A Game of Thrones Summary

A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 1) by George R.R. Martin

Voyager Classics timeless masterworks of science fiction and fantasy.

A beautiful clothbound edition of the internationally acclaimed A Game of Thrones the first volume in the greatest epic work of the modern age.

Summers span decades. Winter can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne has begun.

It will stretch from the south, where heat breeds plot, lust and intrigues; to the vast frozen north, where a 700-foot wall of ice protects the kingdom from the dark forces that lie beyond.

As Warden of the North, Lord Eddard Stark counts it a curse when King Robert bestows on him the office of the Hand. His honour weighs him down at court where a true man does what he will, not what he mustand a dead enemy is a thing of beauty.

The old gods have no power in the south, Starks family is split and there is treachery at court. Worse, a vengeance-mad boy has grown to maturity in exile in the Free Cities beyond the sea. Heir of the mad Dragon King deposed by Robert, he claims the Iron Throne.

In the game of thrones, you win or you die.

A Game of Thrones Reviews

After five volumes Martin is, if anything, a better writer than when he started. If you're watching A Game of Thrones on HBO, you're foregoing the great pleasure of Martin's deft prose
Time Magazine

'A Game of Thrones has captured the imaginations of millions for the same reason the archetypal dramas of Homer, Sophocles or Shakespeare have lasted for millennia. They show us the conflict between self-sacrifice and self-interest, between the human spirit and the human ego, between good and evil. And when we look up from the page we recognise those same conflicts in the world around us and in ourselves'
The Guardian

It is hard to accept that something that enormous and that popular is as good as people tell you it is
Independent

A Game of Thrones grabs hold and wont let go. Its brilliant.
Robert Jordan

Colossal, staggering Martin captures all the intoxicating complexity of the Wars of the Roses or Imperial Rome in his imaginary world one of the greats of fantasy literature.
SFX

Fantasy literature has never shied away from grandeur, but the sheer-mind-boggling scope of this epic has sent other fantasy writers away shaking their heads Its ambition: to construct the Twelve Caesars of fantasy fiction, with characters so venomous they could eat the Borgias.
Guardian

Such a splendid tale. I couldnt stop till Id finished and it was dawn.
Anne McCaffrey
