Description

Set 300 years before A Game of Thrones, an even greater game began, one that set the skies alight with dragon flame and saw the Seven Kingdoms turned to ash.   

So began the Targaryens’ bloody rule, with fire and blood. Setting brother against brother, mother against daughter and dragon against dragon. Chronicled by a learned maester of the Citadel, this thrilling and bloody history of Westeros tells the story of where the battle for the Iron Throne began.... 

This audio edition now includes an exclusive interview between George R.R. Martin and historian Dan Jones.

Very good , well read and detailed

Its written very well and positioned from the perspective of a narrator - historian . Nice fresh approach that makes you wonder how much is true. It puts a lot of perspective to the original Ice and fire saga.
Very amusing and never dull.

One downside : it ends closely after the civil war: Dance of Dragons events. Thus its a bit misleading because you expect the whole story until Aerys II.

More of a chore than a pleasure!

I'm a big fan of George R R Martin, but found this book heavy going. Despite the excellent narration, I was left feeling I needed a pen and paper in order to take notes in an effort to track character, dates and events!

I was relieved when the book finished and hope I never hear Mushroom quoted again!

OK for pseudo-history buffs ...

... but not so good if you were wanting a story like the GoT series. No one can fault Mr Martin when it comes to the depth and scale of his universe, but I really prefer his story-telling prowse. Nevertheless, it's well narrated and structured.

More wonderful works building from GRRM

Fire and Blood is a very unique book giving long time ASOIAF fans a great depth of back story to our main plot in the series.
This book stands on it's own in terms of story, but it ads later upon later to GRRM's other works in the series.
Can't wait for part 2, and the tv series that will be made from this.
Also looking forward to The Winds of Winter more than any other book in my life.
5 stars. Give it a chance and you will not regret it at all....

Absolutely Brilliant!!!

I always enjoy the complexity with which George R. R Martin writes his novels, you understand why it takes as long as it takes.
For anyone who’s a fan of “A Song of Ice and Fire” this is a great add to your knowledge and for anyone who’s a fan of well written stories and likes to imagine, this here is your gem.
I can’t wait for the next one.

While you might wish for Mr Martin to finish his books quicker what you do not want if for him to have compromised in anything that he did in this book and any of his other books.

I love the narration by Simon Vance, “Well done Ser” in the voice of Ser Maynard Plumm

Fun to listen to

This was a good book, very informative.

It is a little dificult to always keep the family tree straight with all the names being very similar.

Bit all in all it was worth the time.

It's like listening to a Discovery documentary!

The book is very good, but it's a lot of information condensed into parts ... It's 300 years of history about the Targaryen family narrated in a spectacular way. Listening to this book is like accompanying a Discovery Channel documentary, where historians are presenting known facts and other deductive facts based on the discoveries made.
It is marvelous how the author recounts the story of Targaryen family, narrating at various times various narratives about the same fact, which makes the story a little nebulous but with surprising results.
The search for power, betrayals, alliances permeate the narrative at all times, which ends up being a characteristic feature of the series.

Intransparenz... ist nur die halbe Geschichte

Abgesehen von den sermonischen Eigenschaften der Chronik war ich am Ende wie vor den Kopf gestoßen, als ich feststellen durfte, dass das nur die *halbe* Chronik des Hauses Targaryen ist, die völlig abrupt um das Jahr 135 sowas endet. Das war vorher nirgendwo ersichtlich und deshalb fühle ich mich mal wieder bei audible um mein Geld betrogen... (hatte das schon oft hier, dass Hälften von Büchern als das Gesamtbuch präsentiert wurden und nur bei extrem aufwändiger Recherche als Teilpublikation erkenntlich waren)

Anstrengend

Eine endlose Aufzählung von Namen, Titeln und Regionen mit wenig Handlung. Das Buch ist nur für eingefleischte Fans.

Boring and tedious

This is awful. An endless Wikipedia article. Dates and names. That's all. No narrative flow. Any real medieval chronicle is more engaging than this. The only thing I liked was the reader's voice.

Great for lore nerds, but names-names-names

Great for lore nerds, but names-names-names. I hate names. Don't expext traditional story. However well written better performed.
