    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

    In anticipation of the HBO production and the release of this book, I re-listened to the first 4 books. Books 1, 2 & 3 were such a pleasure, thanks to Roy Dotrice and the life he brought to the characters. I gritted my teeth through book 4 (had read the paper version the first time) telling myself I could stand it because Dotrice was to be the narrator for book 5. Well, what a huge let down that turned out to be. I echo what so many others have already commented on. Why in the world did Dotrice change the voices for so many critical characters? Argh! Also, though the world R.R. Martin has created is a cruel one, up to now he managed to convey this to the reader without unnecessary crudeness. I think book 5 was crass and, in some cases, offensive. With more of the story to come, I just hope Book 6 is better.
