A Song of Ice and Fire - A Game of Thrones game of thrones books a dance with dragons

A Song of Ice and Fire - A Game of Thrones: The Complete Boxset of 7 Books Paperback – 5 January 2016

Colossal, staggering… Martin captures all the intoxicating complexity of the Wars of the Roses or Imperial Rome’SFX‘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.George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series has set the benchmark for contemporary epic fantasy. Labelled byTime magazine as one of the top 100 most influential people in the world, Martin has conjured a world as complex and vibrant as that of J.R.R.Tolkien, populated by a huge cast of fascinating, complex characters, and boasting a history that stretches back twelve thousand years. Three great storylines weave through the books, charting the civil war for control of the Seven Kingdoms; the defence of the towering Wall of ice in the uttermost north against the unearthly threat of the Others; and across the Narrow Sea the rise to power of Daenerys Targaryen and the last live dragons in the world. Content: well it is GRRM,so if you are a fan of fantasy fiction,perhaps only lord of the rings by tolkien might be surpassing this masterpiece.the style of writing can be boring for some people who are not used to reading,but for me personally the book has been quite engaging,because it tells about the world from the perspective of different characters at different instances of time and from what i gather,there's no one protagonist or antagonist to the story,which is sort of great because this is what people are like in real. our personalities are neither white nor black,they are grey and the characterization in the book reinforces that. The delivery was on time. The box was properly packed. Everything was in mint condition whether it be the books or the box. I also got the map of westeros and the free cities, it is of good quality and the paper is thick. The books are all clean and fresh. The contents is really good. I would recommend you to watch the show also while reading the books

A lot of people on Amazon are saying….

The only downside I can say is that upon reaching A Feast for Crows (imo the worst of the 5 books) I began to see the flaws of the show, and by the end of A Dance with Dragons Se5-7 became unwatchable to me.TV series first and gotten an idea of characters and places first.
Like most anything else, it's either your type of thing or it's not, but you cannot say that it's poorly written.
I've never read/watched anything like GoT before, genre-wise. But I found the whole thing so interesting and compelling, the way some of them speak, the vocabulary, is all quite formal and proper! Especially Tyrion (of course that's in part down to Peter Dinklage and his excellent acting). Personally, I feel the in-book text/font/maps are slightly crisper and the pages of better quality in the HBO-Inspired Editions. Saying that, the cover art for this box set is amazing and is consistent with a majority of his other works, so I prefer these over the imagery of the HBO-Inspired Editions but that is just my personal preference, the in-book text/font/maps in this set are totally fine and readable for me. he books are well written and are justified in their acclaim. Having watched the show first it hard not to read parts of the book in their voices and not picture the world brought to screen by HBO.
Would recommend this purchase for anyone who enjoys the show and anyone who like a well written book.  Just 2000 for such amazing set.. And I received it the fastest even during the sale time when courier services are very busy.. JUST 2 DAYS!!!Even though i am in a town not a city...Packaging was great and safe... Coming to the product.. I haven't read all of them till now but the first one was quite amazing.. Waiting to read the whole series... And the map.. Just wow! Looks like the treasure maps we see in movies... It looks ancient.. And one great thing too... Thanks for giving 6 bookmarks with it!!!Bookmarks are really useful !  The quality of the hardbound is good and to get it in a boxed set was very good as it elongates their life. Kudos to Amazon for genuine books and swift service. For book lovers, it is actually way more engaging and has more depth when compared to the TV show. It is a combo of those books which must be a part of your library if you have one. The paper quality is thick and creamy. The font is neither too small nor too big. The binding of the books look reliable and it comes with an elaborate map of Westeros which looks so old (in a good way lol). Then of course there's this to-die-for smell of new books. Look no more, you've found the exact epitome of perfection. The books are great but the product is a box set and from a collectors view the box matters which was in total pieces when I received the product. So Amazon needs to keep an eye on that while selling the collectable products. Because box does matter. I have ordered this boxed set and instead the delivered me a competitive exam book..dont buy..
