Discovering Roy Dotrice and his 500 voices


It is no secret that I have sold myself to audiobooks, devoting time to “reading” at least 12 books a year from my iPod. And it was with such audacity that I invested time to a reading of book one of A Song of Fire and Ice: A Game of Thrones by famous fantasy author George R. R. Martin. The audiobook spans 33 hours and is read by British actor Roy Dotrice, who voices over 500 characters (you might know him from Hellboy II: The Golden Army and The Cutting Edge).

Yes 500 voices. Such is the world of Martin’s fantasy. All voiced by Roy.

Wonder how he remembers them all. Wonder why I have the book version and the audio as well. Hm.
