A Game Of Thrones
Review 1: I have not watched the TV series yet, but the book was an amazing thrill ride the entire way through. I felt like I was taking a journey through the seven kingdoms alongside the characters.
As the story progressed, the plot line began taking many twists and turns and all of the names were a bit hard to keep up with, but I eventually understood who was who. Overall, even though the book has numerous amount of pages, the multiple climactic moments and sharp-unexpected turns and very well put descriptions makes this all in all a great and almost fast paced read. Review 2: "A Game of Thrones" is the first book of an exceptional and in depth series of novels. The novel has a lot going on and it can be kind of confusing, it has three story lines going on at one time. It is largely focused on the Stark family, Ned Stark is the Lord of Winterfell, and the childhood best friend of King Robert, who's right-hand man is killed by his wife so King Robert offers Ned the job, which he reluctantly accepts. Ned's daughter, Sansa is betrothed to King Robert's son. The Stark family Deals with a lot of conspiracy. The second story is following a princess that has been exiled, whom is the last of the previous royal family. The third story is about Jon Snow, who is the illegitimate son of Eddard Stark who is the Lord of the north. He is in a special military order called the nights watch that protects the seven kingdoms from dangerous things like the white walkers that are like ice zombies that killed a lot of people many years ago. It is a very fantasy filled, and suspenseful book, that leaves you wanting more.
