Don’t waste your money or time. Book is boring. I stopped half way through to read the reviews and see if I was missing something. I wasn’t it’s just lame.
Huge disappointment! This book reads like the book of Numbers in the Bible. Endless trail of names and mayhaps, unrelated rabbit holes. It is a maddening mess with only brief interludes of coherent consistent story line.
Very long and dry. A book presented more like a long list of characters than a story. Reminiscent of the part of the Bible with all the begats lol
As a fan of the GoT series I absolutely love this book, I realize a lot of people don’t like this because it’s written more as a history book instead of going in detail with each character. But while it doesn’t go j to as much detail with each character it still tells the beginning of Targaryen rule wonderfully. It has lore, story, twists and turns everywhere. It gets you to feel love and hatred and sympathy for characters in such a small amount of time. If you want to learn more of the history of the history behind our favorite series this is definitely a must. If you’re not into history books so much maybe just sample it and buy it if you you like it, otherwise just wait for the next book/season to come out.
More of a history book than a novel but, was hard to put down once I got started.
Terrible book. I was expecting an action-packed thriller, instead I got a boring, fictional history of Westeros. Admittedly I only read 100 or so pages, but it was like reading the Old Testament.
Way better than I expected it to be. Can’t wait for the second book!!!!!
