A Song of Ice and Fire

If you like fantasy books, I recommend to look at A Song of Ice and Fire series. There are only 4 of 7 volumes available at the moment, each volume consists of two books in Czech edition. Why is it so interesting? There is huge number of characters, one chapter narrates story from the side of one particular person. You'll understand a behaviour of important characters and take a fancy or hate some of them. There is and must be well-developed story, when you want to describe many persons in detail. I always looked forward to the end of chapters, there was often something unexpected and when you get used to these swift turns, you won't be surprised by how gracefully the author kills all your favourite characters. It's a chronicle of some world, nobody cares about what you wish.
