      I would recommend this book, more to fans of the television show over those who have read all books. If yo have read the series you might not enjoy reading simplified description of the character’s background stories; that you already know in more intimate detail. That being said, I bought the book anyway because, I enjoy reading about the filming locations and the costume design. -For fans of the TV show- 4/5*-For fans of A Song of Ice and Fire- 3/5*- Your better of reading an Untold History [...]

      Geweldig boek voor de echte Game of Thrones fanaat. Binnenkort vertel ik er meer over op mijn blog!

      Let me put on my Captain Obvious cape and state well, the obvious - the book is simply beautiful. No coffee table is too good for this one. You have to give credit where credit is due, everything that has to do with Game of Thrones (the novels, the show, the production, the acting, the budget and even these "making of" books) is just Quality.Not only is this book easy on the eyes, it's also a nice tight summary of seasons 3 and 4. When I watch the series in real time, it is so saturated with cha [...]

      This was another brilliant companion book. Most of the Houses and characters had already been covered in the first book, so this one focused a lot more on locations and key moments from the TV show. There were many new locations visited in seasons three and four and there seemed to be plenty of significant moments and it was very interesting finding out the background details on how they were created and filmed. Again, there were insightful interviews with the cast and crew and of course, lots o [...]

      This isn't an encyclopedia of the world like The World of Ice & Fire so don't go into this looking for some expansive backstory. This is a behind-the-scenes view of the, arguably, two best seasons of the show, complete with cast interviews, insight from the crew, GRRM's views and summaries of especially important/impressive episodes.There was the occasional "A brief history of", but it is that, brief. It's a very condensed version of mythology and history that can serve as a nice way to refr [...]

      This was a book that I brought to feed my Game of Thrones fixation. I enjoyed it thoroughly. Snippets on costumes, locations and sets are interspersed with brief backstories on certain houses and characters. What I found most interesting were how the actors interpreted the thoughts, mechanizations and actions of their characters during some memorable scenes. A rich, colourful keepsake for all we Seven Kingdom fans.

    8. Hannah (Broc's Bookcase) on said:

      I've never reviewed Non Fiction before so this one was a totally new experience for me. I really love 'behind the scenes' books and have spent many many hours reading through my Harry Potter one, so thought I couldn't go wrong with a Game of Thrones one as I love the TV series so much!Firstly, this book is gorgeous. When I signed up for a review copy of this book no way did I know I was going to be getting something so beautiful. A stunning hardback with padded and embossed covers this is one bo [...]

      TV is a complex business to say the least, but in the case of a show like Game of Thrones (GOT) the complexities are magnified. From the use of computer generated images to the various locations and huge cast managing this behemoth must be a difficult task. Yet from the forward of Inside Game of Thrones by David Benioff and D.B.Weiss you get the idea that this is as much as passion project as it is an ordeal. They (I say they as they are always credited together in their responses) chat casually [...]

    10. K. on said:

      As with the previous volume, I remain most interested in those segments showing a behind-the-scenes look. At costuming, set design, scene construction, what-have-you.Even if it's just a promo still for an episode, I can see so much more of the fine-work on the clothing (such as the hand-painted animals on Ygritte's wildling coat) that gets washed-out by the time I see it on-screen.We do get to read/see a bit about the VFX process for realizing the direwolves, Unsullied army, dragons, and giants. [...]

    11. Gerhard on said:

      I love ‘making of’ books. Rather than detract from the magic, I think it enhances one’s viewing experience if you know how much work and effort goes into putting a show like Game of Thrones onto the small screen, which of course is a show with a Big Screen sensibility.This book looks in particular at Seasons 3 and 4, which means that earlier season mainstays like the Iron Throne are not covered here. It is clear from the ebook that it is one of those sumptuous coffee-table tomes, in keepin [...]

    12. Sarah on said:

      Inside HBO's Game of Thrones: Seasons 3 & 4 is an absolutely stunning hardback with a beautiful padded and embossed cover that just begs to be picked up and read. As a huge fan of the TV series when I was offered a review copy of this book I couldn't say yes fast enough. I have to admit that I've not read the first book yet but this book is so fantastic that I've now ordered my copy and I'm looking forward to reading all about seasons 1 & 2.This book is jam packed with information about [...]

      I blew through this in one sitting. I love behind the scenes stuff, especially the making of the costumes. There is a lot of extra material that is not mentioned in the extras of the DVD/ Blurays. A must read for fans of HBO's Game of Thrones TV show.I got a good chuckle when they asked the actors who would they choose to kill next in Game of Thrones. Here are my favorite responses:Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister): Littlefinger. He has to go - he's so oily. He is like a gas you can't see or touch [...]

    14. Melissa on said:

      As with the companion book for seasons one and two, Inside HBO's Game of Thrones is absolutely gorgeous. It's a big, thick, heavy book that would look fantastic on any coffee table. The content felt a little more lacking than its predecessor, but I'm not sure if that's actually the case, or if I just wasn't quite as satisfied with it. Don't get me wrong, it made for marvellous company while I was tucked up ill in bed - disappearing to Westeros was a lovely escape. I just came away with the sense [...]

    16. Elizabeth on said:

      This book is definitely aimed at fans of the TV series. It focuses on seasons 3 and 4 and is a follow up to the first Inside Game of Thrones book. If you’ve read the first one you know what to expect here. If you haven’t read the first one - this is your typical “making of” book. It contains various sections on costuming, filming on location, and things of that nature. I’m a musician, so the highlight of the book for me was a short section dedicated to composer Ramin Djawadi that even [...]

    17. Alexander on said:

      The thing I love most about this book is the images and everything the actors tell us. All the juicy things about which actor did what and where, and how they felt while filming a certain scene, is greatly enjoyable. It's also, of course, amazing to read what they think about their characters. This book is certainly an enjoyable read for whoever likes the show.The only reason it gets four stars is because I read a Dutch translation(it was gifted to me that way) and it was quite shoddily translat [...]

    18. Inês Beato on said:

      Este segundo volume, que aborda as 3ª e 4ª temporadas, mantém a qualidade do anterior, mas foca-se mais noutros aspectos do que propriamente na análise das personagens, visto que grande parte delas já tinha sido apresentada no primeiro livro. Neste surgem explicações sobre como algumas das melhores cenas foram criadas, como o casamento vermelho ou a morte de Joffrey, por exemplo, bem como análise ao vestuário das várias casas, a elaboração dos guiões, etc, sempre repleto de fotos ex [...]

    19. Emily on said:

      Perfunctory. Actor comments convey the warmth and camaraderie of the set; designer comments and photographs reveal interesting detail often obliterated on screen by washed-out color processing, especially with the costumes. Who knew that the wildling costumes have Lascaux-style paintings on them?!And there is way way too much commentary from Alex Graves, director who Spiked Jaime in That Scene. Can't film/edit consent? GTFO.At best, a document of how an ambitious television adaptation has declin [...]

    20. Matthew Ciarvella on said:

      An excellent behind the scenes look at the show. The photography is gorgeous; my favorite part, however, is that a wide variety of crew members, directors, and actors are interviewed about various aspects of the production. This book is strictly for the hardcore fan, however; I doubt casual watchers will care about the loving detail that goes into realizing the world of Westeros. But for those of us who've been there since the beginning, this book really does show how much care goes into every d [...]

    21. Chris on said:

      I enjoy George RR Martin's Ice & Fire series, and thus, enjoy the HBO show as well. So, of course, I like getting the behind the scenes viewpoint on this work. This one covered Season's 3 and 4, which had some very big things happen. I haven't seen Season 5 as yet, and 6 is right around the corner for those with HBO, so will be another year before I get to read what I assume with be this book for Season's 5 & 6, but I'm sure it will be good. Just starting to deviate further from the book [...]

      Picking up a book for my daughters at the library I came across this. Didn't even realize it was just Seasons 3&4 (didn't look at the subtitle, just flipped it open, looked at a page or two and decided why not). Beautiful book with great pictures. Not a whole lot of insight into things, but small amounts here and there, with beautiful pictures and some nice quotes from the actors/producers/writers/designers/etc. A nice fun, easy, library find/read. I don't think I'd pay the 40$ price on the [...]

    23. Alex Andrasik on said:

      The first dozen or so pages had me worried I'd just bought an expensive recap of two seasons of television I'd already viewed several times. Fortunately, it soon settles into what we're looking for, a behind-the-scenes chronicle of the filming of GAME OF THRONES seasons 3 & 4, with plenty of production details and sometimes loony commentary by cast members on their characters' "motivation." Always a hoot. The number of little errors throughout it kind of disturbing; methinks someone was on a [...]

    24. Sebastian Zavala on said:

      An interesting look inside the making of seasons 3 and 4 of Game of Thrones. It may not be as in-depth as I may have wanted, but at least it touches many aspects of the production. From the writing of the script, to the shooting of the episodes, to some of the post production work, the book manages to convey a general idea of the effort it takes to make the show. And I also appreciated the comments written by some of the cast members, writers, directors, and even George R.R. Martin himself. It's [...]

    25. Rebecca on said:

      As with the previous 'Inside Game of Thrones', this one was awesome.I was surprised how interesting the Costume and Set parts were. I feel kinda bad now knowing how much thought they put into each costume, I should pay more attention to them in the future. Learning how they cast all the new characters and how they made 100 extras look like an 8000-strong unsullied army using VFX and CGI was also fascinating.

    26. Trish on said:

      This book is a must for any " GAME OF THRONES " fan. The front and back covers of this beautiful book is slightly padded. The pages are glossy, and have the most beautiful photos from seasons 3 & 4. You'll read quotes, inputs, discussions and feelings about scenes and clothing , just everything that makes the show This book is displayed on our coffee table. This would be a wonderful gift for any real fan of this "HBO" hit.

    27. Alex on said:

      This is a fantastic behind-the-scenes look of seasons 3 and 4 of Game of Thrones. The book itself is just gorgeous, and it's worth a read for the actor's interviews alone.I hope they do more of these!

    28. K. on said:

      Highly recommended for fans of the book series and the show. I really enjoyed the interviews with the cast and crew, the inside look at production, the artwork, and the back stories that provided a great recap of the story.
