As many know, Game of Thrones takes its story from many influences: the War of the Roses, Catherine de Medici, Norse and Celtic myth as well as medieval ballads. Modern readers find parallels with politics, the corporate world, and conflict in Iraq and Afghanistan. Will the story end like Lord of the Rings or completely invert it? How about King Arthur?
Pop culture and parody author Valerie Estelle Frankel examines the sources and predicts a Game of Thrones ending for each one. What will the Ragnarok ending look like? Or the Narnia ending? Who will live, who will die, and how goofy can the war of ice and fire possibly get?

VE Frankel's best audible title on Game of Thrones

no clear spoilers here. many potential plot paths explored, but none seem to capture the magic. some of them are very funny, but implausibe, many of them plausible but uninspired.

more importantly is being able to discover all the inspirations. G RR Martin is definitly derivative with his writing. always paying homage to something or someone. i personally love this about Martin. and i think having all these connections to history, myth, culture, and politics is refreshing and is the main reason the world of ice and fire is soo emersive

Same as previous books, now with a silly preface!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Someone who didn't read the other 2 similarly themes books the author has released in the last calendar year.

Any additional comments?

Look, I understand everyone is waiting for a new GRRM book, and I found her first book marginally insightful, but it's just getting a little gratuitous at this point. Read Frankel's first book on the subject, read actual books on War of the Roses, etc. or just wait for Winds of Winter.
