A Game of Thrones Review

Updated: Sep 8, 2020

A Game of Thrones is a part of a series called 'A Song of Fire and Ice'. This series is based upon fantasies. The author G.R.Martin introduces the plot-lines of the noble houses of Westeros, the Wall, and the Targaryens. The novel has inspired several spin-off plots and several games.

The novel is based on justice, betrayal, power, morality, honour, family, class, maturation and vengeance.

A major part of plot takes place at Westeros, where the stories of major characters are told. The story of Daenerys takes place at different continents, Essos where she's ill-treated by her brother for gaining his kingdom back. All the characters in the book have their roles thus, making story more interesting.

So talking about my favourite character from this book is Eddard Stark. He was a very kind and generous man. He valued his family and friendship very much. In the storyline, Ned Stark is the Lord of Winterfell, a fortress in North of Westeros. He became the King's hand after the death of Jon Arryn and had to move to King's Landing. I could really feel everything that Ned was going through. He did good to everyone in his life. But you know everything is not in your hands, at some point of life when you try to something good for your dear ones, everything gets ruined. And you are left with no options. Same happended with Ned, when he got to know about Cercei Lannister and her brother Jaime Lannister’s relationship and he was betrayed to keep the secret to himself.

In the end, when Robert Baratheon was on his last breaths, he made Ned write a letter for the other lords of King’s Landing that Ned will be the new king after him. But Ned had to give the throne to the one who deserved that was Stannis Baratheon as he was the heir of the kingdom. When Robert died, Cercei declared his son Joffery as the king. Ned tried to serve justice, he was neglected from the council and was executed. Everyone from the council betrayed him even littlefinger. This made me cry that the one who tries to do something better gets eliminated.

To sum up I can say that the book was full of interesting plots and every page creates a suspense and one urges to keep on turning pages until its finished. People who love to read about fantasies must read this book and the series. You will definately enjoy reading it.
