    From the imagination of the “American Tolkien” comes this stunning epic-fantasy series that will transport the readers to a different world. These books offer chivalry, honour, betrayal, loyalty, kinship, along with a plethora of distinct characters, which will blow any fantasy lover’s mind and leave him asking for more.

    Summary Of The Book

    This boxed set is a collection of the first four books of A Song of Ice and Fire series by the best-selling American author George R. R. Martin, whose works and writing are often compared to those of J. R. R. Tolkien - who is considered to be one of the finest of fantasy authors in the literary world.

    The series is set in the fictional continents of Westeros and Essos. Initially, the author introduces the readers to human characters. However, as the story develops, the readers are introduced to the 'Others'- a race of supernatural beings residing beyond the ice wall to the North, and dragons that breathe fire and inhabit the East. The series revolves around three major story lines, which ultimately become interwoven: the first is the war for control of Westeros between families, the second is the perceived danger from the menacing and calculating others, and the return of the exiled princess Daenerys Targaryen with her dragons to claim her rights to the throne of Westeros as the heir and daughter of a king who was murdered 15 years ago in a civil war.

    In the first book of the series, A Game of Thrones, we are introduced to a world of absurdities and darkness. In this world, sinister forces co-exist with noble hearts, and it is filled with danger and threats. As summers linger for ages and winters last forever, the land of Westeros falls into an imbalance of power and importance. As trouble brews in the North, the continent gets into a state of civil war.

    The second book, A Clash of Kings, begins right where A Game of Thrones left off. While the seven families of the continent battle for the throne, few men who guard “The Wall” in the North, called the Night’s Watch, set out on a mission to the land of the Others for investigation and enquiry. Meanwhile, the ambitious Daenerys Targaryen is all set to make a comeback.

    In A Storm of Swords, the initial war between the families continue. However, a few more internal wars have broken out. The common people are severely affected. The scenario has somewhat progressed as the Night’s Watch leads on and the raging princess looks to gather forces to win her personal war.

    In the final book of the collection, A Feast For Crows, the war has lead to several crucial developments in the lives of the characters, and it also has a collective impact on each one of them. The plot gets more complex, but in an interesting way.

    The books are written in a rather interesting fashion. Instead of picking a protagonist to tell the story in the form of a singular narrative, the author employs several narratives and gives the readers a range of perspectives on the story, which are insightful.

    Unlike other fantasy series that focus mainly on magic and the supernatural forces, this one focuses instead on political intrigue, battles, and complex questions of the branding of characters as good and evil, for no character in his books are either black or white. Martin’s books are highlighted by violence, crumbling of morality, and sexuality - which have been lauded by the critics. He has also depicted feminism and dabbled with religion in these series.

    The series came out in 1991. By 1996, Martin decided that he wanted to extend the trilogy. This 4-part book collection, which came out on March 22, 2011, has met with tremendous reviews, both popular and critical. While Denver Post called it the series of the decade, Publishers Weekly was all praises for the quality storytelling, real-to-life characters, and intriguing plot.

    The series has been reprinted in more than 40 translations, USA Today reported. By 2011, according to Wall Street Journal the book had sold 6 million copies by May, while according to USA Today the sales had reached up to a booming 12 million copies by December.

    The Home Box Office, commonly known as HBO, began to air a series based on these books in 2007. It went on to receive 13 Emmy Award nominations after the first series, including those for Outstanding Supporting Actor and Outstanding Drama. A second season came out in April 2012.

    Boardgames, art works, and fantasy flight games have all been inspired by this popular series. A monthly comic of the series by Dynamite Entertainment came out in 2011.

    Bad Quality of Books

    Firstly, I would like to point out that I have not read the books and I am not talking about the story of the books. I am only talking about the quality of the books here.

    The worst part about the books was the paper quality. It feels cheap! The description of the books should mention clearly if the books are Mass Market production (like this one) or high quality paperbacks.

    I would suggest not to buy this set of books because, the quality of the paper just isn't that great and if you are b...

    Amazing series!

    I heard of the Game of thrones series through the internet and was interested in watching the TV series. So I downloaded it and it was just there, sitting in my hard drive. After debating whether or not I should buy the book or watch it first, I decided to watch it and then think of buying the books.

    After watching it, my friend sent me this series that she bought from flipkart and I started reading it, and it's really good. The boxed set is a good deal, price wise, but the 'box' itself is ...

    Great Buy if looking for Mass Paperback

    Please note that the book is a Mass Paperback and not Paperback quality.

    The quality is not as great in a Mass paperback as the books you buy in bookstores.

    But just because its a mass paperback the cost is very very less for the first 4 books which is an added advantage.

    Flipkart's service was brilliant as usual but the quality of paper is what didnt impress me.

    If u want high quality books , look elsewhere.

    If u are looking at cheap price and will throw away the book after...

    Not good quality of books this time

    I ordered this set 10 days ago and it said "Imported edition" and will arrive in 8 business days. The delivery arrived in time, but for the first time, I was not impressed at all with quality of books. The font, quality of pages is too bad and it does't look like an imported edition at all from any angle.

    This series is amazing, but the quality of books certainly is going to hamper my reading.

    Excellent Novel - Dimensions(physical) of the Book could have been bigger

    This is an excellent novel. Characters are very memorable and have a great deal of depth. There are no absolute heroes or absolute villains. unlike typical fantasy novels where its all about Black and White, the characters in this novel are Grey. Every character has both good and bad attributes, which makes it pretty difficult to side with any one and at the same time love everyone.

    But the books are too small in dimensions, which makes it a bit difficult to hold it and read it without caus...

    Not really worth it

    If you are a GRR fan, you'd probably jump on this book set. But I'd advise it. Instead hold on a while longer and go for a complete set with two more books yet to be published.

    Other than that, as a product, its pretty good. The print is pretty awesome, and Flipkart gives you a few bookmarks to help you along with your reading. Definitely value for money.

    Good value

    Print quality of the first book, A Game of Thrones is OK. The rest of the books have much better quality. The box it self is not very good but getting 4 books from A Song of Ice and Fire for this price is worth it.

    As usual excellent delivery by Flipkart, before time and in good condition.
