Rezension bezieht sich auf: A Game of Thrones: A Song of Ice and Fire: Book One (Taschenbuch)
This one came highly recommended to me, but I found I had to force myself to finish it. It was much too brutal for my taste, what with all the rapes, beheadings and slayings. Not to mention the rather misogynistic way the female characters are portrayed. But then most of the main characters in this fantastic-history are hostile, devious and unlikeable, giving the reader little to hang onto that is appealing. A couple of the characters were wonderfully written, Tyrion and Jon Snow, and it was for their plot threads that I even finished this heavy-handed story. It's too bad, as many of the place descriptions are wonderful, coming from an obviously talented writer. Just too grim for my liking.
