Well, what hasn't been written about this book yet? I'm at a loss for new words. Entertaining, fantastical, gut-wrenching! So easy to get lost in this other world. . . when you raise your head in your own life, you wonder where you are.
This book has multiple story lines. I started listening to it only during driving. Then when I got to my destination it would be 5 minutes more, then 10 minutes more. At 20 minutes sitting in the car, I decided to take it with me. Now I'm listening at work, walking with my ear buds in. It's such a complex story. I just love it.
When the Lanistar's beheaded Edard and what is happening to Areia.
His many voices for the characters. It's unnerving when he does the slobber and spiter's voices. I imagine they have to break to clean up after that.
Danny and CalDrogo's relationship and his death.
You just cannot go wrong with this. I really didn't think I'd like it and I'm glad I was very wrong. Be careful, you'll get hooked. I'm on the 2nd book now and it only gets better.
I feel obliged to buy every single audiobook Roy Dotrice narrates. Incredible performance, many variations that make it easy to picture the scenes. Amazing experience, I loved that this was my first audiobook
You always hear the book is better than the movie/show. It's true. Although reading the book has made me appreciate the series even more; their choice of who plays the characters; and the actors abilities to portray the characters so well.
There were some characters I liked before I read the book, and I know them better now and no longer like them.
It's a long book, but doesn't seem long at all once you get started.
I didn't think I'd like the narrator, however he grew on me and I quite enjoyed him once my ears adjusted to his voice and style.
I'm starting book 2. If you aren't sure about this book, just spend the credit, you won't be disappointed.
Several names are mispronounced which I find unacceptable, did anyone listen to this before it was put out for sale? bran becomes Brian, Arya becomes Anya and Joffrey becomes Jeffrey.... The performer also often mixes up his voices for the characters, and makes some people Scotish for some reason
