You'll never want to put it down.
Amazing, just like the show. A definite must-read to get the real, in depth back stories.
There's not much point writing about George R. R. Martin's story – everyone knows it's a page turner with millions of fans. Totally agree this is worth buying.
So let's discuss the product: it's very nicely put together – beautiful design and box set, so far the books have been durable enough to not split despite some rough treatment. Text size is on the smaller side, but I like that in my books.
The only negative is that from about Book 3 onwards the books have low-frequency editing mistakes – paragraphs that break in the middle for no reason and spaces between words missing. It's frequent enough for you to notice it's a problem (and drive you slightly barmy if you're obsessive about writing errors), it's not frequent enough for me to say it's rubbish and return it.
At the end of the day I'd still buy it again, so what does that say-
George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire is the greatest fantasy epic of the modern age – this box set collects volumes 1–5 of the series into a collectable 6 book boxed set.
The A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE series has set the benchmark for contemporary epic fantasy. Labelled by Time magazine as one of the top 100 most influential people in the world, George RR Martin has conjured a world as complex and vibrant as that of J.R.R. Tolkien’s, populated by a huge cast of fascinating, complex characters, and boasting a history that stretches back twelve thousand years.
Three great storylines weave through the books, charting the civil war for control of the Seven Kingdoms; the defence of the towering Wall of ice in the uttermost north against the unearthly threat of the Others; and across the Narrow Sea the rise to power of Daenerys Targaryen and the last live dragons in the world.
In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. The cold is returning, and in the frozen wastes to the north of Winterfell, sinister and supernatural forces are massing beyond the kingdom…
The box set includes:
A GAME OF THRONES
A CLASH OF KINGS
A STORM OF SWORDS, 1: STEEL AND SNOW
A STORM OF SWORDS, 2: BLOOD AND GOLD
A FEAST FOR CROWS
A DANCE WITH DRAGONS
Reviews for series
George R.R. Martin sold his first story in 1971 and has been writing professionally since then. He spent ten years in Hollywood as a writer-producer, working on The Twilight Zone, Beauty and the Beast, and various feature films and television pilots that were never made. In the mid '90s he returned to prose, his first love, and began work on his epic fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire. He has been in the Seven Kingdoms ever since. Whenever he's allowed to leave, he returns to Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he lives with the lovely Parris, and two cats named Augustus and Caligula, who think they run the place.
