the series is fantastic, i have read all 5 and hope the author gets the next book out soon!
while i enjoy the story immensely, i would not have picked this narrator. his voice is very
Fantasy. Adventure. Mystery...
I loved it all!!!
Impossible to choose just one.
I laughed and I cried. I could not put it down.
Thank you George.
I switch back and forth from my iPad to my PC and to my iPhone .. depending on where I am and how i wish to listen. I love that it switches so well.
Also i am always using the HD quality option. I appreciate that option being provided.
Everyone loves the dwarf ;D
great pace .. great inflection .. easy to stay with him. Lots of readers are SNORE material .. eventually I get so tired of their voices that listening to the book is tiring... and i want to turn it off. Since I particularly like these for long drives, I am glad that he remains interesting for long term listening.
I love that the impact of circumstances in this book are so down to earth. No character is killed off for affect .. but no one is safe either .. it all is so human.
I love the use of magic in this book. It is very precious, a
George Martin is one of my all time favorite writers with this ongoing story spellbinding. Cannot wait to get my hands on the rest of them.
It's worth listening to again. Great narration, and superb fiction. It's much better than the tv adaptation, although that is good too.
There is a ton of characters in the book, and the narrator gives a unique pitch to each of them. I enjoyed listening to all the distinctive characters. So yeah, the narrator really made this a great listen.
Yes, but I don't want to spoil you with spoilers! There are moments when you go
I bought this when it was on sale for 1 credit. I'm waiting for the 2nd book to go to 1 credit before I get another one. So please hurry up already, lol!
The narrator is very good at reading a very difficult book with tons of characters, and yet I can follow who is who just by how he changes his voice.
The richness of the characters, descriptions of the world, and the depictions of human frailties are all so very, very rich and so true to life. Even though this is a fantasy, it is so real. Just watch the news! Love it!
He's very good at depicting the various characters which makes it become alive. This can't be an easy book to read and he does it so well. I sometimes don't get back to listening, and yet, I can figure out who's who by his voice. I could listen to him for hours and I don't get bored.
I would love to, but it's way too long. ;) But I find myself thinking about it as it fits into our politics and human nature when I'm not listening.
I have friends that are also reading, (listening) and we talk about it at our lunch break. It's so fun!There's always something that my friends have seen or heard that I missed or hadn't thought of. It's just so very, very rich!
No, not the audiobook. Definitely the paper book.
Story is amazing. Brilliant character study. More politics than Fantasy. But still good.
The male version of Emily Gray.
Yes, but the reader was beyond exhausting.
Holy hell. The narrator. Whether reading dialogue for an old man, young girl, or whatever - nearly the same tired, plodding voice. Yes, you have an English accent. Awesome! But young boys and girls do not sound like old, gravely men. The reader made this audiobook exhausting. Will avoid anything he reads in the future.
Twisting plot and strong characters and some characters are written just perfect, but don't fall in love with any one character you never know when they may meet a grisly end. Great first story of an exciting series.
true crime fan
I am usually not one for fantasy books but after seeing the TV show I took a chance and am so happy I did. Everything I love in a book; it transported me to another world and I can't wait to read the sequel.
