    "I was given this as a gift to read by a friend who's been trying to get me into Game of Thrones. I was reluctant to read it just because I'm not that into the story. It is an interesting source of facts. I would recommend if you're already into Game of Thrones.

    "Anyone who is obsessed with Game of Thrones knows how difficult it can be to keep up with all of the family connections and the characters that seem to be introduced just to drop dead a scene later and even how the world exists around them. I've read the books and have a good grasp on this, but my husband does not. I ended up buying this book for him to read through to sort of boost his knowledge and trivia on the series before the new season comes out and ended up reading it myself. It introduced me to a lot of things I simply didn't know before hand!"

You can spend hours on this app. Down load app is free, but there are so many in app purchase if you want to see maps and such. It's too expensive to me as each in app purchase is $3-$4.

    "I quickly ran into a problem while watching Game of thrones, and even more so when I started reading the books. There is tooo many characters to learn about, too many houses to remember and just so much important information to keep track of. There were scenes that I knew were big, but their grandiosity fell flat because I didn't recognize the key characters at first (the Red Wedding for example, who is this Bolton guy?). After searching a bit, I found this Guide and it helped incredibly with my understanding on connected details. It was also very easy to look up things I wasn't sure about. Most importantly it had pictures of faces and who's related to who. This was key, since most of the drama is family & Royal houses drama. Now I can quickly use this resource so every big scene that makes me think 'What just happened to Whom?', I can quickly look it up and be in the know!"

    Bran makes Aerys Targaryen go mad

    This Game of Thrones fan theory states that Bran Stark is the one who causes Aerys Targaryen to become The Mad King. This happens when he realizes that others can hear him during his visions from the past, but doesn't understand that they cannot fully understand him. He attempts to reason with Aerys, but the King only hears whispers and is eventually driven mad by it.

I would highly recommend http://gameofthrones.wikia.com/wiki/Game_of_Thrones_Wiki."
