5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Box set but beware of amazon's image of the product., 13 July 2011
I purchased this beautiful box set on the 8th July and it has just arrived today, very fast shipping with MRW, I bought all the books at the same time because it was more affordable and you can keep them safe in the box which is very beautiful and does well his function.
All of my friends are reading these books, so, in order to be at her level, I bought this set to read them one after another and learn better the story of the books, in general, since it is a continuos story.
I haven't read all the books for the time being but I can definitely say that it's one of the most successful and catching sagas at the moment and the story of the books is very complex and well made.
But, since I am reviewing the box set, I could say that beware of the image of the product that Amazon gives, this image don't shows how is the product in reality.
In the picture it seems that the books are bigger than they actually are, the books are in paperback edition so the correct image would be a flattened box set with thicker books,that is, wider, and the quality of these books varies from one to another in "Game of Thrones" the paper is of lower quality than the first part of "Storm of Swords " because this one is shorter, and the font size also differs from book to book, the first book has a larger font size than the second.
But despite this, it is an excellent collection and can be read without any problem, the books are very comfortable to read as they are paperback editions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous, 12 Dec 2009
This review is from: Wonderland (Audio CD)
Perfect CD, mix of relaxing songs and anothers less relaxing, O Holy night is full of power and the rendition "Adiemus" of Karl Jenkins nearly makes you cry and is stunning; the song: "Somewhere Far Away" is a perfect mixing of vocals and amazing arrangements,and the lyrics are very beautiful.
This cd is a must have, and not only for Christmas.

5.0 out of 5 stars A GORGEOUS ALBUM FOR ALL THE SEASONS, 3 Nov 2009
This cd is incredibly good, and not only for Christmas time, the songs in the cd some are about Christmas but others not, this becomes the album a "Four seasons album".
When I first listened to the samples,they were a bit bad, but the album actually has beautiful acords, beautiful arrangements and so on...; the samples that I heard may were recorded badly.
In conclusion, for all the people that like the classical crossover genre and Christmas, and want to buy a perfect album, this cd is a must have. There are some versions of well known songs that are stunning, "Little Drummer Boy" this version, is perfect, all the arreganments,all instruments, it has a perfect harmony.
