A Game of Thrones Book Info
Long ago, in a time forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons out of balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime,trouble is brewing. The cold is returning, and in the frozen wastes to the north of Winterfell, sinister
and supernatural forces are massing beyond the kingdom’s
protective Wall. At the center of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a familyas harsh and unyielding as the land they were born to. Sweeping from a land of brutal cold to a distant summertime kingdom of epicurean plenty, here is a taleof lords and ladies, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and bastards, who cometogether in a time of grim omens.Here an enigmatic band of warriors bear swords of no human metal; a tribe of fierce wildlings carry men off into madness; a cruel young dragon prince bartershis sister to win back his throne; and a determined woman undertakes the mosttreacherous of journeys. Amid plots and counterplots, tragedy and betrayal,victory and terror, the fate of the Starks, their allies, and their enemies hangsperilously in the balance, as each endeavors to win that deadliest of conflicts:the game of thrones.
A Few Real Customer Reviews
Possibly the best of Fantasy in the last 20 yearsByA. Ryan "Merribelle"(Westminster, CA USA)
I spent quite a while staring at the blank screen in front of me to come up with afitting description of A Game of Thrones by George RR Martin. Should I compareit to the classic Lord of the Rings for its impressively epic scope? Would it be
best to focus on the honest, often painful humanity of the many characters - sorare in a fantasy novel - that personalizes each point of view? Perhaps I couldimpress other customers here with the sheer brilliance of a plot that weaves somany seemingly disparate stories together to form a believable alternateuniverse in which not only politics, intrigue, war, adventure and romance cancoexist plausibly, but magic as well. How could I do such a work justice?I might as well get this part out of the way first. Obligatory Synopsis: in afantasy continent that bears a familiarity to Middle Ages England, Winter iscoming. Winter in this world means a sort of mini ice age that will last for sevenyears before receding. In the always-frosty Northern area, the races of nonhuman beings are gathering to advance with the snows; there are hints thatthere is an ancient, evil power behind their forces. At the same time in theSouth, political infighting for the Throne has begun. Overseas, the daughter of the dispossessed former King is maneuvering forces of her own for a bid for thethrone. All this is told through the various stories of both "good guys" and not-so-good guys.For starters, AGOT can't be accurately compared to any other book or series inthe Fantasy genre (not without insulting it). The nearest thing of its type is thelaborious Wheel of Time series by Jordan - see what I mean? And yet this first inthe Song of Ice and Fire series is fathoms above that aimless, droning style.Martin has perfected what Jordan had arguably introduced; the multiplecharacters' points of view telling the vast saga on an intimate, up-close scale.Never did I feel that I was being strung along, but rather lead by incrementstoward an incredible revelation somewhere up ahead. Martin builds the suspensemasterfully in each book.But by far the most striking thing about the Song of Ice and Fire is the "rules"that the author breaks. Martin is not afraid to tell the tale from the point of viewof some very unlikable, even immoral characters. He is bold about revealingfacts from a character's past that challenge one's impressions and assumptionsabout their ethics. He does not lay all his cards on the table up front, but ratherunexpectedly reveals details that later change the whole picture and twist theplot admirably. And his most unusual move: this author even allows "favorites"to die occasionally (no names here...)! These risks pay off well to serve the storyas a whole, bring a sense of true humanity to the people of this world and drivethe reader on to the next series installment.It's just too bad that I can't magically transplant my sense of admiration forAGOT onto this page. Hopefully, you are intrigued enough to give it a try; itwould be a shame to miss what IMHO could be the best series of the decade.-Andrea, aka Merribelle.
5.0 out of 5 stars Don't read this review!By"scifibibliophile"(Baltimore, MD United States)
This review is from: A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 1) (MassMarket Paperback)Skip this review, stop reading right now. Scroll to the top of the page and pressthe order button now.Still here? Okay, I understand the need for a little explanation. I love fantasy. Iread Tolkien's Lord of the Rings soon after the American Version was published(don't start counting years on me) and I've read a greet deal of the genre since.I enjoy the epics (Sword of Truth, Wheel of Time) and the classics but I knowthat they seldom are the same. This one is an epic that will, without a doubt, bea classic.Okay, why? Reason 1: Characters. Characters so real that they make yourfriends and neighbors seem like pale shadows of reality. But these are not thetrite characters acting out predictable paths so often seen in fantasy. Martinknows that heroes are not always sterling exemplars and villains are not alwaystotally evil. In this series I guarantee you will find yourself, at one point,cheering on a member of the "evil" family in his struggles. When is the last timeyou did that?Reason 2: This is as close to reality as a fantasy can get. In real life heroessometimes die or commit murder in a rage. Villains sometimes win. Nothing isguaranteed and if a happy ending emerges at the end it will not be the happyending you imagined. One reviewer criticized the book because the plot didn't goin the direction he expected. I praise the book for the same reason.Reason 3: Writing. Johnny B Good played so well that it was like he "was ringinga bell." Martin writes that well. It all seems to flow out of him. Mostinterestingly, he chose to write the entire series in the first person - but thatperson changes each chapter. Normally I would find that disruptive. But in thehands of a master it adds a depth that has to be read to believe. Mostimportantly, it assures an identification with characters whose future is notassured. You will read chapters with bated breath as a hero describes, in firstperson, his or her life or death struggles. In the next chapter you will read theaccount of one of those who attends the hero's funeral.Okay, enough. Order the book already.
 Looking for that elusive book that grabs you from start to finish only to leaveyou begging for more? Are you tired of the same old fantasy cliches such aselves, dwarves, and evil wizards? A Game of Thrones is the kind of rich literaturethat any fan of character driven fiction should read. Martin's writing is very tight,fluid, and has a smart, professional quality. The setting sets itself apart fromother fantasy settings by being quite realistic when compared to other fantasy
