あらすじ・解説

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

批評家のレビュー

"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)

Whats going on with the accents?

I'm a little bit disappointed with the narration of book four. After listening to book one, two and three, I eagerly awaited the release of book four, which seemed to be the only one, out of the five novels missing on Audible. Roy Dotrice brings the books to life, with brilliant narration, giving each character a different accent so that the listener can easily recognise them, however I think that Roy Dotrice had forgotten the accent he gave the characters in the first three books, because he's changed them completely in book four, for example, Arya Stark goes from sounding like a young girl in the first three books, to sounding like an Irish granny in book four, very off putting.

Was this recording edited at all?

I cannot for the life of me give more than 3 stars because Dotrice makes a complete mess of the fourth volume: he's forgotten how he has pronounced the names in the previous books and manages within 10 minutes to say Brienne in 4 different ways. Was there ANY editing involved in recording of this book? And suddenly Arya sounds like a wildling. Unfortunately I do not have time for the paperbacks, so I will struggle through the fifth one as well, dreading what Dotrice does with that already beforehand.

Poor introduction of new characters

Poor old Roy has lost it! Accents, voice pitch and names change constantly and I for one cant keep up. As if the introduction of the new characters was not enough!? For me it was that strange i even used the internet to make sure i was listening to the correct book...I may give up, which is a shame because books 1-3 blew me away.

Worst one yet for continuity of accents

I'm really enjoying this series, but poor old Roy Dotrice is really losing track of all the accents. I know it's a cast of thousands and nobody expects him to find a completely different voice for each character, but when the apparent age and accent of a key individual changes not just between books, but between chapters, it's really quite distracting. Hate to say it, but I don't think it's good enough.

Very frustrating

I can only echo what many other reviewers have said - the narration of this book is a complete nightmare. Not only to character voices and name pronunciations changes compared to books 1-3, but they actually change chapter to chapter. It's a huge shame when the quality of the audio becomes the big issue rather than the quality of the text itself.



Not good enough Audible.

Completely Frustrating!

Well, i have listened all the previous books in the series and i didnt have a major issue with the narration of Roy Dotrice....until now! He Seems to have completely forgotten everything he did previous. Well established characters now have completely different voices (no argument can be made for 'some years have passed' as the book continues immediately from the last)

I could perhaps suffer this and continue through if it wasnt for the inconsistent pronunciation of characters and places like 3 different ways to say Tyrell all in the same chapter, it doesnt get any better, Brienne has no less than 3 too!

Dotrice also seems to ignore grammar.

The Audio quality is very poor unlike the previous books, it sounds as though it was recorded in some sort of hollow container.

Some chapters there are no pauses, so its not immediately obvious that you are now listening to another.

Unfortunately as my title suggests i found this very frustrating, and, at times infuriatring. I wont be listening to anymore, so will have to find time to read the books.



Thanks for nothing Audible!

It's all getting to be a bit of a struggle

I'm really beginning to lose patience. World building is one thing but GRRM appears not to have an editor. The story full of self-indulgent ramblings that add nothing - the editing was so much tighter for the first couple of books and all the better for it. The level of violence has been upped to the extent that it is now the default response to everything. At no point does a woman have a friendship with another woman which just odd. At almost no point is anyone kind to anyone else - this does happen in real life, GRRM, honest! The threat of sexual violence and the associated language is constant. If I have to hear one more man describing how he plans to mutilate and rape someone, I shall not be responsible for my actions (insert threat of forcing brutally detached organ into inappropriate place here). Yes, I know there's a war or three going on and it's vaguely medieval and yadda yadda yadda but REALLY it's a bit wearing and humans behaving with humanity would provide a welcome counterpoint to the general treachery and murderousness.

Roy Dotrice - Having established a character's voice over the preceding three books, it's incredibly irritating and sloppy to have it change. For instance, Petyr Baelish has become and old generic northern man and even more jarring his name is now pronounced Peter. I found this distracting every single time. Whilst I understand that these have been recorded over several years, I do feel that consistency of character voices should have been considered. Don't the producers keep a record?

I suppose I'm going to push on with Dance with Dragons having devoted so many hours of my life to the story so far but more in the spirit of a chore to get through than delightful anticipation.

Terrible Naration

The narration of the first three books was a little hit-and-miss. Accents changed from book to book, but it was largely forgiveable. Tywin Lannister, for instance, went from annoying Welshman in book two to a grating and totally unfitting impersonation of Churchill in three. That was bad enough, but in this book the ages, voices and regional accents change from chapter to chapter, and sometimes on the same "page". Arya Stark is from Ulster now it seems, and almost every character sounds over eighty?
Dotrice did the best job you could expect in the first three books. With so many characters no one could demand different voices for them all, but in this one he's really lost the plot.
It also seems this book was not edited at all. Several times Dotrice makes mistakes in accents, or reads narration in a characters voice, but no attempt has been made to edit this out, he just carries on regardless. Similarly, no effort seems to have gone into the audio quality. It starts muffled and flat, and either gradually improves, or I grew used to it. Either way, it's very poor.
Considering the money Audible charges for these books (especially splitting them in two to milk buyers for every penny), the quality of this audio book is completely unacceptable. Would it have been too much to ask for the producer to brief Dotrice on how he portrayed the characters previously - before recording started? The narration is so bad that it becomes distracting from what would otherwise be an excellent book.

Pretty bad

I was going to write quite a lengthy review wondering why Tyrion is Welsh and Cersei sounds like a panto dame at least 30 years older than Jaime, why the pronunciation of places and names is completely inconsistent and why Brienne sounds like an American who's never spoken to a British person doing an impersonation of what they imagine a village idiot sounded like in the middle ages... but I see that previous reviewers have already covered this ground.

It's a terrible misrepresentation of the characters and it ruins the book. I second the appeal for Rupert Degas instead of Dotrice. At least his regional accents are plausible.

The story is great though, and I recommend reading it spliced together with the following book. I also recommend avoiding this complete mess of an recording altogether.

Amazing story, frustrating narration

As the other reviews have said, the characters accents are all over the place (I was always puzzelled as to why Tyrian and Jamie had Welsh accents and Cercie and Tywin didn't) and now alot of them seem to have changed voices completely, so it becomes hard to keep track of who you are listening to. I'm also getting really cross because in this books the prounciation of characters names have changed. I can't remember them all at the moment but two examples are that Gilly has now become Jilly, Petyr is suddenly Peter and so on. I can only imagine what a titanic task this would be for any actor, but someone should be keeping notes as to how each character speaks (I miss Dolores Ed's stumbling voice) and how their names are prounced, it really interupts the listeners enjoyment. Can I add a plea for them to use Rupert Degas for the next book, he is AMAZING, the best I've ever listened to. I love this story it's totally engrossing, but these issues are ruining it for me and I'm not sure I'll bother with the next one.

What happened 2 the PRONUNCIATION???

In this, and its companion book, though read by the same person, who'd been reading the *last EIGHT* instalments of this EPIC; I come to two books, where main Characters' names have changes [Cat-lyn is now Kait-lyn]. Main places [Myhr is now Meer] & the list goes on & on. I overlooked the *odd* mispronunciation of words such as lichen, et al, through the first 6 books, but- Really; A few ppl have *not done their jobs*, not just the narrator… this *has* to be edited etc too. It's frustrating, takes away from a wonderful story, & is sloppy work from many, who are making much $$$$. Surely there was a pronunciation guide - & surely it *should* have been used consistently.
Very, Very Disappointed.

Good story but disappointing narration

Would you be willing to try another one of Roy Dotrice’s performances?

If anything after listening to this book I would go and read the rest of the series - it's so frustrating to have the characters names pronounced so differently than in the first three books. It's almost like there is a different narrator and I expected a lot better. I really enjoy the story itself, lots of twists and turns and enjoyable characters.

Worst narration of the series so far...

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

This is a good book. Good, not great. It's a bit dull after a Storm of Swords which is fantastic, and the narration is the worst yet.

This is one I'd recommend reading the actual book. Narration is painful.

What other book might you compare A Feast for Crows to, and why?

The others in the Song of Ice and Fire series.

How could the performance have been better?

As previously stated, this is the WORST narration. Roy Dotrice clearly did not bother to listen to his previous narrations of this series before recording this book.

Pronunciation of the names has changed, and every other character sounds like they are evil leprechauns. It's shocking. He really let's this book down.

Any additional comments?

This is one worth reading - skip the audiobook.

Narrator?

The narrator changed his style - how names were said, and how characters sounded. It was really annoying. Still a good book with a good narrator though.

a great audio book.

this was my first audio book. I have read several game of thrones books and I am familiar with the narrative and characters.

at first I was not a fan of Roy Dotrice, but looking back I think he does a great job. at times I had imagined characters voices differently when I read prior books in the series (Brienne as an example). However, a narrator must interpret the material as well as read, and this is the nature is the medium. The narrator manages many different characters well and remains engaging throughout.

overall, this a great novel, and a very good reading. highly recommended.

Dotrice performance is great.

With so many characters a performance is essential. Dotrice manages this comfortably. Of minor initial annoyance is it seems between recordings of this and the last book Dotrice's memory of what voice he used and how he pronounced certain names has changed. Not a problem only mildly annoying at first if you come straight from the last book. On the story, Martin continues a good yarn, however the pace is fairly leisurely!

Why?

Very disappointed with the characters names being pronounced differently. How is something like this overlooked?
Character’s accents are different and sometimes interchanged from earlier books. Extremely irritating

Dotrice should leave the accents out.

Dotrice uses a few voices interchangeably. sometimes the story will return to a character only to find that their accent has changed completely. you'd think that if he where unsure about a character's voice he could have just listened back to his recordings. it really interferes with the listener's perception of the characters. not to mention he makes everyone sound like a lack wit. I would prefer it if he just left the voices out.

Losing his way? And it is BREE-ENN damnit!

I loved the first 3 books despite becoming more and more frustrated with the often strange accent choices of the Narrator, Roy Dotrice. Obviously an amazing voice with a strong grasp of accents, but in the end it seems to be the same dopey or childish or sleazy voices being used over and over. It's disconcerting when children sound like they've been smoking and drinking heavily since they were in nappies 100 years ago. And why do some Dorns sound like leprechauns? And did Arya foster with them? When did she become a leprechaun? Even worse, his plain WRONG pronunciation of important character names, especially the oft-encountered BRY-EEN (?!?!) of Tarth. When has "ENNE" ever been pronounced "EEN" before?! Eye rolling from me every time I hear it. I'm sorry but it is has become harder and harder to ignore. Add to that the meandering path the author has taken - seemingly losing his way, and I am quickly losing interest. I wanted to hear more about Jon, Sam, Catelyn (especially after the ending of Storm of Swords! Wow!), Tyrion and instead I'm getting bogged down in boring, clumsily put together dialogues about the Iron Isles and Dorn and receiving downloads of lists of historical names from never before encountered characters who mean nothing to me. Trying hard to make myself listen to the last half of the book, there must be something good in it, and after the debacle the TV series turned into I really want to see the story I fell in love with redeemed and completed rather than drifting away or demolished for nothing. But so far there has not been a single eye opening chapter. Not one. Would love to be able to recommend it but I can't, unless you're immune to all of the above issues that I can't ignore.
