    "Having not really gotten into Game of Thrones I wanted to find something that might peek my interest about the serious and give me a whole new prospective and a way of looking at the series as a whole. While you get a lot of discussion about the characters and their decisions in the show I felt that there was something that was still missing from these discussions. When I came across The Ultimate Game of Thrones and Philosophy I knew I had found the right book. The author holds a PH. D and they uses various essays to examine and explain the thought process of the characters and how things line up from a philosophical standpoint. This gives more life to the series in my mind and puts things in the context of reality from fantasy."

    "As a huge fan of the show Game of Thrones, I immediately went to discover books related to the franchise. I came across Winter is Coming: The Medieval World of Game of Thrones, a book that is about how George R R Martin came about creating the series. It is a fantastic read and a good length book, clocking in at just under 300 pages. I highly recommend any fan to check this book out!"

    "This book is about philosophies in Game of Thrones. I however expected a bit more in depth discussion of Game of Thrones philosophies. If you're new to philosophy exploration, the book will probably satisfy you. It touches on Game of Thrones events, though in that area I would have like more as well."

    "So I love Game of Thrones and was trying to find a good book about it. A Feast of Ice and Fire is not a good book if that's what you're looking for. I thought it would be more than just food and some more about the show but nope. Pass this one up. "
