It was just this past month that I finally popped my GoT cherry. I picked up the book to get me home on a six-hour drive. After that, every bit of spare time I can get I'm listening to this book! Commutes flew by while hearing the tales of the Starks, Lannisters, Targaryens, and all the rest. Roy Dotrice has the perfect voice for reading this book and really carried all the different chapters and characters well.
Thoroughly engrossing from start to finish. One is swept up in a whirlwind of adventure and intrigue. Roy Dotrice's narration brings the characters to life in a way which brings you directly into the story. Really really really enjoyable.
Great start to a series, I look forward to purchasing more of these. Although I wish there was a little more variation when changing to different characters in the story line, other than that it was a good book.
i feel that Roy Dotrice is a good reader but not for this, i have heard kats name pronounce like three different ways. also the un-needed pauses between chapters, and besides names can't really tell characters apart from one another(which in it self is a hard things to do, even if you are good at voice acting)
can't decided on how to says names, great voice, does a good job with the main characters.
33 hours, no
I love this story! So well written an entertaining. The narrator is great, but he continuously said Jeffery in place of Joffrey, or mispronounced names he had precious said correctly. He did a great job other than that, just a bit irksome to me.
Love how the narrator tries for different voices for the multitude of characters. He does a phenomenal job. Must listen and maybe better than most audio books because of the difference in voice.
I'm from california , I speak 3 Languages at 90% and 4 others at about 30%. I love Traveling, and Adventure Reading, and Adventure living!!!
great books, love the story. The saying goes, The books are always better than the movie or TV Show, this as always stands true. HBO did a great job, but the book is by far better.
