‘Of those who work in the grand epic fantasy tradition, Martin is by far the best’
‘Colossal, staggering… Martin captures all the intoxicating complexity of the Wars of the Roses or Imperial Rome’
‘The sheer-mind-boggling scope of this epic has sent other fantasy writers away shaking their heads… Its ambition: to construct the Twelve Caesars of fantasy fiction, with characters so venomous they could eat the Borgias.’

A Song of Ice and Fire, 7 Volumes
George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series has set the benchmark for contemporary epic fantasy. Labelled by Time magazine as one of the top 100 most influential people in the world, Martin has conjured a world as complex and vibrant as that of J.R.R. Tolkien, populated by a huge cast of fascinating, complex characters, and boasting a history that stretches back twelve thousand years.
Three great storylines weave through the books, charting the civil war for control of the Seven Kingdoms; the defence of the towering Wall of ice in the uttermost north against the unearthly threat of the Others; and across the Narrow Sea the rise to power of Daenerys Targaryen and the last live dragons in the world.
Seasons one and two of the HBO adaption of A Game of Thrones aired world-wide to critical acclaim.

Good to have all of these in one set though.

That's fine with me - I'm loving the book more than the show anyway. There are details in the books that film just can't translate, such as the way a character is thinking. I'm amazed at the number of characters and how individual and unique they are.
While there is a lot of action and some of it quite violent, there is also humor and tender moments, complicated family dynamics, and good descriptions of the landscape and surroundings so that I can picture what is going on without having to rely on my memory of the show. I'll be ordering more when I get through the first five, as I enjoy reading well written book series.
When you get the set, you need to open it right then. Don't just leave it in the box for a couple of months and then take it out. You'll want to check it for any damage and to make sure all the pages are in tact. I've seen a couple of complaints about damages and missing pages. I checked mine when they arrived and they were in perfect condition. These might be good for travel, or for collectors, but I think that I would recommend trade paperbacks for most people for readabilty. They also make nice gifts, but I think I would ask the person what size and type of book they would prefer first.
Please see the pictures attached for size reference.
After reading several reviews, I decided I would splurge and get the leather set. All the pages are in there, I checked. The print is a little small, but I don't mind it. The box seems sturdy, and hopefully it lasts. Now to find a spot to put them where my 2 year old won't reach them.
Even though it is difficult not to imagine the faces of the actors when reading the book, it is still an awesome read. Much more detailed than the series, but also enhanced by it to a certain extent.
