I thought this was going to be a novel so you can imagin how surprised I was when I found out it was a Graphic Novel (take note graphic novels are not the same as a Comic Book). At first I was kinda mad, but After thinking about it I liked the idea that it was a Graphic Novel instead of a 500+ page novel. It was a fresh idea on a hot series.
While a decent read by a good author you should be warned that this is not what it apears.I bought this on the premise that it was a book and a prequil but i was mistaken. While technicly a prequil it takes place so far back in time that it is difficult to relate it to the rest of his books. Also it isnt really a book, it is more like a serious Comic Book than a novel or epic. It is HEAVILY illustrated in the manner of a comic book with text in the illustrations etc. While artisticly enjoyable it is not as enjoyable to read and i certainly would not have spent this much on what amounts to a glorified comic book. It is also an extremely short read. I finished it in a couple hours. If you are a collector or a fan of comics go for it but if your looking for a good read save your money.
Ben Avery & Mike Miller has done an excellent job adapting GRRM's short story into the graphic novel format. In my opinon the graphic novel version is more enjoyable than original written form. If you you are thinking of buying. Buy it.
