'Historical' Epic Fantasy

on 7/12/2011

The first installment of A Song of Ice and Fire reveals Martin's genius in creating a feudal society and the political machinations that went on behind the scenes. The end result is that everything seems real...and it is only when a direwolf or other non-earth creature appears that you remember that this is not a (wonderfully done) recreation of European history, Hadrian's wall and all. (But then again, maybe it is!) His characters come in so many assortments and with so much psychological depth that there is always something new, something deeper to discover about an individual and there is always someone you love to hate or to mourn with. An author who can do that on the scale that Martin does is truly a dedicated, talented, hardworking author, and every page reveals that Martin is just that. The writing is superbly crafted, the situations and plot carefully and intricately developed. The book is full of many surprises and developments that kept me unable to put it down, and I awaited the 2nd volume with much anticipation and I'll read the 3rd as soon as it comes out. This book truly earned its 5 stars.

this book is without a doubt the best book i have read in over a year..it has the most intricate and complicated plot , that keeps you on your guard for the next big change. altogether very well done my only complaint is that the author seems to go a little overboard on the sex but whatever.
