Publisher's Summary

Game of Thrones: A Family History recounts the epic tales of three of the largest and most important houses in the series: the Targaryens, the Starks, and the Lannisters. Learn how the Targaryens originally took control of the Seven Kingdoms under their great King, Aegon the Conqueror, and how the Lannisters came to be masters of Casterly Rock. Chart the development of the Starks, first as kings in the North then as kingmakers under their popular lord, Eddard Stark.

A perfect gift for fans of the TV series as well as the book cycle, A Song of Ice and Fire, Game of Thrones: A Family History serves as both an introduction and accompaniment to the existing media. If you want to find out how the world of ice and fire came to be, this is the place to start.

The description lies

There is no new material in this book like the description states. If you have read the song of ice and fire series and knight of the seven kingdoms you've heard everything stated in this book (and in my opinion, with more structure and better pros.) Not worth 5 dollars in my opinion.

inaccurate information

Mispronunciation of names and small details of inaccuracies on certain subjects. For example hereditary traits of certain families.

Really enjoyed it

I truly enjoyed this book. The one note I've got is that the song in the final chapter, "The Rains of Castamere" is a song. It must be sung. Besides that, the performace was great. I could clearly make out everything and you made it super easy and enjoyable to listen to.

Boring

This might be a great book for those very involved in the theme. I was hoping it might get me started in the series. Pass it up.

Must Be a Fan

This is a great tool for a fan of the series. I never have seen the TV series, only ever read the books. still years later love the characters, hesitant to watch the HBO Series because I don't want to ruin the memories..

Great Back Stories

Loved getting a better understanding of the families. I am glad I spent about $5.00 to purchase it. It was well worth it, but glad I did not waste my membership "credit". I'll save my credit for another Game of Thrones audio book which is usually over $20.00.

Gives a good story back ground

But not much story. It'll be only interesting if you watched the show. More like a prep to the main story line.
