Description

GAME OF THRONES: A NEW ORIGINAL SERIES, NOW ON HBO.

Few books have captivated the imagination and won the devotion and praise of readers and critics everywhere as has George R. R. Martin’s monumental epic cycle of high fantasy that began with A Game of Thrones. Now, in A Feast for Crows, Martin delivers the long-awaited fourth book of his landmark series, as a kingdom torn asunder finds itself at last on the brink of peace . . . only to be launched on an even more terrifying course of destruction.

A Feast for Crows

It seems too good to be true. After centuries of bitter strife and fatal treachery, the seven powers dividing the land have decimated one another into an uneasy truce. Or so it appears. . . . With the death of the monstrous King Joffrey, Cersei is ruling as regent in King’s Landing. Robb Stark’s demise has broken the back of the Northern rebels, and his siblings are scattered throughout the kingdom like seeds on barren soil. Few legitimate claims to the once desperately sought Iron Throne still exist—or they are held in hands too weak or too distant to wield them effectively. The war, which raged out of control for so long, has burned itself out.

But as in the aftermath of any climactic struggle, it is not long before the survivors, outlaws, renegades, and carrion eaters start to gather, picking over the bones of the dead and fighting for the spoils of the soon-to-be dead. Now in the Seven Kingdoms, as the human crows assemble over a banquet of ashes, daring new plots and dangerous new alliances are formed, while surprising faces—some familiar, others only just appearing—are seen emerging from an ominous twilight of past struggles and chaos to take up the challenges ahead.

©2007 George R.R. Martin (P)2011 Random House

Critiques

"Of those who work in the grand epic-fantasy tradition, Martin is by far the best.... [He] is a tense, surging, insomnia-inflicting plotter and a deft and inexhaustible sketcher of personalities.... This is as good a time as any to proclaim him the American Tolkien." ( Time)
"The only fantast series I'd put on a level with J.R.R. Tolkein's The Lord of the Rings…. It's a fantasy series for hip, smart people, even those who don't read fantasy…. If you're new to the series, you must begin with Book 1, A Game of Thrones. Once you're hooked…. you'll be like the rest of us fans, gnawing your knuckles until book 5” (Marta Salij, Detroit Free Press)
“THE MOST impressive modern fantasy, both in terms of conception and execution, is George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire.… A masterpiece that will be mentioned with the great works of fantasy.” ( Contra Costa Times)

Excellent book, sometimes let down by average narration

The book itself is, unsurprisingly great. However, Dotrice’s narration, which has thus far been competent throughout the series, becomes frustrating at multiple points during this book; the main issue being gross inconsistencies between accents, not only between a particular character’s accent from the previous books (Arya switching from her standard Stark British English to some bizarre Scottish accent), or even changes to a character’s accent within this book, most notably Petyr Bailish, who changes accent 3 times during the course of the story, each different from his accent in the previous books.
Still, remains highly recommandable overall, but these inconsistencies were frustrating to listen to.

Jarring change in Dotrice's performance

If you, like me, have been listening to the Song of Ice and Fire Series as read by Roy Dotrice, then odds are you've grown accustomed to not only the delivery, but the wide range of character voices that Dotrice handles so well. You've probably come to recognize some of your favorite characters just by the voice he uses to portray them. If so, you will find A Feast for Crows to be a rather jarring listen, at least initially.

First, a bit of history. When the audio release for this book in the series was first recorded in 2005, Roy Dotrice was not available, and the book was instead read by John Lee. Many fans were perturbed by this fact, and requested an edition read by the same actor as the rest of the series. After the HBO adaptation of Game of Thrones became popular, and the fifth book in the series had seen release, the books received renewed interest. Hoping to appease this new fanbase, Random House finally relented on giving the fans their long-requested wish. Thus, it was in early 2012, nearly 7 years after the initial release, that Roy Dotrice was brought into rerecord A Feast for Crows.

It would seem, however, that in that time Dotrice has forgotten which voices belong with which characters. For example, the characteristically obsequious tone of Petyr Baelish has been replaced with a rather out-of-place gruffness with a slight brogue. Moreover, pronunciations of names have changed significantly, generally moving from a read-as-written interpretation to treating the names as archaic written forms of modern names. Brienne's name has shifted from Brai-een to Bree-anne, and Petyr's name has shifted from Pit-tire to Pete-ur. While you will quickly grow accustomed to the changes, it nonetheless feels unnecessary; Dotrice should have been professional enough to review his previous performances to stay consistent with the latest edition.

As for the story itself, the spotlight of A Feast for Crows is placed rather differently than its predecessors. Entire story lines, characters, and regions of the world will go nearly untouched throughout this entire book. While this is made up for in the sequel (which is at least partially a parallel narrative), some readers may become bored with their favorite characters being thrown to the wayside. Still, the story lines this book chooses to follow are interesting, well-written, and add to the tapestry of interwoven plots that make the series so interesting to read.

Ultimately, if you've already read the first three books of a Song of Ice and Fire, you're unlikely to be deterred by A Feast for Crows. While Dotrice's performance is inconsistent with previous entries, the quality of that performance is no less admirable. And while the focus of the story differs from its predecessors, you will still likely find yourself involved with the happenings of Westeros.

Dissapointed and insulted

You love the series, and you'll buy this... but do so with this warning...

This is purely a comment on Roy Dotrice and the producers of this "mummer's farce". He hasn't even shown enough respect for those of use who have invested over 100 hours listening to this series to even review the pronunciation of the characters we've come to love. The accents of the characters have changed so much it's confusing to follow a conversation.

Catelyn is no longer "Cat-linn" but "Kate-lyn". Petyr is not "Pet-ire" but Peter.

Any narrator worth their salt keeps track of the accents and voices they lend to their characters, when working on a series. It's a slap in the face to hear this second-rate reading of a fantastic tale.

Arya sounds like a shrivelled old woman... Jamie sounds like Arya of old...

Not happy Roy, I wish Audible gave refunds for unsatisfactory purchases.

Character voices are way off

I love this series and feel that the narrator did a good job (not great) in previous books. However, like the rest of the reviewers, the voices are so far off that its a great distraction to this wonderful story. Arya Stark for instance sounds like an old crone, whats with that?! I feel this book should be corrected by this narrator and re re released to the loyal customers who read these books. Its not fair to us and its not fair to the Author. Lastly, I feel the editor (or producer) of the audio book should be taken to task. It doesn't seem like they even listened to this or else they would have picked this up in minutes.

What happened to Roy?????

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

What didn’t you like about Roy Dotrice’s performance?

If you have invested almost a 100 hours of listening at this point to go on to book 4, be prepared for a disappointing shock! Roy Dotrice, one of the best narrators here, has totally changed course with this one! He pronounces names differently, and the characters voices! Characters we have come to love, like Sam, or for the love of God! Aria now sounds like an old crone!!! I have spent a lot on this series and am completely crushed by this, as a lover of audible books I now realize how important consistent narration is. Be Warned!!! you will have trouble paying attention to the story because of the change in characters.

Decent story, unfortunate narrator.

I love this series, and I love audible; but this is the first George R.R. Martin book for which I selected the audio version. While I simply could not put down the paperback books in this series, I could not finish listening to this narration.

I do think that the story itself is a little weaker than the previous three - two of my favorite characters, Arya and Tyrion, fade nearly into oblivion as the action pounds along, and we spend way too much time, in my humble opinion, on plot background and exposition. And why does Daenarys mostly vanish? What happened to her? Seems like she might be important, what with the dragons and all. We spend a tremendous amount of time inside the heads of folks with, from my perspective, less significant insights and back-stories, such as Brienne and random members of the Greyjoy clan.

However, the weakest part of this book is the narration. There is very little vocal differentiation between characters, and his rendering of the female characters is almost impossible to listen to. They sound like crazy old women. I have switched over to the paperback version of this book, which I am enjoying rather more. Although I almost always prefer to listen to audiobooks, and I have a serious audible addiction, this is one series I'll be completing visually instead.

Terrible narration - unlistenable

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Roy Dotrice has let us down. He has changed his pronunciation of key characters' names. He has changed characters' voices. He is inconsistent in pronunciations, flip-flopping all over the place. AND the voices he chooses are ridiculous! Sam sounds retarded, and Aria sounds like a leprechaun. I don't know what happened, but to me it sounds like Roy has dementia or is drunk, and the producer was obviously asleep at the wheel. I'm returning this, what a waste of a credit. I'm so pissed off, I really loved having this good long series lined up for listening, now I'm going to have to switch to print which has a whole different place in my life, and I'll have to find something else for listening.

Great story, awful reader

What would have made A Feast for Crows better?

Consistancy in pronunciation and voices between this book and the first three. Roy Dotrice has read 100 hours of ASOI&F to me, and then changes up the way he says major character names, without some kind of forward explaining the change? It makes the book difficult to immerse yourself in.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Feast for Crows?

Having to stop the book and rewind in order to figure out who the author was talking about, because I didn't recognize the name.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Roy Dotrice?

I would have preferred Roy Dotrice, performer of the first three novels. Not this Roy. Dotrice imposter.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Anger.

Any additional comments?

If you're a huge fan of the series, there's little doubt that you'll purchase this book too. But if you're not sold yet, end the series with A Storm of Swords and save yourself the frustration.

Is Aria auditioning for a Lucky Charms commercial?

Every time Aria speaks in this book I find myself expecting to hear her refer to the old god's as "magically delicious". This new voice is a complete departure from her voice in the first books.

And while Roy Dotrice's apparent inability to remember how he pronounced a name not only in other books but even earlier in the same paragraph is distracting, the story itself is as solid and well written as I have come to expect from Martin.

Dotrice chooses to use a mix of both his former pronunciation and the new in this book, most notably as follows.

CAT-lin and KATE-lin

Bry-EEN and BREE-en

Pee-TYR and PEE-ter

A-ria and ARI-er ("I've lost my Lucky Charms")

If he decided to pronounce Catelyn as Caitlin I could adapt but he switches constantly between the old and new pronunciations so it is difficult to become settled into listening to the tale.

Changes in Voices KILL the Whole Effect!

Loved the first 3 books with Dotrice reading them, but just about had to quit listening when Arya and Danni had different voices in this book - agh! They sound like old crones now. Also, the pronunciations are off for several characters which is annoying too. This is the weakest of the series in storyline (too many new people with too many minor tie-ins) but the narrator definitely needs to get back to voicing Arya and Danni like young women, not old hags.

Amazing and yet disturbing

I understand what everyone else have to say about the narration by Roy Dotrice. That being said I wasn't as disturbed as others were. The difference in Arya's tone is poignant yes but it isn't that mind boggling to understand. He still has that ability to capture you and after the original... shock, you once again are able to ease yourself into the book and the wonderful narration.

George R. R. Martin keeps twisting the story all over the place... As with the other books you WILL find parts of this book that leaves you saying 'Why?!', 'Seriously George?' and 'No!!!' You do see where these happenings seem to fit in the overall plot but at this point I am almost afraid of continuing to listen the book (not that I will actually stop) because I am concerned as to who he might kill next or what other twist he might throw in my face. At different points in the story you really don't know who is the bad guy/woman and you honestly don't know who to trust. At this point I am just saddened by what's going on with the Starks in general and I don't see where or how they will truly recover. I am honestly at the point now though that I would really want the good guys (whoever they are) to actually have a happy ending and the bad guys (again whoever they are) their just rewards.

Overall a great listen and a necessary listen if you are into mature fantasy literature. Just... prepare yourself.... This one too is shocking....

etwas zäh

nachdem ich die ersten 3 Bücher beinah hintereinander weg gehört habe, habe ich Band 4 immer wieder unterbrochen, um zwischendurch andere Hörbücher zu hören, und beileibe nicht nur kurze.
Das liegt zum einen sicher daran, dass Lieblingsfiguren gar nicht oder nur selten vorkommen bzw. ich neu eingeführte Personen nicht wirklich lieb gewinnen konnte, zum anderen aber auch daran, dass im Grunde auf den gut 1000 Seiten gar nicht mal so viel passiert.
Ich mochte Roy Dotrice als Sprecher, obwohl ich auch, wie SKodura, das Gefühl hatte, er spräche einige Personen anders bzw. Namen anders aus. Noch auffälliger wird das allerdings im nächsten Band.

Alles in allem absolut hörenswert, aber nicht mehr so begeisternd wie die drei vorigen Teile.

Geschichte verschleppt

Teile 1-3 waren klasse. Auch bei dem großen Umfang waren die Geschichten spannend, man konnte mit den Charakteren mitfiebern. Manchmal ausschweifend, aber immer mitreißend. 5 Sterne gebe ich den ersten drei Teilen.

Der vierte Teil ist für mich dagegen eine Enttäuschung. Ich hatte den Eindruck, dass sich die Geschichte nur noch mühevoll voranschleppt. Es brauchte Durchhaltevermögen, da einfach zu wenig passiert. Zu viele Wiederholungen, zu viele Details die mich nicht mehr begeistern konnten.

Auch die neuen Charaktere langweilten mich, die zudem sie die Hauptgeschichte noch weiter aufhalten.

Wer nicht das Tempo der ersten Teile erwartet, dem kann es sicherlich mehr Spaß machen als mir.

Falls es in Zukunft eine gekürzte Ausgabe geben wird, wäre das meine Empfehlung. Ein Drittel des Umfangs würde locker reichen, dann könnte es sogar spannend werden.

Total Enttäuscht

Würden Sie es noch mit einem anderen Hörbuch von George R. R. Martin und/oder Roy Dotrice versuchen?

Die ersten 3 Bücher waren grossartig. Mitreissend, grossartig gesprochen mit vielen gut imitierten unterschiedlichen Stimmen. Keine Ahnung was ich beim 4. Buch schlimmer finde, die endlose Beschreibung von Personen und Umgebung oder Roy Dortige als völlig gelangweilter Erzähler der ständig seine Stimmen durcheinander bringt. So hört sich die Königin wie ein altes Waschweib an, auch gerne mal gestandene Krieger. Die ersten drei Bücher habe ich in einem durch gehört, ich fahre jeden Tag 1.5h zur Arbeit, also 3h Zeit zum zuhören. Die ersten 3 Bücher waren so gut dass man sich jeden Morgen darauf freute, Buch 4 und 5 sind einfach endlos und total uninteressant, schlimmer noch, sie lassen einen fast einschlafen und teilweise sind einfach nervig. Nix passiert, keine Spannung und dann auch noch nervige Geräusche wie der olle Rabe der immer kräht oder wenn Roy sich mal wieder als "Kriegshorn" versucht und zwanzigmal zu oft tutet. Einfach Schade. Bin sogar in Versuchung gekommen mir das Buch nicht zu ende anzuhören, sowas mache ich nie.

großartiger Erzähler, schlechte Formatierung

Nachdem ich die Bücher gelesen hatte, wollte ich die Geschichte gleich noch einmal erleben und habe mir die Hörbücher gekauft. Ein großartiger Erzähler, der die Geschichte und die verschiedenen Figuren leben lässt! Uneingeschränkt empfehlenswert! Leider wurde aber irgendwo ein bisschen gespart, denn die Formatierung ist furchtbar. Die Perspektiven wechseln nicht kapitelweise, sondern mittendrin.

Langatmige Handlung und verwirrter Sprecher

Nachdem die ersten drei Bänder der "Game of Thrones"-Reihe sehr spannend waren, entwickelt sich dieser eher zäh. Es werden zig neue Figuren eingeführt, die bis ins kleinste Detail beschrieben werden - und bei denen sich dann herausstellt das sie keine Relevanz haben. Natürlich bleiben George R.R. Martin auch nicht mehr viele der altbekannten Protagonisten, nachdem diese in den vergangenen Bänden reihenweise ihr vorzeitiges Ende gefunden haben. Allerdings bewirkt das, dass man als Leser bzw. Zuhörer eher unmotiviert ist sich in neue und wieder neue Charaktere einzudenken, die dann wiederum nur dazu dienen ein Ereignis zu beschreiben, welches die Haupthandlung nur am Rande tangiert. Zwischendrin sprang übrigens mein Mp3-Player um eine halbe Stunde Vorlesezeit nach vorne, was aber keinerlei Auswirkung auf mein Verständnis der Handlung hatte. Stattdessen blieben mir 30 Minuten Beschreibung des Krönungstreffens für den Nachfolger von Balon Greyjoy auf den Iron Islands erspart - was für eine Erleichterung!

Die dürftige Handlung wird leider durch den Sprecher Roy Dotrice nicht verbessert. Dieser hatte sich bereits in Band 1-3 bemüht, die Charaktere möglichst unterschiedlich darzustellen. Das ist im Grunde ja sehr schön, auch wenn mir persönlich nicht so gefällt, wenn der Sprecher dann das keuchende Husten oder sehr feuchte Schniefen einer Figur sehr deutlich nachmacht (wenn ich das hören wollen würde, würde ich mir ein Hörspiel kaufen). Aber, bei so vielen Charakteren ist das zugegebenermaßen nicht leicht. Vielleicht liegt es an der hohen Anzahl an Figuren, dass Roy Dotrice nur etwa vier verschiedene Akzente zu haben scheint. Ich war mir zum Beispiel nie ganz sicher, ob er gerade Brienne spricht oder Ygritte. Interessanterweise klingen beide Damen so, wie er sie spricht, etwas dämlich. Aber das ist nur meine persönliche Meinung...
In Band 4 stellt sich dieser Aspekt allerdings als Problem dar. Offensichtlich konnte Roy Dotrice sich nicht mehr erinnern, welchen Protagonist er wie hat klingen lassen. Im Ergebnis klingen mehrere Figuren anders als zuvor. Insbesondere hat Arya nun Ygritte's/Brienne's Stimme bekommen, was äußerst schade ist. Auch Namen werden auf einmal anders ausgesprochen, sodass das Hörvergnügen insgesamt deutlich geschmälert ist.

Immerhin - nachdem die ersten Bände sehr viel Spaß gemacht haben, werde ich auch diesen Band zu Ende hören. Insbesondere möchte man natürlich wissen, wie es mit den Charakteren weitergeht, die die ersten drei Bände überlebt haben (viele sind es nicht). Aber ich weiß nicht ob ich empfehlen kann, die 30 € regulären Preis für dieses Hörbuch auszugeben. Dann lieber die Serie gucken, die ist auch nicht so langatmig!

Langsamere Erzählweise

Das vierte Buch von "A Song of Ice and Fire" führt die Geschichte in einem langsameren Tempo fort, als noch in "A Storm of Swords", welches bislang den Höhepunkt der Saga darstellt.

Die Geschichte ist immernoch gut erzählt und beinhaltet noch einige Überraschungen, doch die Größe des Dritten Teiles wird nicht erreicht.

Leider ist der Sprecher Roy Dotrice in diesem Buch nicht mehr ganz so passend, wie in den drei vorhergehenden. So spricht er plötzlich Namen anders aus und seine Interpretation von Aria, die in den drei Büchern vorher noch gut war, ist nun eine Katastrophe! Er lässt Aria klingen, als wäre sie eine 80 Jährige Frau, einfach nur schrecklich. Auch andere Charaktere werden plötzlich anders gesprochen, wie Sam oder Cersei, doch niemand ist so schlimm wie Aria, obwohl Sam manchmal klingt, als wäre er ziemlich zurückgeblieben, was nun nicht zu seinem Charakter passt.

So leidet die Geschichte leider unter des Vortrages von Herrn Dotrice doch sehr und das Hörvergnügen bleibt bei diesem Teil leider weitestgehend aus.

Ich hoffe inständig, das er sich zum fünften Teil wieder bessert....das er es besser kann hat er in den drei Büchern vorher bewiesen.
