I have listened to the first 3 books from the same reader Roy Dotrice on Audible, but for some reason it was extremely hard to pay attention at certain points since he changed the way he pronounced names. example: instead of "kat-lynn" he uses the name Caitlin. If it's the same reader, why does this change!!?
All of the Song of Ice and Fire stories are outstanding however it seems Roy forgot which voice was who between this and the last. More than likely this is because there were years between his readings yet only hours between my listenings. You get over it after a while but on occasion my brain would dub over the new with the old. Little Finger was the most noticeable. Still going to listen on regardless, it's only a minor annoyance.
I'm a very in-depth reader. I love books more than I like tea. That's saying a lot. Although both are great together. Also a writer myself
Weddings are of particular significance in the series. The culture, language, captivation amplifies a story much like our own but so originally based that the story seems on the verge of reality, minus the blood magic and giants. The book is truly stunning. The deaths start piling and you fear for your favorite character's life but at the same are so astonished with the cumulating deaths that you have to ask yourself. What's next? Exhilarating, pacing, and worth the wait. I'd say it's the best book yet in the series, but I'm highly anticipating the release of Winds of Winter.
A Feast for Crows is similar to A Clash of Kings, the second book of the Ice and Fire series. The parallels are entreatingly similar. The kings themselves, the fight for power, and underlying of justice. This guy stands on top and then this guy stands on top and it all means nothing in the end and only one thing is certain. Death. Well, maybe.
Not particularly, cause could never finish a book that massive in a short period of time, but it was certainly enthralling and it was great to pace myself throughout the story making similar connections in my own life. These books are read not all at once, but in time. Cause it is worth it.
This book is the best so far that I know of. The stories are always intriguing and you're always wanting more. HBO has done a well portrayal and I give them props for carrying out George R.R. Martin's work.
The story was quite good and so was the performance. However the pronunciation of names(pet-ire to Peter, Ash-a-ee to Ass-ai etc..)and the sounds of voices diverged from the previous books despite no change in narrator. I was mildly put off.
I would venture to guess there was a delay in production between the two or something. While I find it forgivable and it doesn't take away from the book, it did cause me to lower my rating of performance to 4/5.
