A Game of Thrones

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By:

Narrated By: Roy Dotrice

Publisher: Random House (Audio)

Date: April 2011

Duration: 33 hours 58 minutes


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.

    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.

    Great narration. Listened as a refresher, read the book years ago, and it definitely got me through my morning commute for the month!!

  • Donna Mekala

    Narrator is a little slow I listened at 1.25 speed.

  • Robert Benaroch

    I have read this book numerous times, but its amazing how many little details and minor characters shine through in the audio version. Excellent.

    Been watching the show for a few years.. Wanted to read the books but didn't have time. This was the best thing to do I have a 30/45 min drive to and from work and this book makes my time go by so much faster. The narrating is a little strange with his voice and all. The book itself keeps you very interested. You do get used to the narrating.

    Must admit, the narrating is vivid enough to visualize the story.
