I did like the way the book moved and that the "chapters" were broken down in a non-traditional way with character names and focusing on that character for those pages. It made getting to know them a bit easier. I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series though and hopefully will do that soon.

I don't know what happened to me in this post. I mistook the title as "Hunger Games". Sorry.
Either way, A Game of Thrones is just the first book of a really intriguing series. The plot is like Frank Herbert's Dune, political machinations in a science-fiction world. But this book and all the others in this series is not for the "happy ending" people out there as you will keep on guessing which main character will be killed next. Or, if they are really dead.
The King in the North!
I've read the entire series over the last year, and am so bummed that it looks like it will be a while before "The Winds of Winter" comes out. I can't imagine how those who have been reading the series since the 90's feel! The best book so far in my opinion hands down, was "A Storm of Swords", the third in the series. My only gripe with the series is that I disagreed with Martin's decision to break up the 4th and 5th books by character, rather than chronologically. Or at least, I think he could have broken up the characters a bit better. "A Feast of Crows" left out nearly all of my character characters, while introducing a ton of new ones.
That being said, I can't wait to read the next one. Last I heard, Martin has hinted at 2014, but was not making any promises, so I'm not holding my breath. In the meantime, the series starts up again in March!
