It's hard to improve on a masterpiece such as the first book of the series "Game of Thrones". Nevertheless, the second volume, "A Clash of Kings", is just as good and even better than the first installment of this epic series.
love this author! love the plot, love the writing, love the pace, love the history, love the characters, love the action, love the love-story lol, and love love the narrator! can't wait for the next book!!!
Ive read allot of fantasy and this series is easily the best out there. Its has such a vast scope and so many characters that are so well developed. Some books only have a couple characters that the author has a hard time developing. Theres numerous characters in this series that are so well developed. You truly care about them and hate their enemies.
I love George R.R. Martin, but i'll probably avoid Roy Dotrice. I think he reads well, but his voice and the "voices" he does are often not distinct enough from each other or fitting to the characters. It sounds like everyone in the book is about 85 and with the same annoying sound and adds absolutely nothing to the story. Honestly, I found it hard to keep my attention - and this is a series where that should be impossible.
G.R.R.M. continues his epic fantasy series with no remorse, delivering a story that intricately unwinds with an unparalleled ferocity and devotion to the craft. Each character is perfectly introduced and developed, and the entire volume progresses with careful precision, winding action and narrative together in a fury. Entertaining from start to finish, and more than capable of drawing me in as a reader (listener).
Daenarys' steady understanding of her power and virtue as future Queen of the Realm
The Battle of Blackwater Bay
Humor where it counts, dramatic throughout the rest, and thoroughly captivating with each passing chapter.
The legacy strengthens as all characters face more difficult challenges than before.
a very long audio book. but awesome, a great job of narrative. almost closely by the TV series. sometimes I visualize the scenes. I only wish that the series was as long. never wanting it to end.
