    swampygirl: Reading this book made me feel like I was rereading all of Pierce's books over again, and this one probably matches up the most closely.

Eat from what you have cooked to others Cersei *evil laugh* ha ha ha ha :P

So this book has neglected many characters. Not that the writer forgot them, oh no he did not. He mentioned at the end of the book that he wrote about them but the book has become to big to be published in one volume that's why some characters have been cut. I really wanted to read about them.

Well, the book didn't have much to say, but i loved the events. What have become of Cersei and Jaime. Also Arya and how Sansa's name has been changed to Alayne.

The first book was a struggle, the second book was bit easier. But the third and fourth book were really easy to read and comprehend. We are introduced to new characters in this book but still it was very easy to read and finish in a short time considering it's almost 700 pages. ( )

I literally wiped my ass with this book because I ran out of toilet paper.
Boring trite shite. Shit charakters, shit world, shit writing. And it makes for horrible toilet paper too!
Probably because there is so much shit on it already. ( )
  Zoiber | Oct 10, 2016 |
A downgrade from 3, mainly because of those dreadful parts to do with Dorne. The beginning is so god-awful I almost gave up reading.

The nasty stuff with Cersei and Qyburn comes to the plot's rescue, and saves Cersei's character from being the total disappointing drag that it had previously been.

The refreshingly linear sideplot with Brienne is perhaps one of my favorite aspects of the series so far. Martin writes in a classically romantic style in a very believable and earnest way.

No Tyrion, unfortunately, but that dullard Davos was nowhere to be found. I was happy with the trade.

Martin is getting painfully lazy with his descriptions of sunlight slanting through windows, etc. Hope he adds a little more panache for the 5th. ( )

This book literally took me months to read. Quite boring until the wrap up chapters at the end.

Final Thoughts:
Not enough Arya
Too much Iron Islands
Cersi, you're an idiot
Jamie, it's about time you grew a pair
Littlefinger is playing almost as long a game as Doran Martell is... Holy hot damn ( )

A bit slower. Less action. More people. Sometimes confusing. But in the end lots of cliffhangers. ( )

In the wrong hands, a big ensemble like this can be deadly, but Martin is a tense, surging, insomnia-inflicting plotter and a deft and inexhaustible sketcher of personalities... this is as good a time as any to proclaim him the American Tolkien.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 055358202X, Mass Market Paperback)


Few books have captivated the imagination and won the devotion and praise of readers and critics everywhere as has George R. R. Martin’s monumental epic cycle of high fantasy. Now, in A Feast for Crows, Martin delivers the long-awaited fourth book of his landmark series, as a kingdom torn asunder finds itself at last on the brink of peace . . . only to be launched on an even more terrifying course of destruction.


It seems too good to be true. After centuries of bitter strife and fatal treachery, the seven powers dividing the land have decimated one another into an uneasy truce. Or so it appears. . . . With the death of the monstrous King Joffrey, Cersei is ruling as regent in King’s Landing. Robb Stark’s demise has broken the back of the Northern rebels, and his siblings are scattered throughout the kingdom like seeds on barren soil. Few legitimate claims to the once desperately sought Iron Throne still exist—or they are held in hands too weak or too distant to wield them effectively. The war, which raged out of control for so long, has burned itself out.

But as in the aftermath of any climactic struggle, it is not long before the survivors, outlaws, renegades, and carrion eaters start to gather, picking over the bones of the dead and fighting for the spoils of the soon-to-be dead. Now in the Seven Kingdoms, as the human crows assemble over a banquet of ashes, daring new plots and dangerous new alliances are formed, while surprising faces—some familiar, others only just appearing—are seen emerging from an ominous twilight of past struggles and chaos to take up the challenges ahead.

It is a time when the wise and the ambitious, the deceitful and the strong will acquire the skills, the power, and the magic to survive the stark and terrible times that lie before them. It is a time for nobles and commoners, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and sages to come together and stake their fortunes . . . and their lives. For at a feast for crows, many are the guests—but only a few are the survivors.

From the Hardcover edition.
