Well, im a big Lover of Books. And my favourite Novel-Genres Are High-Fantasy (Tolkien,Lewis), political Naturalism (Tolstoi,Gorki) and Mystery (Poe,Christie). I thought that there will never be something as good as my favourite Piece of Literature: J. R. R. Tolkiens Work (The Silmarrilion,The Hobbit,The Lord of the Rings) and that made me a bit sad. I go to my local Bookstore every Saturday and i once i asked the seller if he knows something good that combines These 3 Genres and he gave me A Song of Ice and Fire-A Game of Thrones and said: "This ist the best Piece of Fantasy,Realism and Mystery in the 21st Century... Read it!" I watched the Series before and i am at the End of Book 1 now and i have to say it is my favourite Book Series along with Lord of the Rings! I love it its perfect.
