This seems like a long audio book but time flys when you lose yourself in such a great tale. With the Leo of the performer I was taken on a great adventure through Westros and the Free Kingdoms all while at work. If you have watched the show then pick up this audio book it will change the way you think about this story, if you haven't get this audio book just because it rocks.
I watched the first season and decided to read the books. I couldn't believe that the series could continue to get better and better. Also, the narrator of the audio book is great with all of his voices. I'm not sure how he keeps them all in his head.
I enjoy hearing the stories and remembering what I saw on the tv show. The go hand in hand well. Great narrator.

idk what to say other than it was so awesome. staring next book immediately. can't stop listenning, what an amazing story!!!
Give me your tired heroines , your huddled hobbits yearning to breathe free; the wretched refuse of your deleted pages, and I will read.
Like most of us, I adore these stories. So it breaks my heart when, regardless of the character's rank/position or nationality, Mr. Dotrice makes them sound like Disneyland pirates. Brienne (which he pronounces 'Bry-EEne') sounds like she's from Flea Bottom and may have taken too many hits to the head. His performance of Tyrion is also too scallywagged, but Jaime Lannister sounds almost believable. The very worst is Varys. This is an extremely articulate, sophisticated and clever ... uh, 'man,' but the narrator makes him sound like Quasimodo in a pink tutu. When he finally does get around to the pirates (Ser Davos), it becomes completely unintelligible.
As if things weren't bad enough, the sound engineer honed his craft on a RadioShack sound board for his brother's garage band. The mix is all mid-range and bass, which makes it that much harder to understand what's being said. I'm seriously considering text-to-speech software because this is killing me. [Or, I could simply make more time in my day to actually READ the books, right?]
