I enjoyed both the writing and the narration of A Game of Thrones (Book 1). Unfortunately, I found the writing in Book 2 to be clumsy and the narration was annoying. I think this book could have been excellent if it had been better edited. I had already bought Book 3 before listening to this one, but I'm no longer interested in listening to it after this experience.
book one was a masterful story, on par with Tolkien. book two devolved into the modern trash of descriptive sex and language that was unnecessary. still a great story but a disappointing change from the high standards of book one.
I'm loving Roy Dotrice so much I bought all the other audiobooks in this series, his voices and his variations of the characters are incredible.
This was a random choosing of the entire Game of Thrones series.
The last chapter when the boys separate, Bran and Rickon
There is a show on HBO :)
None, besides the fact that I will be looking into other narrations by Roy Dotrice.
I've read the book many times over and loved it, so I'm not going to spoil it for you. Let's talk about Roy Dotrice's narration instead. It. Is. Phenomenal. If you're familiar with the GoT universe, I beg you to curl up in a comfy chair (perhaps with a glass of wine if a flagon isn't handy), close your eyes, and imagine yourself as a lord or lady listening to your maester regale you with a tale of old. Roy's voice has that greatest of qualities: he can convey emotion with the subtlety of a seasoned bard, and his singing voice was delightfully pleasant. Don't just buy this audiobook to hear A Song of Ice and Fire: buy it for Roy's narration, and then hunt down other audiobooks he's done (I know I will).
