A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
If I can finish a book of this length in under a week it must be good. The story is gripping and brutal. What I liked most was that the characters are realistic - they are neither black nor white, but shades of grey. This really appealed to me because it kept me guessing at what each character would do. This is a must read for all fantasy fiction fans. J.R.R.Tolkien is the only other author who has come close to engaging me in such a way.
