Kebetulan saya masih berjibaku dengan seri ketiga Game of Thrones yang berjudul A Storm of Swords yang tebalnya lebih dari 1000 halaman, hahaaau, saya ingin merekomendasikan buku pertama yang keren banget!

A Game of Thrones.

Sekilas review dari Goodreads :

Long ago, in a time forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons out of balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. The cold is returning, and in the frozen wastes to the north of Winterfell, sinister and supernatural forces are massing beyond the kingdom’s protective Wall. At the center of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a family as harsh and unyielding as the land they were born to. Sweeping from a land of brutal cold to a distant summertime kingdom of epicurean plenty, here is a tale of lords and ladies, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and bastards, who come together in a time of grim omens.

Here an enigmatic band of warriors bear swords of no human metal; a tribe of fierce wildlings carry men off into madness; a cruel young dragon prince barters his sister to win back his throne; and a determined woman undertakes the most treacherous of journeys. Amid plots and counterplots, tragedy and betrayal, victory and terror, the fate of the Starks, their allies, and their enemies hangs perilously in the balance, as each endeavors to win that deadliest of conflicts: the game of thrones.

Buku setebal 807 halaman ini dulu sempat saya dengar akan diterjemahkan, tapi belum tahu lagi bagaimana kelanjutanya, yang jelas jangan cemas dengan ketebalannya. Dijamin ga bakal bosan. Intrik kerajaan, perpaduan antara romance, drama, tragedi bahkan magic bercampur baur di sini. Malas baca bukunya, coba dulu menonton serialnya yang sudah beredar 2 season.

Beberapa quote favorit saya dari buku pertama :

“A mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge.”

“Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armour yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you.”

Gimana? Keren kan? 🙂 *towel-towel penerbit lokal*
