A Song of Ice and Fire

I have a 120 mile round trip commute to work most days and some weekends. During the ride I recently completed books 1 - 5 in the "A Song of Ice and Fire" series by George R.R. Martin. I downloaded them from Audible.com. I loved every minute and listening made the drive so much better. Roy Dotrice read all but the 4th, "A Feast for Crows" and was simply amazing throughout, not that John Lee's rendition was poor by any means however once you've listened to Mr Dotrice's voice and intonations you do become entranced. There are some unnecessary lengthy descriptions and some over the top sexual content throughout the series but the stories and characters are fantastic and I'm looking forward to the eventual release of the next book, "The Winds of Winter." And yes I realize its been about 7 months since the last post!
