again and am LOVING it. Will definitely be purchasing the rest of the series.Published 26 days ago by PooHoo's Mom
Big fan of GoT. Read the books many times. The voices are sometimes a little strange (trying to come up with voices for so many characters would be difficult). Read morePublished 1 month ago by Rick H
Great read, well developed characters and plots. I've already been enjoying the tv series, so I thought I'd give the books ago. I'd recommend this to any fantasy book lover.Published 2 months ago by Mrs. E. Clark-Emmons
The first book in the Game of Thrones series is just as good, if not better than the show! I'd say both are equal. Read morePublished 3 months ago by koolz03

Difficult to get into this world, but completely enthralling once you do. The chapter by character is difficult at times but also keeps you connected with all of the story lines.Published 4 months ago by mark
