As disappointing as Game of Thrones season 8

I have never rolled my eyes so many times listening to a book. The overall performance was good but the dialogue was just god awful and predictable. It may be just me but at points I laughed because the reaction and dialogue didn't match what a normal person would say or do in the current situation - it was just out of place.
The story also seemed to jump around and focus on small battles and side characters that we never really saw again as our main protagonists won her near flawless victory only losing very minor side characters. The battles we did hear about seemed short on details and glossed over mostly.
Overall, not great.

he said, she said, he said, they said. Good lord man the difference in the voices were good enough that we didn't need the he/she said. so annoying.
