Summary:

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.

    I got so tired of listening to the description of what each person was wearing that I sent the book back unfinished. With 26 CDs in two parts, all the uber-detailed descriptions just took too long and I lost the enjoyment of the book.

    This is a great book series. I read the books and have watched the TV series...now I'm listening to the audiobook. I read the books before I watched the series. Now that I'm listening to the books again, I can't believe I forgot so much of the story. Get the audiobooks!

    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.
