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.
However, the reviews scared me off. I was afraid the books would be "too small" to read, or "pages would be missing", or even have a "funny smell" to them. All these things I've read in previous reviews. All of which, for my taste at least, has not been a problem. I was under the impression it would be the "size of a pocket bible" and the pages were so thin u could see through them like bible paper. Not the case for me.
The set arrived 4 days early and to my surprise they were really heavy, good quality, smaller books. Not nearly as small as my pocket bible. All of my pages are here (from what I can tell) and although I doubt the quality of the "leather" it still feel great in hand and is just stunning to look at. Also the lettering is perfect for reading, sure it's not your normal size but it is still a big enough size that I don't even need my glasses to read it. The colors are gorgeous and it looks great on my book shelf.
I've included pictures to show its beauty and also compare the size to an actual pocket bible and its paper.
If your a Game Of Thrones fan like I am and u like collectibles this is a product for you. I hope the pictures and this review can help someone take these reviews just as a mere opinion and make the decision for themselves.
Now let me start reading!
However, my issue is with the books themselves. When I got to the second book I noticed that approximately 70 pages are missing. I can't tell if this is the case for the rest of the books, but I'm certainly dissatisfied with the product.
The manufacturing is garbage.
The first book I opened had about 15 unattached pages, because the binding was so terrible.
I stashed those pages and thought to myself, I should reglue that at some point...
Then I went about my life.
I'm really glad I've already read these books, because I had the book in my back seat while driving one day, and decided I should put the windows down. About 20 more pages flew out, and I lost 5 or so out the window.
Pay a few bucks more and get a QUALITY set of these books.
I love how this story has alternating points of view, I think it helps get into the mind of the main characters. I am eager to read the rest of the series. This was a really well done series. Its not over the top on the sex and violence like I was thinking. All though some specific scenes with the Dothraki were a bit much lol, but still such an amazing read. I highly recommend this book to anyone, even more so if you watched and loved the TV show.
