The book is full of thrills and -for those who got engaged through the TV show- it is a great way to broad the universe and the characters we have gotten to love.
I started off binge watching GOT and just now got into this audio book. The narrator does a great job, but I almost wish there was a second voice to play other characters with, perhaps a female.
ihave never liked the phrase "the book is so much better than blah blah blah..." but it is really well written and well executed.
It's long, and there are a lot of names to juggle around. The TV series help one keep track. That and Google. The book itself is long and detailed, but it is worth the read. It's like a modern, bloodier, sexier and rawer Tolkien. Like lord of the rings for adults.
I recommend it.
