By George R. R. Martin, Yes. But not another Series by Roy Dotrice.
If the narrator would have been as good as he was in the first 3 books.
Hope they got their money back from Roy Dotrice.

cat wait for the next one!
great performance by Mr. Dotrice.
whisked away to Westeros once again & again.
bring on next book of the series
Another great story in the series, but the changes in pronunciation of names and places is jarring, especially when it changes within the same paragraph.
The narration is not up to the same quality of its three predecessors.
I enjoyed Dotrice's proformance, though he does mess up an accent or two throughout the 30 hours.
The book itself is enjoyable, but nothing much happens in terms of major plot lines.
One of the best, love the whole series.
If you watch Game of Thrones the books are still really good, they fill in information and make the show better. You will still be sunrised, they change enough that in a lot of ways they differ.
Storyline was very good (the view into Cersei's head was illuminating; she is a narcissistic sociopath). It was good to get a break from some of the major characters. Roy Dotrice is an amazing narrator, but this book was a bit of a departure in that the voices he had been using for some memorable characters (Samwell Tarley, Petyr Baelish, Dolorous Edd) were totally different than in the former 3 books. That took a while getting used to. I guess it's tough to remember all the diff voices!
I have been captivated by the previous three novels in the Song of Ice and Fire Series. I truly believe that George R.R. Martin is brilliant in his creation of the world of Westeros and the characters therein. However, this fourth book leaves much to be desired. From the confusing epilogue, which has no connection to the story, until the very last chapter, there is very little movement whatsoever. There were virtually no memorable moments, twists, or even deaths that made the book worthy to be held up against its predecessors. Roy Detrice delivers a decent performance, but it is true that he changed the pronunciation of several main characters' names, which can be very confusing. Also the tonality he uses for Arya and Samwell Tarly are completely different than the previous books.
All in all, you're better off reading a summary of this novel online rather than wasting 40+ hours of your life hearing nothing but descriptions and dialogue.
