HistoryOfWesteros.jpgMade my way though The World of Ice & Fire: The Untold History of Westeros and The Game of Thrones.  The book is a little over 300 pages.  What makes this standout is the physical size it and all so the nice soft cover on it.  How ever the most important is the words and art inside.  It is write like it was all most like a school history book what would be used in the Game of Thrones world.  Which is a very cool idea.  The art is amazing to look at.  Even the look of the pages looks like its a very old book.  Which is very nice touch.

If you are interested in knowing more about the history and the world around the books or TV show.  It’s full of lots of detail.  Starting right from the Children of the Forest, the First Men, the Andal, Targaryen’s and right up to were the main books are.  There is lots of great info on the lands of Westeros, Essos and the people in them.  For the most part enjoyed reading this.  However had to forces myself though a bit of it.  Much like real history books some of it can be very dry or boring.  Over all it was well worth my time reading.  If you are a fan of Ice & Fire books or the TV show this book is worth checking out.

HistoryOfWesteros.jpgPicked up a copy of The World of Ice & Fire: The Untold History of Westeros and The Game of Thrones.  The book has new material from George R.R. Martin and a few other authors as well as full-colour artwork and maps. The book talk about how the world game to be.  All so the family trees for all the big Houses.  The store had it for 40% off the cover price, which is $58.00.  So couldn’t pass that deal up.  Flipped though the pages and the illustrations are very nice.  The book its self is very big.  A bit bigger than a video game strategy guide.  Will be back with a review once I am done reading it.
