I enjoyed the performance. The reader did a great job getting you into the story. He more than just read, his reading was shaped by the lines. He panted as a character ran up the stairs, whimpered as a girl cried and spoke.... Excellent job
This is the best fantasy novel that I have had the opportunity to enjoy. Game of Thrones has everything you could ever want out of a book. You will not regret taking the time to listen to this story. There is graphic content so if you aren't looking to expand your child's vocabulary, then use headphones while listening.
It was just this past month that I finally popped my GoT cherry. I picked up the book to get me home on a six-hour drive. After that, every bit of spare time I can get I'm listening to this book! Commutes flew by while hearing the tales of the Starks, Lannisters, Targaryens, and all the rest. Roy Dotrice has the perfect voice for reading this book and really carried all the different chapters and characters well.
Thoroughly engrossing from start to finish. One is swept up in a whirlwind of adventure and intrigue. Roy Dotrice's narration brings the characters to life in a way which brings you directly into the story. Really really really enjoyable.
Great start to a series, I look forward to purchasing more of these. Although I wish there was a little more variation when changing to different characters in the story line, other than that it was a good book.
