Absolutely, there's so much there & it's so detailed.
Impossible to answer
Unique voices for each character & great delivery.
Can't wait to get the next book in the series.
I am one of the 3 people ever not to have seen the show, people were talking so I downloaded the book.. Renaissance maury, Robert berathian you are not the father what?!? wow love the accents and the inflections of the narrator worth a listen!
Its a shame the narrator was rubbish because the book is great. the narrator makes all the characters sound the same and if the book hadn't been written so well I dont think I could have gotten thru it. I won't be getting the other audio books if he is the narrator which saddens me because this book was great.
There's not much I can add to the accolades of G.R.R Martin's masterpiece. What I will say is Roy Dotrice is awful, just simply awful. He speaks in a near monotone, he makes every character sound eather like a decrepit old man or a crackling toothless old crone. He mispronounces almost every name, for example he'll say Joffrey then say Jeffrey only a minute later. I even heard slurred words, like he was narrating drunk. I have listened to many an audio book and never have I heard such a bad narrator. Roy Dotrice's horrible narration didn't ruin the book, but, it came close many times.
It was a great story. I can't wait to get a chance for the other books. I dare say I enjoyed it far better than Lord of the Rings. Terion (doubt I spelled that correctly) is my favorite character. if I were to say the parts that involved him where of my favourite. I'm sure Jon Snow will play a part of greater importance later in the series.
I decided to get this book 1. Because everyone talks about the tv show and 2. It's a really long book to listen to at work. The first few chapters I didn't care to much for and then it really got going and suddenly I was attached to the characters! I am definitely buying the other books and DYING to watch the show!
Chapter 7th is as far as I got. I just couldn't stand the narrator's voice. It was monotone, raspy ... I tried, I really did. This one is getting returned.
After Watching the show and needing more Game of Thrones during the off season, I came here to listen to the audiobooks while working and fell in love! Roy Dotrice captures the persona of most of the characters and presents them in a way that clears up a considerable amount of confusion.
