I am sorry to give this book so few stars. It may be a great book. I don't know. I've given it an hour and I am bored. I just don't want to stick with it.
The book is slow to start. I did naturally become interested in the story until probably halfway through. But it is well written and the narration is excellent
Dick Hill's interpretation of the characters in "Black Ice" truly enriches the story. The story is quite good on it's own but the narration takes it to a much higher level. Also, the pacing is great. So, very, very good direction, too. I will definitely look for more audio books narrated by Mr. Hill.
Jayne Entwistle's portrayal of the main character was spot on. Her voice really took on the character of the 12 year old girl. Just brilliant!
It is difficult to choose just one character of this series as a favorite. I like Arya's youthful courage, Bran's developing awareness of his abilities, and Jon Snow's heroism. Oh, Daenerys is a great, strong, female courage. Oh, and Tyrion!!! Great combination of morality and pragmatism. So, there you go, can't just choose one.
Hmmm.... All Mr. Dotrice's male characterizations are fabulous. I am going to say Tyrion is my favorite followed by Jon Snow and Varys.
You may want to listen to this all in one sitting but it would be difficult and I would recommend against it.
I wonder if the children will ever achieve adulthood in this series.
