I just finished "A Feast for Crows" performed by John Lee and loved listening to it. I had read hardcopy of the first three books previously. I quickly purchased "A Dance with Dragons". My heart sank as I began to listen to it. Tyrion sounded like an Irish leprechaun with speech impediment. Danny also sounded like an Irish leprechaun with a speech impediment.
I've been listening to books on tape, CD and ebooks for over 30 years and I have probably heard over 500 books. This is the WORST reading performance of a book I've ever heard. I just checked and it appears that Roy Dotrice read the first three books also. I wanted to purchase those and have the whole series in audio format but I guarantee that won't happen now!
This is such a wonderful series and Martin is a wonderful writer. It is a crying shame that the experience has to be ruined by a bad performance. I'm going to finish listening to the book since I already purchased it, but my recommendation is to buy this one in hardcopy and enjoy the read!
I absolutely love these Honor Harrington novels. I've spent my morning and evening drives for the past 9 months listening through the series. Weber has a way of creating characters you love to hate along with the ones you love to love. And when the bad guys finally get their due "rewards" ... it is SO sweet! I'm on book 11 so I look forward to the next several months as I finish the series. I highly recommend you join the Honor Harrington family!
What a great cast of characters! I hated to see this series end. Great plot, great writing and great listening. Thanks Stieg.
