Winter is coming. Such is the stern motto of House Stark, the northernmost of the fiefdoms that owe allegiance to King Robert Baratheon in far-off King's Landing. There Eddard Stark of Winterfell rules in Robert's name. Far to the north, behind the towering Wall, lie savage Wildings and worse - unnatural things relegated to myth during the centuries-long summer, but proving all too real and all too deadly in the turning of the season. Yet a more immediate threat lurks to the south, where Jon Arryn, the Hand of the King, has died under mysterious circumstances....

the dude reading is all over the place with the accents and voices. and most did not fit the characters. idk where the Irish accents come from. takes me out of it. then there's anybody who's older than fifty or comes from anywhere but the north they talk without the ability to feel their lips. just a stupid idea for an accent. bad. the show does the accents perfectly. but the material in the books is better.
