A Game of Thrones Book Summary


Available only on iBooks, this enhanced edition is an amazing way to explore the rich world of George R. R. Martin’s series. Stay on top of the epic story lines with annotations, glossaries, and family trees. Follow each main character’s journey with interactive maps. Explore the symbolism of every house’s sigil. In addition to hundreds of enhancements, you’ll find an excerpt of The Winds of Winter, the hugely anticipated sixth book in Martin’s series.

With A Game of Thrones, George R. R. Martin launched a genuine masterpiece, bringing together the best the genre has to offer. Mystery, intrigue, romance, and adventure fill the pages of this magnificent saga, the first volume in an epic series.

Long ago, in a time forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons out of balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. The cold is returning, and in the frozen wastes to the north of Winterfell, sinister forces are massing beyond the kingdom's protective Wall. To the south, the king's powers are failing—his most trusted adviser dead under mysterious circumstances and his enemies emerging from the shadows of the throne. At the center of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a family as harsh and unyielding as the frozen land they were born to. Now Lord Eddard Stark is reluctantly summoned to serve as the king's new Hand, an appointment that threatens to sunder not only his family but the kingdom itself.

Sweeping from a harsh land of cold to a summertime kingdom of epicurean plenty, A Game of Thrones tells a tale of lords and ladies, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and bastards, who come together in a time of grim omens. Here an enigmatic band of warriors bear swords of no human metal; a tribe of fierce wildlings carry men off into madness; a cruel young dragon prince barters his sister to win back his throne; a child is lost in the twilight between life and death; and a determined woman undertakes a treacherous journey to protect all she holds dear. Amid plots and counter-plots, tragedy and betrayal, victory and terror, allies and enemies, the fate of the Starks hangs perilously in the balance, as each side endeavors to win that deadliest of conflicts: the game of thrones.

    Chapter titles, inline links are broken half the time, not sure why - is it online content??? I paid for the book. The entire book should always be functional, shouldn't it?

    When I first baught this book I could minimize the window and read in single page mode. Now I cannot. This is very frustrating.
  • Amazing, but why full justified text?

    This is an amazing book, rethinking what digital books can be, instead of just emulating paper experience. And the book itself is excellent. Buy why is the text forced fully justified? iBooks has an option for this, and this book should have respected that. That’s a big disappointment, specially on iPhone.
  • Great book

  • Definitely worth it for a re-read.

    First and foremost, the Enhanced version is a really great introduction to new readers of the series. The clickable links really help to keep things in check. As any book reader knows, these can be sprawling and it sometimes takes a bit to put together the plot lines and houses. However, the artwork and enhanced stuff is making this for a great re-read as well. Having read through all the books before, I've been meaning to start the series again. What better way than go through it with these Enhanced versions? About mid way through so far and I can't say enough good things about the work that they've done. I actually just pre-ordered the rest of the Enhanced versions as well.
