Honest to God(s)new and old , i saw the series first and read the book next expecting it to be good not much different from the series and yet i am astonished that this book is so much superior to the show , the show while still a masterclass couldn't explain even if it tried the emotions and intent behind every move one makes in the game of thrones that they play the book explains and then some more , there's a lot of history told and the myths explained .But this is not to say that the book is good only when compared to the show , the book has created a world of fantasy that one has never seen or heard before , the politics,betrayal, war and the unlikeliest of the hereos and everyone has his / her moral dillema , nobody is all good and certainly some of the characters aren't pure evil, this in my honest opinion is the best EPIC FANTASY book out there , a must read for all
