A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin

My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Date Started: March 17th, 2011
Date Finished: July 4th, 2011

I liked it. I had one friend who informed me I should read it several months before the television show was released. Sadly I didn’t manage to finish the book before the first season of the television show finished, which meant that two key plot points of the climax of the book were spoiled for me. Being such a relatively old book most say it should be well past spoiler period but I digress.

As a book it was a good read but it didn’t inspire me to read it very much. It dragged in the middle, causing me to put it down as much as read it and I even paused to read another book in the middle of this one. Only one or two of the characters out of a rather large cast really kept my attention. I’ll be pausing before picking up the next book but I’ll eventually get to it.
