The devious Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish proved once again this week that scheming is an art form he has mastered. Game of Thrones fans can listen to Littlefinger narrate Sun Tzu’s influential military classic, The Art of War, exclusively on Audible.
Actor Aidan Gillen, who co-stars in Game of Thrones as Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish, the calculating Lord Protector of the Vale and former Master of Coin, brings his voice to Sun Tzu’s ancient Chinese military treatise, giving Game of Thrones’ fans the perfect primer on war as season 5 heats up. Get ready, because, “when you play the game of thrones, you win or you die.” The Art of War narrated by the inimitable Aidan Gillen is available exclusively on Audible starting today.
Known as one of the definitive works on military tactics and strategy, The Art of War continues to have a profound impact on military thinking across the globe and its teachings have been employed in other fields such as business, politics, sports and law. Gillen, who co-stars in the hit HBO series as the manipulative Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish, is a natural fit to narrate this influential classic.
“This was a fascinating book to narrate, with surprisingly apt insights into modern life on every page,” said Gillen. “And as an artistic endeavor, The Art of War was a natural progression from the Machiavellian strategist I play on television. It turns out Sun Tzu and Littlefinger have a lot in common.”
