    In a time long forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons off balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. As the cold returns, sinister forces are massing beyond the protective wall of the kingdom of Winterfell. To the south, the king's powers are failing, with his most trusted advisor mysteriously dead and enemies emerging from the throne's shadow.

    Where does A Game of Thrones rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's one of my favorites due to the incredible writing and the enthusiasm of the narrator. His voice meshed perfectly with the book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Game of Thrones?

    When Bram gets pushed out of the tower window by Jamie Lannister.


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

    I can't say, he does a different voice for each one of the characters which distinguishes them. This book can be difficult to follow, but it helps to have the consistency of the narrator's voices for each character. His voice reminds me of a salty sea captain. Love it! Gotta have it!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I've already seen the HBO series so I knew what was coming as far as major plot points. There were several points where I flt connected to the characters and then the were killed off. All I know is I am not waiting until my next credit comes in, I just bought Clash of Kings.

    Would you listen to The Witching Hour again? Why?

    It was a decent read. Not as gripping as some of her other books. A nice short read. The reader's voice kind of bugged me. I don't think I'd read it again.


    What didn’t you like about Joyce Bean’s performance?

    It was a little cheesy and her voice is rough on the ears.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No.

    Good book while commuting.

    What did you love best about A Voice in the Wind?

    I had physically read this series several years ago and purchased it on audible remembering how much I loved it. Even though F.R. is a Christian author, her writing is full of passion, gore, sensuality, heart-wrenching drama, and thrill. I really love Nora Roberts books and I would say F.R.'s story line is better than anything I've ever read by N.R. It is simple a historical fiction of the life of a young Jewish girl turned Christian who lived during the oppressive, warring, ancient Roman times. The descriptions used in this book are absolutely captivating. I bought this book to listen to when I'm at work, but found myself enthralled and listened on the way home in the car and during my workout. Suffice it to say, I have already purchased the 2nd book in the series. I don't want it to end!!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I know everyone says Hadassah so I will say Marcus or Atretes. Marcus is a man lives a hedonistic life and says he doesn't care ow his actions will affect others. But you see his restlessness throughout the book and how he struggles with his passions and want to be moral like his father. Atretes is a really neat character. He is a Germanic King taken from his tribe to become a gladiator of Rome. I love how he stays strong even in the face of death.


    Have you listened to any of Richard Ferrone’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Never.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A book you'll never want to put down.


    Any additional comments?

    Buy it.
