Sad production errors make for flawed listening

The story lines of the book are generally as we would expect from Diana but sadly the production lacks so so much. Far too many errors:- The re-recordings that end up with repeated sections cause frustration to the listener. The performers fake upper class British accent is rather distracting. So many English words said in that fake British accent that are wrongly pronounced it quite ruins the whole book.

Where does A Game of Thrones rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Brilliant book - well written and beautifully read.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Game of Thrones?

the descriptions which make amazing pictures in my head.

Have you listened to any of Roy Dotrice’s other performances? How does this one compare?

First time listening to Roy but well read and loved his voices.

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

I could only wish I had time to listen to it in one sitting.

Sadly!

The narrator leaves this stormy novel cold and unfeeling. The story doesn't work well read aloud.

Having read all of Gregory's books I knew the story, but listening to it being read to me on my commutes was sometimes breath taking - brilliant performance to go with a fantastic writer
