I just binged on this series and I'm sad that this is it. I need the next book right now! Thankfully, the show will be airing in April the next season in April. I'm hoping it will hold me over
Roy dotrice has a wonderful voice for gmms books, and this one is no exception. I listen in the csr, on the bus, walking downtown. he changed some of the voices and the way he pronounced names, but they did it so far apart, it's understandable.
I like the last book, some of our favorite characters return in this novel and the story advances, although it a glacial pace. Some people are killed and the original style which made the series initially interesting returns although in limited fashion. Since you are already so far into the serious chances are you a read this book whether this review is good or bad. So enjoy it!

I might not listen to it again, just for the sheer length of it. I am glad I have listened to it, but 49 hours is a long time to listen.
The changes in the plot line are dizzying at times, and every time you think you have the plot figured out there is a drastic change, which is fun, but confusing at times.
His dramatization is very good, unfortunately whoever is doing continuity is asleep at the stick as voices keep changing from book to book, and sometimes from chapter to chapter.
It is physically impossible to do this, without doing yourself damage.
I really am curious to see the next book, if it ever comes out. Will this story ever "finish"?
Any book from A Song of Ice and Fire is worth the purchase. I bought these books knowing that I would listen to them multiple times. As far as the narrator is concerned, pretty top notch. Obviously no one human being is perfect and his pronunciation of some words drove me nuts, but overall excellent job. I just happen to be a stickler for such things and doubt that most would neither notice nor care. Great work, great book, great production!
