One College, One Book: ‘A Game of Thrones’ by George R.R. Martin

Box set of the books

Many of our students are reading books from the ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ series by George R.R. Martin and so we have decided to make the first book in the series the book of the month. ‘A Game of Thrones’ is the first in the fantasy series and is followed by ‘A Clash of Kings’, ‘A Storm of Swords’, ‘A Feast for Crows’ and finally ‘A Dance with Dragons’.

The author was born on the 20th of September 1948 in New Jersey and began writing at a very young age. He is considered to be the J.R.R. Tolkien of our time and his ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ novels have been made into a television series by HBO.

If any of our students have already read ‘A Game of Thrones’ then we would encourage them to read any of the books in this series.

We look forward to your views on these novels during the course of this month.
