My brother has almost all the Behind the Story books because he and his wife are avid readers and he lent me this one since I am such a Clancy fan...

Re-read the original book RIGHT AFTER reading this book!
The original book suddenly became much richer and more enticing after I finished this Behind the Story, I HAD to open up the original book once more! Highly recommended!

SAMPLE EXCERPT:

“What was the inspiration behind the creation of this book?”

For George R.R. Martin and maybe other writers who wanted to write the best book of his life, it all started with a vivid vision. He had shifted his life from television to prose, where he planned to make a novel that will envision his big dreams of a cast and a setting at his talent’s expense. The initial plan was a science fiction entitled Avalon, but the vision took over, which was composed of dire wolf pups in winter and a boy who witnessed a man’s decapitation. Since writing is mostly on his subconscious level, George R.R. Martin worked on his new discovery unraveling the depth of the solitary vision which eventually gave birth to, the first novel of the A Song of Ice and Fire series entitled A Game of Thrones. (2) His love for fantasy and J.R.R. Tolkien’s books made him go through, his inspiration to some elements of the series. He also found the disadvantage of cutting down when working on television shows a milestone, for he believed that his stories are diminished in meaning when something is left out just because of budget constraints. (3)
A Game of Thrones was published in 1996, one of the seven proposed books in A Song of Ice and Fire series, which was originally a trilogy sold in 1994 after careful planning. (4)The storyline grew out of unexpected circumstances, with the lengthy manuscript insufficient for a three book series. He named the series with the words Ice and Fire since there are two elements in each character; they may be the cold ones or the blazing dragons behind the wall, and both parties are aiming for power.

Don't miss out! It's highly recommended.

if you're a real literature junkie or a diehard fan of the novel (I am both) it's really a must read. Highly recommended.
