Description

The complete, unabridged audiobook of A Feast for Crows.

HBO’s hit series A Game of Thrones is based on George R. R. Martin’s internationally best-selling series A Song of Ice and Fire, the greatest fantasy epic of the modern age. A Feast for Crows is the fourth volume in the series.

The Lannisters are in power on the Iron Throne.

The war in the Seven Kingdoms has burned itself out, but in its bitter aftermath new conflicts spark to life. The Martells of Dorne and the Starks of Winterfell seek vengeance for their dead. Euron Crow’s Eye, as black a pirate as ever raised a sail, returns from the smoking ruins of Valyria to claim the Iron Isles.

From the icy north, where Others threaten the Wall, apprentice Maester Samwell Tarly brings a mysterious babe in arms to the Citadel. As plots, intrigue and battle threaten to engulf Westeros, victory will go to the men and women possessed of the coldest steel and the coldest hearts.

©2005 George R.R. Martin (P)2011 HarperCollins

Critiques

"Fantasy literature has never shied away from grandeur, but the sheer mind-boggling scope of this epic has sent other fantasy writers away shaking their heads… Its ambition: to construct the Twelve Caesars of fantasy fiction, with characters so venomous they could eat the Borgias." ( Guardian)
"Truly epic...with its magnificent action-filled climax, it provides a banquet for fantasy lovers with large appetites." ( Publishers Weekly)

Excellente lecture, comme d'hab' !

Le talent d'écriture de M. Martin, et les talents de narration de M. Dotrice rendent l'écoute de ce livre palpitante et très intéressante ! Impossible de s'arrêter une fois qu'on a commencé !

Excellent

The details, the storyline, the characters... everything clicks. The reading is very good, though for 1 or 2 passages. it was annoying due to sniffing or coughing sounds. I don't think it was necessary to reproduce these elements of the concerned characters.

Can't get past the narration

What did you like about this audiobook?

The pov character of Cersei is interesting, she is such an important character in the series it feels like the audience is now privy to some new insights

How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

I am sad to say this is probably the least interesting book of the series, it is extremely difficult to connect emotionally with the characters but that's probably because the choice of characters used, being either new characters or secondary characters instead of the primary characters we have grown to love

Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

This book is a little off track and probably needs to be edited a bit and perhaps combined with book five

What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

I found the narration in this book unbearable to the point that I had to switch to hard cover. I actually don't believe this is Roy Dotrice or if it is then it wasn't him in previous books. I can live with the fact everyone sounds like pirates, I can forgive him for giving siblings different accents even though common sense would tell you that families that have lived together all their lives should sound like they are from the same country, but when I got to arya stark and the voice was the one used for mance Rayder I couldn't listen any more. I never understood why mance sounded like an old Irish peddler woman, I thought that was was pretty bad given his power and presence he is supposed to have but why is arya now Irish? And low class? Would it be too difficult to listen to previous narration and keep some consistency? My recommendation is to listen to the demo before purchasing this audio. So disappointing.

Do you have any additional comments?

Overall I love these books, books 1-3 were amazing and I think the last two will be of the same standard

Poor compared to the previous 3

What would have made A Feast for Crows (Part One) better?

Narration was poor - which is a shame as the I thought the first 3 were top notch.

Has A Feast for Crows (Part One) turned you off from other books in this genre?

No - this was an anomaly - part 5 got things back on track

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The accents differed from the previous 3 books. Quality was'nt as good.

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

Disappointment.

Terrible narration.

Frustrating pronunciation of main characters and places... The female voicing is beyond poor as well.

Roy Dotrice has failed

I admit I wasn't a great fan of Roy Dotrice to start with - he has a limited range and really only ever did justice to three or four characters at the most, I think. But in this book, he has changed the voice of Arya into that of a gutter-rat and Cersei into a shrieking banshee. Actually, Cersei seems to take on Joff's vocal range.
The story line continues to add in irrelevant characters. I'd like to see an abridged version of the whole story line. If I were reading the physical book, I dare say I'd be cutting out chapters. As it is, I tune out of Roy Dotrice's narration every now and then.

Narrator sucks

I managed to cope, just, when Roy would sometimes say character names wrong but mostly get them right in previous books in this series. eg sometimes Joffrey sometime Jeffrey

But in this book he has completely lost the plot - honestly doesn't he know their names?

It is driving me mad and if this wasn't the most incredible series I would not finish. It is the lady Catelyn, pronounced CAT - ilin, not KATElyn.

Truly it is ruining it for me and I keep yelling at the narrator who said her name right in all the previous books. There is another character he is pronouncing wrong in this book but I forget at this moment as I just raced here to log in after getting so frustrated. I hope someone can get the feedback to the narrator who should donate his time for free to correct the pronunciation on every character name and we should all receive a free copy in apology.

There, that feels better! (until I hear him again)

Roy what are you doing?

How could the performance have been better?

Roy Dotrice, is such an excellent narrator but why did you change the voices of the characters!

I know it was 5 years between books, but why???

Roy Dotrice is horrible, the story is very good

I know GRRM, the author, feels a great loyalty to the late Roy Dotrice so he was chosen to do the narration. But he was far too old and due to that his decision-making in adding accents, sound effects is bad and disturbing.

We need a fresh voice to redo all of the Song of Ice and Fire series. It is a mess currently - no matter how attached some are to the old narrator.

Bad audio

The audio quality is worse on this one then the previous 3, and for some reason a couple of key characters got completely new voices and accents.

What happened to the narration???

Would you listen to A Feast for Crows (Part One) again? Why?

Yes, as it is part of the series

How could the performance have been better?

Very poor narration, see comments below.

Any additional comments?

Although it had the same narrator as the previous books in the series, he for some reason changed the pronunciation of several of the characters names and their accents. Sometimes the accents changed mid-sentence! Don't know if he is getting too old for narrating but it really spoiled the story as you often had to mentally correct him, or couldn't work out which character was supposed to be talking. Very disappointing after the great job he did on the first 3 books.

Pirates?

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

with reservations - the story is good, but you need to know the other books. If the only way to catch up is to listen on train or bus, then it's fine.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jon Snow, Danaerys?

How could the performance have been better?

Why does everyone have to sound like pirates or Monty Python characters? Also, how many different ways can you pronounce Brienne? I appreciate the narration probably came before the TV series, but even so it seems ridiculous that everyone has these accents that make everyone sound like a rustic village idiot, no matter age or background. The women are even worse and all sound like crones or idiotic coquettes. If the dialogue was read in a less plodding way, that would make it so much better. The reader has a lovely voice but his interpretation is too ridiculous. Still, kudos for the hours he would have spent on this!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No.

Any additional comments?

Too many pirates & plodding rustics!

Full of audio glitches

The story and performance is the best.
The recording however has problems. There are many words that aren't clear. Specially in the beginning of sentences.

Editor destroyed Roy Dotrice's performance

Heavily edited to remove gaps and breaths which makes the speech flow extremely unnatural to the point where you can call it an unstructured string of words.
Roy Dotrice has been an excellent narrator throughout the previous parts of the story. This editing practice simply takes the life out of his performance. I cannot fathom how a production of this kind fails to understand the importance of (conscious!) breaks and pauses to the dramaturgy and thereby the emotional impact of a narration.
The already challenging multi-threaded plot style of the story gets even harder to follow.
A game- or more exactly story-breaker for me.

Sehr langatmig

Habe zwar zu Ende gehört, zwischendurch aber total abgeschaltet. Die ersten Bücher der Serie mochte ich und es gibt hier natürlich Momente, die ebenso begeistern. Aber insgesamt ist es irgendwie nicht fesselnd...

Hier verpasst man nichts

Was braucht dieses Hörbuch, um für Sie zu einem 4- oder 5-Sterne Hörerlebnis zu werden?

Es fehlt diesem Teil der Serie Game of Thrones an Handlung. Es sind fast 50 Stunden nur Gespräche von zig Charakteren, wobei die wichtigsten dabei nur selten bis gar nicht vorkommen.

Was hätte George R. R. Martin anders machen müssen, damit Sie das Hörbuch mehr genossen hätten?

Dieser Teil enthält kaum Handlungen, welche die Geschichte voran treiben.

Welche Szene hat Ihnen am besten gefallen?

Allein bei Aria und Sam sind einige Fortschritte zu erkennen, weitere Inhalte sind uninteressant.

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Dieses Buch braucht man nicht gehört oder gelesen zu haben, um den Rest der Geschichte weiter verfolgen zu können. Es war reine Zeitverschwendung.
