    He's asking for stuff like The Lord of the Rings, so why recommend A Song of Ice and Fire, which is pretty different from The Lord of the Rings?

    Personally, I find Martin's work engaging because he doesn't write like Tolkien.

    Structurally, the two are very similar. It's just that Song of Ice is much more realistic, gritty, adult, etc.

    I don't know about structurally. Their narratives are fairly different, and Game of Thrones isn't really a "team" book, as the OP requests.

    The Starks are the "team" that splits apart.
