    The War of the Five Kings has ripped Westeros apart. The bloodthirsty, treacherous and cunning Lannisters occupy the Iron Throne, with allies as ruthless as themselves. Lord Frey was host at the Red Wedding, so called for the massacre of the guests, their screams unheard above the music of the feast. Euron Crow’s Eye is as black a pirate as ever raised a sail, sworn to deliver the whole of Westeros to the ironborn. No less to be feared are their enemies. The Starks of Winterfell and the Martells of Dorne seek vengeance for their dead.

    Simon says: "Whose voice is whose?"
    "Dotrice almost manages to ruin it all."

    Story

    I enjoy Roy Dotrice's reading of most of the book, but his voice characterizations ruined my immersion and drove me away from this title on audio.

    It is not that he only has five character voices, nor is it that would all fit better in a pantomime. It is not even that he cannot manage the relatively simple matter of keeping the same voice for the same character across the different volumes.

    What made this title impossible for me to listen to was the fact that Dotrice cannot even manage to keep the same voice for the same character in the same piece of dialogue.

    Oh well, I always felt like I was cheating listening to something I hadn't read, so I 'll just stick to the kindle - hard as that is while walking the dog.
