The A Song of Ice and Fire Series by George R.R. Martin Book Summary

For the first time, all five novels in the epic fantasy series that inspired HBO’s Game of Thrones are together in one eBook bundle. An immersive entertainment experience unlike any other, A Song of Ice and Fire has earned George R. R. Martin—dubbed “the American Tolkien” by Time magazine—international acclaim and millions of loyal readers. Now this bundle collects the entire monumental cycle in the most convenient format available:
 
A GAME OF THRONES
A CLASH OF KINGS
A STORM OF SWORDS
A FEAST FOR CROWS
A DANCE WITH DRAGONS
 
“One of the best series in the history of fantasy.”—Los Angeles Times
 
Winter is coming. Such is the stern motto of House Stark, the northernmost of the fiefdoms that owe allegiance to King Robert Baratheon in far-off King’s Landing. There Eddard Stark of Winterfell rules in Robert’s name. There his family dwells in peace and comfort: his proud wife, Catelyn; his sons Robb, Brandon, and Rickon; his daughters Sansa and Arya; and his bastard son, Jon Snow. Far to the north, behind the towering Wall, lie savage Wildings and worse—unnatural things relegated to myth during the centuries-long summer, but proving all too real and all too deadly in the turning of the season.
 
Yet a more immediate threat lurks to the south, where Jon Arryn, the Hand of the King, has died under mysterious circumstances. Now Robert is riding north to Winterfell, bringing his queen, the lovely but cold Cersei, his son, the cruel, vainglorious Prince Joffrey, and the queen’s brothers Jaime and Tyrion of the powerful and wealthy House Lannister—the first a swordsman without equal, the second a dwarf whose stunted stature belies a brilliant mind. All are heading for Winterfell and a fateful encounter that will change the course of kingdoms.
 
Meanwhile, across the Narrow Sea, Prince Viserys, heir of the fallen House Targaryen, which once ruled all of Westeros, schemes to reclaim the throne with an army of barbarian Dothraki—whose loyalty he will purchase in the only coin left to him: his beautiful yet innocent sister, Daenerys.
 
“Long live George Martin . . . a literary dervish, enthralled by complicated characters and vivid language, and bursting with the wild vision of the very best tale tellers.”—The New York Times

The A Song of Ice and Fire Series (George R.R. Martin) Book Reviews

Can't believe how amazing these books are!!!!Can't wait for book six to come out..Score: 5/5

Good but a long slogI have finally finished the set. Unlike the author, I will keep my words brief. This is excellent reading, however one should be prepared for the full breadth of the undertaking should one choose to walk down this road. It took me a year to read all of these books (usually 20 minutes a day of reading). I’m glad I finished it but I have to say, I do almost feel like the author feels compelled the story of every single day of a hundred different characters in great detail over the span of many years. That’s a huge and frankly unecessary adventure. I think the entire story could be told in half or even less than half as many pages. True fans will disagree and that’s ok. I think I am like most readers where I got lost too often for me to really love this, but it is good writing and I’m glad I did it. Looking forward to the final novels..Score: 4/5

A song of ice and fireI find that this book is really great from the depth and detail of the world itself to the intensity of how the houses and history make changes to the book now. Daenerys is definitely my favorite character talk about mother of dragons..Score: 5/5

More Books than NeededI’d give the first two books a five star but then it wanes to a one star for the other three. Too many characters for me to keep track of but a fun read all the same..Score: 3/5

Greatest Fantasy Series Ever Written!You will laugh and you will cry. You will feel disgusted and you will feel memorized by the beauty described. You will have nightmares and sometimes you will jump for joy and excitement. These books are a journey of mystery, love, and hate. They embody reality and life. People complain about the plot building but all the chapters have something important in them. Have you ever read any Anne Rice books? They are really good but she goes on and on about details making it hard to be into them. This is not the case in ASOIAF..Score: 5/5

AmazingGreat book series, absolutely love it. However, if you're a Game of Thrones watcher, I would wait until that's finished. I absolutely loved the show, but reading the books has diminished the show. You should wait until that's over in my opinion before you start reading this. Only complaint is the chapters on this iBook don't have names, just numbers..Score: 5/5

Books are great, this bundle is stupidThe books are phenomenal, let's just get that out of the way, but anyone with good math skills can see that this bundle makes no sense. Why buy all five books when you can buy the FOUR book bundle plus the fifth book and save like 4 dollars?.Score: 1/5

A song of ice and fireThat can't be the end. It just can't be!!!.Score: 3/5

Absolutely mind numbingI was introduced to the series by HBO’s show. I wanted to learn more about the characters and parts of the story I was sure I missed. So I bought the series and was ever so disappointed. It is a complex storyline. There are many characters and twists, much like the show. However Martin’s desire to fill pages with so much boring nonsense that ads nothing to the story makes reading a nightmare. I mean how many times is it necessay to discuss that a character “broke his or her fast" and what they ate? I am stunned that some people seriously proclaim to like his writing style. Its tedious and incredibly inane. I will stick to the HBO show and find authors to read who know how to write interesting fiction..Score: 3/5

Fantastic Books"We are are the Watchers on the Wall..." This series has become my favorite story since I discovered it only a year ago. I admit I saw the HBO show first, but it drew me to the books, and I love them both, though the books far more. Some people dislike Martin's detailed descriptions of people and settings, but personally I prefer them. It shows his care for the world he made, and helps me envision the various places and people in vivid detail. There has also been complaints about the 4th and 5th books, as some are confused by the way they tell the story. Truthfully, it's simpler than it seems. The fourth and fifth books take place simultaneously, with each book telling different characters stories. For example, Character A has his story told in Book 4, while Character B has his told in Book 5. Both A and B have stories taking place at the same time, more or less. The reason for this split was, (in Martin's own words), to have the fourth book have a more interesting ending. Else wise, the story would have dropped off in the middle of its progression, or been incredibly long and contained all the contents of both books. Book 5 also continues on after the events in 4 after awhile, and brings back some of those characters as the story continues past their ending point in 4. Hopefully I have not clouded the fact that these are great books, we'll worth reading if you're into books and fantasy. The world Martin has wrought is a rich one, and as engrossing as a story can be..Score: 5/5

ExcellentSomehow George R. R. Martin presents a plot that is well thought out, thoroughly explained, and carefully calculated but is able to bend it and shape into mystery. Reading these books, you learn much and more from them than the show. But you also open up to the world that the show didn't cover, the characters, events, and everything else. I loved everything about these five books, and though I hate to say it, I have but few clues as to where Martin is taking our beloved characters. But I cannot wait to find out. 10/10.Score: 5/5

Great Read b/c it’s a great puzzleGeorge RR Martin put together a great story, then broke it into a thousand puzzle pieces and pulled us into it all with great storytelling. This series is about power and human nature, with a medieval yet otherworldly setting. It has adult themes and it’s own history yet also has its own mythology, magic and dragons. While the HBO TV series is great, the books are better and far richer. It’s a lot of addictive reading, but you’ll be happy you read it. Note that the TV story lines have moved past book 5; readers anxiously await GRRM’s final book(s) in the series, which I plan to read even if the TV show is concluded..Score: 3/5

Reads like a screenplay...but still somehow is literarily rewarding. Each and every reader will impress their own imaginations into this kind of prose, which works well sometimes and not others. Either way, it's an infectiously gripping tale with clear rewards waiting at the end. It's also refreshingly truthful with human motivations and the often suicidal results they create. A must read for non-fantasy readers looking for fun (read: most Tolkein and Lewis types)..Score: 5/5

Does not live up to the hypeVERY surprised to see that no one else agrees. These books are far to long based on their content. They are long and slow and very boring. Martin describes basically every tree in unnecessary and excruciating detail... Honestly he doesn't even do a great job of it either, someone should really give George a thesaurus! To give him the benefit of the doubt I even continued on to see if the other books got better and they didn't. The few parts where there is action are so few and far between that I find myself drifting off unable to retain. Also as a side note, if you want to try to listen instead, it would be a great way to put yourself to sleep. WORST AUDIO BOOK READER EVER..Score: 2/5

Unreal unrelenting unbelievable unstoppableThis is the most amazing unbelievable series I have ever read . GRRM wrote the best fantasy series of our time . I started with the show and I found the books to be much more riveting . It truly draws you in and doesn't let go . Every chapter has an importance to it . Everyone says there's no many characters and that GRRM goes into to much detail about each character but it each character has some sort of importance to the story even the most minor characters . It truly makes for a great read . Highly recommend this series to anyone who watches the show and to people who hasn't seen the show I would tell to read the books first . Also with two more books to come out in the series . I can't wait to see where GRRM take his great series next . Winds of Winter can't come soon enough , and A Dream of Spring is way to far away that I hope he's still alive to finish . It would be a shame if he passes before the end of the series . And has to have people finish the series for him off his notes ..Score: 5/5
