I’m actually pretty well into this fabulous book by George R.R. Martin. Recommended by my favorite bookish boy at our local B&N bookstore, I was very hesitant at the beginning, but within minutes it had me on the a fantasy trip that I never wanted to put away.
Mr. Martin is a genius of fantasy writers. I love his descriptions of the world he creates, the creatures, the beings, and also (for an interior designer and artist like I am) his wonderful descriptions of clothing, architecture and interiors.
This is a book not to be missed. Martin is absolutely the pinnicale of writers in this genre. And, the added bonus is that this is only the first in this “Thrones” series.
One word of caution, here…. these books are fat, big volumes (thank God!!) and are not for those who want a quick read. I personally love that about them. :] Please do yourself a favor and try a sample on your Kindle!
