I would highly recommend this series to a mature audience. Not for teens
An incredible read, and an incredible listen, as well. George Martin is a modern genius. The entire series is exquisite.
Roy Dotrice does an admirable job with a monumental task. I'm not a huge fan of some of his vocal choices for certain characters, but it's still a quality performance.
If this is a second, or third listen, I highly recommend looking up the chapter arrangements for "Feast Dance" from Boiled Leather's blog site. It really puts the two books together well, and chronologically at that. AFFC does lack a bit, but when properly mingled with ADWD, it is awesome.
Definitely better than the 4th, but really slow moving plot. Worth listening to with some great narration, but I'm not sure I'd have enjoyed taking the time to read it.
Hopefully the next book is better than these last two.
I love how he reads
I have received my other books 1-4 from others places and this is the first one I have gotten from this site. I do not like the fact that the chapters do not have visible titles, they only have chapter 1, 2, 3 and so on when I have these books on other apps they show the name of the chapters for instances Jamie>jamie1 and so on .
Royce is a great narrator. Sometimes grammar can be lost in audio but not with him. He has voices for every character and you know if they are speaking or thinking. George RR Martin...I loved and hated you as I finished the last chapter. You make me fall in love with characters and then you rip them away from me. Hurry up and finish the next book old man.
As good as the rest. Yeah, lots of the voices sound the same. It's one guy doing it, though. Sure I wish half the characters didn't sound like pirates, but you get used to it.
These books are sooo good - my only wish is that George RR Martin would give us closure to some of the storylines, it's cruel to make us wait 5-6 years until the next book will come out!
