A Game of Thrones

By George R. R. Martin

Though ‘A Game of Thrones’ uses the third-person perspective, it employs limited omniscience and gets narrated from a single character’s perspective at a time; this makes the novel appear as though it gets dissipated in the first-person perspective.

‘A Game of Thrones’ eloquently uses its characters to propel its plot forward. With many characters, the story enjoys depth to an unmatched level as each character interacts with the story, giving fluidity and realism to the consequences of the decisions made by the characters’ actions.
