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 out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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 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?

What is this. I already own all of the books (so I obviously love the series), so why did I just pay for a quote book. If I had a burning desire to find out all the things that Tyrion says, I would just google it. Less than 60 seconds after buying this, I was desperately looking for a way to return it. Setting my money on fire would have been more enjoyable. If this book must be bought, it has to be the print version for the art. The kindle version is in one word: garbage.
