Description

This book showcases the best and most humorous quotes from George R.R. Martin's favourite character Tyrion Lannister, the worldly, jaded, funny, highly intelligent, cynical, womanizing star of the books. A perfect stocking-filler for every fan of the books, and of HBO's award-winning television series. 'I only need half my wits to be a match for you' Short and to the point. That's Tyrion. Here are the finest, funniest, rudest and wisest sayings of the miniature Machiavelli; the dwarf with a brain the size of a planet and a heart of (tarnished) gold ...'Sleep is good. Books are better' Drawn from George R.R. Martin's bestselling A Song of Ice and Fire books, the basis for the HBO original series Game of Thrones. Illustrations are by artist and caricaturist Jonty Clark.show more

Review quote

'Mr. Martin is a literary dervish, bursting with the wild vision of the very best tale tellers. And Tyrion is his grandest creation' New York Times 'I love Tyrion Lannister. He's a baller and a drinker but he's also dry, cynical, jaded. An atheist and an aesthete. I'm telling you about him because I think you will love him too, and I want to not be the only person in my social circle who has a poster of him on the wall in their kitchen' Caitlin Moran Praise for A Song of Ice and Fire: 'The sheer mind-boggling scope of this epic has sent other fantasy writers away shaking their heads ...Its ambition: to construct the Twelve Caesars of fantasy fiction, with characters so venomous they could eat the Borgias' Guardianshow more
