Yes. Simply based on Roy Dotrice's brilliant and inspired "radio play" of this epic epic of a story!
The death of Rob Stark!
Don't know the characters name He was the one who ended his every statement with, "Eh"
Not Really. Only because it is 40 hours long.
The books are well written and I'm a big fan so far up to Book III. Have read the first two, but listening to the third via Audible and am enthralled. The voicing/performance is excellent, and adds much to the already excellent writing.
Yes, of the Ice and Fire saga (so far) this book has the most action. The war erupts in full force. Everyone who has craved more action will get it in this installment.
Tyrion's battle planning and his execution of that plan. Brilliant.
Only the Ice and Fire books.
No extremes, but my favorite of the Ice and Fire books.
Books make the world a better place
I have recommended this audiobook to everyone I know and I recommend it to anyone who is looking for an excellent, complicated and nothing less than brilliant storyline! This is a story/series that is easily the best I have every read/heard!
This Book 3 is so action/information packed that I do not know where to begin! I am really starting to love Daenerys Targaryen. She is definitely a dynamic character...first appearing as a clueless and compliant child-pawn and then after suffering tragedy, hardship and 'hatching dragons', growing into her woman-warrior's skin but still she makes mistakes. She struggles with the cruelties she knows a leader must sometimes utilize but over all she is a humanitarian. While earning the title 'mother', after saving the desolate and dejected masses...Daenerys is quickly becoming the nobel queen she wants to be.
Roy Dotrice's performance is powerful, enchanting and captivating. There is no match!
There is little continuity in the voices. In book 4 it seems to be, from the reviews, extremely noticeable. The character's voices seem to blend.
Tyrion of course!
The reviews would have to tell a different story then the last few report cards.
Tyrion's trial. Such betrayal.
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.
