A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin

A Game of ThronesA Game of Thrones is the first of the seven planned novels in the A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin. The book is set in medieval Europe-type fictional land where seasons can last for years, even decades, and follows three story-lines that develop with one another. Each chapter is told from the point of view of one of eight principal characters.

It’s hard for me to describe any of the plot, because so much happens and there are so many characters involved. I was a bit wary to start the book, as it’s not something I would choose for myself (it was recommended to me), but I ended up really enjoying it despite my initial reservations. I was engrossed in the characters early on, and it became a great escape from a monotonous day during downtime at work. I recommend this for anyone who’s willing to take on a little challenge by engulfing themselves in a completely different world for a little while each day, and anyone who’s ready to be introduced to lots of well-developed characters and an intricate plot.
