A Song of Ice and Fire

Im not usually much of a fan of large multi-part fantasy epics, but I took a chance on this book and it (and the other parts released) was one of the most pleasant surprises I've had with a book lately.

It has the usual magic and dragons trappings, but all that is kept firmly in the backdrop to a gritty vivid world explored from the perspective of multiple characters. Most pleasing is that unlike virtually all his peers Martin seems willing to move the plot forward and kill characters without compunction - a refreshing change to virtually every other fantasy series I've read where the authors usually seem obsessed with maintaining some status quo so they can keep the money train rolling.

Anyone else read this series.
