I had a really hard time getting through this book the story itself was boring it focuses on more minor characters and almost nothing of import happens in the whole book. The narrorator also seemed to have forgotten how he read the previous 3 books the voices for so many characters changed it was confusing and annoying. Eventually I'll get book 5 but after this one I need a break from the series
This review comes after the third time through listening and I think that this might be one of my favorite and not because of the progress story as a whole but because of the hints of the story's future.
Struggled through the beginning and middle. Performance was fair. The ending was masterful. It is a story that can really stick with you for quite some time. Thank you
It hasn't been my favorite of the series so far but the narrator is amazing. I will be listening to the entire series pretty much just to hear this amazing entertainer.
Just finished the book. It was great. A nice change of charachters and pace. Interesting twists.
Narration was a painfull and unfortunately something to endure in order to grasp the great story and world of GOT.
In my case I could only listen to book 4 during my commute and reading was not an option at the time. So I suffered through it, almost giving up many times, only to push past the spitting, wet sniffs and unbearable voices, all for the love of the story.
It is not an easy book to narrate, I'll give that much, but this is so FAR from what the book deserves, it just a shame.
Now, if you like to hear hours and hourd of 90 years old toothless men and women with an irish accent, all with flem, cough, rasp and slurps... You will enjoy this.
I will admit one thing, when not doing a character or voice, the normal voice of the narrator is great and sounds like a master story teller... But this book is 80% dialogue...
I will READ the next one and enjoy the like of Pete Bradburry (#demoncycle) when listening to an audiobook.
Note to Audible: I will PAY for all 5 audiobooks in a heartbeat at full price if this series is re-issued with a new narrator!
Last but not least: thank you Mr Martin for the world you created!
