Rating: 4 stars
– interesting plot
– rich history
– various players and sub plots
– maybe too many players
– not all subplots advance the story
– a little vulgar at times
General overview: although definitely not a book to hand your child or 13-year-old sister, a game of thrones is intense in pacing and rich in detail. My favourite character: Jon Snow and ironically, after that, Tyrion the Imp Lannister.
Needless to say, I can’t wait to see how things will turn out!!!
