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.
I actually haven't finished listening because I can't stand how every character sounds old. stories like this one should not be read by an old man. no offers to narrator but poor choice by audible. I just listened to A Wise Man's Fear before this, stellar reading. I could barely understand the old man reading Feast for Crows.
Arya and Petyr are voiced differently, but it's not that big of a deal once you get used to it.
I loved this series of books and the man reading the books is very talented. What I didn't like in this version was that he changed how he pronounced some of the names in the last 3 books (Gilly, Brienne). He also changed how he did the voices of some of the characters as well. I wish he was consistent with the first 3 books.
This book was not good at all. I hung in there as long as I could and finished about 3/4 of the book. I am not a person who ever leaves books unfinished but this time I quit. The original story was lost and the feel of the series was gone. Not worth the time or money!
The narrator changes how he pronounces names and places differently from one book to the next and one chapter to the next. It is maddening!!
I was frustrated by this book! I felt that the new characters introduced were unnecessary and a lot of the old characters were not mentioned.
Detrice is so monotonous. After the first three books you realize you've been spending 140 something hours with him and the voice in your head starts to sound like his, which is normally part of the audiobook experience I admit. But the content in feast for crows can't hold it up.
