Praise for George R. R. Martin and A Song of Ice and Fire
“The only fantasy series I’d put on a level with J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings . . . It’s a fantasy series for hip, smart people, even those who don’t read fantasy.”—Chicago Tribune
“Martin amply fulfills the first volume’s promise and continues what seems destined to be one of the best fantasy series ever written.”—The Denver Post, on A Clash of Kings
“Martin has produced—is producing, since the series isn’t over—the great fantasy epic of our era. It’s an epic for a more profane, more jaded, more ambivalent age than the one Tolkien lived in.”—Lev Grossman, Time
“Addictive . . . George R. R. Martin has created the unlikely genre of the realpolitik fantasy novel.”—Rolling Stone, on A Feast for Crows
“Epic fantasy as it should be written: passionate, compelling, convincingly detailed and thoroughly imagined.”—The Washington Post, on A Dance with Dragons
“I always expect the best from George R. R. Martin, and he always delivers.”—Robert Jordan

->Books are perfect, font is fine for reading.
->The fifth book is quite large and i don't know if it'll hold after a couple of reads.
->The first book has the Ned Stark cover and it is slightly smaller than others, but it IS part of the box set as it is written on back of the first book (I saw some reviews stating its rare seeing this in a box set).
->As someone said the box won't probably hold the books after reading them. It is tight now as it is.
->The box is very fragile, mine was torn when i opened the package mainly because the packaging was not good enough. The amazon package box was larger than the box set and they didn't provide any air-bubble sheet or anything. I would prefer using some tape to reinforce the corners of the box because i'm pretty sure it'll tear apart if not handled with care.
->Also at this price this is definitely better than individually buying the books.
The main points I consider is:
Detailing of the books (This set is amazing)
Reader Experience and vividity of the same (Again amazing)
Ease of the language (readability), while being rich enough to give you a thrill (Full marks)
Font (Probably a bit small to my liking. The books are smaller and so there is this slight font issue)
Quality of the books. (This is paperback, so you have to be careful with it. But its great otherwise).
Overall. 5 stars.
The package is awesome. I don't care about the cover of the set being broken etc. I love the books. Thanks Amazon
Prefer this paperback boxset over the regular ones.
Also if the next two books could be in the same theme as this boxset then the collection would be complete.
It had a map of Westeros and the books are numbered.
Only one negative is that it did not have any bookmark, which amazon generally provides while buying books from their site.
1] First of all, Game Of Thrones is the one with the HBO cover which is ridiculous as a box set is supposed to have the same imprints.
2] Half the books are set in 8 pt. MINION PRO which looks good.
3] The rest of the books are set in 10 pt. TRUMP MEDIEVAL with utterly ugly iconography.
How are two different imprints with the same cover series, and one television imprint being sold in the same box set is beyond my understanding. The books set in TRUMP MEDIEVAL are so ugly that they look like cheap fakes that one sees on the road sides being sold for 50 bucks. Do not buy this set! When I opened the manufacturer's sealed plastic I found so much dust inside and the books looked like they had been used. Instead if you want a decent collection, go buy the set printed by ST. Clays PLC which has awesome quality books in the same imprint with the same cover series and all set in MINION PRO with beautiful iconography. OR if you want to avoid any confusion altogether, then buy the boxed set printed by Bantam Spectra which has no Indian Editions.
This set has confirmed my suspicion that Indian Presses cannot print books in decent quality. Maybe editors at Harper India were sleeping when these sets were being printed out or maybe Harper India has absolutely zero quality control, but one thing is clear: Books printed in the UK are so much better!
