My first being A Storm of Swords. As with the others, Roy Dotrice does an outstanding performance. And anyone who is a fan of the series will not be disappointed as far as the continuing storyline.
Great book. A little jarring that the characters voices changed but you get used to it.
I'll never stop listening. ... smashing. only way to drive my truck now ...brilliant sound
I listened to all three previous GoT audiobooks, and was very impressed by the story and the performance. In this book, however, the reader pronounces character names completely different than in all previous books. It almost felt like he read this one first, and didn't seem to be performing the characters comfortably. "Lady Cat-Lynn" was suddenly "Lady Katelyn" a small change, but enough to feel grating during a 30-plus hour book.
Overall the book is amazing, just like the rest of the series.
However, for some unholy reason Roy Dotrice chose to wait until Book 4 to casually change up the pronunciation of nearly every name, and the manner of each character's speech.
Heaven help you if you are the slightest bit OCD while listening. I've pulled out several fistfuls of hair and yelled myself hoarse at my poor unsuspecting stereo over the abrupt and inexplicable destruction of all I've held dear for the past 3 books.
If you do this to me again Dotrice, I will set fire to everything you have ever loved.

Just as great as the others....really enjoying these stories and all the characters. I simply cannot imagine how George RR Martin keeps such a complicated plot straight but he does.
there seems to be some annoying static and some odd gargle in the background every now and then. Not really enough to spoil the story, but enough that I couldn't listen to it as long as I did the first three.
