Smarch the audiobooks

I'm very interested in your opinions on the audiobook.

I listened to the first two chapters and am kind of underwhelmed by the performancde of Dick Hill.
I will listen some more before a give a final judgement but am interested in other opinions.

Do you like it or don't you?

Re: Smarch the audiobooks

I listened to HISTORY IOF EOIN and the PREULDE today, and I have to say that I think Hill's performance is good, but not outstanding. There is always a hint of melodrama in his voice and if here were about to declamate something. Earlier today I listed again to the beginning of A GAME OF THRONES narrated by Roy Dotrice and I think that Dotrice's performance is superior, because he is going for a realistic reading. With Hill everything seems larger than life. But I suppose his reading will do.


Writing books, especially long books, is a careful balance between laziness and masochism.
