    Basically a glossy coffee-table book with general descriptions of the various individuals and backdrops of this complex and entertaining series. Careful not to present spoilers, the narrative is essentially observations from the writers and actors and director concerning the development of action and character, with comments from the author of the books and other, with concepts and fashion mixed it, and a little cheekiness besides.

Fans of the series, and I consider myself one, will enjoy the pictures, partly because it gives one the time to really look at the cities, interiors, and such. I hesitated to give it a two, and many will likely assign it a greater number of stars, but really there wasn't much to it, though still enjoyable.

    Great book, interesting read and the little insights into characters from the actors and writers is great, but I think there simply isn't quite... enough.

    "If a large part of your livelihood is adapting source material for the screen, you’re always on the lookout for deep characters, a beautifully crafted and compelling story, passion, violence, intrigue, humanity, and all the ambiguities that come with a fully realized world … and you never find them all in the same place. Except we did. It was exhilarating and terrifying. " - D. B. Weiss, Executive Producer & Head Writer, Game Of Thrones. This line so aptly describes Martin' mammoth series A "If a large part of your livelihood is adapting source material for the screen, you’re always on the lookout for deep characters, a beautifully crafted and compelling story, passion, violence, intrigue, humanity, and all the ambiguities that come with a fully realized world … and you never find them all in the same place. Except we did. It was exhilarating and terrifying. " - D. B. Weiss, Executive Producer & Head Writer, Game Of Thrones. This line so aptly describes Martin' mammoth series A Song of Ice and Fire, the inspiration of HBO' insanely amazing series Game of Thrones. I had never heard of the series or the author until I saw this on TV and had a jaw dropping moment, literally at all that I was seeing. It wasn't your average fantasy drama about a medieval kingdom with knights and princesses in love or princes being conspired against - well not all of it, as I expected it to be but it was a whole new level of crazy shit honestly and I was hooked. I have read fantasy and watched a lot of the genre too in terms of movies and TV shows but nothing of the sort of GOT. Its not just about magic or dragons or the cliche good wins over evil after a million hurdles type of show - its brutal, its violent, its downright sick at times and its terrifying how addictive it can be for the same reasons. There is sex, gore and so much bloodshed you honestly find it creepy and yet you love it. Martin hasn't just written a book about kings at war in a time where sorcery is present - he has created a whole world, characters, that you love or loathe or sometimes find feeling a bit of both. At times the most unlikeliest character grows on you and you are dumbfounded and downright horrified - when you find yourself pitying an incestuous, arrogant knight who could kill a harmless innocent child without flinching but it seems does have goodness in his heart if given a chance to show. So of course when I came across a book about the making of the show which is my new addiction I had to read it and it was as enjoyable to learn about the process of the making of a show which is unlike anything I had ever seen or will see probably. I wanted to know the madmen who could have the courage and be insane enough to be the people behind this magnum opus and the tale of their blood and sweat which we witness every season in 10 episodes each year since the commencement of the show and it was worth the time and effort every bit.

He said I'd like it since I was into fantasy. And I, in return, was telling him that I would watch it soon but it took me some months to fulfill that promise. One day i decided to watch the show partly to shut my friend up (sorry, i'm horrible, I know, if you are reading this:P) and partly because I was really intrigued. So I watched the first episode, and then the second, and then the third and I finished the whole season and the second one in just a few days. I was hooked to the show right from the first episode and decided that I couldn't wait until the next season to find out what happens next . I had to, I had to read the books. And so I did and so did a song of ice and fire become my mostest favoritest book series ever. I've been obsessed with everything to do with this books since then and I've got the show's producers to thank for that. As much as I like critisicing the show now and then for unnecessary additions, I still love it to bits. And in this book the producers of the show tell us how they managed to adapt Martin's magnum opus for big screen. The book contains preface from Martin, exclusive interviews with actors, producers, costume disagner, etc, and amazing concept art. It also provides a lot of backgroung information about Martin's world, characters, history of ancient families and so on to the fans of the show. The fans of the books are already familiar with a lot of things in this book but it's still an enjoyable read for both of the fans of the show and the books alike. "PETER DINKLAGE (Tyrion Lannister): Game of Thrones is great storytelling. It crosses genres. I actually don’t see it as a genre piece anymore. These characters are as vibrant and real as anything I have come across in more traditional great fiction. I think it is narrow-minded to put things into separate categories or dismiss them for being in the far corner of your local bookstore. George R. R. Martin created complex, unforgettable, extremely realistic characters. People seem to think that HBO took a risk. I wish more of us did."

    The houses are explained and the characters backgrounds mentioned. The pictures are of an excellent quality. That being said this book is of limited use to one who has read the series. The explanations are simple and are focused on the events of the first two seasons. This means that the characters, themselves, are defined as they were back then and not how they have grown. This is the perfect companion book to the series if you have not read the books.

    This beautiful book is filled with interesting production tidbits & delicious Kit Harington eye-candy. We're losers with no cable, so I may be the only person who has not yet seen the second season. My hankering is now even more powerful! And let's not even get started on my hankering for the sixth book, because, yeah, too depressing to even contemplate.

Captures so much of the essence of the novels and show. The insights from actors, directors, producers and crew are fantastic. Enjoyed this immensely. - - - “There is no more hazardous task in Hollywood than trying to make a popular or critically acclaimed book into a television series or feature film. Hollywood Boulevard is lined with the skulls and bleached bones of all those who have tried and failed … and for every known failure, there are a hundred you have never heard of, because the adaptation were abandoned somewhere along the way, often after years of development and dozens of scripts.” - George R.R. Martin (p4) “The seed (for the Wall) was planted ten years before I started writing the books, when I visited the UK for the first time and went to Hadrian's Wall. The sun was going down, and I stood on top of the wall, looking north. It was autumn, a chilly day. The wind was blowing, and it woke something in me.” - George R.R. Martin (p10) “I fell in love with him (Jon Snow) immediately because he's not a cliched hero. He makes mistakes; he's possessed with a lot of self-loathing and doubt. He's lived his life as an outsider, since being born a bastard is a mark of shame in this world. While he's lucky to be even recognized by his father and raised alongside his brothers and sisters, he never truly feels part if the family, mainly because of the way he's treated by Catelyn, his stepmother.” - Kit Harrington (p30) “Sean also belongs to a rare, dying breed: the believable, manly tough guy. Ned is a good man, upright and honorable to a fault, but he's a man who's made his place in the world by killing other men. There was a time when lots of recognizable actors had this quality – John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Kirk Douglas, Charlton Heston. Now, not so much. Sean has this quality, and a related but not identical one: he can occupy this kind of period successfully.” - D.B. Weiss (p48) “Aegon's dragon, Balerion the Black Dread, melted down the swords and sealed them in dragonflame.” (p69) “Cersei and Tyrion have a lot in common, which is why their relationship is so damaged. They see each other very clearly for who they really are.” - Peter Dinklage (p72) “Tywin Lannister, whilst being seen to be coldly cruel and domineering, shows, as the story progresses, occasional 'chinks in his armor'. He's an enigma, and enigmatic characters are always attractive – to me, anyway! I'm not sure sure that I would label Tywin a villain – certainly not compared with some of the villains I've played. However, if he is, then unless the character is obviously insane, I look for the justification of his villainy.” - Charles Dance. “Cersei … is not afraid to play dirty to advance their interests.” (p76) “Cersei's mistake is she can't really face the truth about Joff.” - Lena Headey (p79) “There aren't good guys and bad guys. There are just people pursuing their own interests, as they see them, and their own versions of the good, as they see it. Which is exactly what we all do every day.” - D.B. Weiss (p82) “For someone who has been treated quite poorly by his family and the world around him, Tyrion really does enjoy his life. At first glance you would think he was a cynic, but he's really not, in my opinion. Intelligence is often mistaken for cynicism. He burns very brightly. He can be quite the asshole at times, but I believe he has a very good heart. And, of course, with the intelligence comes a great sense of humor. It has helped him survive. He embraces who he is, makes fun of himself before you are given a chance to – beating you at your own game. The smartest people I know are also the funniest. He is that.” - Peter Dinklage (p88) “Tyrion is so many people's favorite character, in the show and the books. … deep empathy.” - D.B. Weiss (p88) “In the case of the execution, Ned's death signals a decidedly darker turn for the tale. Our intrepid hero, trying desperately to protect his family and preserve his honor in a dishonorable place, fails at both. Courage and honesty are not enough to prevail in a dangerous world.” - David Benioff (p98) “Ned was ALWAYS marked for death, so the kids could come into their own.” - GRRM (p99) “If Bronn has any friends, I think Tyrion is his closest – but it doesn't mean loyalty.” - Jerome Flynn (p111) “One of my pet peeves with movie battles is how they're often depicted. Battles are about geography, the lay of the land, who takes the high ground … tactics, strategy, and thought. But in a movie, it's usually two aries lined up on opposite sides of the field and running a teach other, which is idiotic.” - GRRM (p113) “The Greyjoys are iron to the core, claiming descent from the mythic Grey King in the Age of Heroes, who was said to have slain the sea dragon Nagga and taken a mermaid as his wife.” (p120) “I feel very lucky to have the books, more than anything. It's a huge treat for me, as an actor, to have her thoughts written down, or at least a kind of guide to her thoughts. It really helped me get into her in season one, to be able to refer back to it. It's as if it went from George's mind into the book, into my mind, then out my mouth.” Emilia Clarke on 'Dany' (p157) “You know when Drogo would get amped up? I did all this research on the Apaches Geronimo and Cochise,and also Genghis Khan, and funnily enough, Hitler! I remember seeing 'Triumph of the Will' – he was crazy when he delivered those speeches, the physicality, the way he spat out the words and rallied all those people. So, I ended up using some of that in the big scene where Drogo riles up his men.” - Jason Momoa (p169) {Mistake on page 185 – 'bottom right' should say 'bottom left.'} “There's something about our time in which these modes of mythology seem to be catching on. Maybe it's a combination of escapism and that they speak to what we're worried about. There's a lot of the stuff in 'Game of Thrones' – the idea of imminent destruction, the fact that there's war, there's this anxiety of the world – that we share.” - Alan Taylor (director)

    HBO's adaptation of George R.R.Martin's "A Song of Fire and Ice" series is, and I write this with no exaggeration whatsoever, a triumph, a feast for the eyes, a marvel in television production. The acting is first-rate as is the writing, set design and cinematography. It wasn't too long ago, it was whispered about the film community that there was NO WAY Tolkein's "Lord of the Rings" masterpiece could be made into a live-action film.

It was too long, there were too many various locations, the extras needed would border on astronomical. However, Peter Jackson not only accomplished the unimaginable, he did it INCREDIBLY well. The same absolutely must be said for "Game of Thrones" (HBO's working title for the series). The storyline becomes more intriguing, more brutal, more emotional as the series progresses. If you do not have HBO, read the books. Now. If you absolutely must see the series, it is available on iTunes. This story should NOT be missed.

    Initially I had some reserves about reading this book. The main reason is that I am such A Song of Ice and Fire fan that I didn’t want to lose any of the magic by finding out how some of the scenes were created (this is also why I haven’t watched any of the commentaries on the DVD’s).

    Probably best for folks who love the series but haven't read the books on which it's based. Contents are very high quality, lots of well-done photos and enough text for a good weekend's reading.

    This is a good supplementary read for the first two seasons of the TV series. Not intended for those who have not seen the show. It includes character portraits, set-up and locations of the different parts of Westeros, interviews with the writers and actors, and GoT pictures on and off camera.

    It’s really a beutiful looking book with lots of exciting pieces of information. It made me appreciate the show even more and I would definitely like to read something similar for the other seasons. Having said that, it had also a series of inconsistencies and missing elements. For instance, for a show with spectacular titles centered around a map, I found it really weird to have absolutely no proper map of Westeros present in the book. Even G.R.R. Martin’s novels featured the map. Also, it was It’s really a beutiful looking book with lots of exciting pieces of information.

Sentences would stop midway, and I would not know where to find the continuation. Highlighted paragraphs would almost always disrupt the reading, leaving me puzzled about when I was supposed to read them. It has some history parts I suspect written especially for the book (as I don’t remember them being in Martin’s novels and they were certainly not presented in the tv series). Yet elements from the show are definitely missing such as the inclusion of Maester Aemon in the Targaryen family tree.

    It was really interesting to read about the making of the show- the costuming and set design elements were especially interesting to me as well as the chapter about the creation of the Dothraki language. I was reading the eBook on the Libby app, so I’m not sure if the issue was with that edition or across all editions, but the text in some places (I’d estimate 5 different interviews) was edited in such a befuddling way that it was unreadable.

    I loved the behind the scenes stuff, but I'm unsure who this book was meant for. It has major spoilers for those who haven't seen the first two seasons, but it just isn't deep enough for those who have seen and enjoyed them. Seeing some cool pictures, hearing a few interesting thoughts and experiences about casting was basically it. I could mention the family histories, but I felt that those were kinda incomplete.

    This book is definitely worth a read for anyone interested in the A Song of Ice and Fire book series and/or the show. Beautiful set pictures, concept art and in-depth interviews with actors, set designers, producers and others who worked on the show, really brings another dimension to the whole universe.

    I loved this book! I'm a big fan of series, the book give you an inside view of all the characters and their backgrounds. It also give you an idea of how the set are build, show different locations and the designs of the costumes. It's a great book and the pictures are really wonderful. It's a must read.

    Quite informational, especially those family trees. Beautiful layout. I just wonder how it took four years for me to finish reading this. (This book is about season 1 and 2. I just watched the last episode of season 7 and then remembered that I have not finished this book. )
