I can hardly believe it, but I have fallen in love with this series. I do like imagniary worlds and medieval times, but I tend to get attached to characters and stop reading if the author kills them off. I would warn any readers like me, not to get attached to these characters, because most of them don't last long. They are, however, well-drawn characters, with clear individual personalities and their actions run true to character. Nothing seems forced or contrived.

I have read the first book and
This book is outstanding! I will forewarn any readers though that there are themes of incest, adultery and explicit sexual encounters. I can skip over those in books and still value the story behind the book. There are fabulous twists and turns. It is difficult to follow at first because there are so many characters to keep track of. It is also difficult to make some connections. There is a website devoted to making these connection, but it can also lead to spoilers. Overall I thought that this ...more

Love this series. Can't wait for books 6 & 7. Books 1-3 were the best, with 3 being my favorite. Lots of characters and surprises. It's a fantasy soap opera... But a really good one! I relied on the HBO website to make my way through the characters and land. This story has the best characters: John Snow, Tyrion, and Arya are a few of my favorites! Read the books... The show isn't as good.

Having already watched the first season on HBO made this book less of a page turner than it should be. As a result it took months to finish. I believe I would've liked it better had I read the book before seeing the show.
Russ Smith
Compelling story lines, layered characters, amazing twists, make this an outstanding book. Well witten fantasy adventure for grown ups.
Lena Henderson
Fantastic book series! My life had to stop while I was reading them:)
amazing read... a must read i should say.. there is alot more than just the story of kings and thrones.. words have deeper meanings than it seem...

i must admit, it was difficult to remember the characters and the linkage cause there are too many characters to remember and understand each ones personality ...

The uniqueness about the book was that it was not just ONE third party perspective.. every chapter was about a different character and how he/she sees things differently..

there were no heroes
Started this book a while back but didn't finish before it expired. Started to watch the HBO series and decided it was worth waiting for again. I love the who LOR feel to the store and love the fact the dragons will come into play at some point in this series. There are battles to be won, secret lovers, strategic games playing all taking place for the right to sit on the Throne of the 7 realms. Can't wait to find out what happens in the next book.

I don't get it. Why is this so popular? I abandoned it after page 350 because it was starting to feel like homework. Although when I mentioned that to a co-worker they said that THAT was about the point that they started to really get into it. I might revisit it because I just started watching the show. There are WAY too many characters to keep track of and the writing is rather dull.
Excellent Book! I love the HBO Series but of course books are normally always better. The book actually goes farther then Season 3 of the show did, It only covers about 2/3's of the book. Can't wait for Season 4 to start a lot of stuff happens in last part of the book. Love the Series.

Best Fantasy novel I'd ever read at the time. Still probably my favourite of the series, as it opened my thirteen year old eyes to what really good speculative fiction actually was.

Unfortunately it also kind of spoiled me. I have prohibitively high standards for fantasy fiction now.
Zoë Di
Well written and overall engaging. For a book of this size, I was expecting a lot more pointless detail, but it well crafted. The political maneuvering was rather slow, and around page 500 my patience wavered, but good. Will read the sequel after I finish a few other books.

I actively disliked this book. Too many POVs. Too many pure evil characters. Not enough complicated characters. Or if there were, we certainly didn't get there fast enough to make sticking with this book worth it.
Michele Arms
Really liked it but it took a long time to get it read. Loved all the characters, the writing and story are just great. I'd like to read the rest of them but I don't know when I can get to them!

I'm one of those people who was hooked by the show and then had to go out and read the book. I very much enjoyed it, and I plan to read the next one as soon as possible.
I'm really hard to get intrigued in a good fantasy novel series, but this one blew me away with the character detail and story development. Absolutely wonderful.
Patricia Klein
Wow. This was a bit of a "hard" read. Very involved story line and tons of characters to keep track of. But it did finally grip me and decided to read on to the next.
This book, and the entire series, is engaging and well-written. The only downside is that the author leaves a lot of loose ends.
Stephanie Allsop
I wasn't sure I'd like the book but I found it was a very good book! I really enjoyed it and look forward to finishing the series!
Craig Moorhead
Really good involving stuff, mostly, but about 100 pages from the end I said "Okay, I get it." and skimmed the rest.
Abigail Whitney
It was ok but I like the tv production better! Not my usual stance, I know but it read like the script for the show!
This series is a MUST read...had me hooked from page one!!! Absolutely loved the characters and the story!

Awesome! I've read them all and so bummed they're all done :( BUT went and got the 1st season on DVD :)

Everything about this book will make you feel sad, and apparently the series has got worse in stock.
If you love medieval, you will love this series. Very realistic and detailed.
