The narration leaves much to be desired.

First off, the book is incredible, extremely detailed and fleshed out. However, the narration leaves much to be desired. From odd pronunciations to flat out mispronunciations of character names and locations within the world, to the narrators inability to keep character voices the same throughout the book, I can't help but feel the Game of Thrones audio book series would benefit from a better narrator.

In a series with literally thousands of characters is does not bode well that the majority of characters sound roughly the same, be they men or women, though the female character voices are vastly worse than their male counterparts.
