Best book of the series so far. A lot of things happen in this book, love the story. My least favorite is the character voices. They all sound like pirates.
John Snow is my favorite and his plot line gets good in this book. I also love Tyrion Lannister. He's cunning and perseveres over his challenges.
I like his voice for the narration but all of his characters sounded like pirates. Davos was the worst pirate voice. Tyrion's was bad as well. There are a lot of female characters and I wish they would have had someone else doing the female voices.
I primarily listen to audio books in my truck, going to and from work. getting the story on CD has been a problem. I can't get part 6 on disk now, because somehow audible says I've already recorded it. Being my first experience with downloading audio books, I didn't expect to get it right the first time, but do feel audible should allow for mistakes customers make in trying to put books on CD.
I guess I'll go back to using store bought audio books if I can't get a whole story downloaded to CD.
The reader is really good and of course the books are awesome.
Any of the Game of Thrones books. I love it when the reader stays the same throughout a series.
The Fire and Ice series always has me on the edge of my seat waiting for the bad guys to get their just desserts.
This is no holds barred fantasy. Mr. Martin paints his characters in such vivid details, warts and all, and you absolutely fall in love with them! Narration is awful, but the story and writing are perfect.
Absolutely, I never thought I would become as enthralled with this series as I have become.
I get so angry at Martin at times for reasons I should not disclose, but he always pulls the bait and switch to get your mind off the last occurrence. This series has to be one of the present and future day classics of all times. It has something for everyone; although, at times it does become unbelieveable when Martin takes liberty with female characters roles; overstretching the minds ability to conceptualize their task in the plot. That is more applicable towards the series though than just this book. Storm of Swords is the 3rd book in the Martin series that he has hit an in the park triple with. It truely is amazing how these 3 books come together. I can't wait for the next.
Roy Dotrice has an excellent talent as a reader, but Brits should realize that we Americans have a tough enough tiime deciphering that Cockney dialect without all the extras that he's thrown in. Overall he does a very good job and helps you relate to the characters.
great book with superb character development...much like Pillars of the Earth (the series) except with a more gripping storyline...much akin to the Eragon series.
The delivery by Roy Dotrice was captivating.
Tyrian Lannister is my favorite character. He has the flaws and fortitude that we all enjoy in a character.
Nothing so dramatic but I did get caught up in the story and stay up way to late one recent evening to finish a particular part.
This has been one of the top 10 audio book series I have listened to.
The broad epic tale
Roy Dotrice takes you to the Seven Kingdoms with his perfect recitation and the rich story of Martin's series keeps you there. Hours gone before you know it
I love this series. The narrator leaves a bit to be desired. Many characters in the book end up sounding like pirates.
This is the third book in the series and I am listening to them in order. Not the usual book genre I normally read but I can't stop now. The story line is difficult to follow. It jumps around so much. The lesser characters are hard to keep up with because their names are so similar and a few of the younger ones are named after older ones. I have found that it helps to borrow a copy of the book from my local library while listening to the audio book. The book has a list of the main characters and families in the appendix. It helps in understanding who they are and to follow the story. Do not get too attached to the main characters. They don't all survive. I was very sad when two of my favorites met a very sad end in this book. It is a great series, just very, very long.
Tierion is a very interesting character and I really enjoy the accent the reader gives him.
There is no way to listen to this book in one sitting.
