Lately I've been reading the epic George RR Martin saga, A Song of Ice and Fire. These books are HUGE! They are about a civil war that takes place in a quasi-medival land called Westeros. Each book is told from several points of view, rather than focusing on one character. There are four books currently published, but there's a fifth one coming "sometime" (I put that in quotes because no one, not even George R.R. Martin himself, knows when it will be finished. Here's hoping he doesn't suffer the same fate as Robert Jordan). The four books currently available are:
A Game of Thrones
A Clash of Kings
A Storm of Swords
A Feast for Crows--have yet to read this one
My favorite characters in the series are: Queen Cersei, (actually, I love to hate her. She is chillingly evil), Arya Stark (do not mess with this little girl. Not unless you want her to stick you with her sword's pointy end
), Sansa Stark (poor thing. Martin just loves to give this girl grief), and Tyrion Lannister (an imp that you just can't help but like).
A word of warning to anyone who might read these books: they are VERY violent (poor Sansa is raped twice!) and vulgar. If you can't handle graphic violence and sexuality, I advise you to not read them.
So is anyone else into these books?
