"From the Paperback edition."
I have heard great things about this book and TV show, but it was very difficult to follow via an audio book. Couldn't follow the characters.
Extremely captivating book, I love the story line.
I have recently been unable to read books, when before I often was carrying around 2 or 3 at a time. I decided to try audio books and jumped on this series knowing if I liked it I had many more in the series to now bring the world of reading back to my life. I have not seen the HBO series, for me I think it made it easier for me to \"see\" the characters and magic right away. There are two options for narrators,I would suggest listening to the samples to see which you prefer. I thought this narrator had more range for all of the characters. If you want to escape to another world this is a worthy series.
I hate to disagree with the majority, but the narration becomes retching, particularly (and exclusively) for the dialogue parts. All the voices sound much the same and it makes it hard to differentiate. I wish a narrator with a softer, more lilting voice had done the narration. Other than that, the book is beyond fantastic, compellingly complex and endearingly enigmatic.
Love this story and the narration is wonderful. Truly brings the story to life.
I really enjoyed the narrator. He had a voice for each character, which made listening a little more interesting.
I loved this audio book !! I felt like the narrator had the accent down but most characters sounded like they needed to clear their throats.
At first, when I heard the sample audio, I thought the narrator was going to be annoying. Boy was I wrong! I'm hooked. Ice already started the second book after finishing the first in just a week! These are great to listen to while I'm at work and they make the days fly by! This is the most in depth story I've ever encountered. Families, religions, histories, cultures, heck he created an entire detailed world! I would recommend this even to people who aren't into "fantasy".
Just epic, I\'m a huge fan of the show but even a bigger fan of the book, I recommend this to everyone !
Great narrator who brings life to characters and world. He does more than just read the story. heavy breathing when characters are winded, sobs when they are sad, and sloppy when they are toothless adds life other narrators would fail to include. As for the story it is deep and interesting. It is easy to love and hate characters but the story is also vulgar to the point it\'s distracting. Readers should be aware of that before reading or listening to this book but it is a must read besides.
