Winter is coming. Such is the stern motto of House Stark, the northernmost of the fiefdoms that owe allegiance to King Robert Baratheon in far-off King's Landing. There Eddard Stark of Winterfell rules in Robert's name. Far to the north, behind the towering Wall, lie savage Wildings and worse - unnatural things relegated to myth during the centuries-long summer, but proving all too real and all too deadly in the turning of the season. Yet a more immediate threat lurks to the south, where Jon Arryn, the Hand of the King, has died under mysterious circumstances....

Outstanding book. Great voice acting.
I’m specifically writing this to compliment Roy Dotrice’s narrating skills (Everybody knows the book is great). Even though the narrator can sometimes take weird voices that get hard to understand (Varys), I still like how much he reflects the characters emotions in his voice. It really emerges you in the story. He’s also very good at changing voices for different characters, in ways that fit GRRM’s definitions. He gives life to the characters.
