Purchased: Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire Book 1)

“All will play the Game of Thrones”

Author: George R R Martin

Genre: Fantasy, Adventure, Age: Adult

Released: 31st March 2011 (UK version)

Although I’m still reading The Great Hunt by Robert Jordan, I saw this for a measly £4 on Amazon. Even though I have way too many books being collected and not enough reading time, I couldn’t resist this bargain…

Although the plot is explicit, the writing quality is incredibly high. In a previous post, I mentioned that I’d already read a quarter of the book, when it was lent to me.

When I get the chance to read this book, it will be from the beginning.


Summers span decades. Winter can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne has begun. It will stretch from the south, where heat breeds plot, lusts and intrigues; to the vast and savage eastern lands; all the way to the frozen north, where an 800-foot wall of ice protects the kingdom from the dark forces that lie beyond. Kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars, lords and honest men…all will play the Game of Thrones. Winter is coming…


The alternative cover for this is much more sleek, but I don’t mind having the HBO series cover:
