    In a time long forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons off balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. As the cold returns, sinister forces are massing beyond the protective wall of the kingdom of Winterfell. To the south, the king's powers are failing, with his most trusted advisor mysteriously dead and enemies emerging from the throne's shadow.

    Story
    What did you love best about A Game of Thrones?

    The depth of the characters and reality of Westeros was first rate. The interweaving of three main stories—the noble Stark family and court politics, the exiled Princess Daenerys and the tale of Jon Stark in the north—is fascinating.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed how well the author developed the myriad characters and the intricacies of court politics and the fighting among and within the seven kingdoms. The whole subculture of the Rangers of the Night's Watch at North Wall was also fascinating.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Roy Dotrice?

    Anyone but him. I hated his gravelly voice and even more when he changed his voice to be different characters. His voice almost ruined the whole thing for me. One should enjoy the read not be offended by it.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Seven kingdoms, one steel throne, who will reign?
