I'm usually fine with long books but this one is so long it kinda takes away from the enormity of some of the events that take place in it.
Roy is awful...You really struggle to stay in the story with his jumbled and ever changing of character accents. This really should be re narrated.
Loved it. Roy is amazing, though sometimes i find his pronounciations contrary to my own. His performance of all characters is nothing short of excellent and that of Dolorous Edd Tollet is hilarious and perfectly suits the character. George has developed a world so in depth and detailed it is hard not to lose yourself in it. you can go whole chapters and not have much of anything happen, but then realize that what wasn't much was really setting you up to love a character or to give them more backstory. masterful work all around
At first I didn't realize this book was taking place at the same time as the previous book so I was a bit confused. I also had trouble remembering who all of the characters were. Does the written book have a list of all the players? That would be helpful. Roy's definitely having trouble with the female voices and that's a bit distracting.
The story has really developed in this book. I'm glad I read it, because I believe there will be a lot of characters and action from this book not included in the show. I would say the major downside is that Roy changed the voices he used for characters- really miss the original voicing, which I think was better.
