This is an ABRIDGED version of this book and not UNABRIDGED as advertised.
Why are you asking me these stupid questions?
Ocean is a great book. May be my favorite Gaiman book to date. His narration pulls you into the story.
I downloaded Game of Thrones because I had read the comparisons to Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. There are some similarities -- both are set in fictional lands with a rich history, both have dragons, both have good guys and bad guys.
There the similarities end. Game of Thrones is about the rich and powerful and politics. The bad guys cheat to win and the little guys get trampled. No hobbits saving the world, no long lost heir to the throne rising to the challenge and uniting the kingdom.
Maybe that changes in the later books, but I don't care enough to find out.
