Publisher's Summary

Full of daring theories and fascinating tales from the world of Ice and Fire, Game of Thrones: The Book of White Walkers delves deep into the most riveting aspects of White Walkers - who they are, where they came from and where they are going. How did the First Men cross the Narrow Sea, habitat of the Children of the Forest, and how did the war of technology and magic unleash the White Walkers? Was it really Bran the Builder who constructed the Wall and what horror lies underneath it? And is the Wall truly the permanent structure fans perceive it to be, or will it be razed through one of the many ways hinted at in the books? Finally, can White Walkers be truly defeated, and if so, how?

A perfect gift for fans of the TV show as well as the book series, Game of Thrones: The Book of White Walkers serves as both an introduction and an accompaniment to the existing media. If you want to find out how the World of Ice and Fire came to be or what might happen next, this is the place to start!

Rehash of known information.

There was not anything surprising or unknown if you are a regular watcher of the show or reader of the novels.

Doesn’t say anything you don’t already know

Pretty much no reason for this book to exist, plenty of other sources to go to when you actually want to learn something about the others. Doesn’t add anything just reiterates obvious things, not worth listening to so save both your money and time.

It's okay

This is a decent listen IF you haven't plunged into the world of fan theory. However, if you are current with the TV series and you have read the books, this is just dribble. All it does is give you an overview of everything you already know. I was very disappointed with the fact that there is no new information about white walkers.

weak. nothing new!

This book about the white Walkers is only for the listen for can't get enough G.O.T. that they must have everything. the book only goes over what has allready been written in the book and TV. no new info. the narrator does a good job of going over the info.

Good info for catching up on things!

Good info for catching up on things!

If you download the ebook, which is free for Kindle Unlimited members, it has a note that states that the book is constantly updated, so the audio and print may not match up.

The audio does not cover the last episodes of the series which are being split into two seasons. The first half just concluded and the second half will play out next year.

The audio covers all that has happened with the White Walkers so far in both the books and the television show. The TV show is ahead time-line wise of the books, as Mr. Martin has deadline issues. There are still 2 more books due in the series.

This is a good catch up on things you may of missed so far as well as a nice refresher for before the season of the show starts. It also covers some theories and speculations, that as a fan, you know you have.

Leanne Yau does an excellent job of narrating this Non-Fiction read about a Fiction series. She presents the information in a clear and precise manner.

I give this a 5 for what it is, but also want to put a warning out there for those that are just starting the series either in print or TV, there will be spoilers.

Good White Walker History

Interesting, the history of The White Walkers,how they came to be, what they did with the sacrificed baby boys, how they reanimated dead people and animals alike.
As well as why they were able to eventually kill The Three Eyed Raven .

Also, so history about Bran The Builder and the making of the wall.

Great Listen, Known Material

It was a good listen to get you a refresher on the origin and a little history of the white walkers from the series. Unfortunately if you are coming into this thinking you will learn something new, then you may be disappointed. “Audible 20 Review Sweepstakes Entry”

Good performance, a fresh voice

Well narrated, but as I've listened to 'A World of Ice and Fire' this was basically a re-cap of what I've already listened to.
