The book yes - the audiobook, no.
It is a great strory; beautifully written. Great characters and plot. All the things that you require in a work this big.
But: the narrator gets on my nerves. The insistence that nearly all characters must have their 'own' voice leads to near incomprehensible parts as the narrator slurps and gurgles though dialogue. Parts of the story went over my head, as I simply couldnt hear anything (note to reader: Im non-native speaker of english).
Tyrrion ... who else ;-)
Not in a million years.
It needs a rereading - Ill even consider buying the whole lot again to get rid of Mr Dotrice
Quit the series after book two - wouldnt waste any more time on listening, and will continue the series the old fashioned way
I'm enjoying the series so far. It is refreshing to have a taste of reality in a fantasy novel. Also the narrator's performance is fantastic. Each character's voice is recognizable.
I have listened to this book four times. I think that the speaks for itself. Suspense, drama, love, hope, hate, this series of books will take there and beyond.
Up at the top so far
I would compare it to Eragon as far as adventure/fantasy.
First recording I have heard of Roy Dotrice. Does an excellent job
In for the long haul
Have braced myself for this story as some reviews talk about the violence and how many characters will die. However, got through first one and want to hear more. A rich tapestry of characters, lands and plots has begun to unfold.
I love the Game of Thrones series; it's an epic fantasy worth getting caught up in. The writing style leaves a little to behold, but that is easy to overlook once you get lost in the happenings of Westeros.
