Editorial Reviews

Review

'Mr. Martin is a literary dervish, bursting with the wild vision of the very best tale tellers. And Tyrion is his grandest creation' New York Times 'I love Tyrion Lannister. He's a baller and a drinker but he's also dry, cynical, jaded. An atheist and an aesthete. I'm telling you about him because I think you will love him too, and I want to not be the only person in my social circle who has a poster of him on the wall in their kitchen' Caitlin Moran Praise for A Song of Ice and Fire: '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 --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

About the Author

George R. R. Martin is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of many novels, including the acclaimed series A Song of Ice and Fire—A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, A Storm of Swords, A Feast for Crows, and A Dance with Dragons—as well as Tuf Voyaging, Fevre Dream, The Armageddon Rag, Dying of the Light, Windhaven (with Lisa Tuttle), and Dreamsongs Volumes I and II. He is also the creator of The Lands of Ice and Fire, a collection of maps from A Song of Ice and Fire featuring original artwork from illustrator and cartographer Jonathan Roberts. As a writer-producer, Martin has worked on The Twilight Zone, Beauty and the Beast, and various feature films and pilots that were never made. He lives with the lovely Parris in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
 
Jonty Clark has been a freelance illustrator since 1997—mainly for editorial, but also for books, museums, and advertising. His clients include BBC History, BBC Music and BBC Countryfile Magazines, Radio Times, The Times, Financial Times, Telegraph, Natural History Museum, and Kumala Wines.

More About the Author

George R.R. Martin sold his first story in 1971 and has been writing professionally since then. He spent ten years in Hollywood as a writer-producer, working on The Twilight Zone, Beauty and the Beast, and various feature films and television pilots that were never made. In the mid '90s he returned to prose, his first love, and began work on his epic fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire. He has been in the Seven Kingdoms ever since. Whenever he's allowed to leave, he returns to Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he lives with the lovely Parris, and two cats named Augustus and Caligula, who think they run the place.

I wasted my money on something I could have highlighted in the books.
robin landry
Somewhat disappointing...I had hoped there would be some new quotations, not just the one's I've read in the books.
Brian W. Maltby
Its just a bunch of "quotes" that I've already read in the other Game of Thrones books.

I read this entire book. Cover to cover in less than 15 minutes. Love Tyrion. Love the series, but truly I could have googled the content in this book for free. So disappointed.

It took me 7 minutes to get through this $7 book. If Dance with Dragons were priced at the same rate, it would cost $1,000.

I'm disappointed that this even exists. It offers no new content, just a few excerpts you could blast through in less than 5 minutes. The cover and pictures are not even that nice. What I find particularly funny is that this is the "Wit and Wisdom of Tyrion Lannister" through the first five books of what is a seven-book series. So we can all look forward to the *complete* Wit and Wisdom of Tyrion in, I suppose, 20 years.

I received this as a gift from a well intentioned relative, who I think once heard me talking about the ASoIaF books. I therefore feel guilty for having indirectly contributed to the quagmire of largesse and creative bankruptcy GRRM is currently floundering in.
I can't fathom any reason for this "book" to exist aside from filling in the content gap since it's now obvious it will be years until the next actual book is released. Also, stripped of context these quotes reveal Tyrion as not being particularly witty after all.
On the plus side, come Christmas I can re-gift this to a coworker I don't really like so maybe some good will come of it after all.

Way too short. I wasted my money on something I could have highlighted in the books. A fool and his money is soon parted. So true...so true

Too short and no new material. Takes less than 6 minutes to read. What's next a book of quotes from the Kingslayer?

When this was first announced, I thought it was a joke. Onion satire style thing. But oh no. Sadly, this is very real, and perhaps the most disgraceful, pathetic, and farcical cash grabs of our era. Who would buy this book? Who would display this on their coffee table? Who could read this thing and not feel ripped off, not feel like their intelligence was just hugely insulted? I know not, as words are wind, and I know not where whores go. I predict the majority of sales here will be from clueless people buying a trinket for a family member or friend because they know they are fans (or once fans) of the books or the HBO series. That's what happened to me anyway... but maybe my buddy hates me and is trying to let me know it.

These are new lows for an author who knows no shame. Martin writes on his blog, unapologetically, how he fleeces his fan base and is literally rolling in dump trucks of money. But hey, he's bought a new movie theater in Santa Fe. You can buy the Wit and Wisdom of Tyrion Lannister at the concession stand for 200% beyond MSRP and maybe, if you're lucky, you'll get one of the few signed copies in the lot.
