Summary

With dogs, wolves, ravens, blood flies, and more, animal symbolism is endlessly significant in Game of Thrones. Why does Daenerys receive magical eggs? What does a hand symbolize or a horn? There are meaningful towers and water gardens stretching from the pyramids of Meereen to the infamous Iron Throne. Meanwhile George R. R. Martin's characters chomp on bloody beef, blood oranges, red wine, beets, and pomegranates between the inevitable bloodbaths. The intricately crafted world of the books and the show have endless depth. It's all revealed in this companion for fans of every flavor.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

This book helps piece things together!

What made the experience of listening to Symbols in Game of Thrones the most enjoyable?

I love GOT and this book pointed out many things I missed when I was reading them.

Have you listened to any of Ioanna Malandrenias’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Not yet, but I would definitely check out another book narrated by her. She had a good narrating tone and the production was stellar.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I had to take breaks as there was a lot of information happening.
