Kudos and fanfare to George R.R. Martin for an especially refreshing fantasy series that will echo through the generations of geekery for years to come!
In a Clash of Kings, the second installment in the series of A song of Fire and Ice. George R.R. Martin outdoes himself yet again. Enthralling readers and breathes life and hope yet again back into the realms of the genre of Fantasy.
I personally am looking to more than a select few characters stories with baited breath as these heroes and villains rise and fall in this whirlwind of politics, war, fantasy, and intrigue.
of all the favorable and unsavory characters unite and, or back-stab each other in the worst of betrayals in this battle of wits and physical warfare. I cannot honestly say who I wish will win in the end. all I know is to quote the cliche that Cersei Lannister spits out from her poisonous mouth and drops like ominous stones towards Ned Stark in the HBO Series in season one when you play the game of thrones you win or you die! and all of us just have to sit back and let it play out and root for who we want not killed off in the worst of ways.
Picking one would be a feat within itself and I am not one for divulging too much info and ruining books for others.
Voices and, which include too high falsettos that allow you discern different characters. and after awhile I would have to say this comes in handy and very much so as George R. R. Martin in my eyes is notorious for having a lot of characters in this series.
If I had, had the time to dedicate to listening to this in a straightshot, LOL I would have!
The HBO Series is worth a viewing and I would go as far as to say coughing up a hefty amount of Money to purchase as well.
i love to read an amazing book that will take me out of this world and bring me to another sometimes we just need to use our imagination!
it was my kind of book its thrilling and exciting, this book ranks in the middle for me some times i wish they could of hired two narrators
any part with the Dire wolfs, its just a special bond that the writer shares so well
I really enjoy this series. You really have to pay attention because there are so many characters, especially with names that are similar. I also really enjoy the fact that George R.R. Martin changes things up quite often, killing main characters off, etc. Cannot wait to start the next book!
Everything, it keeps drawing you back in, the books are well written and characters are just out standing
All of them
Those HO yah moments and HO no moments
Vary good read
A plot that actually leads the reader somewhere.
Valar morghulis. Mysterious now, but when you learn what it means you'll wunder why you fell for such an obviuos ploy to keep you buying books.
Anger. Martin is a sadist, making you love someone, torturing them, then making them disappear or die.
O.K., so you ignored my warning about this series of cheap hooks, cliff hangers and gimmicks designed to keep you reading until the end of time. This is the high watermark of the series, in that you have invested yourself in characters you like and there aren't more developed plots than you can follow. You are being set up. Everyone and everything you love will be taken away and replaced by excruciating blather about court gossip, clothes and historical trivia in this alternate reality. Martin is a cheat. No plot line will pay off and it will only leave you frustrated.
See the south park parody of Martin; it is spot on.
Staying in touch with Game of Throne
John, strength,honor, accepts his status without complaint and serves mankind.
Cannot do a women's part. Characters redundant
yes, if only to get to book 3!
the final scene between Jaqen H'gar and Ari was a close second to Daenerys in the House of Dust. So cool!
I felt like this book was a filler to get to the 3rd. Lots of story setting for a larger payoff later.
Another great audiobook! This series is excellent. I am only hoping it can keep up the momentum. I have been let down so many times with other series as you get to the end. So far this series is getting better. I would think almost anyone can get into this series unless violence is a turn off. Off to book three.
A reader who ran out of time to physically read the book. I'm into sci-fi, self-help and biography books
The performance and the excellent writing.
How every detail was fleshed out and is open to a lot of interpretations
When Arya served the Weasel Soup
Yes. I even wished my commute was longer.
The writing and story were fantastic!
Audible needs to break up the chapters at the appropriate chapter breaks! In the first book, each electronic chapter corresponded to the actual book chapter, but here it doesn't. Electronic chapters end in the middle of sentences, and it makes for a horrible listening experience. For such an expensive audio book by such a reputable company, you would expect this to not be an issue. It makes navigating through the book horrendous.
