narrator roy dotrice does an excellent job with all the voices. only negative thing about these books would be if I started reading them like 20 years ago when they first came out and have to wait for so long for the follow up. then again you can't hurry a good story
I gave the second one a try, but the performance was just as bad as the first book. The narrator might be good in other types of performances, but you can hear spittle flying out of his mouth when he tries to narrate fatter characters, and it's just gross to listen to. I love this series, but this narrator is awful.
