A Storm of Swords by George R.R. Martin

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My immediate thoughts following this book were: What devilry is this where I can read a book full of characters I can barely stand and still remain riveted on their stories. I almost wanted to continue straight into the next book. Sorcery I tell you! George RR Martin is a sorcerer!!! Never have I ever.. and all that jazz! I have been buddy reading this series, because I’m not sure I could do it alone. I mean really there are just times in this series where you just need a breather and some friend to “talk me down.” Its amazing to me how reading actually effects me emotionally outside of a book lol. I’m not sure that I have ever cheered so hard when people end up dead in a story… sort of disturbing I think lol. This writing style is so unlike anything I have ever read before… where each chapter can end in a cliffhanger and you have to wait 10 chapters or so to get answers.

Picked this up of KU as an audio to listen to while I was getting some stuff done. As an audio it wasn’t too bad. The narrator really portrayed the main character dryly so that may be reflected in my rating. Since I actually listened to the entire book I can’t say if the FMC was actually dry or if it was just the narrator. So, the reasons it really was only ok for me were both story line and world building related. I felt that the characters, at least the FMC who we spend the entire book with was pretty well rounded, and I really felt for her issues!

Well well well. What have we here! This book was surprising! I found this after the longest 30 mins ever searching through audio books on KU in desperation for something I could listen to while painting a living room! We all need at least one audio book on hand for when we don’t have the time to actually sit and do the reading ourselves and my audio well has been running dry. Found this beauty hiding like 50 pages in and so glad I did. Let me start by saying I felt the Narrator, Caitlyn Davies, did a pretty good job. I was confused at first by the childlike voice she gave the FMC, but after a few chapters in it grew on me.
