Review-A-Day

"So when people started recommending the Song of Ice and Fire books, I nodded, made vague statements like, 'I should look for those,' and promptly didn't. I loved Martin's early short story Sandkings (it was years before I could blindly reach around a corner and flick on a light switch), but a fantasy series? No thanks. Then my sister bought A Game of Thrones and forced it upon me. I figured I would read enough of it so that I could tell her, 'This is why I don't like fantasy.' So I read. And read. And waited for it to become fantasy. Instead, it just kept being this amazingly complex story of politics and intrigue that just happens to be set in a medieval-type realm." Doug Brown, Powells.com (Read the entire Powells.com review)

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series has become, in many ways, the gold standard for modern epic fantasy. Martin — dubbed the "American Tolkien" by Time magazine — has created a world that is as rich and vital as any piece of historical fiction, set in an age of knights and chivalry and filled with a plethora of fascinating, multidimensional characters that you love, hate to love, or love to hate as they struggle for control of a divided kingdom. It is this very vitality that has led it to be adapted as the HBO miniseries "Game of Thrones".

Review:

"The major fantasy of the decade....compulsively readable." The Denver Post

"We have been invited to a grand feast and pageant: George R.R. Martin has unveiled for us an intensely realized, romantic but realistic world." Chicago Sun-Times

Review:

"Such a splendid tale and such a fantasticorical! I read my eyes out and couldn't stop 'til I finished and it was dawn." Anne McCaffrey

About the Author

George R.R. Martin sold his first story in 1971 and has been writing professionally since then. He spent ten years in Hollywood as a writer-producer, working on The Twilight Zone, Beauty and the Beast, and various feature films and television pilots that were never made. In the mid ‘90s he returned to prose, his first love, and began work on his epic fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire. He has been in the Seven Kingdoms ever since. Whenever he’s allowed to leave, he returns to Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he lives with the lovely Parris, and four cats, who think they run the place.

The first book of the series sucks you in at the end, ensuring your undivided attention and the goal of getting thru the series to find out the conclusion. Ah, the irony! and pleasure!

I could not put this book down. Every chance i got, breaks at work, lunch, dinner, etc... I became non existant to my family while I devoured the pages and story. I love the characters and would have loved to find out about the youngest Stark? What became of the mother who had come back to life? I just want more. Will definitely be looking up other works from this author for my next book.
