"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)
...No surprise though. The performance reaches the level of the story itself--a formidable feat. On to the next installment. My only regret is that I'm going to be caught up before the final volume is released...
Loved the story. Some of the character voices sounded similar. I was poisoned a bit to the voices by the HBO rendering, But it was still fantastic to hear.
Could have cut a few hours of useless background and song out, may-haps there was some literary stuff behind it but it's lost to me. Awesome performance as always.
This is my favorite of the series so far and is action packed from start to finish. Coupled with GRRM's beautiful writing, this book is a masterpiece.
