Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Long-awaited doesn't begin to describe this fourth installment in bestseller Martin's staggeringly epic Song of Ice and Fire. Speculation has run rampant since the previous entry, A Storm of Swords, appeared in 2000, and Feast teases at the important questions but offers few solid answers. As the book begins, Brienne of Tarth is looking for Lady Catelyn's daughters, Queen Cersei is losing her mind and Arya Stark is training with the Faceless Men of Braavos; all three wind up in cliffhangers that would do justice to any soap opera. Meanwhile, other familiar faces—notably Jon Snow, Tyrion Lannister and Daenerys Targaryen—are glaringly absent though promised to return in book five. Martin's Web site explains that Feast and the forthcoming A Dance of Dragons were written as one book and split after they grew too big for one volume, and it shows. This is not Act I Scene 4 but Act II Scene 1, laying groundwork more than advancing the plot, and it sorely misses its other half. The slim pickings here are tasty, but in no way satisfying. (Nov.)

This is one of my favourite book series, and so when i got my hands on the fourth book i was expecting it to be just as amazing as the first three books. In this respect i was disappointed. Its not that this book wasn't good- far from it i believe that it is very interesting and well written. However, the third book ended on such a high note- and also a huge cliffhanger for Arya, Tyrion and Dany- that i REALLY wanted to find out what would happen next. Unfortunately, these characters were sort of brushed aside (although Arya was in the book she was not as central as i would have liked her to be). I felt like the storyline drifted a little bit- mostly because all my favourite characters were pushed aside- and so this is my least favourite book so far in the series. That being said, i DID give it a 4 star review because it is STILL awesome.

I honestly don't understand why some people complained about the book. If your reasons for not liking it are because Tyrion or Dany weren't in it, then that's the stupidest reason not to like it. The book helps give new perspectives of other characters in the world, and it also gives a chance for the reader to learn more about what's going on all throughout Westeros, especially within the Iron Islands and Dorne. This was very well done simply because it gives a chance for GRRM to make the world and the story even bigger, which allows for an even greater and more epic conclusion at the end of the series.

A Feast for Crows marks a departure from the previous books in this series in a number of ways. Firstly, you don't see the perspectives of all the key players in the Game of Thrones. Only half of the characters will have their stories told. The other half have their stories told in the subsequent novel, A Dance of Dragons. As such, the novels take place simultaneously, whereas the series was previously told chronologically.

I do not like this new style. After finishing Crows and (at the point) getting about halfway through Dragons, I certainly feel that the pace of the story is much slower. And in an intricate and highly detailed story, it can be difficult to go back and think to yourself while reading Dragons, 'ok, this happens when blankedy-blank happens in Crows'.

There are a few websites out there run by what I can only assume to be dedicated superfans, who have stitched the timeline of the two books together for other readers. If you are willing to read Crows and Dragons simultaneously, these sites outline the sequence of chapters from the books to give you a chronological timeline.

I enjoyed A Feast for Crows but not nearly as much as I enjoyed A Storm of Swords. Then again, how could you top a book that contained both the Red and the Purple Weddings?!

A lot of new, seemingly unimportant characters are introduced in this one, from The Prophet, and The Captain of the Guards to The Reaver, The Iron Captain, The Drowned Man and the Queenmaker. While I'm sure they will contribute to the breadth of the story later on, as I was reading, it felt like filler. It was difficult to keep track of everyone and I missed the heavyhitters who were saved for Dragons, like Dany.

“A Feast for Crows” is the fourth book in George R. R. Martin’s series ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’, and this story revolves around King’s Landing, where the 8-year old Tommen Baratheon ‘rules’ under the aegis of his mother Cersei Lannister, who, more than ever, proves that no deed is too evil for her, no liaison too taboo, and no trust too sacred.

For me, this has been the weakest of the series - for the sole reason that a lot of the main characters such as Tyrion Lannister, Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow are absent. That said it was still interesting to know more about such important characters as Brienne of Tarth, Sansa Stark, Samwell Tarly, Asha and Victarion Greyjoy of Pyke, and rising star Margaery Tyrell.

An interesting feature in this book was the presentation of certain events where the reader is privy to certain events unknown to the characters themselves, such as the meeting of Lady Olenna Redwyne and Cersei. Additionally, enough hints are presented to really pique an interest in events to come! Maester Aemon’s mention of Daenerys Targaryen as the one, Lady Genna’s talk with Jaime about Tyrion, Petyr Baelish’s pronouncement about the ‘game of thrones’ … all point to wild winds of change.

I have to make a special mention of the House of Black and White in Braavos, the temple of the Faceless Men, where we spend some time along with Arya Stark - the house was gorgeous, its people very mysterious, and that section left quite an impression.

Overall, there is a prevailing sense of grittiness and violence - including violence of language and sexual violence - that encompasses this book. As Jaime reflects at one point, “This is a time for beasts, for lions and wolves and angry dogs, for ravens and carrion crows.”

I must admit that at times I found the book a bit slow in moving ahead. I really do miss some of the characters, Tyrion, Arya. I feel that the series is being written like a "afternoon soap opera". That's not a bad thing for what the author is doing. The story jumps from one person to another. Every time moving the various plots a bit. It's a global story as seen by various characters that are being affected. My predictions after the third book are all wrong! I like that I can't predict the story. The intrigue, the plotting, the scheme continues. Every character is having an impact on what is unfolding. I was sad to seem so characters that I liked, ended. I would have liked to see more about other characters that seemed to be left out, yet I enjoyed how some other characters have changed. Additional characters were added. I am not sure I like that. I would have prefered staying with all the characters already available. Not sure about the other comments concerning the length of the book. It was length not boring! I found myself always caught in reading the next chapter. I really like that the chapters are the names of the characters that the story continues with. I am amazed(pleased!) that the author hasn't "filled the book" with unneeded repetitions of stories already written in previous books. So far the series is well worth the money. Anxious to start book 5...will it be the last? Does the story finally have a happy ever after?
