After staring at the screen for quite a while I now realize that adequately describing such an epic work like the A Game of Thrones audiobook is no simple task. The temptation to compare it with other big titles in the fantasy genre is almost irresistible and yet doesn’t seem quite right. How could I possibly put it in the same category as The Lord of the Rings or The Wheel of Time series? They are all epic fantasy and still they are quite different. George R.R. Martin describes the world of Westeros trough the eyes of multiple believable characters which you start to root for from the beginning. This is a world of extremes and constantly opposing forces, a world where politics, backstabbing, war, adventure and love exist at the same time. How could I possibly do such a masterpiece justice?
