Haven't read the print version
I was very invested in the characters.
His performance was fine until book 4.
There were so many, I cannot think of a single moment,
I can only hope the author lives long enough to bring everything to a conclusion.
The narrator has an amazing ability to switch voices and is very consistent. By the time you are an hour in you realize you know who is speaking every time because he has a special voice for EVERYONE! SO GREAT!
All if them. He gets them each spot on.
No. Too long. I commute but when I get home or to work I for sure don't want to stop! I try to at least get to the end of the
Chapter so I will often be seen in my driveway for ten minutes before I come in (better speakers on my audio system than iPhone)
I was worried since I've seen all seasons this far. But SO curious as to how someone could read this and make it believable since the story has such a wide variety of characters. Roy Dotrice absolutely amazes me. He switches characters flawlessly and his voice is so pleasant. He somehow is even able to catch the voice of children and women in a believable way even tho he has a very masculine voice. Obviously he doesn't sound like a girl. But having seen the shows I can picture easily each character. At first I didn't like Tyrian L and Little Finger voices because they don't remind me of the show. Bit I'm almost through first book of five available of book one, and I'm used to it now. In fact got used to it very fast. He is simply amazing! He's the type I wish had been my uncle because I would have loved growing up listening to him telling stories.
Epic fantasy fan
Sometimes I just want to go over to George R. R. Martin's house and scream "WHY!" It's a great book, but don't look for the happy ending or you'll be disappointed.
Accountant addicted to Audiobooks. I was never a reader until I started my Audible Subscription.
Roy Dotrice makes the characters come alive changing voices and does a great job telling the story
The Series on HBO is good, but the books are even better especially read by Roy Dotrice
Ned Stark's death
Middle of the pack. A lot of the book is great as a listen, but the gravity of the major events is a little lost in audiobook format. I loved the performance and the story, but I ended up buying the book and reading the last half.
[Redacted for spoiler]
He did a really good job with Ned.
A little, not as much as some books.
Dragons, zombies, kings, knights, war and so much drama! What's not to love! This story follows many characters, each chapter is from a different character's point of view. I'm now on the 3rd book and completely obsessed.
I don't know how he does it but he does a different voice for every character. It is very well done and helpful in remembering character names.
Yes, this book has very strong imagry and the narrator couldn't do a better job.
Have a renewed interest in books after falling in love with audio books. I am listening to all different genres and exploring different authors.
It took me a LOOOOONNNNGGG time to read this first book of the year. I have seen the series on TV, but the book is a good supplement. I am glad I saw the TV series first. It helps to keep all of the characters straight - especially when listening by audio. The book offers more insight to the thoughts and motives behind each character.
Absolutely. It is a well written story with every type of story in it for every type of reader: action, adventure, romance, suspense, mystery, fantasy, and more.
This was my first of his performances but, I would listen to others based on this experience.
Perhaps it would have been if it were not so long.
I think listening to the audiobook helped get me into it because there were so many different names and locations with strange "spellings" I would have just breezed over everything and been a little lost at the end. Since the narrator knew how to pronounce everything, I was better able to understand the whole picture and by the end of the book, I was hooked.
First off, I never liked the Lannisters or Catelyn, and Sansa bugged me with her naivety. I did absolutely love John Snow, Eddard and Arya Stark, Daenerys Targaryen and Kahl Drago. Of course, they go and kill off some of those and let some of the ones I strongly dislike live, which makes for an interesting relationship between the story and myself.
