Incredible story and extremely well read by the narrator. Even after watching the show, it felt like I was hearing the story for the first time.
But I was very disappointed with the narrator. He's got a great voice, but he doesn't put much personality into the story or characters and pauses at strange times in the sentences. I don't believe I'll finish this on Audible and just continue to read the physical book.
This series develops almost exactly as the movie series.
They were all good
They were all great.
This is a great book and I've previously enjoyed reading the print copy, but the audiobook performance is terrible. The speaker frequently and inconsistently mispronounces words and names from sentence to sentence. Some of the notable mistakes involve basic character names: "Anya" instead of Arya, "Jeffrey" instead of "Joffrey", and "Various" or "Vary" instead of Varys. I've never heard an audiobook with so many mistakes, I actually wonder if everyone involved in producing this was drunk.
I thought that this series was more like a soap opera with a little magic and some swords but that is not the case at all. It is a well thought out story with rich, full, characters and I am so glad that I gave it a try. If you are hesitating for any reason I suggest that you give the first book a chance and I believe you will become a Game of Thrones convert just like I did!
