Publisher's Summary

A brutal warrior, Kratos is a slave to the gods of Olympus. Plagued by the nightmares of his past and yearning for freedom, the Ghost of Sparta would do anything to be free of his debt to the gods. He is on the verge of losing all hope when the gods give him one last task to end his servitude. He must destroy Ares, the god of war. But what chance does a mere mortal have against a god?
Armed with the deadly chained Blades of Chaos, guided by the goddess Athena, and driven by his own insatiable thirst for vengeance, Kratos seeks the only relic powerful enough to slay Ares---a quest that will take him deep into the mysterious temple borne by the Titan Cronos! From the black depths of Hades to the war-torn city of Athens to the lost desert beyond, God of War sheds a brutal new light on the best-selling video game and on the legend of Kratos.

Fantastic story and amazing narration

I have listened to this book multiple times and I have never even played the game! I love the narration by Stephen Hoye and the storyline itself. It is a wonderful light listen while going on about your day. I highly recommend it!!

A great book

I think both fans of the God of War series and people who have never played the game before will enjoy this book. It fleshes out the character of Kratos more fully. Although it does not stick strickly to the exact events of the game I think this is a point in it's favor, since most people who buy this book will be people who have also played the game they will most likely not just want to listen to a description of the events of the game.
As for the narration, I think that Stephen Hoye does a very good job. I only have a few small complaints that have to do with putting the wrong sort of emotion in Kratos' voice, but these instances are few and far between and all in all they don't really hinder the immersion.
