A Game of ThronesA Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I am not really a reader of fantasy books, though I found this one easier to read than most. It’s not due to a lack of descriptive language, but rather the quick pacing of the novel. Every chapter is a short story, from a different characters point of view, which I enjoyed immensely because it makes it so well rounded.

There are characters who I love, such as Arya, and Ned as well as others, but even those I detest such as Cersei are fleshed out. I found the characters emotions were well written into the plot, so that I could identify as a reader in some small sliver of a way.

My only qualm with this book would be the sex scenes which are horridly written, often cheesy and often problematically written.

I also found it interesting, upon this re-read to see how much of this book actually did end up in the series.

About Ashley LP

I'm a twenty something who loves nothing in this world more than travel and reading. It is for this reason I run a (not so well used) travel blog, and work as a travel agent. It is also why I run a (more used) book blog. There are two types of travel we can have in life, travel in fiction, or non-fiction and real world travel. I have a firm belief in both.
