Review This Book

User Reviews

I bought this on a whim because I had cash to spare, and I am so glad I did. The characters are so well rendered, it was impossible not to fall in love with them, and Martin often makes his charaters suffer like no other author dares. His evil charaters are so venomous and vicious you end up begging for them to be hurt. At times there are so many characters that one would die and I would have forgotten whether or not I should rejoice or not. But that only happens with some minor characters and because of the sheer size of the world Martin has created. This book, and series, is a must read whether or not you prefer fantasy or not.

Briliant !

Review By yomanT

I believe I first read this book in 1997 while laid up from surgery. I picked it up because I loved the cover art. (I'm bad about doing that.) Thankfully it turned out to be a great book. Martin is the first author (actually the only author) who caught up so emotionally with his characters that I hurled the book across the room at one part because he ticked me off so bad. All through the building up to the moment, I kept telling myself...he wouldn't dare! He wouldn't! Well, he did. Anyone having read this will know what part I'm speaking of. Of course, being bed-ridden at the time, I had to call hubby upstairs to retrieve the book for me. For any and all fantasy lovers, this series is a must read. I just wish Mr. Martin would write faster.

So many plots.. but that's not a bad thing!

Review By tyr888

While it does have this odd 'incest for everyone' begining, there is no denying the enjoyment that can be had reading this book. The plot is very intricate and the world George R.R. Martin creates is fantastic. Defintly worth the read.
