A Game of Thrones - George R.R. Martin I've heard a lot about this book. My uncle adores it. My mom dislikes it. A lot of my friends love it. I see it everywhere I go, because I browse the fantasy shelves more than any others. I've had it recommended to me by friends and by GR about a hundred times.

But in all honesty, I'm probably never going to read it. Yes, I know it's blasphemy for a fantasy fan to say that, but...no. I don't have anything against the book now, but since everyone seems to love it, and because of a lot of stuff I've heard about it really isn't my thing, I don't think I'll pick it up.

I'm being closed-minded and making assumptions. Oh, well, I'm human. It happens...maybe in a year or a decade I'll change my mind. We'll see.
