    Dubbed the American Tolkien by Time magazine, George R. R. Martin has earned international acclaim for his monumental cycle of epic fantasy. Now the number-one New York Times best-selling author delivers the fifth book in his spellbinding landmark series - as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire.

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If there were fewer main characters, more character development of the fewer characters, and less droning on about things that are uninteresting and irrelevant. Also, fewer stories to keep up with and less cutting off of interesting stories to return to mundane, uninteresting story lines.

    Story

    Boldly original and fully documented, this unauthorized yet definitive biography tells the almost incredible story of Joseph P. Kennedy, grandson of a poor Irish immigrant, controversial founder of a great American fortune, and father of the 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy.

    Boston Harbor says: "Read the book, don't listen to it."
    "Good Information - Bad Narration"
    Overall

    There ought to be a law against an author narrating his own work. There is no doubt that the author was quite scholarly in his research, but the narration is beyond bad. I finally had to give up on it. I just couldn't stand any more of the choppy speech and background noise.
