Review: A Game of Thrones

A Game of Thrones
A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book and consider it worth the read. However, I say that with some restrictions.

-You should not read this book if you aren’t willing to devote yourself to a series. This book can’t stand alone. It is essentially a primer laying ground work as nothing is resolved within the 800 some odd pages.

-There are too many characters! The story itself is told from about 7 or 8 different people and that’s not including the minor players in the game…at times it get confusing and really there are a lot of other back stories that make you feel a bit lost.

With those two things being said, I still highly recommend the read. The story is wonderful and the character development is pretty good (if not jumpy)
