I'm a very in-depth reader. I love books more than I like tea. That's saying a lot. Although both are great together. Also a writer myself
Weddings are of particular significance in the series. The culture, language, captivation amplifies a story much like our own but so originally based that the story seems on the verge of reality, minus the blood magic and giants. The book is truly stunning. The deaths start piling and you fear for your favorite character's life but at the same are so astonished with the cumulating deaths that you have to ask yourself. What's next? Exhilarating, pacing, and worth the wait. I'd say it's the best book yet in the series, but I'm highly anticipating the release of Winds of Winter.
A Feast for Crows is similar to A Clash of Kings, the second book of the Ice and Fire series. The parallels are entreatingly similar. The kings themselves, the fight for power, and underlying of justice. This guy stands on top and then this guy stands on top and it all means nothing in the end and only one thing is certain. Death. Well, maybe.
Not particularly, cause could never finish a book that massive in a short period of time, but it was certainly enthralling and it was great to pace myself throughout the story making similar connections in my own life. These books are read not all at once, but in time. Cause it is worth it.
This book is the best so far that I know of. The stories are always intriguing and you're always wanting more. HBO has done a well portrayal and I give them props for carrying out George R.R. Martin's work.
The story was quite good and so was the performance. However the pronunciation of names(pet-ire to Peter, Ash-a-ee to Ass-ai etc..)and the sounds of voices diverged from the previous books despite no change in narrator. I was mildly put off.
I would venture to guess there was a delay in production between the two or something. While I find it forgivable and it doesn't take away from the book, it did cause me to lower my rating of performance to 4/5.
That guy you think you know...but don't.
Roy Dotrice was great, but the story was so boring. Too many povs on unknown characters, none for Arya, Jon, Tyrion, Bran, hard to stomach how slow and dull this was.
This is the worst of the series. you can skip it and don't miss much. Far to many words wasted on characters we don't care about.
I've read the entire series in paperback and could hardly put it down the whole time, but listening to this narrator was such torture i couldn't get past a few chapters. Every female character sounds like pompous old hag. This narrator is the worst casting decision since Hayden Christensen did Anakin Skywalker. Don't waste your money.
