    This is Part One of Book 1 of the A Song of Ice and Fire Series. This first volume in the hugely popular and highly acclaimed epic fantasy series A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE is unabridged and split into two parts. Now a major Sky Atlantic TV series from HBO, starring Sean Bean. Summers span decades. Winter can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne has begun.

    Story
    Where does A Game of Thrones (Part One) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best - good voice acting and a story to go with it! The story is similar to the TV show but approaches some things differently, so if you enjoy one, you'll like the other and it won't be like doubling up!


    What did you like best about this story?

    So different to other books, each chapter is from someone else's point of view.
    While it is in a fantasy world, it stays on the border of realism, with only thin strands of fantasy woven into it to make the story much more intricate and compelling without being overwhelming.


    Which character – as performed by Roy Dotrice – was your favorite?

    Ned Stark as the ultimate good guy and Tyrion Lanister were excellent. Varys was a little unexpected but amusing.

  • Dante's Inferno (Dramatised)

    • ORIGINAL (49 mins)
    • By Dante Alighieri
    • Narrated By Corin Redgrave

    This original and refreshingly different dramatisation follows Dante, "lost in a dark wood", who is met by Virgil, who takes him on a tour of the underworld: a place he could end up if he decides to take his own life. Corin Redgrave is the voice of Dante.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Dante's Inferno is a masterpiece upon which many other books and lore are built.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The idea is interesting and the way he creates this world for the reader is excellent! It makes you think about the things you've done - do your actions fall into one of the 9 categories...?


    What didn’t you like about Corin Redgrave’s performance?

    The performance was great but the sound was horrible in a number of spots, where the background sound effects overtook the narrator. But you still get the gist of the story.

    A charming collection of classic fairy tales told with wit, charm, and enthusiasm. Featuring the beloved favorite "Cinderella" and including Hans Christian Andersen's "The Snow Man", Perrault's "Puss in Boots", and the whimsical fable "The Frog Prince".

    Mira says: "Fun for kids with an attention span"

    Would you listen to Cinderella and Other Children's Favorites again? Why?

    It's great to actually listen to a rendition of Cinderella that's not the same as other mainstream stories - going to two balls, not just the one... who would've guessed.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    There's 4 stories in this pack, each read by a different person, and a very cheery fairy godmother acts as the master of ceremonies. Different.


    Any additional comments?

    Would be fun for kids with a good attention span.
