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.

Mehh

Even though it is true to its description this book does not offer a immersive story. Might as well read a wiki article for free.

Need to be a Follower

I wanted to listen to this because I thought it would help me follow the story better. I’m not sure that it did. I might be able to follow it, if I listened to it 3 times and made a diagram.

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 succinct history of Westeros

Covers hundreds of years and hundreds of characters in just over an hour. Great history for ASOIF readers, leading up to Game of Thrones without giving away any secrets.

Fine for Novice

This book is a fine summary for a novice. The history of Westeros can be easily gleaned from the books themselves.

not accurate

Boring to liste to. Too many inaccuracies. For the lore read a world of ice and fire.
