    Ten years and five hundred comments later and men still think I care if they disagree with me.WARNING If you enjoyed this book, even a little bit, you may not want to read this review It will probably make you angry Heaven knows that the book made me furious, and I intend to turn every bit of that wrath back on it.Instead, I suggest you read karen s review, Brigid s review, Joyzi s review, or any other of the gushing four and five star reviews here If video reviews are your style, I suggest Melina Pendulum s vlog about this book.Realistically, I know a lot of you are not going to listen, which is why the edit is here At least it will slow you down a little.EDIT adding one thing because, despite the warning and the redirect links I kindly provided, I have indeed gotten the kind of sexist bullshit comments I anticipated Before you launch into the usual defense, therefore, I give you this Alternatively, some fans may find it tempting to argue Well this media is a realistic portrayal of societies like X, Y, Z But when you say that ...

    There are plenty of fantasy authors who claim to be doing something different with the genre Ironically, they often write the most predictable books of all, as evidenced by Goodkind and Paolini Though I m not sure why they protest so much predictability is hardly a death sentence in genre fantasy.The archetypal story of a hero, a villain, a profound love, and a world to be saved never seems to get old it s a great story when it s told well At the best, it s exciting, exotic, and builds to a fulfilling climax At the worst, it s just a bloodless rehash Unfortunately, the worst are common by far.Perhaps it was this abundance of cliche romances that drove Martin to aim for something different Unfortunately, you can t just choose to be different, any than you can choose to be creative Sure, Moorcock s original concept for Elric was to be the anti Conan, but at some point, he had to push his limits and move beyond difference for difference s sake and he did.In similar gesture, Martin rejects the allegorical romance of epic fantasy, which basically means tearing out the guts of the genre the wonder, the ideals, the heroism, and with them, the moral purpose Fine, so he took out the rollicking fun and the social message what did he replace them with Like the post Moore comics ...

    I really feel the necessity of a bit of personal backstory here, before I start the review Back in 1996 when this book first came out, and I was about 14 or 16 years old, I saw the hardcover on a sale table for about 5 and couldn t resist a bargain still can t, though I m cautious these days So I started reading this book with the vague idea that it was a flop, and that may not have helped, but I got through 100 pages of it before feeling so crapped off with it that I shoved it in my cupboard and tried not to think about it Page 108 to be exact More on why later.If you ve heard of this book, or read it, you re probably aware that far from being the flop I assumed it was at the time and I didn t know anyone who was reading it , the series has gone on to be one of the big Cash Cows of the fantasy genre Computer games, role playing games there s even a board game that looks like Risk Sooner or later there ll be a movie or something, no doubt I m moderately surprised one isn t in the works already People love this book and this series So I m well aware I ll probably be lynched for this review, because even the people on Goodreads who didn t like it still had great things to say about it.But reviews are subjective, and here s mine.In the vein of Tolkein, Jordan, Elliott, Goodkind, Hobb, Eddings, Feist et al, A Game of Thrones is set in the classicly boring and overdone medieval England esque setting, and i...

    yup.nerds, now i am among you.this is going to be a review where i just prattle on and on about meee meee meee, because let s face it there are a million reviews of this puppy out there so i don t have to worry about doing a disservice to the book you ll either read the book or you won t but you should it s got direwolves.i wasn t going to read this after years of watching hordes of desperate sad eyed nerds coming up to me, asking any news on the george r.r martin release like the bn computer knows , somehow, than the internet it doesn t and i would have to tell them not without some schadenfreude glee nope it has just been moved back another year it gave me a solid sense of there but for the grace like when you see a very young junkie and you congratulate yourself for dodging that particular bullet.despite what i kept hearing about how awesome the books were, i just filed it away in the mental RA folder of stuff nerds like and figured one day i would read them, you know for research, but not before they were all out i wasn t going to get sucked into the trap of so many before me t...

    I rated this in 2010 In 2017 it s time I actually use my words.Here s my long overdue review of A Game of Thrones I was looking at the current reviews Here you have a book with a ridiculously high average rating, vast sales, and the most liked reviews are three 1 s and an unrated comedy piece Do we love to hate that much Apparently we do Not only is knocking down easier than building, it s also fun to watch Well, sadly all I have to offer here is a less exciting set of praise for the genius and importance of this book.The first bit of genius is that on paper GRRM writes in not only the opposite manner to me but in a manner I profess to dislike Wait I like how he writes on paper you know what I mean.Things he does that should annoy me I Lengthy descriptions of everything, especially food, clothing, and architecture Normally I hate wading through that stuff to get at the story Somehow GRRM does it in a way I like.II Large numbers of point of view characters I normally find this makes each of them rather shallow and stereotyped GRRM is magnificent with characters and brings even the throw away non point of view ones to life.III Huge, expanding story lines I tend to like some sort of focus but every corner you tur...

    When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die There is no middle ground 3 1 2 stars So in one weekend I finally finished the book I picked up and put down about ten years ago, and watched the final episode of the TV series I have loved for eight years How odd that the book ended up better than I expected, and the TV show, um didn t Warning I will be talking about the depiction of rape in this review.I think I was ready to commit this time around I d already watched the show and become invested in the characters, so reading 900 pages about them didn t seem so unattractive I think it s quite well written, especially the dialogue, which is where Martin shines It s also just entertaining for the most part The bloody vicious backstabbing kind of entertainment that, apparently, I do like.It s also an amazing feat of world building I was blown away by the amount of thought and detail that has gone into this and it s just the first book Martin has considered details that would never have even crossed my mind little sayings, folktales and quirks particular to the people of certain regions or certain houses but it all serves to make a very rich and complex world that is all the believable for it He has created a whole new universe from scratch, one with thousands of years of history, and many different peoples and culture...

    Reader Logic I HATE this book.I HATE it so much I had to get a new hardback copy to read so I could underline all the parts I HATE about it so much and post them on Goodreads.I HATE it with such a passion I also bought copies for all my friends and family, also in new hardback editions, so they could HATE it along with me.When the TV series came on I was so fuming with rage I watched the entire season twice and bought six copies of the DVD, because I could not believe how much I could HATE something.I had spent so much time discussing how much I HATE this, with all my friends, who HATE it too and who all bought copies, I decided to get a George RR Martin tattoo on my buttock to show how strong my HATRED for his work is There was such a collectivity at the time like everyone uniting in HATING this together that some of us formed relationships in HATE I ...

    I tried reading this a long time ago and gave up very quickly I know many love it but I think from the start I knew it wasn t for me Looooong fantasy series never have been, for some reason HOWEVER, I have to confess that the TV series is such a guilty pleasure of mine And, even though I will never return to this series, can we all just take a minute to admit that how I spent my week...

    First off, I m a heavy duty fan of GRRM I ve read over a 100 different fantasy authors in my time Took about 5 years off from the genre b c I felt it was all getting too formulaic and cliched So, when I came back to fantasy I read the usual Goodkind, Jordan, etc and then someone told me about GRRM and man, that was the kicker Here are the reasons to choose GRRM I ve also listed the reasons not to choose him to make it fair b c I know their are certain personalities who won t like this series WHY TO READ GRRM 1 YOU ARE TIRED OF FORMULAIC FANTASY good lad beats the dark lord against impossible odds boy is the epitome of good he and all his friends never die even though they go through great dangers the good and noble king the beautiful princess who falls in love with the commoner boy even though their stations are drastically different you get the idea After reading this over and over, it gets old 2 YOU ARE TIRED OF ALL THE HEROES STAYING ALIVE EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE UNDER CONSTANT DANGER this gets even worse where the author kills a main hero off but that person comes back later in the story Or, a hero does die but magic brings him back This sometimes carries to minor characters where even they may not die, but most fantasy authors like to kill them off to show that some risked the adventure and perished 3 YOU ARE A MEDIEVAL HISTORY BUFF th...
