A Game of Thrones - George R. R. Martin

I started this what appeared to be the start of a huge fantasy epic (much like Robert Jordan) with some interest, because I had enjoyed some other Martin projects.

To be interested, or stay interested in such a project I would have had to have found some interest in the characters. No such luck. This might work in one short book, but not in this might not ever even be finished at this rate story.

Very disappointing. The writing is ok, just lots of points off for no-one and no plot of interest, or at least one that I couldn't have gotten from a garden variety historical novel set in this sort of milieu.
