Fantasy. Fiction. HTML:

George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series has become, in many ways, the gold standard for modern epic fantasy. Martin--dubbed the "American Tolkien" by Time magazine--has created a world that is as rich and vital as any piece of historical fiction, set in an age of knights and chivalry and filled with a plethora of fascinating, multidimensional characters that you love, hate to love, or love to hate as they struggle for control of a divided kingdom. It is this very vitality that has led it to be adapted as the HBO miniseries "Game of Thrones."

This bundle includes the following novels:
A GAME OF THRONES
A CLASH OF KINGS
A STORM OF SWORDS
A FEAST FOR CROWS

Author as lost his way. Shock style writing and cliff hangers at the end of almost every chapter. The language and absurd sexual exploits and incest are not to my liking. The lack of professionalism and dedication are the icing on this garbage cake. I don't care about any of the characters any more, and have no intention of finishing the series - I don't think Martin does either. I guess the TV series fans will get their way and HBO will do the job that Martin isn't capable of. ( )

Started watching TV series based on this book. Saw a couple of reviews of the text on Amazon and other places. The Kindle 4 books in one seemed a good deal as the sample download (free) from Amazon was nicely written and I thought I could get along with the style.

Using Kindle on the iPad. I would suggest getting the iBook version for iPad - looks more like a book (page numbers at the bottom rather than the annoying Kindle position)

Will get back with more critique when I have read further. ( )

Finished and...Amazing!!! With so many twists and turns, who knows what's going to happen next? Now, when is the next book finally coming out? ( )

I might have loved this book, but found it was like a written version of a soap opera, or the worst type of tv documentary because it moves at glacial speed and is soooo repetitive. Perhaps I’ll try it again in my dotage, when my memory starts to go. ( )

Absolutely brilliant, amazing world-building, but enough with the maggots, sick tortures, and detailed massacres and rapes.
You had me, and then you lost me. ( )
