A review by ocean_the_reader
A Game of Thrones, by George R.R. Martin

adventurous challenging dark mysterious tense slow-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? Yes
  • Loveable characters? It's complicated
  • Diverse cast of characters? N/A
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? It's complicated


The writing was fantastic and im really liking the political stuff in this fantasy world. It was slow but the slowness had a purpose so it didn't feel like it was dragging. The characters varied from sweet and innocent, to not so sweet and innocent, to morally gray which I personally loved. I loved seeing how the characters handled situations and grew from it.
Spoileralthough I do wish that Daenerys was the one to kill her brother Viserys, and I hope that Sansa is able to get out of Jofferys claws.
