    Book 4 was my least favorite too. But then youhave to remember it is reallyOnly half a book as grrm divided the book by characters and we will hear the story about the remaining characters in a dance with dragons. I thought the idea did not work as it really feels like being left hanging in a way. I expect that the book will be more enjoyable in himdsight as soon as the next one comes out.

    Has anyone listened to these on audio (I'm positive Hedwig surely has?)
    I have a 50% coupon at Borders and am going to see if they have the first book. I absolutely love listening to both HP and LOTR on audio. I read so fast there are always things I miss that I catch on the audio book.

    I'm not going to get into specifics, but it's certainly frozen over.

    All right! My 50% off coupon at borders is going for the book. I love getting multidisc audio books for long trips.

    I love it too. I often use audio books when jogging. That is perfect in order not to get bored.
    Roy Dotrice is the guy who reads the first three books. He is doing the 5th again.
    He wasn't available for the 4th. I hope he will maybe record it as well at a later time...He sometimes makes weird mistakes like getting the emphasis on a sentence wrong so that it means something else but he is great in doing the different characters like Jim Dale and Stephen Fry did for the HP books. (yes, I have both versions. )

    I loved Jim Dale. Until he changed the voice for Professor Black's portrait in the last book.

    emason,

    Spoiler

    I'm 480 pages in and hoping for a big payoff...


    Hedwig - thanks for that clearing up, it makes sense and makes me hope Book 5 makes up for a lot of my thoughts above...

    I must say I can't stand how he voices Tyrion though. He makes him sound like the leprechaun from the Lucky Charms commericals.

    It completely jars with the image of Peter Dinklage, which is how I picture Tyrion in my mind's eye now.

    I really liked the last episode, lot of great quotes (Varys and Tyrion who ) and eeeeeek moments with Lysa and SweetRobin, poor boy , and Sir Gregor smashes (horses and whatever crosses his way).

    Loved the Eyrie and Cersei/Robert conversation.
