A Review for Game of Thrones (A Song of Fire and Ice book 1) by George R. R. Martin
Game of Thrones is a fantastic guided tour through the lives of a vast group of characters. The setting is of a medieval nature, with maps and geographical detail that reminds one of J. R. R.Tolkien or R. A. Salvatore. The plot is deep and the character development stirring, this is only book one of 5(at present time), and contains a story that will not truly be realized until the series has been completed. For those daunted by large books, this one is around 800 pages long. On the flip side of that, those 800 pages fly by, especially for those that enjoy the authors listed above. A warning for those concerned about adult content, this book contains scenes that are sexual in nature, scenes of nudity, and at times detailed violence. Overall, I would recommend this book, with a side note of caution for anyone 14 years old or younger. Finally, if this review felt even more vague than usual, that is because I absolutely do not want to spoil this story for anyone that has not read it yet.
