A Song of Ice and Fire

George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire is one of the best fantasy series I've ever read. I highly recommend picking up the first book A Game of Thrones and giving it a read. I got so into it I finished the extant 3000 pages in about a week. It is a character driven work, and he's managed it so well there are characters you so completely loathe and others you love that you can't wait to find out what happens to them.

I almost failed an exam because of that book! Finished A Storm of Swords in three days.
I do agree, its the best fantasy series out there. Superbly plotted and written. Ive been waiting two years for the next one. Lazy bastard.

I too have been ejoying these compilations of words on paper. Reading them tells a story!
Uh, anyway, I like how he can write different characters quite well. You'd think that jumping from one set of eyes to another every chapter would become horribly confusing after a while, but things stitch together well after a while.
