I have listened to many audio books, and for me the book is made by the narration. Under the Dome is no exception. Raul Esparza is fabulous. Of course in this case you also have to love the way Steven King winds out a novel, and he does it in classic King style. If you liked The Stand you will like this book too.
I am committed to reading all of George R.R. Martin's books however I will not do another audio book narrated by Roy Dotrice. I read regular books, Kindle books and audio books. I would do another audiobook if I knew it was not narrated by Roy Dotrice. Sorry Roy!
I've also been watching the HBO series and it's so nice to know more of the back story.
An audio book is all about how well the narrator can tell the story, take on different voices for different characters, etc. You need to be able to get lost in the story. Listing to Mr. Dotrice is painful.
Amazon will get my money to read future books. No more audio books for me narrated by Mr. Dotrice.
