I love the complexity of it.
Aria is my favorite character because she is so smart.
Roy brings a convincing distinct voice to each of the characters.
It is too long to listen to all in one sittng.
Super Swashbuckling Sequel
A continuation of a story of interesting people that were portrayed in such a fascinating fashion that it was an exiting movie in my head.
I think I have because I recognized his voice and his portrayal of characters is so good that there is no break in the action when characters change but he portrays them all so well. I was just thinking that it will be hard to find anyone as good as he is.
I wanted to continue with whatever repetitive menial task I was doing and actually looked forward to it because I could continue my "reading"! I really worried about the younger characters who have such hard decisions to make and whose lives took such a turn that their very existence depends on the skills that they learned in their father's palace and from their mentors.
My house will be much more tidy if I continue to use this series as my "Housecleaning" companion. I usually use these books while fixing fence or driving the tractor and look forward to long stretches of work with these type of books and noise cancelling headphones.
This is a great second book in a series that I really enjoy. The characters are fantastic and the plot is complex and interesting (and unpredictable). The narration is good, not my favorite narrator, but it's an incredibly complex series and he does a good job of keeping characters distinct.
Holds your attention, I felt like I was in the story myself
The unexpected story plots
The inflections in his voice are PERFECT for the diverse characters in the book
I have read this novel and I must admit the narration and use of different voices for each character enhances the story.
Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter
After the death of the usurper king, no true heir remains, so many scramble to claim the iron throne.
It's all starting to run together. Generally the relationship between Cercie and Tyrian.
Tyrian Lannester. Hands down.
Mostly just enthralled.
Faster paced story with fewer side stories
Possibly..... Long series of a tedious and medacious nature are a waste of time
Premise was promising
I have A Clash of Kings downloaded on my ipod - i can't wait to go to the gym or ride my bike or just drive to work - so i can listen!
i like that he matches his voice to the characters - it is easier to keep track of all of the many characters in the book
yes - but impossible because of the number of hours
A narrator that knows what they're doing and a storyline that crisply moves forward.
There almost 0 joy or happiness in all of the books! And I'm already half through the last. No one wants a series completely made of tradjedy and no triumph. There has to be SOME triumph, SOMETIMES.
Absolutely not. I don't know if he thought changing voices of concrete characters was a good idea or if h honestly didn't know or realize he did it. All I can say is if he don't know, he should have that's part of the job one would think. And if he did know and thought it was a good idea, then why is he still being paid to read?
BEWARE. The voices get worse and worse. By the time you get to dance of dragons almost every girl has the voice of Egret the wildling girl that was with Jon snow. When I heard daneyres with the voice if egret in the last book I just about flipped. It's so bad I'm very seriously thinking about turning it off and just waiting for the series on tv.
