it was amazing

A truly epic novel of immense proportions. I agree with some of the other reviewers who note that this is more political than fantasy adventure - it essentially sets up what would seem to be a good fantasy story line over the coming books. In A Game of Thrones, you have: 1 an incredibly complex story encompassing seemingly hundreds of characters; 2 a terrific narrative told each chapter from the perspective of 8 main characters... and there are no clear motives... 3 a strong foundation of more good things to come. 800 pages that I flew through, with excitement of what is to come.
