A Game of Thrones by George R.R Martin

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.
