Edit: I gave up. The monotony didn't get any better. I've been told that describing minor characters/animals in detail is part and parcel of this type of fantasy genre, but I can't handle it. I'm so glad this became a show because the story itself is amazing. It's also suspect if the books will ever actually end and I'd hate to get into it and never have an ending!
On a bit of a different note, it would be nice if the end user had more control of the page formatting in Kindle. JMHO
Consequently, I haven't even started books 2-4 in the series.
I found Martin's writing style to be tedious to read. He spends too much time, in my opinion, developing his characters and their backgrounds, and as a consequence, the storyline gets subjugated to the background. As a result, I really have no idea of what the storyline is and where it is going.
I feel his writing style lends itself very well to being considered as a textual adaption of a screenplay. However, I do not feel this is a good way to engage the reader (myself) into the story. I find the story moves way too slow.
Perhaps, more to the point, I found I lost interest and stopped being curious about the who, what, where, how and why of the story.
Some readers have obviously found his writing style compelling enough to read the available volumes in the series, but, alas, I do not.
Perhaps at some future date, I may find myself motivated to start reading the series again. But for now, the 4-book set sits in a box unread.
Though an epic story with awesome characters, I won't lie and say I'm in love with the writing style. Mr. Martin is a prodigious world-builder, and for the scope and scale of Westeros and its neighboring continents, he deserves infinite praise. His obsession with death and penises, however, could be a bit much for some readers (hey, if that's your bag, go hog wild--there's enough sex and death to go around in these books). Still, you can't argue with the likability of his characters. Personally, Arya Stark is my spirit animal. Daenerys Targaryen, mother of dragons, breaker of chains, is also pretty bad-ass.
Put simply--this is worth a read. But, if the notion of reading four daunting texts is too much, watching the HBO series will give you the same pleasurable (and sometimes cringe worthy) experiences for much less ocular effort.
