      "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."
