I loved this book. I have watched the Movie but as always. The book has the depth and texture. I really didn't mind the narrator. It's a gritty tough story and the somewhat rough timbre of his voice suited the content. If you want to get into something. This is the book.
"Just as good as everyone says!"
Having put off watching this for a while, I am so glad it tried it! It is absolutely fantastic and very gripping.
"Well read and story is unbeatable."
Narrator was good, got the tone perfect and never took you out of the moment.
"Not what I expected"
Having fought the wave of fandom around the HBO series, I finally decided to listen to the books.
I didn't find it as captivating as I expected, possibly hindered by the snippets of spoilers I have heard over the past years.
The narration took a while to get used to, but, with so many characters, I eventually did appreciate Roy Dotrice's interesting accent choices, if only to keep a little more on top of who was talking.
Will listen to the next book, but taking them one at a time! Not hooked yet.
"better than the show"
Having been introduced to G.o.T via the TV, I decided to give this a listen, there are so many sections in this book that would have fit perfectly into the first season. I recommend this if you watch the show and want to hear more background information on characters and if you've never watched/read G.o.T then try it!
What a great book, performed perfectly! The level of detail and description in the writing immerses you in a world that feels so real you cannot stop listening.
This book is fantastic. Found it difficult to get into at first as so many characters and twists but after the first few chapters I was hooked! Cannot wait to listen to the next book
This is a fantastic book, but, I find the narrator very off-putting. I don't know if it's because of the TV series, but he just doesn't sound the way I imagine the characters. Otherwise, it's a great book.
loved it, got me through my walks to work. looking forward to the next one!
"Damn, son... Damn that was good."
After watching the show, the voices took a bit of getting used to, but once I had, this was incredible. I would definitely recommend it if you enjoyed the show, it made me realise that I literally had no idea what was going on in the beginning. 😂
