I disagree with many of the comments up to this point. Yes there is a different reader and yes there are some slight differences in pronunciation but nothing that makes the book unenjoyable. True he's no Dotrice but sometimes things change and there is no help for it. Also there are not nearly as many new characters as some of the other reviews imply and I didn't find anything confusing about the timeline. In general I'd agree that there is less substance to this book and it is unfortunate that you see less of some of the characters that you've learned to like (of course Martin being who he is he's killed a number of them off so its really no wonder). This book comes across as a place filler between the last and next book in the series but if you've enjoyed the books up to this point I'd say that its worth continuing. Just be warned going in that there are some changes both in the narration as well as in the book itself. Don't expect it to be something its not and its a perfectly enjoyable book.
