Publisher's Summary

"En ces temps-là nimbés de brume, où la belle saison pouvait durer des années et la mauvaise toute une vie, se multiplièrent un jour des présages alarmants. Au nord du Mur colossal qui protégeait le royaume, se massèrent soudain des forces obscures. Au sud, l'ordre établi chancela. Le meurtre et la corruption, la lâcheté et le mensonge enserrèrent inexorablement le trône convoité..."

Dans la lignée des Rois maudits et d'Excalibur, Le Trône de fer plonge l'auditeur, sans lui laisser reprendre souffle, dans un univers de délices et de feu. L'épique et le chevaleresque côtoient sans cesse le vil et le démoniaque. La bravoure et la loyauté se heurtent à la duplicité et à la fourberie. Mais dans ce tourbillon d'aventures cruelles, ce sont finalement l'amour, la tendresse, l'indestructible force de l'amitié qui rayonnent au-dessus des ténèbres.

Abridged

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

If it had been unabridged.


Has Le Trône de fer (Le Trône de fer 1) put you off other books in this genre?

No


What does Bernard Métraux bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

His characterisations have a depth, some of them are better than Dottrice's versions in the English version.


Any additional comments?

For the price of these books (remember that these have been split into sever tomes), I would at least expect that each book be unabridged. They aren't. Apart from skipping a few "he said, she said" the narration also leaves out chunks of paragraphs or even entire paragraphs. As I'm reading it with the book (as a second language learner) I find these deletions very frustrating, and generally can't understand why it was made this way.
