The 1949 New York Times Review
IMDB page for the film (that I really need to see now)
"Everyone’s read this book, why are you reviewing it?"
Because I had never read this book until a week ago (it’s a very fast read, and very disarmingly so after spending nearly a year reading nothing by George RR Martin), and I find it has a lot to do with society as it is, as it could be, and as it might be [spoilers].
