"For anyone yet to read Martin's novels, the book is a godsend. For all its epic brilliance, Game Of Thrones' multiple complex story threads can leave you befuddled, but thanks to profiles of the major characters, family trees and more, you soon know how to tell a Greyjoy from a Tyrell.The book's also a solid 'Making Of'. Author Bryan Cogman (a story editor on the series) has interviewed the show's key creative forces, and between them they reveal the attention to detail that's gone into realising the Seven Kingdoms. Particular focus is given to pivotal scenes like the storming of King's Landing, and it's here - when things get properly geeky - that the book's at its best."
"For the most part, people who watch and adore HBO's adaptation of author George R.R. Martin's Game of Thrones saga (released in book form via the A Song of Fire and Ice series) do so largely, though still pleasantly, in the dark. Give any random viewer a pop quiz with questions about which character belongs to which family, and how to spell characters' names, and the grades would be sub-par at best. Thankfully, the dense story lines are much easier to sift through and grasp thanks to Inside HBO's Game of Thrones. Combining in-depth cast and crew interviews with Martin's own insight, it's 192 pages of Westeros overload, perfect for a few months of catching up and/or refreshing before the show returns for its third season"

This is just one fascinating anecdote in what has to be the definitive companion to Seasons 1 and 2.
Welcome here the perfect gift for all "Game of Thrones" addicts, hours of contented exploration guaranteed.
Lavishly illustrated, it delves deeply into every aspect of the series: the warring kingdoms; evocative sets; full-blooded characters; actors capable of rising to formidable challenges, not overwhelmed by the sheer scale of it all.
So many problems were impressively overcome, some with unexpected benefits. Example? What to be done with episodes running short, there little money to spare? Solution? Create scenes with only two actors. These proved a real bonus. Far from being mere spacefillers, they provided valuable extra insight into the characters involved.
As with "Game of Thrones" itself, there is here so much to admire. This treasure trove of information really does the series proud. There can be no higher tribute.
