Stop me if you have heard this one before, A dwarf, a knight and a king walk into a bar...The world of Westeros is a world of adult desires and blood curdling screams as people are run through with blades and fury - You never know who will get there throat slit or who may just get a simple push out of a window - The drama that flows through this book will keep your hands gripped to it like a racers hands to the wheel, you will NOT want to let go!

Complete character development: Check. Courtly intrigue: Check. Massively epic storyline: check. Still manages to be a page turner: check. If Lord of the Rings had this pacing it would be the most widely read book ever. Don't let the "Fantasy" tag fool you; this series has more realism to it than most romantic comedies and historical re-tellings. The magic in this series enhances but does not distract nor is it even vital to the story, but it makes it better.
Highly recommended for anyone who as ever picked up a sword... or even thought about it once and felt foolish for doing so. Martin will not disappoint.

I read this after seeing the television series, and even though I knew the general outline of what was going to happen, I was absolutely riveted. Martin creates fabulous characters in whom the reader becomes completely invested.

I had never been a reader of fantasy novels nor was I familiar with George R. R. Martin, but when I began hearing the buzz about a new show on HBO and the novel it was based on my curiosity was aroused. And boy am I glad that I gave in to that curiosity. A Game of Thrones drew me into a world that was fantasy but felt as though it could have based in history. Each of the characters were memorable and fascinating with their own complex storylines allowing them to become personal to the reader. It was truly one of the best books that I read this past year.

I wasn't looking forward to this book, as it was a bookclub pick. I ended up enjoying it a lot. I like books with solid characters and good dialog--this had both. The story was great, and had a few surprises. Highly recommend.
