Fantasy All Day Every Day!
I have watched every episode of the HBO series and it does not do the books justice in my opinion. I watched the series 1st and read the books 2nd. The books are AMAZING!! This is how I do it. I have all the Game of Thrones books at home. I read when I can and I listen when I can't or don't want to. Either way I am always plugging through this Epic Story! Roy Dotrice is the best narrator out there and is right up there with Robert Inglis.
This book made me laugh more than I thought I would. George is a hilarious writer and that doesn't come through on the HBO series.
If you like the show you NEED to read or listen to the books. I would listen/read. You can't beat Robert Inglis voices. They are so well done! It's hard to put this down.
Filled me in on the whole story not covered in the HBO series
His ability to give all the characters emotion
Yes, absolutely! Ray Dotrice brings this thing to such perfect life that it's almost impossible to stop listening. It's 33 hours well spent!
It's The Game of Thrones, there's something for everyone here! Except if your a child. If you're a child you probably shouldn't be reading this....and by child I mean under the age of like 13.
Having read this book a few times before, I wasn't caught off guard or moved by anything.
If you've read the book, revisit the story with the audiobook, it'll be like a completely different tale, but still incredibly awesome.
From the very first chapter I was enthralled with this book. there's a lot more detail in the books, and the show provides a visual point of reference. I am impressed with the production of HBO's Game of Thrones because it is so close to the book original content.
