    "I LOVE GAME OF THRONES! The series is absolutely beautiful, and now that it's over, I really wanna get started on the books but im a lazy reader. I checked this one out and it's really the best audiobook for traveling esp since it has a great plot, it's long and takes time! The voice actor speaks really great too!"
