If there were something I could change it would be that Roy would keep the voices the character voices the same between all the books. It seems that the voices have changed dramatically completely different. I really do not understand why this happened you would think that the director and Roy Dotrice should be able to get that correct. I mean its really really important!
Voices were not correct at all not sure its the narrator's fault!
The chapters don't line up with the breaks on the navigation bar, making it very difficult to keep track of your place or navigate to different sections (and resulting in strange breaks in the middle of chapters). This was the same issue that plagued the third book in the series.
No, i like the series of books but Roy Dotrice's reading ruined it for me. He reads Danyerses voice exactly like Tyrion. He cannot at all do a good range of voices. Lots of other narrators do a wonderful range of voices, but not Dotrice
I was disappointed to find that Mr. Dotrice, for whatever reason, seemed to have forgotten or changed the various voices he had been using for characters since the first book. It was jarring that suddenly main characters were depicted with different accents and cadence to their speech. I've had to put it aside for a while so that I could come back to it with fresher ears.
Yes, I enjoy his work but I probably wouldn't read another long series.
Oh absolutely! The story isn't resolved yet :)
Roy is an incredible reader. The story is so well built - the characters are expressed from the inside out - incredible depth - creating incredible visuals for me. Wow.
My god he has endurance. Excellent voice. Perfect for this genre. I think it would be hard to have to come up with the voices for all the characters, - some of the accents (East Indian, French, pirate etc) were a bit too cliche'. But I'll take this over boring reading any day. I understand it may be very hard to follow without variation in the characters voices as the story is rich and deep, and so are the characters.
The narration of Roy Dotrice takes a proverbial shit over his own previous work. Is there any possibility that this could be re-done. I mean book 4 was bad enough and the change painfull enough. But all the changes transform its beautiful pace and rhythm. So sad
Arya, yet the voice Dotrice gives her now seems like a massive accident in a worl deemed for perfection.
He destroyed my grand memories about the characters voices
Well, when winds of winter comes along I dont care anymore about Dotrice's appearance. Bring John along, whatever. Maybe he will remember the voices. Or a full cast deal would be awesome.
Yeah, tell Dotrice that if he wont take the decency of taking his work seriously we fans for sure won' t have the determination to ask for him anymore. An artist is only as required as his last work Roy, dont you ever forget that.
John Snow leading his men
John Snow died... wtf?
and what happens to Aria and the other sister....???
I haven't even listened to the entire book yet.
Changes to character's voices were egregious. Daenerys sounding like a irish troll made me stop listening immediately and come here. I won't listen to the rest.
Hello, My name is Levi Brousseau. I'm on a life long mission to find stories that blow my mind.
Roy did drop the ball on this one. i read a lot of reviews on how bad Roy did. to his defense it was not that bad. mainly voices where mixed up.
This book was not what i expected,story kind of bragged.like it was just thrown together. book 4 an 5 were just kind of a let down. hopefully book 6 makes up for it
If you have preserved through all the previous books, you are like me. You hope something will be resolved before YOU die. But no, characters just die and everyone else???? What happened to Roy Dotrice. He have a big brain fart and forget the voices he used for each character in previous books? I agree with others that I always thought the women sounded like stupid little girls or hags, not royal, purposeful women. What a disappointment! Is Martin really going to write another book and when? I'm sorry but I was hoping for something better.
