A Game of Thrones

A Game of Thrones  - George R.R. Martin For such a complex story told through multiple points of view, this book was amazingly readable. It took me a full month to read it, the storytelling was so dense. The pace moved quickly, every chapter propelling the story forward without skipping details or characterization. Every person in the cast of characters felt fully formed and necessary.

This book is a fantastic example of fantasy world building. I can't wait to read the next title in the series, and now I'll be hunting down the DVD of the HBO series to watch.
