Publisher's Summary

The complete, unabridged audiobook of A Clash of Kings.
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 Clash of Kings is the second volume in the series.
Throughout Westeros, the cold winds are rising.
From the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding lands of Winterfell, chaos reigns as pretenders to the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms stake their claims through tempest, turmoil and war.
As a prophecy of doom cuts across the sky - a comet the colour of blood and flame - five factions struggle for control of a divided land. Brother plots against brother and the dead rise to walk in the night.
Against a backdrop of incest, fratricide, alchemy and murder, the price of glory is measured in blood.

Great book

The book is great and the narrative is good but some of the pronunciation choices are quite weird. In what world does "Brienne" pronounced as "Bra-y-in"? I cringed every single time she was mentioned. There are some inconsistent accent choices as well. Some very high-born characters have peasant accents. Accents aside, the emotion and the the flow of the narrative is quite good.

Great story, awful narrator

The story is really great, though I do find George R. R. Martin hard to read at times, he gets bogged down in detail and there are so many charscters that it can be 30+ chapters before you get back around to the character that you're actually interested in at the moment.

The narator on the other hand is aweful. The accents the narrator uses become increasingly absurd as the books go on and more characters are introduced. the accents become so thick that it is nearly impossible to understand what is being said at times. The majority of the accents he uses sound drunk, slurred or out right retarded.
