Praise for George R. R. Martin and A Song of Ice and Fire
“The only fantasy series I’d put on a level with J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings . . . It’s a fantasy series for hip, smart people, even those who don’t read fantasy.”—Chicago Tribune
“Martin amply fulfills the first volume’s promise and continues what seems destined to be one of the best fantasy series ever written.”—The Denver Post, on A Clash of Kings
“Martin has produced—is producing, since the series isn’t over—the great fantasy epic of our era. It’s an epic for a more profane, more jaded, more ambivalent age than the one Tolkien lived in.”—Lev Grossman, Time
“Addictive . . . George R. R. Martin has created the unlikely genre of the realpolitik fantasy novel.”—Rolling Stone, on A Feast for Crows
“Epic fantasy as it should be written: passionate, compelling, convincingly detailed and thoroughly imagined.”—The Washington Post, on A Dance with Dragons
“I always expect the best from George R. R. Martin, and he always delivers.”—Robert Jordan

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!
My only concern about the books are the spine. A bad spine can completely ruin a book for me, and the bending and cracking sounds I sometimes get from these books really concerns me. The first book has taken quite a beating from my purse here lately and its held up pretty well, though.
All in all, if you enjoy reading Game of Thrones, then you must have this collection. Its awesome!
I have heard complaints that the books have too many characters. There are about 25 important ones, and I think most readers will find them easy to remember. They are called point-of-view characters because each of them has many chapters in the books narrated from his or her point-of-view. As for the multitude of minor characters, you can either, as I did most of the time, read on without recalling their place in the
narrative, or, alternatively, you can consult the book's appendix or a web site for enlightenment.
There will be two more novels in the series and no date has been set for the publication of the next one, book six. In the meantime I am left
wondering about the fate of a dozen characters I deeply care about. This must really stink for those who have been waiting since 2011 when book five was published. The series was originally planned as a trilogy but along the way the successful TV series based on the books blossomed and the trilogy expanded to a planned septology. Considering what seems to me to be the expanded use of filler in the latter books ( e.g., unneeded background history, identification of every food item served at every feast, and descriptions of the coats of arms of numerous insignificant knights who attend feasts or councils ) I can't help wondering whether Martin is being driven by financial considerations to the determent of his narrative and believe future generations will read and enjoy A Song of Ice and Fire in an abridged version. But I am grateful to have the books as they are.
The only downfall is due to them being long books, the paper is quite thin and you can see the words on the next page through each page. It isn't overly distracting however. I did see another post about missing pages and will update if that happens to me.
