This one is my lest favorite, so far, in the series of ASoIaF. I say that only cause it's shorter than the others... That said, it's still a great book... best series of books.
This reading was done many years after he read the first three novels, and he did not put near the effort of voice work into this as the previous books, some character's voices even change multiple times throughout the narrative.
He is also inconsistent in pronunciation of names and places and just generally seems to be phoning it in.
obviously everybody knows how good game of thrones is.
the reader is very articulate. He's easy to understand and does different voices for the characters.
unfortunately he sometimes uses different voices for the characters and since the last book he pronounces some of the names wrong. it doesn't kill my enjoyment but it does break my immersion every time he says "Kate" lyn stark.
I would say probably was a well-sepend time, although, in my opinion, this book is the weakest of five tomos. Here, we see how the people is surviving, while the Game of Thrones follows. this way. There is no way to know which direction the pieces going to. A interesting book, but not so good as the previous.
For me the least interesting thing is the most part of the book, the story is telling from Brienne or Sam's point of view - and they are not exciting caracters.
Roy was perfect. His voice is excellent ans match with this story. I can't imagine this series without Roy's narrations.
Roy Dotrice is phenomenal as always in his performance. AFFC is arguably slower-paced than its predecessor, but the richness and depth of the story more than makes up for the lack of epic battles. Cercei's descent into paranoia and Jamie's reconciliation with his handicap are the strongest motifs of the book, together with Brienne's quest to find the Stark daughters. This book depicts vividly the aftermath of war as it takes its grim toll on the soldiers and smallfolk alike.
