Griffin is in many ways just as extraordinary as his fans say: he captures nuance almost as well as Timothy West, and for the most part his accent is excellent.
If, however, like me, you know the proper British pronunciation of words like "Derby," "issue," and "Michaelmas," you may well, like me, find Griffin's ignorance of such things incredibly distracting. I would still recommend this audiobook very highly, but I do wish I had thought to verify the authenticity of the reading first.
Thoughts on starting _A Feast for Crows_ on Audiobook: 1) by book 4 of a massive epic, it would probably be better just to skip the exposition. It seems to go on for hours, in the aggregate. 2) The switch from Roy Dotrice is as jarring as everyone says, and John Lee is just not Dotrice's equal, or close to it. 3) Listening at 3X speed cures 2, more or less.
