Audible is the soundtrack to my busy, city-walking life!
War and Peace: lies, intrigue, war, deception, epic!
He is amazingly consistent with narration of characters, different accents and voices; he really makes me believe the character and fall into the story.
Winter is coming.
I wish these audiobooks were not just arbitrarily divided evenly into equal number of audiofiles and someone actually took the time to make the chapters and parts end at the end of a chapter, so that they wouldn't get split up, especially annoying during the part changes.
Among the top 20.
Aria Stark...she's an unexpected wild card.
Varios the 'Spider'.
A particular moment, no...the whole story rather held me firm. As does the whole series...so far...
Exciting, engrossing, and satisfying.
Martin really knows how to not just illustrate fantastic places with depth but characters as well.
Dotrice is animated and does a good job with all the numerous and varied characters and personalities.
As powerful as a book can get, I imagine. This book capitalizes on the lengthy storylines that began in the first of the series... Giving the turns in this book great impact!
If you have read the first in the series I encourage you to read through the second and at least this third book.
This one really wraps up much of the plots that had begun in the first and will leave you satisfied. But you must continue through this third in order to complete much of what has happened previously.
You will not be pissed off, left in a cliffhanger at the end here. You will be praising Martins talent as a storyteller.
This story is very good but Roy Dotrice changed all the female voices he had from book one to three. This is very disapointing.
IT would have been appreciated if Roy would have kept the same voices and pronociation.
Great book, the series keeps getting better!
Roy Dotrice is fantastic!! He does a great job individualizing the characters with different voices. His narration is one of my favorite parts of listening to this book!
Roy Dotrice does a marvelous job of portraying these complex characters through the use of different accents, cadences, and tone.
This is an epic fantasy, rich in details for characters and locations. While magic is a part of the story, the political machinations of this world is the true focus. Therefore, it is quite unique for the umbrella genre it inhabits (Epic Fantasy). Of course, Lord of the Rings comes to mind, as well as The Wheel of Time series (Robert Jordan)...but this is only a superficial comparison. This series is unique.
He does a great job with Catylin Stark (spelling?), but I just love his work with the Lannister males-Tyrion, Tywin and Jaime.
Yes and yes.
First half of the audio was OK and then the last half I couldn't put down. I love the way no character is safe.
The third in a great series. I could not wait to for the next twist in the story for each character that I have grown to like or hate. Just when I thought I knew what would happen next, I was suprised and sometimes shocked. Thank you Mr. George Martin, for taking my minds eye to places and peoples so long ago with such incredible detail. Thank you Mr. Roy Dotrice for bringing to life all the characters and giving each a personality and presence with your excellence as reader and actor. I know only one certainty of the Game of Thrones series; I will not be fulfilled until I have listened to them all.
I actually could not finish the series because every twenty minutes or so the narrator would decide to slobber-lisp in a faux scottish accent or badly imitate a shrieking crone voice from Macbeth. Eventually I got so annoyed I could no longer concentrate on the story. Read the book instead.
The story is good and solid. the intrigues are a little less heavy and the story feels more like a dr zjivago than a machiavelli.
Anyone who does not belive he can shift between thirty voices and eighteen accents when he only has two of each.
I will never again buy a book narrated by Roy Dotrice.
This third book of the series continues with pretty much the same cast of characters who were featured in books I and II. And the new characters are appealing and their narrative fits in well with the overall story line. There is a good deal of action and a sense of increased danger as the story progresses. I'm looking forward to book IV.
