Simply put: the best ongoing Fantasy series out there.,
By A Customer
This review is from: A Storm of Swords (Paperback)
I simply love this series. I could not wait for the book to come out here in America, so I had a friend buy it and ship it from the U.K.! This series is that good, and this book does not let me down one bit. Martin's books are the only "big time series" books by an author who has not only kept me coming back, but made me want to devour each and every word! He has not made the mistakes of Eddings and Jordan by making his characters too powerful, and his character development is so much better than Goodkind's. I normally read books so fast that my friends aren't use to seeing me come in with the same books more than two or three days. They kept on asking me what was taking me so long with this book- I was taking my time to savor every word, like you savor a great meal. I also read it twice, in a row. Something I have never done with a book until now! I only have three compaints: "Why can't more people write like this?", "Why is it that all of these books seem to end too quickly?" and, "How long do I have to wait for the next one?" If you haven't started reading this series, start now. I have gotten all of my friends around the office hooked and all it took was putting A Game of Thrones in their hands and telling them to read at least fifty pages...
