George R. R. Martin – A Dance with Dragons

Well I’ve finally made it to the end of this behemoth of a book! If I’d bought it differently, it would actually have been two books, but my set had it all in one, so it was a long hard slog to make it to the end!

Rather than start from the middle where I gave up last time, I decided...

Review: George R. R. Martin – A Game of Thrones

Before I started this book, I had watched the first 4 or 5 episodes of the first TV series based on this book, so I thought I knew what was coming. Oh, how wrong I was.

There are many, many characters in this book, and my dad had warned me that I may have trouble keeping up with who...
