Product Description

Review

‘A Game of Thrones grabs hold and won’t let go. It’s brilliant.’
Robert Jordan

‘Colossal, staggering… Martin captures all the intoxicating complexity of the Wars of the Roses or Imperial Rome in his imaginary world… one of the greats of fantasy literature.’
SFX

‘Fantasy literature has never shied away from grandeur, but the sheer-mind-boggling scope of this epic has sent other fantasy writers away shaking their heads… Its ambition: to construct the Twelve Caesars of fantasy fiction, with characters so venomous they could eat the Borgias.’
Guardian

‘Such a splendid tale. I couldn’t stop till I’d finished and it was dawn.’
Anne McCaffrey

OK, this is a review to clarify a few things. There seem to be a number of reviews for different versions of this boxset grouped together on amazon - this review is based on the newly released (12th July 11) paperback boxset, with the BLUE box case.

I say review, but this is more to confirm a few things. The novels are excellent, you can read dozens of reviews for these individual books on amazon.

Firstly, each book DOES contain maps at the front. The appendix at the back of the books contain details of the families and Houses featured in the story. Both are very handy for reference. Secondly, the print is nice and crisp.

A word of warning : this boxset contains an companion book. Pay attention to the first page which states it contains spoilers - a flick through could quickly reveal something you haven't read yet and didn't want to know, for example the death of characters!

When you consider the individual RRP price of these books this really does represent great value for money, and should appeal to many fans new to the series on the back of HBO's Game Of Thrones. This boxset does not contain the latest novel in the series, this was only released in hardback on the same day of this boxset release.

EDIT - I'd just like to explain that before release, this boxset contained 9-10 reviews for various other editions of the Game of Thrones/A Song of Fire and Ice boxsets, both in print and Kindle editions, with conflicting reviews about the quality of the print, missing maps, missing books from the set etc. This is why I wrote this review to clarify these points mentioned. Post-release, Amazon initially separated off those reviews, however they now all seem to be grouped under this page again. So please be aware that some of the reviews you read here might be for old editions of this boxset - if the review date is *before* 12th July 2011 then it likely refers to a previous boxset release. Hope this makes sense!

I came to this series via the four-book Kindle package and read all four books back-to-back over a few weeks.

On the Kindle format:
It seems as though the publishers have no concept of proof reading and quality control. One in ten pages contains typos and formatting errors that often cause the reader to pause in a "What... wait?" manner until you work out the error and can read on.

On the books themselves:
The first three books are a great read. Gripping, thrilling, intriguing. The theme, itself, is epic. The character development is detailed and three-dimensional in a way that is often lacking in too many books. The author's ability to garner sympathy for despised characters and induce annoyance with loved characters is to be commended. The world the author has so lovingly described feels real, populated by real characters.

The fourth book, A Feast For Crows, is where this series loses its way. This book is in dire need of a strong editor possessing ferocious ability with a red pen. I found myself skipping over yet another tedious description of the attire of a minor, unimportant character, or yet another description of muddied fields, grey rocks and rotting corpses in the desperate hope of getting to the [plot] point.

Full and considered characters who developed so well over the first three books suddenly become two-dimensional caricatures. The plot, where there is one, is ponderous and the device of turning the end of almost every chapter into a cliffhanger wears decidedly thin. Like much good American TV drama that runs for too many seasons, it turns into a soap opera where you just think, "Oh come on!" I kept reading in the hope that something of substance would happen, only to be mostly disappointed.

The Kindle version does include the maps. Just go to the contents page and select Maps. It also includes all the Appendix.

Contrary to another review below, there is NO book missing from the series (think about it... why would they miss one out?).

There are four books thus far (A Game Of Thrones, A Clash Of Kings, A Storm Of Swords, A Feast For Crows) with the fifth (A Dance With Dragons) coming out in July.

A quick check on Wiki will show you that is the case.

The reviewer below is confused as the paper back of the third book was split into two volumes by the publisher (not by the author), where as this set provides all four books as the author intended.

The series itself is excellent, and I'm hoping fans of the equally excellent HBO series take the time to pick up the books. You'll love it.

As someone mentioned below, there is a newer boxset of the series that has been released since the television programme came out. It's a great set of books and for the first three titles I found myself having to set a number of pages I was allowed to read per day to make it last a little longer! You'll find out if you read the individual reviews that 'A Feast For Crows' is less popular with everyone (I found the descriptions of numerous different types of trees tiresome at this point and the style and chapter headings change slightly) but I still found it a worthwhile read, especially if you have read the previous novels and become involved with the world that's created.

Just to inform you all on a couple of points about this boxset itself, the physical size of the books are slightly larger than if you bought them all individually by themselves. So the ones you get in the boxset are around the size of the Harry Potter paperbacks whereas if you got the books individually they are of the more traditional sized paperbacks (like the Discworlds). I hope that's clear and you understand what I'm trying to say just in case you are as OCD as me in having books of the same series all similar!

Also, the boxset comes with a companion booklet if that has any sway towards your decision of whether to get the whole set together or get each book individually. Be warned though that the companion booklet is just re-hash of the appendices and maps found in 'A Feast for Crows' and has no new content, as I thought it would have when I got this. Personally, I find this a bit pointless but some people may like having a separate book to refer to rather than going back and forth in the actual novels.

Hopefully that gives you a better idea of what you'll be buying, overall the stories are amazing and the books are fine quality-wise but I think I'd rather have got each book individually so that it will look nicer on the bookshelf when the future paperback books come out!
