It was an interesting story, but I would have liked it to be a little longer so that the characters could be further developed.
Definitely an enjoyable book. Not the most original thing I've ever read but still well worth reading. He has some interesting ideas that enhance enjoyment of the book and Kate Mulgrew's narration is fantastic. I would probably try almost anything that she narrates.
There is little I can say about this book. It is, by far, the best Of Stephen King's huge body of work and, I would argue, one of the great American novels. Despite the length, I have read it many times. Grover Gardner's performance was excellent and did the book justice.
I read the Austin books when I was a kid and now I am listening to them with my 10-year-old. They are as good now as I remember. I love Maggie-Meg Reed's narration. She has truly become the voice of Vicky Austin to my daughter and me.
Sadly, the real story is not nearly as interesting as the version in the movie. I wish I had read this before seeing the movie.
Roy Dotrice's performance is top-notch, but the story is one step down from the first book in the series. The story can sometimes be a little hard to follow, especially with the characters who are far from the main action (Daenerys and Jon in particular).
I have a definite love-hate relationship with George R R Martin. He likes to shock the reader, which makes for an exciting story, but sometimes, well, I'll just say, never get too attached to any character.
This is the most useless book I ever tried to listen to. The characters are inane and boring. The story is non-existent. Sorry, but even the sex scenes get boring after a while. I kept trying to finish the book, but finally decided that I didn't even care how it ended. I know there were a lot of complaints about the narrator. Her voice was annoying (the update was an improvement), but a better narrator would not have made this book more interesting. I will avoid other works by this author.
Not that I can think of
