George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series has become, in many ways, the gold standard for modern epic fantasy. Martin—dubbed the "American Tolkien" by Time magazine—has created a world that is as rich and vital as any piece of historical fiction, set in an age of knights and chivalry and filled with a plethora of fascinating, multidimensional characters that you love, hate to love, or love to hate as they struggle for control of a divided kingdom. It is this very vitality that has led it to be adapted as the HBO miniseries “Game of Thrones.”
This bundle includes the following novels:
A GAME OF THRONES
A CLASH OF KINGS
A STORM OF SWORDS
A FEAST FOR CROWS
A Masterpiece by any standard!
I think I can only add to the praise that "A Song Of Ice And Fire" has rightfully earned with this review. I, like many, was introduced to this series through the HBO television show. Initially daunted by the price, I downloaded a sample and was hooked right away. George Martin is a masterful author, and it shows on many levels; not only are his characters so dynamic and fantastic yet so readily relatable, he dares to defy conventions found not only in fantasy but in literature. I can't think of any other work of literature in which the most sympathetic character, indeed what could have been the protagonist, was killed so early on, or when a formerly antipathetic character was changed to be a sympathetic one! I offer "A Song of Ice and Fire" the highest possible praise, and look forward to the coming of books five and beyond! FIRE AND BLOOD!!!
An actual review...
For those of you looking for an actual review instead of alot of whining about pricing, here you go:
THESE BOOKS ARE AWESOME!!!!!!! It is an absolutely awesome series, with interesting characters, great storylines and plot twists. As much as I am enjoying the HBO series based on the first book, it really does not do the series justice. If you liked the TV show, you are going to love the books...
...yes the pricing is lame, but this is not the place for it. If you don't agree with the price, don't buy the ibook...pretty simple
With these novels being classified as "epic" and compared with LOTR, I thought they may be a bit difficult to read. However, they are great! Easy to read, interesting and many twists and turns. I can't wait to see what happens next.
I definitely recommend-and for fans of the HBO series, it follows very closely.
