A Game of Thrones 4-Book Boxed Set (A Song of Ice and Fire Series) by George R. R. Martin


George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series has become, in many ways, the gold standard for modern epic fantasy. Martin—dubbed the “American Tolkien” by Time magazine—has created a world that is as rich and vital as any piece of historical fiction, set in an age of knights and chivalry and filled with a plethora of fascinating, multidimensional characters that you love, hate to love, or love to hate as they struggle for control of a divided kingdom. It is this very vitality that has led it to be adapted as the HBO miniseries “Game of Thrones.”

This boxed set includes the following novels:

These are great books. I hate putting them down! But I would recommend spending a little extra and buying each book separately, if you're reading them on a nook. This "box set" has all four books as one file, so you have 3500+ pages in your nook book. That makes navigating with the page number slider very imprecise. And there are so many details in these books that I often wanted to go back and find another chapter, but it was just too much hassle. Might be better read in paper format, but at least having each as a separate nook book would be a big help.

Love the series! Too bad that you can currently buy 4 books for 19.97 and ebooks are running 29.99. I begin to think my nook purchase was a mistake.

Spend the extra $$$$ and buy each book seperately. I love the story, very well written but the ebook set is horrendous. You can't easily move to different books or parts of the same book. Sometimes it messes up and I can't even turn to the next proper page. Instead it jumps ahead or takes me to a completely different part of the book. Often I have to turn my nook off and back on to get it to work properly. Not pleased at all. I wish I could return it and purchase the books seperately to be honest.

I'm about halfway through this on my nook and I love it. It ranks up there with the original Dragonlance Chronicles and the Belgariad. Not read those? Add them to your list. Don't know how to say it any clearer. In depth characters, plots within subplots etc... but nicely laid out so the story doesn't trip over itself. Warning if you don't like complex characters with deep development and in depth descriptions you may not like this book. In a true sense of art though, the author keeps it moving and the pace is brisk. Hang on! In the game of thrones you either win or die.

This is not your standard fantasy fare. No damsels in distress, pointy hat wearing magicians or the like. This series is a powerhouse of strong characters being hurdled along in a world dominated by politics. Perhaps my favorite aspect of Martin's writing is his ability to allow the characters to actually grow and change as the world affects them. By the time book four rolls around, the stunningly beautiful jerk that you wish someone would behead is starting to grow on you. You see where he's coming from and you see his growth as an individual. I guess what I'm trying to say is that Martin's characters aren't just cogs put in place to turn predictable literary devices. They're vibrant and interesting people that you just can't turn away from. This is the fantasy series for people who love fantasy. This is the fantasy book for people who loathe fantasy. This is the fantasy book that breaks all the stereotypes of the genre. If I could choose one series of books to read for the rest of my life, this would be it.

I am so excited! I love this set and am finished with the second book of the series. Those books have a story that keeps you entertained for hours.

These are fantastic books, the books themselves get 5 stars but the copies in this boxed set get 1 star because they have been known to have missing pages. The copy of A Feast for Crows that came with my boxed set was missing pages 565 to 574, but other reviews that I've read have mentioned their copies missing a hundred pages or more. Luckily my local B&N took the set back without question. Even though this is cheaper skip on this boxed set and buy the books individually.

I got hooked on this because - I have to admit it - I watched the series on HBO... which by the way is INCREDIBLE!! I loved watching the show so much - I started watching the episodes ahead of time on HBOGO since I couldn't wait until the next Sunday... then I realized it was a BOOK... so I bought it on my nook - actually the series of four. And thank the gods I did that! I cannot put this series down - I devoured book one (correlates to series 1 on HBO) and I have to say - I am very VERY impressed by whoever wrote the Screenplay - it is so exacting to the book (so far) that I almost felt when reading the actual book that I was reading a script! Now that I am into book 2 I am enjoying the progress of the characters even more. I cannot wait to find out what happens to each and every one of them. Having the Chapters divided by the Character focus is brilliant - it just makes me want to keep on reading - it pains me to put the book down - and all I think about all day is when I can next start reading again... which reminds me...

I wish the books were seperate entities in my library rather than just one. A disappointing implementation. I have these in paperback and find the plot twists and character deaths surprising. I sure hope George R. R. Martin works to finish the series soon.

Let me count the ways that this is so very poor. The format is abysmal. I will NEVER buy another "series set" in nook format. In 2 yrs I have read over 200 books on my nook and this is the absolutely worst format I have come across. Can't move thru the books at all. You should be able to navigate thru each one. The cost of the books was ridiculously expensive considering other available options. But above and beyond nook or B&N issues, the books were boring. Entirely too wordy and long. I think Martin likes to hear himself think way too much. The general premise and boiled down story line isn't bad, but OMG get to the point. I rarely ever stop reading a book but was repeatedly temped to do so. I wish I had not bought the set, more because of the poor story structure, over abundance of words, and boring writing, than the nook issues. I will not be buying additional books.

I really wanted to like this book. My friends are all talking about it. I bought this set and admit I have paused (?stopped) in the middle of the first book. I am not really crazy about fantasy books to begin with. However, this author introduces about 4 to 6 new characters on most pages. Not only do we have all the characters with weird/similar sounding names but we get their entire geneology thrown in to boot. I am an avid reader and read an average of a book every day (or two) but I found this very tough to slog through... It just did not capture my interest. Wish I had saved the cash.

I've been a little disappointed with this series of books. My expectations were probably unrealistically high after reading a number of reviews rating these books as among the very best of the fantasy genre. While they are entertaining and a worthwhile read, for me, they pale in comparison to The Sword of Truth and Wheel of Time series. Just one opinion...

No lend me feature coupled with having to buy the whole series equals fail! I want to buy your content so stop making it so hard to do so.

It's been years since I read such a great series. Highly recommend, but be sure that you will have plenty of time to read because you won't be able to put these down!

I loved Games of the Thrones miniseries on TV so I bought the boxed set for my nook. It had great ratings; I love epic series so this seemed perfect. Book 1 was great, book 2 was okay then it went downhill. It became an endless, meandering tale that seems to go nowhere. The main characters all seem to be killed off just about the point you come to like them. So bad is the author killing off of main characters, as a reader I started not to want to like a character because they were going to die for sure. Good never seems to triumph and the situation continues to disintegrate into a dark depressing muck with no end in sight. This is not the Lord of the Rings, and the author does not write half as well as Tolkien. The style of the books is kind of intriguing at first but by book 3 it is tedious. If you want to read this series buy it 1 book at a time and see if it to your liking. Remember not all the books are on the NY Times best seller list, just something the author has done.

The storyline is fantastic! Unfortunately, the ebook version is just pathetic. Skips pages, repeats pages...just aggravating to constantly have to skip to the next page because the Nook version jumps to a random past page instead of flowing as it should. Storyline content is missed. Frustrating to say the least.

Intrigue and scheming but gets boring , too much description and explanation, i could hardly finish the fourth book. I just hate not knowing
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
The 1st book is the best book by far then the second is not as good, by the 3rd I was waiting for some big entertaining part but it never came and book 4 almost isn't part of the series. If you like stories to wrap up or see a plot point comclude then there isn't much good in buying these. The new book is the same.

I'm still on book one, but so far it has a lot going on and is great to read. The humor in it is awesome. I do recommend and am looking forward to finishing the series.

I just finished the free sample and was totally drawn in. I am a little confused as to why the ebooks are more expensive than the paper version?

Stop after second book and write your own ending . The series falls to pieces after that

Most expensive book purchase I have made, but it was worth every dime. If you want a simple story with only a hand full of characters and a couple of dimensions to the plot; these books are not for you. But if you want tales which live in your head after reading and make you yearn for more after reading; then these books are a must read. The HBO Game of Thrones Mini-Series follows the stories well and bring plausible faces to the characters, but there is more to the stories which you get from the books. After finishing the nearly 3600 pages of the 4 book series, I had to immediately purchase Book 5 & will do the same when Book 6 is released. The plots are complex, the characters are many, and the stories are full of unexpected twists which yank at your emotions. But full enjoyment and satisfaction is your reward. My son read the books in hard cover form; I read them via my Nook. Comparing our experiences, the eReader is the way to go as it helps to refer frequently to the maps which are easy to retrieve via the eReader plus there are many 'medieval' type words which the eReader dictionary quickly clarifies for you. Truly a can't miss reading opportunity!
