I previously PRAISED Roy Dotrice's performance of the books in this series. I struggled through the defeating sludge of uninspired data that made up most of A Feast For Crows, just to get back to the story- and BACK TO ROY DOTRICE. What a catastrophe. How can an actor of his magnitude think that a fourteen year old beautiful willful queen should sound like a lowborn troll? This is not the Denaris Stormborn of three books past. WHAT HAPPENED ROY? Unfortunately, the narrator's reading of the female voices so vital to this story have made this book IRRITATING rather than pleasurable to listen to. What a way to kill what once was a such a good thing. Women should not sound like old men. Wassup Random House?????? Is nobody listening?
Jodi Picoult has proven that she is a master at unearthing a powerful, moving story no matter what the subject matter. She has become my go- to author when I need complex, emotion filled human drama ( outside of my own house!). MY SISTERS KEEPER has great characters, a great storyline, wonderful readers, and an ending that kicked me right in the gut. Five stars all around.
