Yes and no. Although the general narration is great, I do not like some of the voices of this narrator. Some characters that are strong men sound like old British women. But this series is one of the best I have ever read (I read the books previously).
The character development, the world the author creates.
Winter is coming.
Yes, because I have read this series many times and am waiting for the next installment.
The way all the characters work together, how nothing is sacred, don't be shocked by anyone dying or having something horrible happen. Like real life! And the story completely absorbs me.
I know it's difficult to do both men's and women's voices, but sometimes the men just sound awful, like old women. Everyone sounds old, and really in these books, people are younger than the same types of characters in other books. It might be better not to do such extreme voices, just enough so we can differentiate in conversations.
Well...as we know, HBO is already broadcasting Game of Thrones. For the most part, I think the casting is good. Except I picture Cersei as absolutely gorgeous, and although Lena Headey is lovely, she is just not what I picture. Arya: great casting! Did not really like the casting of Catelyn Stark or Lysa Arryn. But most of the casting is excellent.
That it kept me guessing, I didn't figure everything out right away.
I think Bertrand Zobrist, because he was so complex
His voices and accents were good.
