Wow. And Wow. This Game of Thrones book has to be one of the greatest idea ever realized in fantasy literature. You get every side of the action and its not that difficult to understand. A Game of Thrones book is the first installment of A song of ice and fire franchise. Lets look at the plus and minuses to what this book has to offer.
First the plus. The main plus is that you can see the action from multiple viewpoints. There are plenty of twists that will keep you guessing. And not in any point in the story, you can conclude that “this person is the protagonist of Game of Thrones book. I will see him through the end of the series.” This is because it turns out wrong every time. Once you start getting the hang of a particular character’s decision, then boom, he/she would turn out dead. But it’s entirely up to the reader to decide the protagonist. If the reader likes a particular person, then he/she is the protagonist of the Game of Thrones book. But I can guarantee it will change with time. The next plus is the description. Every little thing is incredibly detailed.
Now, the minuses. The first minus is the description. Yeah it is both a plus and a minus. Every little thing is incredibly detailed. So, at many times in this Game of Thrones book, one will get tired through this unnecessary descriptions. Though it gives the reader the rich experience of the rich environment, it feels repetitive at times. The next up is the length of the book. God! It’s massive! But the plot is really interesting. That keeps the flow going despite its massive length.
I’m giving A Game of Thrones 4.5/5
