    It's America in 1962. Slavery is legal once again. The few Jews who still survive hide under assumed names. In San Francisco, the I Ching is as common as the Yellow Pages. It's all because, some 20 years earlier, the United States lost a war - and is now occupied jointly by Nazi Germany and Japan.

    "My worst Audible experience"
    Overall

    This engaging novel was spoiled for me by the reader's almost unendurable monotone. There was a little intonation, at the end of each sentence, the last word falling in pitch. Each sentence the same. It's evident in the sample, check it out.
    I looked forward to when he would put on an accent, just for a break.
    Make sure you can listen to this guy before you get this book.

    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

    This is going to be another one of those "Can't believe he changed [characters's] voice/accent again.

    It's incredibly jarring to have listened to a character voiced a certain way for 4 books, to have their voice changed for what appears to be no good reason.

    The accents in this series have been all over the place. First there was Tyrion and Jaime's flip to a Welsh accent, and Tywin's switch from a Welsh accent. Arya changed into an leprechaun at the the beginning of book four, and now Daenerys...

    Why!? Why would he take a voice/accent he's used for salt wives and toothless crones and use it for the Mother of Dragons? It makes NO sense.

    It bums me out in a major way that I'm so committed to the series. For now I'll have to grit my teeth and bear it when I hear Daenerys voiced, until my brain adjusts, yet again, to yet another voice change.
