The imagination and language blew me away.
Through the Looking Glass, though they're by the same author.
Not as good, in comparison to Benjamin Button, which was by far a better performance.
Curiousity Killed the Cat
Tyrion, the Halfman!
The Battle of King's Landing
I love his manner and tone he gives, and his love and life of each performance.
Laugh, usually at funny lines or at ironic parts.
An epic tale of revelry, vengeance, warfare, deceit, power, and death. This book starts seconds after the first, immediately driving the reader back into the Song of Ice and Fire mythos that the first book delivered. Overall, I felt the book was written very well. George R.R. Martin loves to end each chapter on a cliffhanger, and loves to drive his audience to different ends of the book. We get to learn more about the pasts of several characters in the Game of Thrones that we hadn't known about prior, see the cunning wit of Tyrion, or the honor-bound Jon, or new Mother of Dragons. We even get to see through Theon (who I have no care for) and a new character to boot. While I didn't find it as overwhelmingly grand and impeccably told as the first book, I found this one to be a different creature all together, and it told a tale worth telling. There are clear points of displeasure that I found in the book, like the overabundance of meaningless sex scenes, dreams, and food descriptions, it still didn't deter the overall story and the grand scheme of things. Just little notes. Some of the dreams placed real highly in the point of the book, such as the direwolve dreams, or Tyrion and Catelyn's recounts of past times. I would recommend to any that like mediaeval fantasy and adventure stories, though I will account that this novel is almost no good without its companion of the first, and could clearly not be a standalone novel. If one was willing to follow the full of the adventure, that it would be worth reading it at least once.
I honestly liked the sound and honest enthusiasm the reader placed in this book. Very well done.
Ben's dad was an interesting character, and he kept me invested in his son.
The child acting general.
It's been done.
I would recommend the book to a fantasy reader, but only if they truly care about the series. It's not worth picking up outside of the story.
Less repetition of useless details, and much less about Oba, the Oaf. His character is terrible, and the story drives a stake in itself. I got very tired of hearing invincible.
Simple and kind voice. A little monotone, but it was fine.
