Great story with many surprising twists! The narrator was entertaining but was unable to portray the younger characters very well. He did an excellent job with the many older characters though.
I listen to quite a few audiobooks given my daily commute is around two hours. This audiobook definitely lives up to the expectations I had before I started listening. The audio quality is excellent, the characters are diverse, and the plot is enticing. I wish I had picked this audiobook up years ago.
it's amazing how detailed the writer is, just binge watched the show and this just got me more excited for each new episode. the dialog is awesome and if reading this before watching the show this is the first season of the show almost exactly.
Love this series, but the narrator can't seem to pronounce anything consistently: Winterfell/Winterfall, Jeffery/Geoffrey, Petar/Peter to name a few. Pick a pronunciation and stick with it.
I think it's a great story and I love the man who reads it. He does all these different voices for different characters really well. It's quite nice and I find myself listening with a child like wonder!!!
I really enjoyed this first installment of the series. The narrator did a great job with all of the different characters. I do have to say, as a person who watched the show first, I'm impressed at how little was left out in the screen adaptation. The book still offered some viewpoints lost in the show and I'm glad I took the time on this listen.
Fantastic story with few parallels. Compelling characters with deep and well thought out plots. And it is just as unforgiving with who stays and who goes as the rumors tell. Worth the listen.
