Publisher's Summary

Of the five contenders for power, one is dead, another in disfavor, and still the wars rage as violently as ever, as alliances are made and broken. Joffrey, of House Lannister, sits on the Iron Throne, the uneasy ruler of the land of the Seven Kingdoms. His most bitter rival, Lord Stannis, stands defeated and disgraced, the victim of the jealous sorceress who holds him in her evil thrall. But young Robb, of House Stark, still rules the North from the fortress of Riverrun. Robb plots against his despised Lannister enemies, even as they hold his sister hostage at King's Landing, the seat of the Iron Throne. Meanwhile, making her way across a blood-drenched continent is the exiled queen, Daenerys, mistress of the only three dragons still left in the world....

But as opposing forces maneuver for the final titanic showdown, an army of barbaric wildlings arrives from the outermost line of civilization. In their vanguard is a horde of mythical Others, a supernatural army of the living dead whose animated corpses are unstoppable. As the future of the land hangs in the balance, no one will rest until the Seven Kingdoms have exploded in a veritable storm of swords....

    "Great dialogue and separate voices"

    Roy kills it in this dialogue-heavy epic, confuses maybe two lines throughout the book. Listening becomes clearer than reading.

    "Exceptionally read!"

    I expected great narration and wasn't disappointed. Perfect pauses were made for great dramatic effect and the character voices were numerous and well distinguished.

    "Good but.."

    The series is great but I can't get used to this narrator, the "voices" he puts on and the hoarse tone of his voice doesn't sit comfortably with me.

    "Best in the Series"
    Any additional comments?

    This has to be the longest book I have read so far. However I liked this book the best in the series so far, in book 2 I didn't feel like the story actually went anywhere, however I can finally see a plot forming, and of course the characters where great, and some of the ones I found annoying died off.

    "Great listen."

    Yaythe is so good. The fact I can see it as an excuse for the next few weeks of a sudden it was the best of the year and I don't think that I have a great way of the year and I don't think that I have a lot more fun

    "My favorite book. Great narration."

    This is easily my favorite book in the series and was very surprised to find this audiobook does it justice. I will probably be listening to the rest of the series on tape from now.

    "About a working weeks worth of entertainment!"

    Good old GRRM, the book is as long as the average working week and it still fair rollics its way to the end. Roy Dotrice is simply superb and makes the hours fly. I mowed the lawn twice it was soo good (the family get annoyed if i sit in the lounge with tge headphones on being antisocial).

    on to book 4!

    Story
    "Good, but a bit slow in parts"
    What does Roy Dotrice bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Mr. Dotrice brings the characters to life by using different voices to differentiate between characters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book seemed a bit draggy in parts, I kept wishing the story lines would speed up a bit and come to some conclusion. It seemed we were going to be kept "hanging" forever and ever.


    Any additional comments?

    Enjoyable use of my time :-)
