i love the narration
The plot, the narration, all of the different voices!!!!
different voices and then my imagination creates different images for each character.
I cried alot and cheered for the heroes
I love every one of these books but I would definitely say that they are an adult fantasy book and not for a teenager. The language is not appropriate for teenagers.
Love the impressions, this book has a lot of names, and I'm a visual person so I will read on Kindle, but I'll listen on 2x speed because his narration is just amazing.
Many turns and twists keep you on your toes.
Not going to spoil this one.
Roy Dotrice is very good
Unpredictable, Exciting, Engaging
The descriptions of the characters
The burning of the boats in the battle of King's Landing.
I would just love to sit and listen, but don't have that much free time. I don't want to stop listening when I do have to end.
The characters are so vivid that you feel you personally know them.
I love this series so far, but Little did I know by listening to this I was going to have the 3rd and 4th book spoiled as THIS RECORDING IS OF THE 5TH BOOK!!!!!!. Book also says it's unabridged, but the recording is like only 6hrs...not possible. BOOO
Great continuing story, so much going on and always going in a different direction than you think the story is going to go.
First, not going to bother with the story much. Every other review praises it correctly. The reader is excellent, and does a great job with the material.
My only complaint is that in this audio book, they just inject chapter markers every 45 minutes and they don't actually match up with the chapter. This means when you hit next button to go to the next track (or back to listen to the last chapter), it takes you back 45 minutes regardless. I personally find that very annoying. That said, great book, and highly recommended.
I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to the audio edition of this series! I'm an avid reader, but had never done audio books until the summer of 2012. We were preparing for a relatively long driving vacation up into Canada, so I decided to get Audible and the first book in this series to listen as I drove. I've become hooked!
Vast and sweeping story that keeps you itching to turn the next page!
I love his voices and accents! The characters come alive and it has made the story fun!
Was thinking if you put the entire series in a 5 hour abridged version might not be to bad.
Not when the series is over. Have the type of personality I have to finish.
No, thought he did a great job reading though
Nope you know how the book is going to end and there is very little advancement of the overall plot.
Watch the shows, way better than wasting 100+ hours of your life.
I don't ever read with my eyes, so cannot answer this question. But I do love to hear the voice of the narrator.
Both of the weddings! There is no way to say that one or the other was most memorable. I was floored by both. Of course you are expecting something bad to happen, but without spoiling either event for someone who hasn't read this yet, all I can say is "OH MY GOSH!"
Only in the previous two of this series. He has kept very steady with his voices for the characters thru out over 120 hours of reading that I have heard so far. I can not imagine now, if the next book was read by someone else. It just wouldn't feel like the same story.
When John is with the wildlings and finds himself not wanting to hurt them, and his falling in love with one of them, and yet he still has his oath to keep. I think that most of my moved moments were with John. What he chooses at the end, and how he chooses. You really don't know until then, which way he will go.
So far, of the 3 books of the Game of Thrones series, this one has been my favorite. I LOVE all of the character development up to this point, but now we know who the main players are and as they all keep meeting challenge after challenge you get to see them changing and their characters just get richer and more layered. The young characters development is really amazing. I just can't say enough about how much I am really loving this series. I am getting ready to read #4, and I just can't wait.
