A GAME OF THRONES
Long ago, in a time forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons out of balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. The cold is returning, and in the frozen wastes to the north of Winterfell, sinister and supernatural forces are massing beyond the kingdom's protective Wall. At the center of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a family as harsh and unyielding as the land they were born to. Sweeping from a land of brutal cold to a distant summertime kingdom of epicurean plenty, here is a tale of lords and ladies, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and bastards, who come together in a time of grim omens.
Here an enigmatic band of warriors bear swords of no human metal; a tribe of fierce wildlings carry men off into madness; a cruel young dragon prince barters his sister to win back his throne; and a determined woman undertakes the most treacherous of journeys. Amid plots and counterplots, tragedy and betrayal, victory and terror, the fate of the Starks, their allies, and their enemies hangs perilously in the balance, as each endeavors to win that deadliest of conflicts: the game of thrones.

Fantastically written and very entertaining. Constantly kept my attention. Narrator was very good. The different voices he does for the characters makes the listen that much better.

Just my own personal opinion, but I thought it was too dark and depressing. And, my 13 year old granddaughter said she thought it wasn\'t appropriate reading for me.

I love this series and since I listen to audiobooks at work, I thought this would be a nice refresher in case Martin ever graces us with the winds of winter. Let me tell y'all though, this narrator is the worst. I listen to a lot of books, and I cannot stand this man. If you want a chainsmoking maybe British pepaw to read you a book too fast, then this narrator is for you. I personally cannot stand it and will not be listening to the other books if the same man continues to narrate. I don't understand the people who say they loved his narration, but to each his own I suppose. It makes me cringe, I had my husband listen and he agrees. Otherwise these books are fantastic.
