A Game of Thrones, by George R.R. Martin
vigil's review against another edition
adventurous challenging dark emotional sad tense medium-paced
- Plot- or character-driven? A mix
- Strong character development? Yes
- Loveable characters? It's complicated
- Diverse cast of characters? Yes
- Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes
a very strong start to an epic fantasy series. martin weaved multiple pov's, separate plotlines, and a staggering cast of characters with ease. his prose is descriptive without being overindulgent. his handling of the dothraki, and how so many women dies in childbirth is :/ his cishet white man shenanigans aside, i loved this book. even at several hundred pages (what the fuck george) heed all content warnings.
