Can't wait for the next one. ( )

There were some sections in there that made for entertaining reading, but without the support framework of a novel (or 6) it was hard to feel invested in what was going on. This book was like GRRM remembered that The Silmarillion exists and thought, "Hey, I could do that."

The problem is that unlike JRRT, GRRM didn't have decades of outlines and myths spanning a world's entire history. GRRM's history of the Targaryens is focused on a more narrow band of his world's imaginary history, and the events described therein are more petty and forgettable. ( )

Excellent Look back to the beginnings of Game of Thrones and of the mysterious Targaryens and the beginnings of the houses we know in game of thrones... And Dragons! ( )

“Fire and Blood” purports to be Volume 1 of the history of the Targaryens in Westeros, from the Conquest of Aegon I to the end of the regency of Aegon III, a period of roughly 135 years or so. As such, it reads as most histories do, concentrating on the high-born, wars and castle intrigues, while including numerous lists of people involved in those activities without much differentiation between most of the names. But as ever, GRRM’s prose is compelling and even its great length (709 pages) isn’t daunting once one gets into the rhythm of the thing. Along the way, we learn some things, such as how it came to be that the Targaryens were the only House that had (and flew) dragons; how and why women were excluded from the succession in most places, and much more. I’ve been reading GRRM since, oh, “A Song for Lya” back in the mid-1970s, and am always happy to read more. This book is just the first half of the history, however, and every day spent on this and on its sequel is a day when the author is not working on “The Winds of Winter.” The first book in A Song of Ice and Fire came out when I moved from California to Canada, and I’ve been here 25 years now! That said, I’m pleased with “Fire and Blood,” and I’d recommend it to anyone interested in the world GRRM has created. ( )

I am so happy to have been back in Westeros again for a while! I didn't care my wife was mocking me for reading fictional history instead of actual history, because reading is fun, but reading GRRM is even more fun! :-)

Of course, it's tantalizing to realize that there is a second volume still to be written. However, being really like an actual history book, Fire and Blood doesn't end on a cliffhanger and just keeps you interested - not dying - to read on after it's finished.

I loved how the narrator refers to various sources throughout the tale, one even less reliable than the other.

Two remarks though. One, my edition didn't have a map. I was referring to the included Targaryen lineage all the time while reading, but I really could have done with a map of Westeros (and the Free Cities) too. As the storyline covers more than a century in just a few hundred pages, it criss-crosses through the fantasy realm at neck breaking speed. I mostly read with a digital fan based map nearby.

Two, the comparison of Fire and Blood with [b:The Silmarillion|7332|The Silmarillion|J.R.R. Tolkien|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1565193934l/7332._SX50_.jpg|4733799] is beyond me. Sure, it's set in a time before the main events of the main books, but that's where the similarity ends.

The Silmarillion is a thousand times vaster than Fire and Blood and gives a glimpse of the incredible amount of work that JRR Tolkien put into his fantasy world. I'm talking a complete set of mythology, several languages, an amazing genesis-story, ... so many things that GRRMs work does not include.

In comparison, Fire and Blood is just a quick overview of a relatively short period of time in the history of Westeros.

(It's much more funny than The Silmarillion however. :-D)

I feel blessed that such a talented writer as GRRM happens to be writing in one of my favourite genres. Thank you! ( )
