Product Description

Review

Praise for George R. R. Martin and A Song of Ice and Fire
 
“The only fantasy series I’d put on a level with J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings . . . It’s a fantasy series for hip, smart people, even those who don’t read fantasy.”—Chicago Tribune
 
“Martin amply fulfills the first volume’s promise and continues what seems destined to be one of the best fantasy series ever written.”—The Denver Post, on A Clash of Kings
 
“Martin has produced—is producing, since the series isn’t over—the great fantasy epic of our era. It’s an epic for a more profane, more jaded, more ambivalent age than the one Tolkien lived in.”—Lev Grossman, Time
 
“Addictive . . . George R. R. Martin has created the unlikely genre of the realpolitik fantasy novel.”—Rolling Stone, on A Feast for Crows
 
“Epic fantasy as it should be written: passionate, compelling, convincingly detailed and thoroughly imagined.”—The Washington Post, on A Dance with Dragons
 
“I always expect the best from George R. R. Martin, and he always delivers.”—Robert Jordan

A good read. I decided to read the series before watching it on HBO, and so far its been enjoyable and for the most part, a page turner where I need to see what happens next. Considering that each book is typically a thousand pages, it's an important element in fictional books I read...for the writer to grab my interests and feed me as much creativity as they can so I don't want to put the book down. George R.R. Martin has accomplished that with this series.

While the books and story are amazing, the quality of this book set and print is... Bad. The paper is really cheap, and the pages stain your fingers like a newspaper. The three stars are for the story, the missing two, for the quality of the print. But if you are on a budget and only want to read the books, its still a good option. But those wont last being reread multiple time.

I bought these books in hard copy (from Chapters) and kobo as well (but not on Amazon) well before they became a tv series, and I have to state that they are one of the best series I've EVER read.. and I read a lot of books. There is a lot of detail, so you feel like you are really in their world, but it's not so much that you feel overwhelmed and want to skip pages. I found that I got super invested in the story, and had favourite characters (go Arya, or whatever name you're going by today), and would get really sad (or MAD) when characters were killed (like threw the book across the room once). I think that reading this series is way better than the show, and is something that young adults to middle adults can really enjoy. The story keeps you on the edge of your seat while jumping from one location to another (similar to a soap opera). You never have any idea what is coming, and there are so many twists to the story line - it's just fantastic.

This was NOT something I received free to review, just something I own and adore in my own library collection.

Quick Review (TL;DR)
These books are great. Expansive well described settings and extremely complex and detailed characters. You'll find yourself loving character you hated in a previous books and feeling compassion for psychopathic torturers.
Nothing happens the way you think it'll happen and no one you want to live lives. Everyone dies except for the ones you expect to.
I would highly recommend reading this series as long as you don't mind waiting 1-2 decades as the following books are released.

Fuller Review:

--If you want to support a story you enjoy and get the entire series at the same time you should buy this. --

All my life I've been waiting for something like this story. Every time I watched a movie where the good guy had some kind of distress or trouble and the bad guy seemed ahead, I still always knew who would win. As I am sure you all did. (granted this applies more to shows/movies than to books)

Every time a fairy tale ending occurred with the action hero walking into the sunset with his girl, I got tired. Every. Single. Time.

Good guy wins, bad guy loses/gets away and everyone is happily ever after. Sure there are some exceptions, but not really. Either everyone dies at the end or some other trope occurs. But the bad guy never wins over. Not at the end. Like some horribly boring, predictable formula.

This is the show I've been waiting for. Everything you think will happen doesn't happen. Or it does and then does a complete 180. No predictability at all. I absolutely love it.
You hate the character who paralyzes kids and then you grow to like them and empathize with their flaws as they grow into their character.

About to start A Feast For Crows (4). Number one and three were great, but number two was slow. Started reading them because I really liked the show and I wanted to know more about the Seven Kingdoms.

I only have read half of the first book and I already love the story. I discover Game of Thrones by the HBO serie but, I am a book-worm so, the book is always better than the movie/serie. I am french and I usually read in french. But from the other reviews, I decide to read those in english. That was a really wise choice. The book is well write, rich in methaphors and comparison. Really, really love this serie of books so far. I highly recommand it!
