A Clash of Kings: A Song of Ice and Fire: Book Two (Unabridged) - George R.R. Martin

Great audiobook. I've been an audio junkie for a few years now and I have listened to some really poor narration. This narrator is a great fit for this series. He does slip into what I call a "pirate voice" more than a few times, but it didn't bother me enough to turn it off. I had no problems with the download on my iPod classic. The chapters are indeed sequential, and while the price is steep compared to an actual book, you pay roughly $25.00 for an audiobook that's about 10-15 hours long, so in the larger scheme of things, it's really not that bad if you're into audiobooks.

The story in this installment is fantastic, shocking, violent (there's a huge battle), and really sad at times. Martin loves killing off people we end up liking and then I'm also really surprised by the actions of his other characters. You never know their true personalities. A character you think is "good" ends up being horrible and the other way around. Interesting and at times infuriating. But it's a fantastic story. I liked this book better than the first in the series.
