One of the Greats
Reading multiple reviews beforehand, I bought this book with high hopes and it certainly lived up to my expectations. If you like fantasy fiction books then this is a must read. In my opinion it holds many similarities to the mythology of King Arthur, especially in terms of the world that Martin introduces. The characters which he has created are extremely well done and really are brought to life. You will find yourself growing attached to some, loathing others, laughing at some and becoming disappointed at certain peoples decisions. It is difficult to describe how much I recommend this book, as you can see by my 5 star rating, though I can say this book has certainly joined my top three fiction favourites and I look forward to starting George Martin's second instalment in the clash of kings.
