    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.

Rarely have I ever been as frustrated with a book as when I reached the end of A FEAST FOR CROWS - I didn't want it to end so soon! I can only imagine how that frustration would have grown had I read it when it was first published and had to wait years and years for the next book, but thankfully that won't happen! Probably my favorite book in the series so far due to Cersei Lannister's delicious antics in King's Landing as well as seeing more character development for everyone's favorite atypical boy from the Wall, Samwise. Plus, Brienne! (Also: Brienne! ;___; Maybe? Who the hell knows in this series...)

Thank goodness Martin promises a hell of a lot more Dany (and Tyrion!) in A DANCE WITH DRAGONS; they were sorely lacking in this one! ( )

This is about the audio edition...

The same narrator did this book as did the first three books, however in this one he decides to pronounce names differently than he did in the other three. i.e. 'Kate-lynn' Stark instead of 'Cat-lynn' Stark. The one that really confused me for a bit was 'Peter' Bailish where in the first three books he called him either 'P'Tah' or 'P'tire'. There were sone others, too, but those stick out in my mind. He also changed up some of the voices, notably Aria and Bryenne. All I'm saying is that with the same narrator it should be consistent. In nearly 100 discs the narrator brought to life this world, then he changes the fundamentals in the middle. Not cool. It did hamper my enjoyment of the story because I had to keep reminding myself who was who.

I still really liked this book. I'm invested in the characters and want to read about them more and more. But, this book is nowhere near as great as the others. Especially the way the last one ended I expected to be blown away by this one. I will definitely continue reading the series though. ( )

A feast for crows by George R.R. Martin (A song of ice and fire #4) Three stars from me. Maybe I was expecting too much, but there was nothing too interesting happening. It felt like a book of transition.
 
I hate to think that the next book covers the same time period as this one, only with my least favorite characters, except for Tyrion. ( )

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.

GAME OF THRONES: A NEW ORIGINAL SERIES, NOW ON HBO.

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.

A FEAST FOR CROWS

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.
