Absolutely. This is a gem of a series
Not up to par with the others. This book lacks direction.
He changes voices of main characters from past books
The weakest link of a fantastic book series. This feels like a transitional book.
Good book overall. I found it better than its predecessor. A little slow in several areas, but not too bad. Several twists and turns that are unexpected.
Annoying that pronunciation of some names changed after the first three, creating a minor distraction. This book is too deep in for that.
amazing book and amazing reading by Roy Dotrice.
stannis and jon snow
only listened to him doing game of thrones but they are all good.
amazing book series read them all.
This book is not only a great story but also a great peice where the words seem to flow and the way in which the descriptions and battles going you can really feel as if you where really there. A peice of Art.
Yes, I would listen again. In fact, I'm sure I will. While I wait for George to complete Book 6, I will listen to the entire series again in anticipation.
Tyrion Lanaster is an imp, in more ways than one. His sense of irony, along with his acerbic sense of humor speaks to me of all those who are considered "different", but who are fortunate enough to accept it.
Too many to mention.
Always-made me laugh and made me mad. George's idea of shaking things up by killing off favored characters is enough to make anyone mad, even Lord Eddard Stark.
George, keep them coming. Your imagination is incredible and your story telling is fantastic - a truly winning combination.
There are way too many characters in this book and simply boring! Roy's narration says it all! He's tired of it too! The series was great but come-on end already! Please-before you start-get a different audio.
Give me Classics!
I enjoyed both the print and audio versions of this book. Having read the series before listening to the audio, it was awesome to see the story come to life. I also caught new facts and information i might have missed in my reading.
Again, amazing the subtle differences in his voices for the characters. How dose he make each of the hundred characters sound unique?!
If that were possible. YES
I am a 27 year old nurse pursuing a nurse practitioner degree. My favorite book genres are: fantasy, science fiction, medicine and sociology
As always, Roy Dotrice is fantastic, and his colorful, rich voice has changed the way I feel about the way the character's voices should sound. His Tyrion is perfect, he captures every bit of biting wit and color, though in this book we go without Tyrion, mostly.
It was hard to go through an entire book without Daenerys or some of my other favorite characters in it, but it did build a great deal of anticipation for when I moved onto the 5th book. I could have used less Queen Cersei, but only because she is mad as the hatter and despicable to me, and as such credit goes to Martin for crafting the character and making me feel so passionately about her.
I almost didn't listen to this because I was so disappointed with the lack of almost anything happening in A Feast for Crows, but this has picked up the pace, going back to some of the best characters that were ignored in Book 4. Still, the pace is slow, jumping back and forth between characters with very little action at times.
The narrator is the same one from Book 4. He has about four or five accents for dialogue, and usually chooses one that is doesn't fit the character very well. Half the characters sound like pirates.
I would definitely recommend this audiobook, as much for the story as for the telling. GRR Martin liked Roy Detrice's performance so much that he gave him a role in the series on HBO. I've read the books, and now decided to listen to them, and the story just gets better and better.
The characters are amazing, complex and fascinating... Tyrion remains one of my favorite out all the books I've read, and that's quite a lot.
I've listened to all five books of Ice and Fire, and I find him to be perfect for the job.
Rare are the authors who can make you utterly dislike a character at the beginning of his story, only to end up getting rather found of the guy in the middle. This is a book where (without giving away the plot) you have to take a break from reading to be able to digest the twists and turns of the story.
Be warned though, tome 6 is not finished yet, and GRR Martin is notoriously slow in finishing his books.
