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.”

This bundle includes the following novels:
A GAME OF THRONES
A CLASH OF KINGS
A STORM OF SWORDS
A FEAST FOR CROWS

Good thing I buckled up before starting on book one of this series, "A Game of Thrones" - I can already tell it's gonna be a hell of a ride. One of the grimmest fantasies I've read, and quite twisted - but at this point, I'm trusting in the author that by the time book seven rolls around, all will be well. So far, I'm not really getting the Tolkien comparisons, as there isn't much in the way of magic - but certainly the epic backstories of the family dynasties involved are impressive. It's going to take me a while to get through this series, but now that I'm finished the first book I'm going to check out the HBO adaptation - I have a feeling that the delicious Sean Bean will be fantastic as Lord Eddard Stark...read more

Book 1: The writing is good, and occasionally the characters and events are captivating. However, the whole thing feels like a mob-family story done medieval style, like the Sopranos crossed with King Arthur. There is not a lot of fantastical elements, humor, or fun; instead there is a lot of violence and many heads on spikes. I'm sure it makes for good TV; however, this does not rise to the level of Tolkien, whatever other book reviewers may say. After a break I'll try book 2 and revisit this review.read more

A awesome series about different noble families fighting for control of the iron throne. Martin writes the chapters in the different view points of different characters that keeps you wanting more from each character.I had to go ahead and place the whole series together because it is one long story that does not end. What I really like about this series is that you can't put it down. I become attached to each character and when each chapter ends you want to go to the next one to get back to the one before, but then you become attached to that one you just read.read more

I LOVE this series. The world is immense, the characters are multi-faceted and unpredictable, and the story is one of the most epic and brilliantly devises I've ever read. GRRM is a genius.

I loved the first two books in this bundle, despite the continued loss of favorite characters and repeated cliff hangers, but began to struggle with the meandering plot and abject violence in the third and was wrung out and defeated by a lack of plot progress in the fourth book. As much as I want to know what happens, I don't think I'll subject myself to the fifth book right now. I'm exhausted by this series. Maybe I'll read the cliff notes and hope for the best for my remaining favorite characters.
