Of course they weren't wrong.
What George R.R. Martin has done here defies genre, period. It doesn't matter if you're like me and don't care for this sub-genre of fantasy... it doesn't matter if your like my spouse, and don't like fantasy at all. If you enjoy brilliant, incredibly-developed, thought-provoking stories... those with a strongly developed cast of characters who blissfully lack being "good vs. evil" and instead all display their shades of grey, good traits, evil traits, unique traits, all sorts of traits... then this book is for you. Buy it. Open it up. Start reading. You won't regret it.
In terms of adapting the story to a graphic novel format I think Daniel Abraham has done well. He hits all the major points of the plot and much of the dialogue used is directly from the book. I've heard quite a few complaints about the drawing. Granted, a few of the characters could have stood to have more defining features to distinguish between them more easily. However, while not exactly inspired the drawing was hardly detrimental to the overall quality of the book. But I've always been one to appreciate the quality of the writing and the story over the quality of the art - not everyone may share my opinion on that.
I purchased this book in the Kindle format for my 7" Kindle Fire HD. As far as the volume's content on the Kindle Fire - I was hesitant to abandon the volumes in print worried that the Kindle Fire might provide a more difficult viewing experience. That hasn't turned out the be the case. The novel is easy to read, you can scan in to specific boxes, and the colors are vibrant.
The rating is less than 5 stars because I also have the audible narration. I read this through my Kindle. I sometimes listened to the Audible narration, other times read the text, and sometimes even both together.
The narrator of the audible release uses a lot of voice variation to indicate the different characters and does a good job of keeping it consistent. If my interpretation is correct, he's also is highly productive. To narrate this entire book in one day is an impressive accomplishment. Unfortunately, that day was "Talk Like a Pirate" day.
After one book, I'm hooked. Ready for book two and beyond!
