Book 1 of Game of Thrones. To start with. The book is well written with strong character voices and an in-depth plot structure. This book is for mature audiences and I would recommend that due to numerous adult themes. All that said I just did not enjoy this one. I am not huge of castle politics and this book is all about castle intrigue. That doesn’t mean there were no good parts. Just all in all I did not like it because I would not consider myself part of the demographic for this book. At this point I have no plans on moving further into this series. However, the book is well done and if you are in that demographic I feel you would enjoy this.
