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.
