George R. R. Martin please save us from D&D ! They are trash and they will destroy your world.
George RR Martin put together a great story, then broke it into a thousand puzzle pieces and pulled us into it all with great storytelling. This series is about power and human nature, with a medieval yet otherworldly setting. It has adult themes and it’s own history yet also has its own mythology, magic and dragons. While the HBO TV series is great, the books are better and far richer. It’s a lot of addictive reading, but you’ll be happy you read it. Note that the TV story lines have moved past book 5; readers anxiously await GRRM’s final book(s) in the series, which I plan to read even if the TV show is concluded.
Loved them can’t wait for the next one to come out.
I find that this book is really great from the depth and detail of the world itself to the intensity of how the houses and history make changes to the book now. Daenerys is definitely my favorite character talk about mother of dragons.
The way the chapters are numbered in this iBook collection is VERY frustrating! The character names & chapter number would be ideal -- please update this and I'll update my review accordingly.
