A Game of Thrones Audiobook
A Game of Thrones is the first audiobook in the A Song of Ice and Fire fantasy saga by award winning American author George R.R. Martin. This volume starts the story of the different families in the land of Westeros as they struggle to gain control of the Iron Throne. Aside from the book and audiobook, A Game of Thrones was also recently made into an HBO mini- series starring actors such as Sean Bean and Mark Addy. Also, it is available in audio format which is excellently narrated by legendary British actor Roy Dotrice. Dotrice’s execution is so spot-on that many prefer it over the book. It was offered as early as 2004 and continues to be widely distributed today.
A Clash of Kings Audiobook
Picking up from where the Game of Thrones left off, A Clash of Kings audiobook talks about the rise to power of five individuals all claiming control over respective parts of the realm. You have Joffrey Bratheon , Stannis Baratheon, and Renly Baratheon for the entire Seven Kingdoms, Stark for the Northern realms, and Greyjoy for the Iron Islands. The audiobook version was released in 2004 and runs for approximately 37 hours and 17 minutes. Once again, the narration is done by Roy Dotrice, published by Random House Audio and is available in most of the major online stores such as Amazon, and Random House.
A Storm of Swords Audiobook
The third in the series A Song of Ice and Fire by American author George R.R. Martin, this book is relatively longer than the first two books, which is why the audio version is sometimes more desired. The audiobook for A Storm of Swords lasts a whopping 47 hours and 32 minutes. Like the first three versions, it is brought to life by the eloquence of Mr Roy Dotrice. Aside from the Dotrice version, there is a Roy Avers version out there which also has its unique flavour. Fans may purchase/ download these versions from popular online stores such as Amazon, iTunes, and the like.
A Feast for Crows Audiobook
A Feast for Crows, which is the fourth book in the saga A Song of Ice and Fire, was originally meant to be a much larger work. Because of its already large page count however, the author decided to divide it into two, with A Dance for Dragons being the second half. The audiobook, which was released in 2006, spans approximately 31 hours divided into 26 CDs. The one thing different with this version is that the familiar and amazing voice of legendary British actor Roy Dotrice is not heard. Instead, the new voice of John Lee, another British actor, was used. Although he does an equally amazing job at it, fans of the first three books may suffer from separation anxiety from the familiar intonation and pace of Dotrice.
A Dance with Dragons Audiobook
The latest in the A Song of Ice and Fire saga, A Dance with Dragons is the much awaited second half of the plot started in A Feast for Crows. Plot wise, it goes back to focus on the main characters fans have come to love in the first three books. About six years in the making, this volume is greeted with much acclaim. For the first time in the history of the saga, the audiobook was released at the same date as the book. Also, fans welcome the return of the familiar voice of Roy Dotrice. The British actor, who was noticeably absent from the last volume makes a return rendering another excellent performance. A Dance with Dragons is available for download in all major online stores and lasts for approximately 49 hours.
