George RR Martin has been outdoing himself with Game of Thrones content for fans.

Rather than just providing run-of-the-mill audiobooks of his A Song of Ice and Fire series, Martin has instead been sharing audiobooks of specific chapters all from one point of view.

Megafans will know each of the books in the series, beginning with A Game of Thrones, is written from the perspective of different characters, which different chapters seeing specific characters telling their stories, or version of events.

There are many POV (point of view) characters in the series, with the most prominent one being Tyrion Lannister, played by Peter Dinklage in the HBO series Game of Thrones.

So, in order for fans to remember the POVs as they are written, Martin has been releasing special audio snippets of each POV speaking, asking fans to vote on who they want to hear next.

On Martin’s Twitter page, he wrote: “We’re revisiting some of our favourite scenes from the ASoIaF series through the audiobooks!
