so many errors, not like the other books as far as name pronunciation. it seems as if you can almost hear pages turning and character
voices are way too different to enjoy.
If you have been listening to the series voiced by Roy Dotrice, this is a terrible experience listening to A Feast for Crows. There was a long delay between when Roy voiced this book and when he voiced the previous three. He has altered how he pronounces names, cities, and other terminology. He also uses different voices then he used for the same characters in previous books. For instance: Aria's voice is now the same voice he used for Egret. Most voices are different which is a constant distraction and frustration.
It's worth considering listening to another performer.
Fantastic novel. Very well written. One of the best series ever put on paper. Listening to a novel of this size is also just so much easier than actually sitting down and reading it. Makes long commutes the best part of every day! My only complaint was that the audio wasn't very well balanced compared to the previous books. It took quite a bit of adjustment on my car before I could tweak it to be able to understand the words spoken while driving. Narrator was great as always, though I don't understand why he changed his voice impersonations in this book from the previous 3 books. I liked his old ones a little better, but by the second half of the book I hardly noticed. Overall, I was very pleased.
This book so far has indulged more in the details of each house and their particular plans for dominance. It became a little tiresome to keep track of each of the players and their allies, motives, plots and plans, fears and setbacks. But it seems necessary to build the plot in a way that covers the whole world that Martin has set up for us in this series. And it still had plenty of intrigue and action to keep me interested. One more story issue is (spoiler alert) when characters are brought back from the dead. This Duex ex machina has always seemed cheap to me, even when it fits the overall world the story is set in. Yes, there is magic and dragons and wild fire, but bringing back the dead is a plot device I've never liked. The only big issue I have with the narration is that the character "Little Finger" has a completely different accent than when the audiobook series started. With so many characters to keep track of, this glitch is perfectly acceptable in my mind. Overall I love this series, and will listen to each new installment. For the length of the audiobooks they are a steal for the Audible credit price, and usually last me at least a month, usually two. Looking forward to starting the next book in the series!
After narrating the 3 previous books in the series the narrator seems to have forgotten how to pronounce the names of several of the main characters and places, and a few of the characters have weird accents that make no sense. It makes it a bit of a frustrating and distracting listening experience if you are following on from the previous books.
The book is well written and read, but I had a lot of problems streaming it. It stopped streaming when in forth part of the book and a message came up saying I needed to delete file and upload in high quality. When that did not work I tried normal quality again, that did not work either. After a while I figured out how to download only the fourth part of the book. Luckily I knew exactly where I was because audible could not find it. Other than that a great book!! I love George rr Martin!
I love this series. I don't understand why in the fourth book the narrator would change his pronunciation of the names of two main characters. Extremely distracting.
