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.

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..

very informative, narrator is very good.

narrator is clear and pleasant to listen to. Book is a very good history of the primary families in the game of thrones. some spoilers but not enough to ruin the books. would recommend reading to anyone into the game of thrones.

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.
