I love the series and knew that the book had to be great. I was not disappointed. Roy Dotrice was superb! There was so much going on with so many stories and he made all the characters come alive. I felt like I was watching the series. A fantastic book and excellent read for sure.
Considering that I have a reading disorder, the Audible compamy has quenched a great day of time with Audible as my greatest personal fre
this novel is the first in many other fine works worthy of the term, "masterpiece" that I have listened to. the last few hours were fantastic and yet I feel I must relisten in order to follow the authors storyline. The key characters in the beginning were lost to me in the story line.
Beyond that, I feel that this is a must read and worthy of great praise.
They selected a very old man to read this, neglecting that the book is mostly told from the narrative perspective of girls of 10, 12 and 14 and a boy of 14 with a smattering of slightly older people. He reads their dialogue like a they are stuffy old English lords. Laughable in parts due to his limited range.
There is never a wasted word in game of thrones, every sound chosen carefully, and every remarkable story told wonderfully (thanks to both Mr.Martin, and Roy Dotrice). I beg you to read/listen to all these books, never have I been so engrossed in a story, and so connected to the characters. Trust me, you won't be disappointed.
amazing job by author and reader dotrice does an amazing job with an epic story I love it and will be listening to the rest of the books
