I hate books like that! The only joy comes from vengeance or, more rarely, justice. There are numerous subplots and back stories that the television series did not cover so if you wish to learn more about the history of the fictional land of Westeros as well the characters that roam its lands. The characters age so realistically in the book and the many sub-plots and intertwining leaves you just wanting more and more. If I had been reading a paper book, I would have a lot of holes in my walls from repeatedly throwing the books against them. Otherwise, the narrator is brilliant.
If you enjoy fantasy, this is a must read. There are some pretty rough scenes that are pretty shocking. . Unfortunately, as a woman, I would still not be able to become a Black Brother. Bad things happen to good people, and vice versa. Nothing is sacred, no one is safe.
This is not just a good narration; it is a great performance. This is what mature fantasy literature is all about; it is magical and yet feels so realistic. However, reading them has given me plenty of practice climbing the walls. The vast array of characters is engaging and beautifully developed. As the schemers deploy their pawns and make their moves, will the Starks, known for their honor, be able to survive in a world where honor can be bought and the truth is hidden among lies? The importance of their role in the coming events is unknown to them as well as their enemies. He sounds like the great actor that he is.
I am still reeling from the captivating storyline and the amazing narration! I gave up trying to predict what would happen, and decided to just enjoy the ride. So, if you decide to read it, brace yourself. In the middle of this maelstrom of deceit are the Starks. Sometimes I think the author intentionally speculates about what the reader would expect in the plot of a fantasy novel, and then does something completely different. Audio book Summary: In a land that was formed through the iron will of man where summer can last decades, a dark presence grows in the north beyond the wall of Winterfell that threatens to throw the land into chaos. As strange as it was at times, I have been tempted to listen to the next book in the series just for the narrator. If being violent and explicit is what you call adult reading, well, this is it.
The narrator took some getting used to in particularly the way children and women are spoken. This is not for the mellow people. But I read all the books and am biting my nails waiting for the next one. This book is just epic! No one is happy in any of the seven kingdoms. .
