Re: A Game of Thrones - NO SPOILERS, PLEASE
It took me about 4 years to read this book, if it wasn't for the TV show I would never have finished it. I like the prose and the characters, what I didn't like was the lack of fantasy traits like action, adventure and sword fighting and magic. There was a skirmish here and there but it seems that it's easier to outwit your opponent instead of try and hack them.
