Game of Thrones fans watch in delight as the epic battle of Lannister and Stark entangles the Seven Kingdoms. But only the sharpest notice how these houses echo Lancaster and York in the War of the Roses. Druids, Catholics, and even Zoroastrians wander through Westeros, reframing their religions for a new world of fantasy. But how medieval is Westeros? Did lady knights and pirates really battle across Europe? The audiobook Winter is Coming: Symbols and Hidden Meanings in A Game of Thrones explores all this and more, from the echoes of history to the symbols and omens our beloved characters.
Who is Jon Snow's mother and why is she a secret? What is Daenerys's real power, unknown even to her? Will these two characters share a destiny? Where is the red priestess's real Light bringer and when will it arrive? Through dreams and prophecies, imagery and allegory, the deepest secrets of the series unfold, in an exploration friendly to watchers and listeners alike.

Some sections are repeated. I appreciate that some events/themes may be relevant in several sections but repeating the points word for word is annoying.
Different voices are not really informative.
A mixture of "more informed" and "annoyed".
An interesting reminder of some points in advance of Series 4.

A Sony of Speculation
Less theorizing, speculation, conjecture, and second guessing the Author's intent as well the Film scriptwriters as she includes the HBO series.
Absolutely not I have been reading SF since 1955. And GRR Martin since 1986
You would have a better understanding and therefore enjoyment of the Ice and Fire books The authors conjectures only confuse an already complex storyline
I would not have accepted it for production
I am only surprised that the author did not include a reference to Area 51 in Nevada I believe her speculation is in the same category. I hope GRR Martin has a good laugh at these theories
