    Story
    (20980)

    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.

    DCinMI says: "Review of First 5 Books"
    "Excessive violence and cruelty."

    Performance
    Story
    Would you try another book from George R. R. Martin and/or Roy Dotrice?

    I stopped in the middle of book four. Martin found new ways to maim, rape, torture to the point that I thought Martin himself must be twisted. The excessive cruelty depicted in the book becomes a distraction from the plot.


    What could George R. R. Martin have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Limit the violence.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Dotrice does a good job but lacks the ability to vocalize the characters differently. He basically has four or five voices that he uses with the same slur, slobber or pitch.
