The story is wonderfully written and
Beautifully performed. If you are a fan of fantasy this is an excellent addition to your collection
Having heard all the buzz about this book from the HBO series, I decided to give it a listen. As a long time reader/listener of fantasy novels, I have to say I was very impressed! The story is strong, the characters are memorable and the pace is excellent. I have since listened to all five novels that have been released so far and I am totally in love with them. I will eventually re-listen to the series and watch the HBO show, too.
Dotrice does an amazing job as narrator in this book. As the series goes on (books 3-4-5), his work goes downhill. All the characters in this book are masterfully done.
I recently started watching the HBO series and I always like to read the story as well as watch the show or movie. HBO does a great job at portraying this world but their is nothing like reading it and the book has so much more to offer the fan of this series. It is strange to watch a series and read it at the same time because there are little differences and there are also great insights into what is going on in the minds and thoughts of the characters but also huge parts of the book had to be removed from the show because of time restraints. If you are a fan of the series I highly recommend reading this and if you have never seen the series, this is one of the best fantasy novels I have ever read.
So many moments are memorable and I don't want to spoil the shocking things that happen in the book for those who have not read it.
He does a fantastic job of giving voice to so many characters and you are able to distinguish characters by the voices he does. Not every reader is that talented. He is amazing.
Many. Jon snows journey at the wall. When Jon is thinking of leaving and he speaks to some members of the black. Also Danarius when she will do anything for her husband and the results.
I am so glad that this is only the first book in a series and their are so many more. This truly is an amazing novel and I highly recommend it to all fans of great writing and fantasy worlds.
Thoroughly enjoyed the story. The narrator was excellent too. I now love sitting in the worst traffic, and letting my mind wander off to where the story takes me. Can't wait to start the next book!
There are some things on the TV show that I like better than the buck but all in all it was pretty good I wish to God I want talk with a British accent though that kind of ruins a lot because these guys are from Britain or from England at all so that whole English accent thing was kind of down
