Read in September, 2011

A Game of Thrones is more a political page-turner than a fantasy. There are fantasy elements in the story, but the majority of the tension comes from ruling families competing for their ways of life. The political intrigue made for tense reading, so this was not a book I read when I was wanting to unwind.

Although I had picked up the book hoping for a more lighthearted fantasy than was offered, by the end of the book I was wrapped up in the storyline. Sometime I may try the next book in the series, but due to the couple of drawn-out sex scenes he throws in I will not buy it. Cautions: language, sex.
