If you could sum up A Feast for Crows (Part One) in three words, what would they be?

More of the same.

What did you like best about this story?

It is a prefect continuation of thye Songs of Ice and Fire series

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

All the other books in Songs of Ice and Fire. In fact I bought volume 4 on CD when Audible for some unaccountable reason was not offering it. The narrator on the CD version was just not as good as Roy Doltrice which is why when I decided to re-listen to the series I bought the audible version. I so like his voice.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Just fascination with a great story.

  • War and Peace, Volume 2

War and Peace is one of the greatest monuments in world literature. Set against the dramatic backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars, it examines the relationship between the individual and the relentless march of history. Here are the universal themes of love and hate, ambition and despair, youth and age, expressed with a swirling vitality which makes the book as accessible today as it was when it was first published in 1869.

I read War and Peace about thirty years ago. Having now completed listening to both volumes all I can say is it is better than I remembered. As a twenty year old I was obsessed with the lives of the protagonists. Now I'm in my fifties I was much more interested in Tolstoy's discussion of the how the war happened almost independently of the activities of Emperors and Generals. The final epilogue to volume 2 is a fascinating discussion of free will.



The narration was excellent throughout. I will definitely be listening to some more "classics".
