In honor of the 2nd season being started on April 1st on HBO, I find it appropriate to review the first two books in the series(the only ones that I have read so far...more to follow when I do get them read!) I did enjoy this book, but it did take time to get into. Part of my issue also was that I had seen the first season, so most of the book was review, even if I did pick it up a few months after the season had ended. I did find the book much more detailed than the tv series, which is obvious as most books are better than the tv series/movies.
I think the characters are great and the book has you wondering what happens to them next! Martin did a wonderful job creating a world of fantasy with so much detail. I just love it, and the family ties and some history in the back of the book has me totally impressed!
I will say I don't like how the characters I like died, but that doesn't stop me from enjoying the book! It is definitely one that I will enjoy again!
