Cayla, October 27, 2014 (view all comments by Cayla)
When I started to watch the HBO series "Game of Thrones," a friend of mine recommended I read the books first, and that was one of my better book-related decisions. A Game of Thrones is one of the most detailed and enthralling novels I've read. Vivid imagery meets incredibly three-dimensional character development and an intensely intricate plot with just the right amount of fantasy. The shifting-perspective style allows for an all-encompassing perspective of Martin's world and characters, giving you one chapter from a given character and the next from his enemy. It takes patience to read, but the payoff is absolutely worth it. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys fantasy, politics, or adventure.

This is an amazing book with incredibly deep characters and story. Once you're introduced to the world of Westeros, its great houses and the power struggles between them you will be hooked.

Amazing book! There's really something in it for everyone. I watched the first season first and then picked up the book. If you loved the show it's definitely worth reading the book for all the details.

George R. R. Martin writes from different people's perspectives throughout the whole book which makes the story really interesting. I was captivated the whole time. The writing is wonderful, dialogue great and creativity spot on. There is a little bit of everything, adventure, mystery, romance, family drama, battles and more.
