"Richly imagined." (Publishers Weekly)

"I always expect the best from George R. R. Martin, and he always delivers." (Robert Jordan)
"High fantasy with a vengeance!" (San Diego Union-Tribune)
Roy still reads a good performance. The story is still moving right along, but just a bit less well written. A little bit filler. This seems to be where the tv series diverges most (to date, anyways).
very good narration by Roy Dotrice. this made my commutes much less stressful, having something to pay attention to other than traffic. Now, given other people's reviews of Book 4 and how all of Roy's voicings and pronunciation of names change, I don't plan to buy the next ones. Time to hit the local library.
Dotrice is my favorite reader so far and i have listen to approximately 15 books so far from audible. Very good voice overs and the book in general is absolutely amazing.
His voices are consistent, clear, and appropriate for the characters! He very much brought the story to life. An excellent choice!
This is the third book in the series and it may be the best one yet. Many times the hero is safe and you can guess the outcome. But this series keeps you on your toes because no one is safe.
The narrator does a great job. He uses the different voices so well. He also does his part to keep you interested and excited.
Just starting book 5 and I have to say this may have been my favorite of them. The one thing I hated was the red wedding. I won't ruin it for anyone but I just wish things could of turned out differently. Narration was great!
Started out watching on HBO and fell in love with the characters but knew the books would by far surpass the series!! So glad I am listening to these awesome books!!!
I really like Roy Dotrice reading of this book. He does a good job with the different voices. I like the series a lot I thought I would start them now that the tv show might encourage the ending. Otherwise I will be with millions of others waiting for the next book.
