So I just finished the fourth book in this series. Without a doubt, I think it is the greatest piece of Fantasy out there right now. I would describe it as the Lord of the Rings of our time and I think in the future people will regard George R.R. Martin with the same reverence that people have today for Tolkien. The storylines are wonderfully in depth and varied, the characters three dimensional and unique down to the day players, each speaking with their own distinct voice. A Song of Ice and Fire has to be some of the greatest books I have ever read.
Pick this up. You will not regret it.
Has anybody else out there read these books? Who's your favorite character? Who do you love to hate? Why?
