If you downloaded this book, its probably because you read the first one and like the story. Dotrice is an awesome narrator. I've only recently started listening to audiobooks, but he's the best I've heard. So many characters, each gets their own voice.
Yes. It just keeps you intrested from start to finish.
The twists and turns.
Yes the first book. They both are great.
Yes but it is too long to do so.
This is a great series.
George RR Martin created an alternate universe and populated it with believable characters. Each chapter is written from a different character's point of view. The result is well rounded fantasy world.
I'm a retired nurse and my husband owns a machining company. We live in a small town 30 miles East of San Diego. We love to cruise!
I enjoyed this book a bit more than the first and I'm actually liking Roy Dotrice's voice more. I still get lost amongst the seemingly hundreds of different characters though! I feel I need a book to explain the book!
I don't mind getting stuck in traffic...as long as I have an audio book playing.
The flow...strong, facinating story line. This book flowed seamlessly from the last one.
I love the story. I found myself sitting on the edge of my seat MANY times as with the first book. BUT-and this is not meant as a direct comment on the narrator himself but it was very difficult to listen to all the characters being made to sound like pirates and sneaky leprechauns. I really REALLY wish they had chosen someone else for these books. I will keep listening because they are SO fantastic but I will just have to keep asking "OMG! What were they thinking????"
George Martin has created a world vibrant and indepth. The World of the Seven Kingdoms seem to draw you in and keep you intranced with each character. The narrator is good at story telling giving each character a unique voice (even though some characters sound like pirates...lol). I recommend anyone who has a love of fantasy to listen to this audiobook.
Most memorable moment was when Theon Greyjoy, took winterfell and
never heard any of Roy Doltrice's other performances, but this one is great making me laugh at the way he protrays certain characters
I'm not sure if the time was well spent. It was 37 hours and 12 minutes and probably 30 hours were descriptions of battles! Clash of Kings is a good name for this book. Everyone and their dog claimed they were king and then proceeded to kill everyone else in the most horrible ways possible. I enjoyed the first book more because I felt it had more story lines and was less violent. The story is probably representative of what it was like, but the long gruesome descriptions of every battle was tiring. I was listening to the book and basically stopped paying attention when a battle started and would only tune back in after the battle was over. All I needed to know was who won and who survived.
Tyrion and Arya
Maybe. This book has lots of characters but many of the characters sounded alike and at times I couldn't tel who was speaking. I felt the women's voices were not well done. I think they should have used several narrators.
DUH It is an HBO series
The whole experience was great. The in depth story, the twists and the individual life each character brings was all around great.
I have no other book in mind that encompasses the story of Mr. Martin.
Roy brings a new light to the story. His cove of the characters brings out the individuality of each. He is a very good performer that deserves a thumbs up.
Deceit, sex and much more.
Love the book, love the performer and love Martins ability to captivate everyone who reads or listens to his novel.
Yes, in fact I am listening to it a 2nd time.
So far nothing. I first book Game of Thrones and now Clash of Kings how very wonderful. Just love the story.
Both are wonderful
It caught me at the very first word
