A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)
Oct 10, 2008
Partial review because I stopped reading the book after the first couple chapters. The unbelievably juvenile map at the beginning of the book should have been a clue that this ride was not going to end well: the names of the roads, towns, forests, etc. were all so retarded (the "Haunted Forest"? - we came up with better names for our D&D adventures when we were only 13!). The prose wasn't bad, although the style was a little affected, and the story line predictable. Maybe - except for Tolkein and White - I am just not a big fantasy fan anymore, although I think it's more the case that most fantasy writers are really just frustrated romance/swashbuckler writers who can't write that well. Seems to me that there is a lot better Sci Fi out there if I want to suspend my belief in reality.
