What the community says about A Song of Ice and Fire
- "The best novel series to read is A Song of Ice and Fire 1-5, part of the Game of Thrones series. It is the source for the much loved HBO series Game of Thrones. Written by George R. R. Martin, it is a fantastical tale of dragons and treachery that all readers will lose themselves when reading."
- "The world its history in this story is meticulously built and the characters that populate it are rich and full of detail. Everything about the story is very complex and ambiguous and will challenge any preconceived notions you have about fantasy worlds and fiction in general. This is a must read for any lover of fantasy or historical drama. "
- "The books are a must read for any fan of show of Game of Thrones. This book set is not a quick resource to look back on relationships, kingdoms, and timelines, however. I would look elsewhere, such as wikipedia, for a quick overview of specific information or a refresher."
- "The level of literature this series is on is unmatched by any other. I've never read anything like it, it's almost too much to take in a at once. The action and characters are by far what stand out the most in this series. It's kind of like rooting for your favorite sports team and their star players, but except they die. I highly recommend reading the series as you watch the show, because the series is definitely more detailed than the show""As a fantasy book nut who reads at least three fantasy books a month. This series would be perfect for the die hard Game of Thrones fan. If you love the TV show and want to know more about how the Game of Thrones came to be then this is a must read. If you're not a Game of Thrones fan then this won't be of much interest to you.""These books are sooo much better than the HBO series. HBO has combined many characters and left out many dozens if not hundreds. The books go much more in depth in the family histories, politics, and even combat than the series.""I'm a big fan of GOT and bought this at Amazon for a good price and read all the books, which are much better than the TV series. The books give a much more in depth look into the GOT world that any fun will love."
- "I can recommend reading the A Song of Ice and Fire series but I cannot recommend this set. Yeah, they are cheap but you get what you pay for with tiny print and flimsy materials even in the 'leather' bound set. Do yourself a favor and buy a good set because these are books you're going to want to keep around despite the size.""I wanted a fantasy novel to read. A song of Ice and Fire was terrible. The book did not whet the appetite of anyone who is into the genre. I was bummed out after learning of this weak story.""A Song of Ice and Fire 1-5 is a great sci-fi or fantasy book. It is part of an epic series and will make you want to read more."
