I started reading this and then I stopped at page 600 and realized that the series was too far in and I wanted to catch up. it was hard to understand him. it got a bit annoying. The guy makes up girls voices and he sounds ridiculous and almost distracting. tryion does not need to sound like a girl. he has three voices. monotone would best be fitting.
Yes, but I would advise them that the narration is very hard to listen to. If audiobooks weren't so much more convenient than paper ones for me, I'd switch back to the paperbacks knowing that these books are all narrated by a weirdo. They seem to have picked him for his ability to do English-ish accents, and not for any reading or characterization ability.
How it fits into the overall Song of Ice and Fire.
No. Just no. He just can't seem to do female or children's voices. Or even young men, really. It's funny how Melisandre sounds like Jafar from The Lion King though. Other than that, everybody sounds the same: like wizened old crones or large fat men. Their accents change somewhat but don't seem to be consistent in any meaningful way.
Several that might have, if Roy Dotrice hadn't made them comical with his ridiculous voices.
God, I wish somebody would go out on a limb for once and use a female narrator. There are so many strong female characters in ASOIAF, it would have been really nice. It's truly just ludicrous to hear Roy Dotrice reading Danaerys' thoughts about sex.
He does well with the plot and characters. His problem may be resolving all the subplots.
The end. Excellent wrap up- left me wanting more.
Phenomenal performance! Roy has a deep range of voices- young to old, female (a bit strange) and male. My only issue is that some pronunciation and voices tend to change from one book to another.
Yes! I kept listening at work, and at home, beyond my commute so I could continue with the story line.
Would love to find additional works of this caliber.
The best book yet! They keep getting better and better, I am addicted to the game of thrones. It's hard to stop listening to and have given up several hours of sleep just to finish parts!
After finishing this book I feel like I am on the edge of a cliff and what lies ahead of me is something incredible. This book finished a few story lines and started a few more...I can feel the climax to the story coming closer and closer. I'm looking forward to the coming books. You know nothing....John Snow!
