Another epic in the Song of Ice and Fire. There is so much happening in this book you'll want to re-listen to get it all. Don't be fooled by the tv series. The books are so much better.
Don't be daunted by the many hours and chapters. It's well worth the read and time to listen.
Having completed the entire audio series of A Song of Ice and Fire, I have edited all my ratings of the narrator's performance. Roy Dotrice ruined my perceptions of the characters with inconsistent character tones.
I would rather have had the books read in a monotone voice free of all inflections than listen to him make manly men sound like some whimpy teenage boy and Danny like some old crone (referencing ADWD narration).
With that being said, the series is still so damn good that I'm listening again for a second go around. I just work harder at dreaming of a world where the actors of the HBO series are providing the voices for the audio series and Dotrice only supplies the narration!
