I have read this one in polish so it was pretty fast to read.. It is not similar to Game of Thrones but still it is a pretty good fantasy and I can say that I liked it.
Book consists of three shorter stories so you can read 1/3 of a book at a time. If you want to read something taking action in Westeros then this book is for you. Especially if you are sick as me and need to stay in bed.
