Another aspect of this book that I really liked and found very helpful was the character comparisons. Getting those characters that I know and love onto that small screen was my biggest fear. In the books, character development really drives the entire story, so getting the characters right on screen was very important to me. Marc does a superb job at identifying the differences and explaining if this helps or harms the overall plots. Also, I didn't think it was possible, but this book in no way spoils anything for the "watcher only". If the desire is there to find out how the show compares to the books without having to read them, this is the companion book for you. Good job Marc!
A review I read about this book stated that it read as if it were a conversation with a fellow ASOIAF fan and I concur wholeheartedly.
I began reading the GRR Martin saga a couple of years after graduating High School (and continued to read them as they came out.)
When they began the show I was extremely pleased with how a story I had read and held fondly in my memory over the years had been translated onto the screen. It felt the same but it was completely different, so to speak.
When the Red Wedding episode premiered I sat most of the episode watching my wife's reaction as the story unfolded instead of watching the show. Needless to say I've re watched it since then.
I recently changed jobs and have a longer commute, I purchased the audiobooks shortly after season 4 finished to listen to on my commute to work in anticipation of season 5 as I don't have time to sit and read the books physically again.
Although I had read the series beforehand, there were so many details that I had forgotten about, so much history and I forgot about all the history and intricacies in the series that I've fallen in love with the story all over again.
I've been reading forums here and there about theories that fans have about where the story goes and such and I read a couple of blogs (one of whom Marc writes on) but with the busy life I lead, reading a back and forth from many different people gets a bit tiresome.Read more ›
I highly recommend purchasing this book as a companion to the both series. It is a great tool for helping to review and/or recall specific details from both storylines, even the most miniscule.
The North remembers, and, with the help of this companion, I do as well! Great job!
Disclosure: I received a free copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.
