This book is incredible. The man who narrates the book is so good at his job that you quickly learn everyone's "voice" and fairly early on you begin to see the characters in your head. The book is written from each persons perspective of the same situation, both on the good and bad side of the story line. It's suspenseful, happy, sad, and down right scary at times. I can't wait to finish this series on audiobook, then start the show on season 1. I'm not one for long reviews so I will end on this. Do your self a favor and listen to this book.
I wished sound effects could have been added (as far as the trumpets blowing etc) instead of the narrator making them himself. Great job on changing accents and voices to suit the different characters. It made it easy to follow who was speaking.
I have read the entire series and watched with excitement all the episodes as they have come out. Listening to them during the 2016 political campaigns enlightens the understanding and brilliance of Marten even more. I do so want him to write more.
Roy brings these books alive in a way I never could staring at the pages. I love listening to this series more than I even love the show, I will listen to these dozens of times each in my life time. I love it!
Game of thrones is one of my favorite series. it's has a cast if characters, that actually feel like characters. everyone has quirks, flaws, and redeeming traits. The game of thrones series takes place in the middle of a kingdom. but the wars of prior don't cloud the story. while they do provide the basest foundation, for some of it's plots. It is a fantasy book where summers and winters can last years. magic is in the book. But it's not over flowing. as Tolkien said to much magic makes things no as magical. great book you won't regret it.
One of the best book and book series I have ever read.
The characters change and growth along with their true to life and complicated interaction make it a wonderful read/listen.
