A Game of Thrones Book Summary

A NEW ORIGINAL SERIES, NOW ON HBO.

Here is the first volume in George R. R. Martin’s magnificent cycle of novels that includes A Clash of Kings and A Storm of Swords. As a whole, this series comprises a genuine masterpiece of modern fantasy, bringing together the best the genre has to offer. Magic, mystery, intrigue, romance, and adventure fill these pages and transport us to a world unlike any we have ever experienced. Already hailed as a classic, George R. R. Martin’s stunning series is destined to stand as one of the great achievements of imaginative fiction.

A GAME OF THRONES

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 and supernatural forces are massing beyond the kingdom’s protective Wall. At the center of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a family as harsh and unyielding as the land they were born to. Sweeping from a land of brutal cold to a distant summertime kingdom of epicurean plenty, here is 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; and a determined woman undertakes the most treacherous of journeys. Amid plots and counterplots, tragedy and betrayal, victory and terror, the fate of the Starks, their allies, and their enemies hangs perilously in the balance, as each endeavors to win that deadliest of conflicts: the game of thrones.

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from George R.R. Martin's A Clash of Kings and a preview of A Game of Thrones: The Graphic Novel.

    One of my favorite series of all time! Great epic fantastic world.
  • Entertaining but some voices are way off

    Compared to the show at least. So many cockney accents, even for one of Khal Drogo’s blood riders. And Drogo himself sounds like a drunken Cookie Monster. But I’d still buy it again.
  • Book is always better than the show

    Or so the saying goes and this instance is no exception! Everything is more detailed and vivid than in the show. I recommend fans read the books to get the whole experience. Martin is a great author and storyteller.
  • Excellent!

    Better than the awesome TV series! Told from the main players' point of view, and so well done!
  • The PW review here is for the wrong book

    Readers should be aware that the review from Publishers Weekly included under Details here is for a totally different book (apparently Hannibal by Thomas Harris). Apple should be paying more attention to the listing for one of the bestselling series in America.

    I watched the series on HBO and was wondering if I should read the book, I thought to my self what's the point to already know what's going to happen but that doesn't matter you learn so much more from the books the show can't cover everything a lot of things are missing if you watched the show read the books !
  • Just the Beginning.

    If you just read A Game of Thrones for the first time and want to see what all the hype is about, get ready for the ride of your life. Everything else is just child's play.Prepare to be hooked instantly. If you don't already have HBO you will be a subscriber by the time you finish the first book. Get ready because WINTER IS HERE. THE GREAT WAR HAS BEGUN. 🐲🗡🐉⚔️
