    "I'm a huge Game of Thrones TV series fan and these last months, as we were waiting for Season 7 to air, I decided to give the books a try. I bought this book and I was able to understand better the stories I'd watched on TV and also got to explore the fantasy realm with ease."

    "I think A Wiki of Ice and Fire is a very good solution. The solution is a direct link which provides an overview of the conflict that exists in the Game of Thrones. It provides an identification of the factions involved and circumstances."

    "I wanted to get into Game of Thrones like everyone else. Problem is, I was so far behind. With Interactive Game of Thrones Map with Spoilers control I was able to see where each of the actors in the series went about their storyline. Utilizing the books and the show, this was a great tool to invest in so that you can get caught up to speed with things you may have missed."

    "The books are a must read for any fan of show of Game of Thrones. This book set is not a quick resource to look back on relationships, kingdoms, and timelines, however. I would look elsewhere, such as wikipedia, for a quick overview of specific information or a refresher."

    "The foremost wiki about Game of Thrones, you won't get much better than Wiki of Thrones for finding things out and keeping them actively straight as the series comes to a close. Just be wary of unmarked spoilers if you've fallen behind and missed some episodes!"

    "I was given this as a gift to read by a friend who's been trying to get me into Game of Thrones. I was reluctant to read it just because I'm not that into the story. It is an interesting source of facts. I would recommend if you're already into Game of Thrones. I have a feeling though if you're like me and just don't get the hype, it won't be of much interest to you too."

    "Anyone who is obsessed with Game of Thrones knows how difficult it can be to keep up with all of the family connections and the characters that seem to be introduced just to drop dead a scene later and even how the world exists around them. I've read the books and have a good grasp on this, but my husband does not. I ended up buying this book for him to read through to sort of boost his knowledge and trivia on the series before the new season comes out and ended up reading it myself. It introduced me to a lot of things I simply didn't know before hand!"

    "The Ultimate Game of Thrones and Philosophy: You Think or Die (Popular Culture and Philosophy) is well, just what it says it is, the Ultimate Game of Thrones Guide! I've found no other book that compares to this one in terms of in depth knowledge and expertise. I can watch the show ten times over and not nearly know the show as this book teaches."

    "I love Game of Thrones, and I like the writings of George R. R. Martin. I wanted to know more about him and his books, and Wikipedia didn't have enough information. That's when I happened upon this site through a Google search. This site has all the info I would ever want, and I frequently come back to read from this page."

    "Thank goodness for Tower of the Hand! George R. R. Martin's 'A son of Ice and Fire' is complicated enough to follow; the books have an excess of intricate details spilling over. Even the show's require you to remember minuscule events from time to time. This allows me the ability to have the information at my fingertips, and keep up with any confusion I might encounter."

    "Since it has been becoming more popular, I wanted to learn more about Game of Thrones. While looking for resources to learn about Game of Thrones, I came across "A Feast of Ice and Fire: The Official Game of Thrones Companion Cookbook" and this book is great. It has a bunch of recipes from the show where you can make them in real life. Although it doesn't teach me a lot, it's a very well-done book."

    "It's a quick, entertaining 7 minute guide to Game of Thrones. As a newbie, I found it interesting, but also very confusing. It's a good start to understanding the series, but would need to be considered just a starting point and not all one would need to understand GoT."

    "You can easily catch up on highlights from the show on this Youtube page. They have loads of content to check out. It may not be the best source for learning about every little detail, but you can get a good idea of things you may have missed out on or go back and watch some of your favorite clips."

    "Really wanting to learn more about Game of Thrones, I started searching for resources to learn about Game of Thrones. I came across this Youtube channel called, "GoT Academy". This had very interesting videos with very unique viewpoints about the show. It really gives you a new perspective and teaches you a lot."

    "This is a great one-stop-shop resource to learn about Game of Thrones. I read numerous character entries and various locations and battles from this Wiki. I feel that I learned more about Game of Thrones in the half hour I spent reading from this Wiki than I did search about GoT on Google."

    "Game of Thrones is complicated. There are hundreds of characters, tons of history, and tons of relationships. It can be hard to follow, especially from year to year or even week to week. For the rest of us, there's the Viewer's Guide - get the most out of this spectacular show with clear and informative explanations of the settings, characters, histories, and extra information. A must-have!"

    "This blog is a great resource for finding more about Game of Thrones. It has information about the politics and history in the books and shows, and discusses how things work in Westeros and Essos. The blog features a very in-depth analysis of individual chapters and characters, and is very detailed. The blog also recommends other blogs and websites for even more information, and is overall a great way to learn more about Game of Thrones."

    "I quickly ran into a problem while watching Game of thrones, and even more so when I started reading the books. There is tooo many characters to learn about, too many houses to remember and just so much important information to keep track of. There were scenes that I knew were big, but their grandiosity fell flat because I didn't recognize the key characters at first (the Red Wedding for example, who is this Bolton guy?). After searching a bit, I found this Guide and it helped incredibly with my understanding on connected details. It was also very easy to look up things I wasn't sure about. Most importantly it had pictures of faces and who's related to who. This was key, since most of the drama is family & Royal houses drama. Now I can quickly use this resource so every big scene that makes me think 'What just happened to Whom?', I can quickly look it up and be in the know!"

    "It's a good app if you want in depth information of the Game of Thrones. There are so many maps and you can follow different characters. You can spend hours on this app. Down load app is free, but there are so many in app purchase if you want to see maps and such. It's too expensive to me as each in app purchase is $3-$4. If you are a huge fan and don't mind spending some money, you will like this."
