Reveiw: "Game of Thrones" by George R. R. Martin

A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


I tried, I really tried. I like how the dialogue and action flow. I like the characters. But I do not like how each chapter flits between various point of views. I found myself asking "Who is this person?" every time I set the book down, then tried to pick it up and read it again. If you don't have time to just sit down and read the entire book, which I don't, then it becomes tiresome to try to remember all the people and situations.

I rated the book three stars, because I really did enjoy the writing. But I do not recommend this book unless you do not mind the changing POVs.

  1. Try Magician by Raymond Feist. I like Game of Thrones, but Magician is superior. In paperback, it's divided into two parts, Apprentice and Master.

    One of my favorite books of all time.
