Lauren Garrett"The books are a must read for any fan of show of Game of Thrones. This book set is not a quick resource to look back on relationships, kingdoms, and timelines, however. I would look elsewhere, such as wikipedia, for a quick overview of specific information or a refresher."Adam Matthews"This solution is wonderful. I love the idea of having all these novels in one compatible boxed set, it is very convenient for a person that wants to learn about the novels and series."

The action and characters are by far what stand out the most in this series. It's kind of like rooting for your favorite sports team and their star players, but except they die. I highly recommend reading the series as you watch the show, because the series is definitely more detailed than the show"Jeffrey Dunn"As a fantasy book nut who reads at least three fantasy books a month. This series would be perfect for the die hard Game of Thrones fan. If you love the TV show and want to know more about how the Game of Thrones came to be then this is a must read. If you're not a Game of Thrones fan then this won't be of much interest to you."Jacob Silva"These books are sooo much better than the HBO series. HBO has combined many characters and left out many dozens if not hundreds. The books go much more in depth in the family histories, politics, and even combat than the series."Johnny Marshall"I'm a big fan of GOT and bought this at Amazon for a good price and read all the books, which are much better than the TV series. The books give a much more in depth look into the GOT world that any fun will love."Lori Reynolds"I'd been looking for a comprehensive set to cover all my GOT cravings and this is it! I've just started on the set and can hardly wait to finish so I can start all over again."
Jesse Walsh"I can recommend reading the A Song of Ice and Fire series but I cannot recommend this set. Yeah, they are cheap but you get what you pay for with tiny print and flimsy materials even in the 'leather' bound set. Do yourself a favor and buy a good set because these are books you're going to want to keep around despite the size."Eric Austin"I wanted a fantasy novel to read. A song of Ice and Fire was terrible. The book did not whet the appetite of anyone who is into the genre. I was bummed out after learning of this weak story."Victoria Snyder"A Song of Ice and Fire 1-5 is a great sci-fi or fantasy book. It is part of an epic series and will make you want to read more."Timothy Montgomery"If you like the show game of thrones, read the books that inspired the show, they have more detail"
