I feel like I missed something between parts five and six of the Audible breakdown. Part six started abruptly; and it seemed as though part of the establishment of the scene was left out.
Not positive, just a suspicion.
The story and performance are five-star, but I want my concerns to be noticed.
I really like it! It had a few surprises. Great follow up to the other two.
i would recomend the story it draws you in till your addicted im not even a fantasy guy but this story is good
the midget kicks ass
a bunch of different voices
no this is a very long story so plan for it
I am stunned and shocked at all of the unexpected events in this book III. OMG sums it up. What can come next?
Amazing, Vivid, Devastating
Well of course I can't help but compare this story to others in the series. A Song of Fire and Ice as well as Clash of Kings
I have only listened to Roy Dotrice during his reading of this series and I am amazed by his extraordinary performance and the life he brings to these characters.
The entire marriage scene between Sansa and Tyrion. I wanted it to end- I was just too angry that this was happening. I've had my issues with Sansa since she put so much of this into motion being a dreamy eyed girl over the vile Joffrey but now I think she's learned her lesson. Enough! Give the girl a break!
Moving on to Book 4- A Feast For Crows!
I am about to finish the third book and that will probably be it. The author has a preoccupation with boring characters like Auria and Sansa Stark. He keeps introducing more characters both major and minor.
The genealogy references get tiresome as well. No wonder this story plays out much better as a series than in the book. The story can be particularly difficult to follow without constantly having a map in front of you. Overall, I am very disappointed with how this story just drags and drags.
However, I will say that the narration is amazing and that has kept me going. Each book averages 33 hours and one can only listen to so many Irish,Scottish and various British accents for so long.
This is the most involving to date. I am really sucked into this one. Great storytelling. It took a while to get used to Mr. Dotrice, but he does an admirable job and I am completely charmed by his narrative skills.
Yes. Parts 1 and 2.
I don't know if I would listen to it again soon. When the TV Series comes back out I might revisit it. It is very wordy and goes on a bit.
You can not believe the twists and turns the plot takes. Some great moments turn into absolute horror and some horrible moments turn into a good change of events for your favorite Characters.
I don't think anyone could do much better, this is a very difficult book and he does an amazing job. You really feel the era through his voice.
The bloody wedding, I shall say no more!
I am downloading the next book right now, so I think you can imagine I have been enjoying the series!
The book was hard enough to get into because Roy Dotrice made all of the voices of knights sound like elderly British royalty, even the warriors. I can even begin to explain the horror of it until the 4th book when he changes all the voices of most of the lead characters. The only one to stay the same are the Imp and Varies. The rest are so different I had a hard time remembering who was talking. Strong Belwas when from a large boastful voice to that of a teenage girl. and Arya Stark changed her too, it was awful, terrible. Do not buy these books until they are rerecorded by someone else. Read them the old fashion way, the story is awesome, an epic tale and the Director and the Producer ruined it. Roy Dotrice is not to bad if his bosses would have kept him on track.
The Red wedding
I have been with Audiobooks for the past eight years and recommend Audiobooks to everyone.
