Really enjoyed the performer he made the characters come alive. The story was captivating and held my attention. Found myself sitting in a parking lot waiting for a section of the book to complete.
So long that it's almost painful to get through. I am a huge fan of Game of Thrones on HBO, so I wanted to dive into the books behind the show. My advise to you: If you've seen the show, skip the books. A Song Of Ice And Fire is literally the exact same story, and you probably wouldn't get much more out of it.
While the story is great, the length is brutal and the narration is somewhat monotone, making it a difficult 30 hours to listen through.
Others may have their opinions on the narration, but I didn't have any idea what to expect, really.. It was my first audiobook and the first of a series that made last summer fly by in a hurry! By the third or fourth book, Mr. Dotrice changes the pronunciation of the names, more than likely to fit the way the names are said on the HBO series. Hats off to the writer, the narrator, the recording, editing and mastering! Masterfully done!
I hated this book
Book 5 in hopes something will change
An amazing narrator
100% Yes. The story is just so well put together and the narrator, Roy Dotrice, does such a fantastic job with it. I listen to these at work for like 10+ hours a day so Game of Thrones was the perfect option for me.
10/10 Book, give it a listen.
