    What does Ian McKellen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I have tried reading it before, but I could not get into it. McKellen's narration makes the text come vividly alive.

    Story
    (105)

    It begins with an explosion. Another day, another bus bomb. Everyone, it seems, is after a piece of Turkey. But the shockwaves from this random act of 21st century pandemic terrorism will ripple further and resonate louder than just Enginsoy Square. Welcome to the world of The Dervish House; the great, ancient, paradoxical city of Istanbul, divided like a human brain, in the great, ancient, equally paradoxical nation of Turkey. The year is 2027....

    Too long. Too predictable. The few bright ideas are mercilessly elaborated, crushing this reader's enthusiasm and revealing that the author has nothing to say. Boo!

    As opposing forces maneuver for the final titanic showdown, an army of barbaric wildlings arrives from the outermost line of civilization. In their vanguard is a horde of mythical Others, a supernatural army of the living dead whose animated corpses are unstoppable. As the future of the land hangs in the balance, no one will rest until the Seven Kingdoms have exploded in a veritable storm of swords.

    Any additional comments?

    Having read the books when I was younger, I wanted to revisit them after having enjoyed the tv-series. The plot and characters are still intriguing, but I do find the prose somewhat drab and full of clichés. Still an enjoyable listen, though, especially due to the inventive narration of mr. Dotrice.
