I tried listening to this book a few years ago and simply couldn't follow along with it. I was lost long before the story ever even got started.
Fast forward about five years and I just binge watched the entire series. I loved it so much that I wanted to go back to the audiobook. I tried, I really did. I simply can't stand the narrator, especially his Tyrion Lanister. I want to scream everytime he speaks in character.
I have listened to a zillion audiobooks. I have been through the Outlander series and Harry Potter series countless times. Davina Porter and Jim Dale are masters. Roy Dotrice is a butcher.
I'm sorry to say that I just don't have the time to sit down and read a book. That is what I love so much about audiobooks. I guess I will have to rely on the TV series for the rest of Game Of Thrones.
I just can't get into this book. I love reading and usually prefer the books to the movie, but I think this would be better to watch rather than read. I listened to about 4-5 hours of this book and just didn't enjoy it or find it interesting. I'm more of a true crime fan, I do like other types, (just finished To Kill a Mockingbird) but this was boring and slow.
