Loved the detail of the book compared to the HBO series. This book took a bit longer to get through because there were so many details, I found myself going back to check on what I had heard. I listened to this as an audio book and glad I did. Roy Dotirice, the narrator was excellent. His use of inflection and voice variations made the book even more exciting. Taking a break before reading the next book as this one was over 47 hours of listening.
