I hated many characters at the beginning and throughout most of the books. By the end, I didn't hate anyone, with the exception of Cersei. Instead, I am rooting for everyone to make it. Poor bastards. What will George do to you in Book 8?

Currently on the fifth book of the set, the epic scope of the series and its themes merged with the pervasive, 'All men must die'. My nephew said, "Fabulous stories but everybody dies!" George Martin's literary descriptions of death are more powerful than the crass body count of the video nasty (archaic phrase dates me), so I am enjoying the sustained sense of mortality the book generates in me.

So gritty, you never know what youre going to get with A Game of Thrones. Word of advice before reading these books- try not to get attached to characters...they will most likely be killed off in a very gruesome, heart breaking manner.

George is an incredible writer. I am in awe of the way he cleverly, artfully, tells this epic tale from so many perspectives. The wit and politics are masterful. Each character is relatable and you feel like you're living in the story with them. The style of fantasy is down-to-earth, fundamentally people are the same in his fiction as the ones we interact with on different levels in the present, just told in a more elaborate way. :o) I eagerly await more.
