|A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1) |
by George R.R. Martin
Well, what can I say? The entire series so far - Misogynist, brutal, gratuitous, and BRILLIANT. Fantastic (in all senses of the word) and wonderful. Riveting, spell binding, realistic - we all know these characters, and part of them are in all of us. Fast paced plot, too many people (keep up!)action, drama and unreliable narrators.
Read it - all of this is true - don't let the too many characters or the brutality or the misogyny put you off - this is brilliant writing.
