I remember discovering the Game of Thrones when it was first released years ago. This is a high fantasy novel that evokes the joy and thrill of Tolkein. After that initial discovery, I’ve been devouring this series ever since.
When they started talking about the TV series, I couldn’t wait and I went a re-read the book. I have consumed this book in every format there is. I would say even if you’ve already read the book, it’s well worth watching the TV series and listening to the audiobook version as well. Particularly if you can get the audiobook free as I’m about to tell you.
First, here’s a quick summary of the story for the uninitiated: In a fantasy realm, rife with politics there is danger lurking from an evil that’s massing beyond the the protective wall of the kingdom of Winterfell. As the saying goes,”Winter is coming.” The kings powers are failing and enemies are emerging to take the throne. Follow the Starks of Winterfell as they strive to hold off the evil. Magic, kings and ladies, sorcerers, soldiers and monsters abound in this high fantasy series and we wait to see who will win the game of thrones.
This is one of those books that joins the ranks of Tolkien in high fantasy. You’ll be enthralled with the story as I was. The book normally retails on Audible for $31.50. But I’m going to tell you how you can get the audiobook version of George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones absolutely free!
