How do i find or read sample chapters?

78 posts in this topic

The availability depends on the country and on the type of device (Apple, Android) that you use. On Android it is only available in the US, if I recall correctly.

Is there an update available? The Tyrion chapter was released by app only, IIRC, so that should be in there anyhow...

There are updates available for the first five books, but not TWOW... how do you find any of the chapters?

I don't have the app myself, with Android out of the US, but they are supposed to be in the menu...

They are all available for free in the drop down menu under the "excerpts" section"

Hi All,



This news might only have an interest for the French reader, but a French magazine (Lire - Hors-Série Game of Thrones) have included a translation into French of the "Mercy" chapter in their magazine.



I can make a scan of this translation (if it is authorised in this forum) or recommend you to read the magazine (the interview with GRRM is very interesting).

Can you link us to or provide a translation of the interview?

Dear wise folk of the forum:

Does anyone know if the sample chapter on the app is Tyrion I or II? The app says I, but this site says it's II. And could someone confirm that these are the chapters that are released, or at least, are the actual text (I'm assuming Victarion's not from memory, but was actually recorded?)

Victarian I:

Alayne I:

Arianne I: On the app

Barristan I: On the app

Theon: On the app

Mercy: On the app

Tyrion (I? II?) On the app

And so Barry II, Tyrion (I? II?), Arianne II, are all chapters that have been read and so there's only second hand descriptions of, right? And that's all of them?

ETA: or hold on, is this Arianne II?

ETA2: Nope, Arianne I again. The app version just has an additional bit at the beginning so I thought they were different chapters.

The following chapters have been released:

  • Theon I
  • Arianne I
  • Barristan I
  • Tyrion II (listed as "Tyrion I" in A World of Ice and Fire)
  • Mercy 
  • Alayne I

 

Further, an Aeron Greyjoy, Victarion Greyjoy, additional Arianne Martell chapter (Arianne II), an additional Barristan Selmy chapter (Barristan II), and an additional Tyrion chapter (Tyrion I) have been confirmed, and all but the Aeron chapter have been read at cons (though the Victarion chapter was read only partially).

 

The Tyrion chapter on the app is Tyrion II, where the fighting begins. Short summary-like descriptions and discussion of Tyrion I can be found here.

Is the Alayne chapter still out there, now that Alayne II has replaced it? I can only find links to Martin's site, but the text is copyable, surely someone nabbed it...?

I believe George is reading a Damphair chapter now at Balticon, called The Forsaken. He's said it's similar in tone to Ramsay Bolton. Don't think he's read this before?

I came here to say that. No, he hasn't read this before.

Nope. He hasn't. There is a transcription of the chapter on LastHearth.

Is the app only available in certain regions? Because I'm South African and it's not allowing me access.

That is the case, if I'm not mistaken. It also depends on the device (with Apple products having access in more areas than Android products, IIRC). At least, that's how I experienced it before.last year, though, it became available for me, so perhaps availability will be enhanced again, soon? You can always hope..

Thanks. Sadly, mine is an android device. But thanks anyway.
