The story speaks for itself at this point. what makes the story come alive is the performance of the reader. imagine having to come up with a voice for every character! And he does! My one little, nitpicky issue is the way he preforms Drogo's voice. I know...it's a dumb complaint, but for whatever reason it was like nails on a chalkboard! Other than that minor thing it is incredible. One of my favorite things that George R.R. does in this book series, is how he writes each chapter from a certain character's point of view. I absolutely love that particular aspect of the books...along with the superb story, of course!
I am not a big fan of sci-fi or fantasy or other genres of the like. However, I had tried to read this book once and found the story interesting, but I didn't have the patience for the pages. I thoroughly enjoyed listening! The reader does an excellent job, and the story is full of strange twists and amazing characters. I am looking forward to listening to the second book.
I haven't seen the show. I haven't read the book. this is by far the best narrator I've come across and at 34 hours long, I was hesitant, but I would listen to this in bed before I went to sleep and it was like my own personal movie. there wasn't even any confusion about who said what and who was speaking which can happen in audio books because you can't look back over the sentence. as far as the story, it got really good for me half way in but I expected that. I can't buy these books at $30 each but I will at least use a credit on one more and stalk this narrator
I can't tell if it is the narration or the story, but I didn't engage in this book until the very end. It's a 17 hour hook for the next book. Watching the series now.
Always in touch with my inner child. Crazy about alternate realities and science fiction. Oh , I am also pretty stoked by books where people get pregnant. Very loyal to good authors but always looking for another to add to my list
Wide sweeping story with a richness and depth not often seen. Readers beware, no character is sacred. No character is spared.
