  • Holy.. Thank you sooo much for posting this, It's probably a pricing error but I'm not sure.

    • I agree with this review of ADWD. So do about 5,000 others.

    Buy now think later

    Ill just gift it to someone

    Thanks scotty

  • I believe this set contains 5 books and season 1 & season 2 of TV series. Had me excited for a moment by mention of 7 books

    • The box set includes: A GAME OF THRONES A CLASH OF KINGS A STORM OF SWORDS, 1: STEEL AND SNOW A STORM OF SWORDS, 2: BLOOD AND GOLD A FEAST FOR CROWS A DANCE WITH DRAGONS, 1: DREAMS AND DUST A DANCE WITH DRAGONS, 2: AFTER THE FEAST

    • +1

      No, I have this exact same set and it's just books.

    • +5

      Two books of the set have been split into two, presumably to make it easier to read (although the cynic in me says its to make more money from people who buy them separately).

      There are still only five books in the series at this stage, but A Storm Of Swords and A Dance With Dragons have two parts each in this set.

      • Apparently it was hard to make a paperback that big. Either that or they had to reduce the font size

        • There is a single volume paperback - How the font size compares I am not sure.
          It likely is difficult to make one that big, but I still think they've done it for money :)

  • That's an INSANE price. Just bought. Thank you so much OP!

  • Thank OP. I was hoping these would get cheap, didn't expect this cheap!

  • just bought, hopefully get them soon

  • Thanks OP, got one too!

  • +1

    think it was meant to save $12

  • Cheers Scotty. Don't typically read books, but at this price and the quality of the TV show I couldn't pass it up.

  • cant say no! thanks for sharing

  • +2

    Not sure exactly what I just bought, but I bought it… will investigate later. (Love GoT)

  • How have the nile dealt with pricing errors in the past?

    • +4

      That set has a new cover art and a different isbn… maybe they are clearing stock of the old set?

      • Maybe they haven't updated the picture on the website

        • Ah, no. Different ISBN = different product.

          Cannonball87 has hit the nail on the head - they're clearing out the old version. Happy either way!! :)

  • Thanks Scotty. Great post, grabbed two sets for gifts. Hopefully they honour the price :)

  • bought it, thanks OP

  • +2

    thanks Scotty!! just bought. if it's a pricing error.. it would be like.
    ding ding ding shame. ding ding ding shame.

  • +1

    Thanks Scotty. Read them all, but my head is saying "buy now, question later!"

  • Good price.

  • Purchased…fingers crossed they deliver!

  • Crazy, crazy deal. Thanks OP.

  • YES! thank you so much. have always wanted these books

  • 5 books of 7 from the main story line but what about 'The Hedge Knight', 'The Sworn Sword', 'The Mystery Knight', 'The Princess and the Queen, or, the Blacks and the Greens', 'The Rogue Prince, or, a King’s Brother'? All novellas based on that Series by George R. R. Martin.

    Surely a set should include those too!!!

  • Bought the box set a couple of months back for about $50 and I thought that was a bargain!

    • Ditto, from Target IIRC.

  • +1

    placed an order, but didnt get confirmation email?? anyone have this problem?

    • Yeah, I didn't receive an email either…

    • +1

      Mine went to junk. Try checking your junk mail.

    But you can just watch the TV show. Why spend like 80 hours staring at paper, motionless?

    • +9

      motionless? what if you read them on a train?

    • +9

      I'm pretty motionless when I watch television.

      • +2

        Don't be lazy bro! Get a treadmill in front of the tv

    • because the books are better than the show - story wise.

      myself, im not a reader, but i will give it to my wife.

    • +3

      The show is just the tip of the iceberg of the world that exists in the books. The TV series shows the main plot points in an easily digestible manner, but the books go into incredible detail and a great deal of world building.

      You will know the characters on a much deeper level as you will be able to see their thought processes, because in the books one chapter = a particular character's perspective. Daenerys Targaryen appears somewhat wooden in the show but it is a result of most of her character being inside her mind.

      Also, given the increasing amount of book-show variations it is not as if you are consuming the same plot in different form.

      If you're a fan of the show, reading the books will be one of the best thing you can do for yourself. And if you don't watch the show, read the books anyway!

    • The show is fantastic, but its nothing more than a shadow compared to the books

  • Stupidly cheap. Don't need them, don't even read books for pleasure. BOUGHT!

  • This is insane… especially if they honour it

  • Shut up and take my money!

  • I hate reading books, and i still bought!

  • Too cheap to pass up even though i don't read books.

  • Buy now think later

  • It is hard to resist such a price:'(

    However, I would wait until Martin completes this series of stories.

    • +6

      I think you'll find HBO are writing them for him now

  • Bought one, thanks op

  • Never seen or read about GOT but great deal for $12

  • placed an order just then as well. insane price I was actually trying to buy these books !! thanks hope it comes through

    • This deal was honoured last time https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/199267, but I can see by your comment you had no such luck.

      • Got stung twice :(

      • It was? My order wasn't. Then I had to chase them up to actually refund my payment.

  • Just ordered, great price. Thanks OP!

  • My bet is a pricing error and will be cancelling orders at a later date.

  • Thanks just grabbed 1 set, awesome if honoured.

    • +1

      You just have to look up history on Ozbargain of ridiculously low prices from The Nile to know that they don't honour pricing errors.

      Example the $7.09 Game of Thrones Season 1 blu-ray orders was cancelled. https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/209599

      • Just got a new email:
