Sep 16, Rocio Meneses Buleje rated it it was amazing. Volver a Winterfell de la mano de un comic se siente muy bien. Feb 11, Christopher Gibson rated it it was ok Shelves: Nice artwork. However, if you're not a fan of the story already you will not really know what is going on. The scenes jump without explaining where you are in the world and expects you to know who the characters are early on.
I have the next three issues and hope my opinion is changed!

It is about a bunch of different families in seven kingdoms. There is one king that rules the seven kingdoms known as Robert Baratheon. There is the Stark family who rules under the king and they are in charge of the city of Winterfell. Then there are much more families that rule different cities. There are four main families in this book. There are the Lannisters, Baratheons, Starks, and the Targereyons. The Starks and the Lannisters hate each This book is based on the time of the medieval ages.
The Starks and the Lannisters hate eachother very much. The king comes and visits Eddard stark aka Ned and asks him to be his right hand. The king is also married to Cersei Lannister witch puts ned in a tough choice because he does not want to deal with her family.
The Starks have a baster child by the name of Jon. He wants to join a very elite force of people who protect the kingdoms, known as the Nights Watch. He ends up going with his uncle Benjen Stark.
There is a little boy who is named Brandon but they call him bran. He is also a Stark and he is a very gifted climber and has climbed the tallest towers in all of winterfell and he is only seven! The Starks also have four other children two girls and two more boys.
The oldest girl is name Sansa and she is twelve then there is Arya who is nine. The two other boys are Robb who is the oldest of all the other children then there is Rodick who is the youngest of all the children.
Sansa is chosen to be married to prince Jofrey, he is fourteen years of age. After Robert and Ned talk over the marriage arrangement they head to kings landing with Sansa and Arya. Kings Landing is in the south so it is warm most of the time. It also use to be home of the Targereyons, who ruled most of the years with their dragons they had.
But all of the dragon have gone extinct so Robert decided to fight the Targereyons for the throne which ruled all the seven kingdoms. It was called the iron throne There are only two targereyons left in the world and they are hidden and kept protected by the people who want them to come back into rule. There is a boy who calls himself the dragon but his actual name is Aerys.
Then there is his younger sister Danerys, but she goes by Danny. Then one day she finds out that her brother has sold her to be married to the Dothraki. The Dothraki are a savage tribe of people. Aerys sold Danny sold her to them to marry so their king would give him an army to command and help him win the crown.
I would recommend this book to almost anyone, but not the people who do not enjoy the types of book that are set in this time period. There is one thing that might confuse people in the book. The book does not have chapters so to say, the chapters are set on certain people and what they do. And they jump from people to people. So it might be easy to get lost in the reading but it helps the whole story come together.
It is a really well written book and i can not wait to read the rest of the series. This fantasy novel about political intrigues is fascinating. Written from the point-of-view of multiple characters, this book is engaging, suspenseful, and best of all, easy to relate to, for most, if not all, of the characters are flawed but likable.
The story is told mainly from the perspective of the Starks, who commanded the northern territories of the kingdom, and the trials and struggles they went through in a brutal game of thrones. To add to the complications of human politics, something This fantasy novel about political intrigues is fascinating. To add to the complications of human politics, something sinister is also lurking beyond the northern border There are plenty of reasons for me to like this book.
As I've mentioned, the characters are easy to relate to.
Even the villains seem human, and it is not too difficult to understand their actions. In addition to that, the plot is gripping and full of suspense. With so many characters, so many houses with different aims and agendas, you'll just have to keep on turning those pages. The amount of details in the story is also captivating, although some might find it a little too much.
However, I love those details; they make a compelling world, rich in history and tradition. The only complaint that I have is the long lulls before you can get back to the same character again. Most of the time, you race along with one character for one chapter, waiting in suspense to see what happens, and when the chapter ends, it might take quite a while to get back to that same character. I suppose it cannot be helped, for this is also the same trait that made this book such a delightful read, but yes, it did bother me at times.
Definitely recommended; I am now anxious to read the next book! May 08, Killian rated it liked it Shelves: Jez, people It says "Comic Book" in the title, people, come on I've read the book twice and seen the first season of the show which follows the book pretty precisely.

So far, it's following pretty well, but this first issue is just the introduction to the Starks and Dany.
I did like how they handled the history of Dany and her family in panel form. It's a lot of information that doesn't make a ton of sense before you know the whole story, but the images were evocative enough to make the reading of it more pleasurable than in the book.
Not a big fan of the art style And I can already see a problem brewing because I can't tell the difference between the characters especially in the Stark chapter just by looking at them. I need them to use names when addressing each other because it looks like copypasta faces with slightly different hair. Mar 03, Holly rated it it was amazing.
I really, really enjoyed George R. Martin's style of writing. This book was fantastically written, and the amount of detail included about the world and the history of the world was incredible, and it really helped in immersing yourself in the book. His detail around characters is also great, there's so much depth to the characters, and many of them have really interesting backgrounds. I also liked the style the book was written in - each character having different chapters.
A great book, and I really, really enjoyed George R. A great book, and the storyline is really strong, you get so caught up in the Stark vs Lannister politics, and the mystery around the white walkers. Obviously the ending where Ned Stark is beheaded is tragically sad, but I still think it worked well - you didn't expect it, and then there are just the Stark children left behind to avenge his death and take over the Iron Throne.
Absolutely loved it. The only issue for me is that the book is written in such detail that it took a while to read, and a lot of concentration was involved when reading the book. I read the book after watching the TV show, and I will probably just continue to watch the TV show because that too is fantastic. If you want more of Game of Thrones than the TV show, then the book is absolutely brilliant, and I'd recommend it to anyone. So I read the book a couple of years ago, and I am listening to it now on CD with my husband.
I think that it is very well written. It catches my attention and I do become immersed in the world, however, it is difficult to stay immersed for a long period of time. I am not sure if it's because of the many different plot lines or if it is because there are some slower parts to the book where there is very little action going on. It almost reads more like a narrative.
This could be a lead in to mor So I read the book a couple of years ago, and I am listening to it now on CD with my husband. This could be a lead in to more action in his later books, but it does cause the book to be considerably slow at times.
It is much easier listening to it than reading it because when I read it I usually skip ahead in search of more action. I know these books are popular because of the HBO series, but I would warn people that watching it is different than reading it. The series does follow the books fairly well as far as I can tell, so that is good.
Mar 11, Nicole rated it really liked it Shelves: I got sucked in - quickly. The fellow gave me this book and has been begging, literally, for me to read it. I'd pick it up and put it down. And wow. And how. Multitude of characters, indeed, each with their own chapters that give a unique point of view t I got sucked in - quickly.
Multitude of characters, indeed, each with their own chapters that give a unique point of view to the rapidly escalating story.
When you play the game of thrones, that evil witch of a queen tells us, you win or you die. Or you win and you still die. And it's not all knights and valor either, it's - awesome. That's all. Martin writes an awesome story that grips the reader from beginning to end. I can't wait to start the second book. May 15, Belinda Missen rated it liked it. Right, so. I'm a casual watcher of the TV series. And by casual, I mean I don't remember a lot of names, and am sure by the time I remember them, they'll be dead anyway.
I bought the book series for my Dad for Christmas, and he's torn through them, and loved them. I'm still not entirely convinced that I want to read the books, but figured the comics would be a good place to start.
The illustrations are They look more like something out of a s cartoon than 'comic book' illustrat Right, so. They look more like something out of a s cartoon than 'comic book' illustrations. Not my thing entirely, but I find good illustrations really enhance my enjoyment of the comic book world. As for the story.
Yeah, it's Game of Thrones. I'm finding there are small tidbits of information that I'm gleaning from the comic, though, which is helping with my understanding of the show. I'll likely continue to read these for that simple reason.
Mar 16, Sean Welch rated it it was amazing. By far the best book of the series. Like "Dune", a classic book with many sequels, "Game of Thrones" can stand on its own with out the additional episodes. If taken alone it's a tragedy with an ambiguous ending that leaves the rest to your own imagination. Maybe that's where great books should take us, to the end of the book and then on to another unrelated book. Don't get confused. Readers also enjoyed. About Daniel Abraham.

Dec 29, Sandra Girard-Demontigny rated it it was ok Shelves: I less enjoyed the reading of this comic than the previous ones.
To my taste, there wasn't enough action. Nothing obvious happened and I thought there was a lot of length. That's why it took me so long to read it. I still look forward to finishing this series with the next comic.
