I found the reader - one man - a challenge for periodically I couldn't if the voice to the character. Also thought there was gratuitous violence which did nothing to improve the story line. Marvelous cast of characters and amazing intertwining of the individual story lines. Might read in paper form the next, as I did book 1.
The narrative was outstanding & the story kept my interest. Listening to this book was a great experience. I can't wait to listen to the next book in the series.
I loved the way the narrator reads in various styles/voices for the different characters--it makes it easier to keep up with the huge number of characters and storylines. I moved between the audio book and the hard copy and enjoyed both!
Like most people, I enjoy the character of Jon Snow because of his courage and willingness to embrace his own story...I also enjoy Tyrion and Dani for many of the same reasons. Looking forward to the development and I'm guessing eventually meeting of these characters...I haven't watched the show, so the books are all new to me.
Good speed, tone, and voice shifts for different characters--really captures their personalities
no--way too complicated of a book for that--I listened an hour or two at a time so I could let it sink in
