A Game of Thrones
- A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 1
- By: George R. R. Martin
- Narrated by: Roy Dotrice
- Length: 33 hrs and 46 mins
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....

I don't care for Mr Dotrice
As things go along, Mr Dotrice's reading improves, or perhaps I become more used to it. I don't care for his approach; he's reading a little too much and interpreting not enough. Then again, I am spoiled by Patrick Tull.

Sense and Sensibility
- By: Jane Austen
- Narrated by: Juliet Stevenson
- Length: 12 hrs and 43 mins
When Mrs. Dashwood is forced by an avaricious daughter-in-law to leave the family home in Sussex, she takes her three daughters to live in a modest cottage in Devon. For Elinor, the eldest daughter, the move means a painful separation from the man she loves, but her sister Marianne finds in Devon the romance and excitement which she longs for.
very easy on the ears.

Jane and Juliet: The Perfect Match
I have every one of the available Austen/Stevenson recordings and they are all a treat. If you are an Austen fan, this is the way to enjoy her.
