Book Review: Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire #1)

13496Title: Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire #1)

Author: George R.R. Martin

Genre: Fantasy, Epic Fantasy

The first volume of A Song of Ice and Fire, the greatest fantasy epic of the modern age. GAME OF THRONES is now a major TV series from HBO, starring Sean Bean.

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 was given this book many years ago, and instantly Martin became one of my favorite authors. I tend to like more complex books and the longer the book the better. Storytelling, just blew me a way and I read all of his books availabe non stop. I have not read his last book mostly due to the fact that it took so long for him to put out his last book and the last book was only half of the story. I will wait for him to finish the series, and then read the last one. I highly recommend for anyone that it is okay with a very long book.
