This is the best book I have ever read! It is way better than the HBO TV show by the same name. George R.R. Martin kept me engaged with the story, always wanting to know what was going to happen next. He makes you feel like you are not just a reader, but are a part of the world of Westeros. It is a long read for sure, but it is definitely worth it.

If you enjoy carnage at every turn and have some time on your hands, this is the book for you. Although the television program is not always faithful to the book series, this is a must read for those awaiting the upcoming television series return. Don't become too attached to a character, however. Martin has a habit of not playing favorites when it comes to killing off people!

This series is amazing!
Hodor!!!!!

This book is suitable for adults (as in 18 and older). BUT, it is INTENSELY inappropriate for young children and it has intense violence. Also the rest of the series is the same.

It's nice to see that this series is as good as/better than the HBO show. Very, very descriptive and definitely not light reading but it succeed where Tolkien fails - the details actually amount to character development or foreshadowing. Cannot wait to continue reading the series!
