Avis de l'équipe

George R. R. Martin’s sprawling, highly acclaimed epic fantasy series, on which the hit TV show Game of Thrones is based, continues. Veteran actor Roy Doctrice reads this classic audiobook, in which blood feuds and rebellions are laying waste the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. As winter draws nearer, 20,000 wildings are congregating in far-north Frostfangs to attack Robb Stark’s Kingdom of the North, under fire from the south by the treacherous Lannisters. Thrilling, moving and deeply complex, A Storm of Swords (Part One) - Steel and Snow, book 3 of A Song of Ice and Fire, is available from Audible.

Description

The complete, unabridged audiobook of A Storm of Swords.

HBO’s hit series A Game of Thrones is based on George R. R. Martin’s internationally best-selling series A Song of Ice and Fire, the greatest fantasy epic of the modern age. A Storm of Swords is the third volume in the series.

The Seven Kingdoms are divided by revolt and blood feud, and winter approaches like an angry beast. Beyond the Northern borders, wildlings leave their villages to gather in the ice and stone wasteland of the Frostfangs. From there, the renegade Brother Mance Rayder will lead them South towards the Wall.

The men of the Night’s Watch are ready for the coming of a great cold and the walking corpses that travel with it. But now they face a horde of wildlings 20000 strong - hungry savage people steeped in the dark magic of the haunted wilderness – poised to invade the Kingdom of the North where Robb Stark wears his new-forged crown.

But Robb’s defences are ranged against attack from the South, the land of House Stark’s enemies the Lannisters. His sisters are trapped there, dead or likely yet to die, at the whim of the Lannister boy-king Joffrey or his depraved mother Cersei, regent of the Iron Throne. Cersei’s ambition is unfettered while the dwarf Tyrion Lannister fights for his life, a victim of treachery.

And on the other side of the ocean, the last of the Targaryens rears the dragons she hatched from her husband’s funeral pyre. Daenerys Stormborn will return to the land of her birth to avenge the murder of her father, the last Dragon King on the Iron Throne.

Commentaires

"Colossal, staggering.... Martin captures all the intoxicating complexity of the Wars of the Roses or Imperial Rome in his imaginary world...one of the greats of fantasy literature." ( SFX)
"Fantasy literature has never shied away from grandeur, but the sheer-mind-boggling scope of this epic has sent other fantasy writers away shaking their heads.... Its ambition: to construct the Twelve Caesars of fantasy fiction, with characters so venomous they could eat the Borgias." ( Guardian)

The best in the series yet!

A Storm of Swords is the third book in the “A Song of Ice and Fire” series. It is in my view the best of the series so far. There is so much going on, and its all nail-biting and exciting! It evokes so many emotions in you, you literally cannot stop until you get to the end. The characters grow and start changing. You see different sides to most of them and start understanding them much better.
 
The narration is, once again, absolutely amazing. Roy has more voices than you could ever imagine and does them all with flair. What an epic performer!
 
This was definitely the best in the series thus far, I highly recommend this book.

Brilliant.

What did you love best about A Storm of Swords (Part One) - Steel and Snow?

Everything. Don't mean to be glib. But it is simply brilliant.

Who was your favorite character and why?

All of them. Masterfully rendered.

Have you listened to any of Roy Dotrice’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes. As brilliant as ever.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I don't think I would like to listen to any book for 24 hours straight. But if I had to, this would be the one.

Fantastic Narration and an awesome book!

Where does A Storm of Swords (Part One) - Steel and Snow rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

By the time you read this review you would've listened to the previous books, so all i'm going to say is, it's more of the same great listen as all the other books.

What did you like best about this story?

The great thing about this story is that just when you think you've got the usual plot figured out, BAM! you're thrown completely out of the water and have no idea what's going to happen.

Have you listened to any of Roy Dotrice’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Roy Dotrice's performance is flawless. Great narration and great character performance. i particularly picked up towards the end how the Lanister brother's accents were becoming more and more alike as the characters became similar in sympathies.

I had to stop...

I had to stop what I was doing to pick up my jaw, lest I stepped on it.
I think I have learned how this man writes and so brace myself for an unexpected turn, trying to predict where the book will go but for the life of me, I can not pick most of the plot line twists.
You can imagine how stoked I am when I come close to guessing it but on the whole, this series is highly recommended for those who wish to be taken on a roller coaster for over 200 hours.

Worst narration I've ever heard.

If you can't pronounce "toga" then maybe this is not the job for you. Due to my worsening eyesight I find reading increasingly frustrating and turned to audio books. This narration is the worst I've come across. Female voices sound like a poor impression of the swamp hag, the vast majority of characters sound like they are dim witted or stoned and many characters have different voices in the same dialogue.
It's hard to believe that the ASOIAF series is narrated by a man that can't pronounce "toga". Listening to this has become more of a struggle than a pleasure.

Brilliant story - better than the TV series

The book's are better than the series as they are separate and interesting in their differences. I loved the narrative but at times - the narrator ruins the voices of some of the characters. My most hideous is the hand maiden of Daenerys - he does an awful rendition of an extremely old fashioned and insulting Asian accent from a bad Pink Panther movie.
Martin's characters and world are wonderful filled with people you love and many you love to hate. I loved the TV series and it brought me to the books and I now love the written version as well. Just 'differently'...

Great Fantasy

As I love the books of Fire and Ice I bought the audible version as well. And they are as capturing and thrilling as the book, even though I already knew the story. Roy Dotrice speaks great .

Bücher großartig, Sprecher leider schlecht

Ich bin ein großer Fan der Saga, habe die bisher vorhandenen Bücher verschlungen und seither mehrfach als Hörbuch auf Deutsch gehört.
nun zum ersten mal auf Englisch und ich bin maßlos enttäuscht. Es liegt dich nicht daran, dass ich den deutschen Sprecher gewohnt bin.Ich habe schon oft Hörbücher in den Sprachen geswitscht und kann da durchaus differenzieren.
Roy Dotrice bemüht sich durch unterschiedliche Tonlagen und Akzente den Charakteren Leben einzuhauchen. grundsätzlich ist dagegen auch nichts zu sagen, nur sollte man sich dafür mit den Charakteren auch auseinandersetzen. Varys, den sehr schlauen Eunuch durch Lispeln etwas dümmlich klingen zu lassen und den sehr karismatischen Tywen Lannister wie einen schnaufenden, uralten Mann klingen zu lassen ist nun wirklich Grund verkehrt. Aber spätestens als ich die überaus gewitzte kleine Messandai das erste mal mit angestrengt chinesischem Akzent gehört habe, war bei mir der Zauber wirklich vorbei.
Somit ist Roy Dotrice, für mich zumindest, eine unterirdische Enttäuschung. Ich hoffe das Hörbuch wird irgendwann noch einmal auf Englisch mit anderem Sprecher aufgenommen.

Excellent book, good reading

The book itself is great and very enjoyable. The reader manages to make it a very immersive experience. The only aspect I would take issue with is the changing of certain characters' voices and accents from the previous audiobooks (e.g. Tywin Lannister). This is probably down to the long time since the previous book was released.

Spannend und komplex

Ich finde ärgerlich, dass Roy Dotrice jauf einmal die weiblichen Stimmen so quäkig liest, vorher hat er sie mit normaler Stimme gelesen. Besonders bei Danaerys finde ich das furchtbar. Sonst liest er nach wie vor super

Great story, of course

Some voices the speaker mimics are really hard to stand. Story is grand though and very addictive
