"From the Paperback edition."
We've all heard that these books (and/or the HBO series) are good stuff, but I didn't expect them to be this good. In fact this is the best fantasy I've "read" yet. Martin has created a story that is all about intrigue and the characters themselves, rather than the fantasy "realm" in which it is set. He also has a knack for making it feel realistic, even at times when he departs from realism. The story is made all the better by Martin's prose, which I thought was excellent. The narrator, Dotrice, does the book justice in a way few readers can. I'm halfway through the second book now and I look forward to my commute each day when I get to continue the story.
I started watching GoT on NetFlix, and decided I'd enjoy the books. Unsurprisingly, they're better than the programs. Very engaging and interesting!
Just love this book! Can\'t wait to start clash of kings. The narration is a bot slow for my tastes but he is good at changing voices with the characters.
This is the beginning of one of the most complex yet thoroughly enjoyable fantasy/soap operas I have ever experienced. Just when one is tempted to begin questioning their commitment to this epic, a character says or does something completely down to earth, or funny or does something heroic and action packed. You can barely tell the players without a scorecard built, I promise, this is so well orchestrated that the listener will know who everyone is and have them sorted long before the end.
George R. R. Martin is the perennial "New York Times" bestselling author of the epic, critically acclaimed, and wildly popular series Song of Ice and Fire.
