There is an island in the story of Game of Thrones, which is not much different in shape from the island of Rameswaram. This island belongs to a group of islands called the Iron Islands. The Iron Islands is the original home of the young man named Theon Greyjoy, youngest Son of Lord Balon. And Lord Balon is Lord over the Iron Islands. Theon will later become the heir to the Iron Islands after his two older Brothers were killed in Battle. The Battle was against the then King, Robert Baratheon of the Seven Kingdoms, to which the Iron islands belonged.
An Introduction to the Game of Thrones Epic Saga
The Games of Thrones is one the most wonderful stories ever to be told in our present era! It can be read from books, seen on television, or listened to from an audiobook on the internet, http://agameofthronesaudiobook.com. The game of thrones story spans many cultures, kingdoms, battles, wars, betrayals, love, hopes, and Disappointments. Very few stories have ever been so good. It does not matter if you are reading the book or listening the audiobook; you definitely will be spellbound. It is set in Europe of the middle ages, in a period when men wielded swords.
Theon Greyjoy, the youngster from the Iron Islands, is taken as a Ward to Lord Stark of Winterfell in the cold North. Lord Stark had fought alongside King Baratheon, and the King had loved his sister also, and even after her death. Lord Stark was, therefore, a very important personality in the great Land of the Seven Kingdoms. And whoever wanted to gain power will have to depose of not just the King and his men, but also the rest of the nobility, who were loyal to the King, especially Lord Eddard Stark.
The problem then is that nearly every nobleman and woman is somehow scheming and conniving to get rid of the King and seize power. This story showcases the depths of human greed and evil. The senseless quest of power, authority, and recognition for some people. You will be thrilled at how people you deemed quite innocent and noble will scheme behind the scenes in such inhumane manners. From the Queen, Robert Baratheon’s wife, who was engaged in incest with her brother, who again is the King’s chief Guard, and thereby birthing her brother’s Sons as heirs to the Kingdom. To an Enoch and member of the King’s council, who desires the throne for himself and engages in murdering the King!
If you are listening to a Game of Thrones Audiobook, chances are you will be lost in time, and will not want for it to end. You will be filled with disgust for the Queen when, for example, an honorable man like Lord Stark of Winterfell is falsely accused of wrongdoing and then imprisoned and later Beheaded, while his pre-teenage daughter Arya watches. But, you will also later be filled with satisfaction when this little girl starts to take revenge on all the people responsible for her family’s demise.
Book, Movie or Audiobook?
Another part of the story you definitely will never forget, is the murder attempt at Lady Stark and her Son, the King, at a wedding feast. Was it successful? This story is a wonderful thriller. Even Theon Greyjoy betrayed the family of Lord Stark, who had treated him so well. If you listen to a Game of Thrones Audiobook, you will literally, be “thrilled”. There is just not enough describing that can do justice to the Game of Thrones Saga; you have to experience it yourself. And while the books and the movies are great, the most wonderful way to experience this near-magical world and story may just be to sit down and relax, then close your eyes, and listen to this audiobook. You will be glad you did.
