A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)

A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1) - George R.R. Martin A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin was published in 1996. I can't believe it took me fifteen years to discover it. I have always been a lover of the fantasy genre, especially epic fantasy such as this book, so it's quite strange that I never picked it up. Not until I started seeing previews of a certain series that was coming to HBO in Spring 2011 did I learn that it was based on a book and then my interest was piqued... highly. This book is both plot and character driven and that is what makes it so great.(due to recent incidents of plagiarism here and in the blogosphere, this is a condensed version of the review.
