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.
It's hard to pick the story line that's my favorite, but I have to lean towards both Daenerys and Jon Snow. Brilliant story!
I've tried to slog through this. Friends have said, just hold on - it get's good again. I will, but also, personally, I do not care for the slurpy voiced narration of Roy Dotrice. I know many people like his performance, but it makes me a bit queasy. I wish there were another choice. Have decided to actually read the remaining books and not listen.
