The book was a great part of the story. When the main character thinks to himself the narrator is way too quiet. I have to keep adjusting my car audio. Even all of the way up it's hard ot hear some words during those moments. Otherwise all is well.
love this story, Harry Lloyd did an outstanding job narrating, only fitting that someone from the show did more work for the seven kingdoms. I once listened to this whole story driving from DFW to el paso, 10 straight hours :). 5 stars
Great stories, all three of them. I still want to know what happened to Tanselle Too-Tall... Can’t wait for the next set of stories revolving around Dunk
It is only because I play World of Warcraft that I know the knightly armor, blades, staves, etc. There is no explanation so you just have to know. However, there is an explanation of what makes good armor from bad. I do enjoy the combat, but I enjoy the relationship between Dunk and Egg more. Egg is getting bigger and a little more rebellious. I wonder if Dunk will be able to keep his squire reigned in in the next story.
*The setting is the same as HBO's Game of Thrones but takes place hundreds of years earlier.
It was a simple story as compared to Ice and Fire but rather enjoyable. I enjoyed the narrator as well.
Enjoyed it! 'Twas my first audio book. Dunk, thick as a castle wall.
Awesome book, Dunk and Egg are such great characters
This book epitomizes the reason I love fantasy novels. I look forward to sequels which I hope will follow. I almost always purchase a bound copy of the book to read along as I listen to the audiobook. This makes my reading experience doubly enjoyable.
This is a very good audio book. I recommend it to anyone that enjoys Game of Thrones, but also have children that might be listening.
One of the best audio books I ever listen to and I can't wait for the series to continue. The narrator is amazing
This was one of the greatest books I've heard on Audiobooks. Between the reader and the story itself it create a vivid picture in your mind that is sure to give you plenty of entertainment. Also it give you an insight into the story and events that happened before the story in Game of Thrones. It's simply amazing.
Amazing story great beginning a definite must read for any seven kingdoms fan
Great reading. Excellent book. Dunk the Lunk thick as a castle wall
I loved this book, but I am a fan of the entire Game of Thrones series. This book was a fast-paced, interesting prequel to a much-loved series of characters. I'm very pleased that these books finally became available to me on audiobooks.com.
Can't get enough of the 7 kingdoms. Entertaining and intriguing. Ready for more!
I am grateful that the story begins! I do not have my fill of the Seven Kingdoms even still...
Most defently a GRRM book, but I love the twist of "Egg" being one of the main characters. Iv often wonderd what his life was like before the wall. I also like how this book only has one story line, may be a great beginner book before diving in to "A song of fire and ice" for the first time.
Excellent story that takes a refreshing look at character and honor. The narration was great. if you like the world of Game of Thrones, you will hit the ground running.
Narrating was excellent but when the main character is thinking to himself, the audio goes quite low & gets hard to hear. The story was great & you’re transported right back to Westeros. A little lighter plot line than GoT but that’s 10hrs compared to ~180hrs
Narrator did a great job at making distinct voices for every character.
I purchased this book years ago and enjoyed. I figured it was worth re-listening to since GOT show had such a let down of an ending. I love the stories of Dunc and Aeg, I hope they don’t ruin them if they make this into one of the prequel shows.. They narration and voice acting in this is pretty good, it makes the characters seem distinct. I would highly recommend.
Totally entertaining without a doubt the best narration. I can’t help but to start over once I’m done. It’s a must have. Funny, clever and surprising plots, the best book written by RR Martin. Can’t wait for more Dunk and Egg adventures!!!!!!
****No Spoilers ****
This is such a great story, and it follows two main characters on their trials and tribulations as they each grow and become the men they were meant to be.
Incredible tale of chivalry, trust, honor, and coming of age. Much different than the A Song of Ice and Fire series, though it's a prequel, it focuses on our two misfit main characters as they find their calling while having adventures in ther realms of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, and beyond. Great history of ther Seven Kingdoms as well.
Though different than the main series A Song of Ice and Fire, it's part of that world, and definitely part of what shaped the well known series as we see it today in the television show, and ther books, and if you like the books, than you'll love this.
See the Seven Kingdoms and the history and splendor of Westeros and beyond through the eyes of optimistic innocence, and learn the history of the world before A Song of Ice and Fire.
I can't reccomend this selection enough. This is my second run through. I read ther actual book and decided to listen this time. Harry Loyd does a fantastic job as teller of this tale.
