What separates Lloyd from Dotrice
There is no argument that Martin's writing style is excellent for listening and not all fictional works are. Some are awkward when read aloud. However, it does make a difference who reads it. Maybe it's the breathing, the phrasing or whatever--but listening to Dotrice feels like you're sitting at your grandfather's feet while he tells you a story. Maybe some people prefer that. But others like me, not so much. It just gets in the way when you are listening to the reader rather than the story.
Lloyd literally disappears in the narrative and you forget you are being read to. The immersion is that good.
