Roy Dotrice is great. I've heard that this book is actually better when you listen to it versus reading it and I couldn't agree more.
narrator, character voice changing
book 1 and book 2
yes, but couldn't, I listen to the book while driving.
narrator does on hell of job
Yes, the characters are deep enough to need to reread to follow
Samwel Tarley, the underdog, steps up
He does a fabulous job with briaene, samwel, and all the sound affects
Not possible, but you hate to put it down
You know what you get when you listen to the third book in this series: excitement, wars, love, deceit, horror and joy. At first I thought Roy Dotrice was a bit 'too much' - very theatrical - but after a while I learned to really enjoy his reading. He managed to give every character a different voice and personality, which made it really easy to follow the story. There are many characters to keep track of, so in this sense it was actually better to listen to the book than to read it (as I have done with the previous two).
I loved it!
This book has some interesting characters and a lot of unexpected turns. But overall the series is very long-winded. I'm glad I read it but I can't say I think it's a fabulous series. It's just a series that goes on and on.
I would recommend this book to people that love the long sagas. I'm watching it on TV also and it's great to see and hear it. The narrator is fantastic.
Pillars of the Earth with more fantasy.
Roy Dotrice does a great job on the different voices. He has a great voice for reading books.
I love the character development in this story, there's plenty of violence and fantasy, but the political intrigue and character development make this a very compelling story.
While I enjoyed the story this tended to have a touch more of the language one wants to hear it's still a good story! I keep buying them so they are doing something right!
Hooked on this ...love it!! The narration is the best I have ever listened to. Roy Dotrice is amazing. I have listened to books for over twenty years and no one compares!
I love all of the Diana Gabaldon Outlander series. When you find a good series to listen to, it is agonizing to wait for the next book to come out.
