George R. R. Martin is releasing a new book in his series A Song of Fire and Ice. A Game of Thrones is the first book in the series, and is currently an HBO series as well. I haven't seen the series, although I have heard good things about it. The book is a long one and is a very compelling read. I enjoyed it and have begun reading the second book.
This book has interesting characters, a good story line and a unique world. If you like fantasy, especially epic fantasy, this book will be a great read for you. These books are long, making them perfect for summer traveling which may include a lot of waiting. If you enjoy fantasy you should check out A Game of Thrones.
