I have heard so much about the series so decided to give these books a try. It is so fabulous that I could not stop listening even when I was cooking.
Even though the style of story is not the same as Ken Follet, it reminds me so much of his books with quality of writing and very I depth storyline for each character. I would HIGHLY recommend anyone to listen to this book and series!!!!
This book is absolutely outstanding. A must for anyone who hasn't already seen the tv show.
I really wanted to like this narration, and many parts of it are perfectly acceptable, but the voicing of Khal Drogo during Daenerys and the Khal's "first ride" is absolutely abhorrent, and the fairy/Irish accent ascribed to Tyrion, while less categorically wrong, is even worse in its far reaching detriment to this audiobook.
Have you Hugged your Horse today ??
I absolutely loved the narration. I listened to the story on audible. And I found myself thinking of places that I needed to drive to, just to listen to Ice and Fire.
I got into game of thrones through the television show on HBO. It's twists and turns left me always wanting more. Listening to this book gave me more. Time to listen to the others now!! Would definitely recommend this book to anyone in the mood for adventure, love, loss, fighting, and sexiness.
I have been listening to my nephews rave about this show on HBO but I have not watched it. I finally decided I needed to check the first book out so I would know what everyone is talking about. I love this story and Roy Dotrice is wonderful. Cannot wait to begin the next book.
Search for Dragons series
All of Daenarys stories but when she discovered Khal Drogo in a vegetated state
The way it is recorded, there is no way to tell which part you are listening to. It wasn't labeled in my MP3 and the beginning of each segment did not tell you which part you were on. I listened to half of part 4 before Part 2. I had to go back to my download and track parts by length of the track. All lot of Dotrice's characterizations came out sounding like a bad wicked witch of the west and the dwarf Tyerion sounded like what you would imagine a leprechaun to sound like. They were very forced and didn't sound like people. Other than that, it is a great story with wonderful fantasy worlds. The TV series has taken it a lot further so I was ahead of the story.
