I'm a web developer based out of Sacramento, I listen to books while I work, and love audible.
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.

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
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.
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!
Mr. Dotrice brings the characters to life by using different voices to differentiate between characters.
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.
Enjoyable use of my time :-)
