Epic getting Epic-er
Lifeless and listless. Maybe I got spoiled by Jefferson Mays' wonderful performance, but Mr. Davies' narration doesn't come close. Many of the characters sound the same; either they are southern (US) American, vaguely British, or blandly neutral. Mr. Davies definitely did not give the characters the life that Mr. Mays did. I laughed out loud the first time Avesarala appeared and she just sounded like an old woman, not the whip sharp politico that she was voiced previously. I really hope that Audible will have Mr. Mays back for future installments of this series. I really wish that Audible would re-record this novel with Mr. Mays, and I wonder why the decision was made to switch horses mid-race.
There is definitely some good banter between the Rocinante crew as usual, but unfortunately, the narration made these witticisms fall flat more often than not.
Bring back Jefferson Mays!!!
