After many of the chapter breaks, it repeats the last several seconds of the previous chapters. The 4th section is by far the worst. It repeats several entire chapters from section 3.
I am a proud Mexican woman that loves words and reading/listening to books. I also believe that only through knowledge can we achieve progress.
Book I is my favorite book of all of them. The narration in this book is fairly consistent however it does waver a little between pronunciations of some names.
After Larry McMurtry stories.
John Having to deal with secound rate ststus in a family but coping well
yes but way to long
No. But the voice in my head is hard to beat ;) I would highly recommend the audio though.
This is the best series I've found since the "Dark Tower Series".
I love his rich accents.
The whole book is full of twists, turns and surprises.
Fantastic fantasy novel
It's action-packed, but not busy. There's enough happening to constantly keep my interest, but not enough to leave me confused.
Great story teller
Winter is coming.
Unfortunately, I must give a low rating for the performance, as it's obvious that the book was ripped from a CD without much care to properly convert it to the format Audible uses. For example, every 60-80 minutes, there's a pause and then the narrator repeats the last sentence (a telltale sign that it was a CD change). I hope Audible will fix this, as it's below the quality standard I've come to expect from the audio books here, and far below the standard seen in Audible Frontiers productions.
One of the best books I've read this year.
Reminded me of The Stand, or Lonesome Dove. A sweeping epic with many characters to learn.
His accents and voices bring the characters to life.
Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum
This was not what I expected. This is on of the few books I've gotten that actually put me to sleep.
I have always read the book 1st, then watched the "movie". Not this time~ Great narration and insight into the characters! Even if you have already seen the HBO series seasons 1 & 2 so far, I highly recommend getting the book. I was not disappointed! Epic!
We're looking forward to hearing the other books in the series!
Ned Stark - he was the most righteous
The one where the rude Targarian was killed when bubbling gold was poured over his head.
It did make us gasp in horror a couple of times.
Very engaging book!
I have recommend this book to friends. I have purchased the entire series to date, and at the time of this review, I am halfway through book 2 (and loving it). However, take heed of the reviews when purchasing this series. This is a great EPIC in the medieval/fantasy genre. It contains graphic depictions of rape, murder, sex, incest and more political intrigues than I can keep track of. HBO, not Disney turned it into a serious, yet some listeners were expecting Harry Potter.
The massive story does start off a little slow, but it is laying the ground work and introducing a vast ensemble of characters. Once the story takes off, it kept me glued to the edge of the throne until the very end. I can honestly say, I have never read a book with this many central characters in my life. On of the complaints I have noticed in some reviews is of main characters dying off. The beauty of these books is that no one is safe.
The narration of this book was also very impressive. For the 5% of the listeners that gave
Roy Dotrice a less than favorable review, image trying to a voice to such a vast array of characters. Mr. Dotrice does a tremendously outstanding job of giving a voice to 7 main characters and countless minor characters.
This audiobook lives up to it's great reviews
