Actually, there's only one book with two audio versions, A Feast for Crows, and both readers are British: John Lee and Roy Dotrice. Dotrice did books 1-3 and 5, but was unavailable when Feast was recorded, so Lee was brought in. Fans generally seem to have preferred Dotrice (who was also on Martin's TV series Beauty and the Beast, and played Hallyne in season two of Game of Thrones after illness prevented him from playing Pycelle), and eventually Feast was rerecorded with him. Personally, I wasn't wild about either of them, but preferred Lee. Dotrice is more of a performer, doing voices and animated line readings, but he's not always a clear and polished reader, which Lee definitely was.
Um, the first three books also have audiobooks read by an American named Roy Avers in addition to Roy Dotrice.
